Natural Remedies That May Help Ichthyosis

Ranked by our online community.

Coconut Oil

Coconut Oil is made from pressing coconut “meat”, or the fleshy part of a mature coconut, the fruit of a Coconut Palm, or Cocos Nucifera. Primarily produced in the Philippines, the oil, rich in saturated fat, also contains medium-chain triglycerides, which are rapidly absorbed by the human body and therefore a quick energy source.



Evening Primrose Oil

Rich in Omega-6, gamma-Linolenic acid (GLA), Evening Primrose Oil is extracted from pressing Oenothera biennis seeds. Native to North and South America, the plant presents lemon-scented, yellow flowers that bloom in the evening and remain closed during the day. 



Neem Oil



Vitamin C

Vitamin C is an essential, water-soluble vitamin best-sourced in fruits (orange, grapefruit, kiwi, strawberries, cantaloupe) and vegetables (red pepper, green pepper, broccoli, brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower).  A powerful antioxidant, Vitamin C plays a key role in immune function, protein metabolism, and collagen production.
