Psoriasis

Aalgo’s nutrient-rich, deep exfoliating properties gently rid the skin of psoriasis.

Swimming in the sea and going to the Dead Sea have been known for decades to alleviate the visible symptoms of psoriasis, but it will all too often re-occur after a few months.
Aalgo turns your bath water into sea water successfully minimizing the visible symptoms of psoriasis and keeping them away.
Psoriasis cannot be cured but keeping it under control is what we aim to help you do.

Usage

Add 2 tablespoons of Aalgo to a lukewarm bath and soak for 20 minutes. After bathing, pat your skin dry to allow continued absorption of the seaweed. Bathe 2-3 times a week until your skin is smooth, then reduce to once a week to maintain the results. We would also recommend using the Atlantic Seaweed Soap Bar for your body thereafter as this will not irritate your skin during a bath or shower.

When healing just one area of severely dry or irritated skin, mix 1 heaped teaspoon of Aalgo with hot water, allow to cool to blood temperature and apply on the area as a cream. After 5 minutes gently remove in a lukewarm Aalgo bath, this will speed up the exfoliation.

How to use

Plaque Psoriasis:

For the white dry scaling parts on the arms and legs:

    • The first time mix Aalgo with hot water to a paste and allow cool to blood temperature. Cover the affected areas with the paste and wrap in transparent film (cling film).
    • Leave on for 45minites to an hour.
    • Add 2 tablespoons of Aalgo to a LUKEWARM bath.
    • In the bath remove the paste gently with a sponge; this removes the dead and dry skin leaving bright red or purple blotches.
    • Lie back in the bath with the muscles at the back of the neck in the water so that you fully relax.
    • Pat your skin dry.

Maintenance:

  • Have a LUKEWARM Aalgo bath daily until totally clear. The length of time this will take varies from person to person, a minimum of 4 weeks.
  • We are trying to keep an invisible residue of Aalgo on your skin, which is absorbed through the pores and works from the inside out to re-hydrate the skin. The blotches will gradually decrease in size finally disappearing.
  • When clear reduce the baths to twice a week for a couple of weeks and then try to go to 3 baths a fortnight to maintain the clear skin.
  • We recommend our Atlantic Seaweed Soap Bar when washing in the bath or shower to prevent irritation.

Inverse & Erythrodermic Psoriasis:

  • Add 2 tablespoons of Aalgo to a LUKEWARM bath and soak.
  • After 20mins just pat yourself dry. While you are in the bath it is acting as a healer and when you get out there will be an invisible residue on your skin which you will absorb through your pores and it hydrates the skin from the inside out.
  • Keep bathing daily and you will gradually feel the amazing relief on your skin. (This can take between 4-6weeks)
  • When clear have an Aalgo bath twice a week
  • We recommend our Atlantic Seaweed Soap Bar when washing in the bath or shower to prevent irritation.
  • Never use very hot water in either a shower or bath.

Postular Psoriasis:

  • For the feet mix Aalgo with hot water to a cream.
  • Cool to blood temperature and apply to the soles of the feet and all around the heals.
  • Cover loosely with cling film, put on socks leave on overnight.
  • In the morning rinse your feet in a basin of LUKEWARM water and rub the area with your hands, pat dry.
  • IF YOU ARE A DIABETIC do NOT leave on OVERNIGHT only leave on for about half an hour and then rinse off in a basin of water,
  • Continue having an Aalgo foot spa daily until totally clear – then once or twice per week to keep clear.
  • When showering, always have a basin with enough water and some Aalgo dissolved in it outside the shower for you to step into after the shower – this will remove all the residue of shampoos, shower gels, soap etc that are in the foot well of the shower and prevent your feet from healing.
  • Never use very hot water in either a shower or bath.
  • We recommend our Atlantic Seaweed Soap Bar when washing in the bath or shower to prevent irritation to the feet.

Scalp Psoriasis:

THESE INSTRUCTIONS ARE FOR ADULTS ONLY.
IF YOU HAVE CHILDREN WITH THE PROBLEM PLEASE CONTACT US FOR INSTRUCTIONS.

Scalp psoriasis appears as red, itchy areas with silver-white scales. You may notice flakes of dead skin in your hair or on your shoulders, especially after scratching your scalp. The scaly patches, which may bleed when removed, may extend beyond the hairline.

    • Please note with tinted hair always do a strand test behind the ear.
    • Mix 2 teaspoons of Aalgo powder with a small tub of natural yogurt to a cream.
    • Cover the wet hair and scalp with the mixture.
    • Wrap the hair with transparent film (cling film), keeping behind the ears and above the forehead.
    • Put on a shower cap
    • Cover pillow with an old dark towel
    • Leave on overnight (Again only for adults).
    • (If you have colour in your hair or highlights only leave on for 45 minutes – DO NOT LEAVE ON OVERNIGHT)
    • Wash out in the morning with Aalgo shampoo bar
    • Repeat for 3 nights, then repeat every second day leaving on for 15minutes until totally clear.
    • This exfoliates away all the dead and dry skin, stops the itch and flaking scalp.
    • Use Aalgo Seaweed Shampoo bar to keep the scalp clear.

Nail Psoriasis:

  • Use large clear plastic gloves.
  • Mix Aalgo powder with hot water into a cream. Cool to blood temperature and fill the fingers of the gloves with the Aalgo cream. Put your hands into the gloves – do not push to the end of the fingertips – this will cover the nails and cuticles with the paste.
  • Leave on for 30mins then rinse your hands in a basin of lukewarm water, pat hands dry and go to bed – doing this just before bed allow the invisible residue of the seaweed to be absorbed through the pores and nails during the night.
  • Do this daily for 6 to 7 weeks while the new nails are growing out and they will be clear.
  • We recommend our Atlantic Seaweed Soap Bar when washing your hands to prevent irritation.
