    Re: The Sea Buckthorn Treatment Guide

    I would have liked to hear about the treatment completed.
    Did it work?
    What were the results anyway.

    Thanks.

    Re: The Sea Buckthorn Treatment Guide

    Hello everyone
    So... I have a little situation. I have been using STB products for about a month and a half. Actually, I have been using only the soap, and then these last 5 days I'm also using shampoo and lotion. I have had a breakout (u can see it in the pictures below) and I still do. These dots/pimples are still here + it occasionaly itches, but nothing is happening - KP stays unchanged.. I am confused.. Do you think I should continue using the products and have some more patience?

    please

    so here is my breakout.. or at least I think that's it

    If you have had any type of breakout, you should continue using it.

    Re: The Sea Buckthorn Treatment

    Hey, SirDuckles!:

    Thanks for the especially thorough research and written experience. The photos are astonishing, and it's impressive that you're a model. I'm gonna try your options because they're relatively easy to implement. I've had minor KP most of my life, but passed it along to my child unknowingly, either through genetics or contagion. Medical professionals in the U.S. are next to useless about KP.

    So we'll be trying the things you suggested as a first approach. In my case, I know some things that exacerbate my KP are too much coffee and/or dairy.

    Your experience is interesting because our child's dog was diagnosed with demodex and successfully cured. The vet told me that demodex genus doesn't affect humans - my "still, small voice" suggested otherwise. Although she doesn't have KP, I noticed long ago that my child's mother had some scratching behaviour I'd never seen, which was eventually passed along to me. Hhhmm.

    will be up shortly, just need to sort them out.

    Edit: The pictures are now up. Take a look at them in the corresponding section in the above guide!

    I just got sea buckthorn pills, bodywash, and lotion a week ago. I've been breaking out worse than ever and super itchy. I sure hope this all works. I must look like I have lice!

    Hey All,
    If you're interested in buying the oil here is an awesome deal 30% off wholesale price, just google 'new directions aromatics.

    Do you think the pulp or stem would be more potent?

    Re: The Sea Buckthorn Treatment Guide

    Hey guys, I'm new to this forum and I just wanted to come on and tell you about my experience with sea buckthorn lotion. I am very thankful to all of you who wrote about your opinions.

    Anyway, I bought the weleda sea buckthorn lotion about a month ago and used it everyday on my legs and ass (this is where my KP is). I dont have it anywhere else on my body and I would say it is mild, however it does get very bad in winter.

    After a week of using just the lotion my skin was so so smooth, it had never been like that in a long time. So I presume I have the demodex mites KP as my skin always feels like its crawling! Althought its 11 euro a bottle,it only lasts 3 weesk!! I am going to get the shampoo as my scalp is sometimes itchy. Also I did 2 sunbeds before I used the lotion of which I was not doing for a tan because I am Irish and very pale and i dont tan. I just wanted to see if vit D could be linked too because it always gets better when Im on holidays in Spain.

    So I do believe that sunlight and the sea buckthorn which is said to kill the mites does defn help in reducing KP significantly. However you have to keep up the treatment. I also do believe for those who have not been successful with sea buckthorn that it has to be something we are deficient in.

    If anyone could recommend a SBT shampoo that is not too expensive I would be grateful,

    Thanks,xxx

    Re: The Sea Buckthorn Treatment Guide

    So I'm wondering...if demodex mites are killed off by sunlight, wouldn't the same type of initial flare up of KP occur after tanning as they decompose in your skin? When I tan, I've never had a flare up before my KP noticeably subsides...does that mean I don't have a problem with the parasite?

    Hi all.

    Has this actually worked for anyone?

    I too have a severe case of KP. Multiple time worse than the forum starter! It's also spreading.

    Re: The Sea Buckthorn Treatment Guide

    It has been two weeks now. I haven't really seen much improvement, I have KP or just something to note too early, because I was frantically scanning the skin every time I shower. I have been a couple of random large acne spots like my arms, hips, back and smaller on my forehead on the day after the fast disappearing, because the attractions of these places do not survive for some reason, I would like to I was fortunate few.

    Re: The Sea Buckthorn Treatment Guide

    I want to thank you so much for posting this! I honestly thought I had tried everything and that nothing would work. But I figured I had nothing to lose by trying one more time. I ordered some sea buckthorm lotion and capsules from Swanson vitamins. It has made a huge difference in my skin!!! I have not worn anything sleeveless since 1999, until now. I had KP all over, and it was getting worse by the year. My left upper arm was just disgusting. I wish I had taken "before and after" photos, but I honestly didn't think it would work. Now my skin is smooth for the first time in many years. The treatment is not expensive, and it just cleared up my KP like magic. It did get a little worse at first, but then over time it just went away. I know this doesn't work for everyone, but apparently my KP was coming from a mite problem. I am so grateful for this web site and for your post. Changed my life! Thanks.

    Re: The Sea Buckthorn Treatment Guide

    Hello all! I read this forum one month ago and started this treatment. I have KP on my upper and lower arms, the back of my thighs and, most recently, on my face.

    I have been using SIBU's Cellular Support capsules for 3 weeks and have noticed a drastic reduction in my KP. Yes, I did get that itchiness, and a minor breakout, but my arms have improved considerably. I also noticed that the KP spread on my face since taking the pills, but am so pleased with my arms that I'm hoping my face will clear over time.

    Someone asked about soap. I have been purchasing 2 products through Chagrin Valley Soaps. It's chagrin valley soap dot com (without the spaces). The sea buckthorn salve and sea buckthorn soap. The bar soap (which can be used as shampoo) sells for just under $8.00. Their products are hand made and they take special care to ensure they are of highest quality. Both the sea buckthorn salve and soap are dark orange from lots of sea buckthorn oil. My skin is acne prone and oily, but I use the salve on my face with no other breakouts.

    I am so glad someone discovered sea buckthorn's benefits to KP!

About KeratosisPilaris.org

Keratosis Pilaris is a very common benign genetic skin condition. KeratosisPilaris.org is the definitive resource for KP on the internet.

KP appears as rough or bumpy skin on the back and/or outer sides of your upper arms. The severity of the symptoms varies from person to person. You can also manifest it on the face as a natural blush (known as KPRF or Keratosis Pilaris Rubra Faceii).

This community is composed primarily of KeratosisPilaris.org community members, but is also open for those interested in the topic.
