The first step in treating psoriasis is to remove or lift any scales or psoriatic plaques. Skin-Plaque Solution™ Exfoliating Gel contains salicylic acid. The US Food and Drug Administration has approved salicylic acid as an over-the-counter treatment for psoriasis. Technically, salicylic acid is classified as a keratolytic, or peeling agent, and it works by causing shedding of the outer layer of skin. Shedding the dead skin cells opens the pores and causes the symptoms of psoriasis and seborrheic dermatitis to lessen and often disappear. Removing scales is important, because it allows topical medications to reach and penetrate the skin.

If you have tried other salicylic acid gels, lotions or creams without getting the results you wanted, then Skin-Plaque Solution™ Exfoliating Gel could deliver the results you're looking for. Many manufacturers deliver 2% salicylic acid in a water base because some customers find petrolatum too oily. No wonder their products deliver poor results.

For salicylic acid to deliver maximum keratolytic effect, it needs to be in contact with the affected skin for a number of hours. We deliver the salicylic acid in a 96% petrolatum base. Petrolatum is a semisolid unctuous hydrocarbon mixture, neutral and without taste or odor, derived from petroleum by distilling off the lighter portions and purifying the residue. Petrolatum is the official name for purified mineral jelly or petroleum jelly, which does a superior job of keeping the salicylic acid in contact with the affected skin.

When used as directed, salicylic acid is considered safe and highly effective. A small amount of Skin-Plaque Solution™ Exfoliating Gel applied to the affected areas on a daily basis can bring outstanding results.

Salicylic Acid treatment regimen for Psoriasis:

  • Apply a thin coating of Exfoliating Gel to affected areas before bed. Dress in comfortable clothing—socks if required—and leave on overnight.
  • Take a warm bath or shower the following morning, being sure to gently wash affected areas with soap and water.
  • Apply moisturizing lotion while your skin is still wet (this improves its effectiveness).
  • Once the moisturizing lotion has been absorbed, apply Skin-Plaque Solution™ Spray to affected areas. You may reapply the spray during the day as needed, but do not exceed four applications per day.
  • If the spray or gel causes any irritation, discontinue use immediately.

Customer stories:*

At first, Marianne thought it was expensive, but then figured "Oh, what the heck," and tried it. "It worked... beyond my dreams, actually." She explained, "I had a terrible flare-up on my right leg. I couldn't even sleep at night.  It was itching so badly, it got to the point where I was doing what I knew I shouldn't have been doing—scratching it with a brush.... With the first application of the gel, it eased the itching and I was able to sleep at night.... Within two weeks, my psoriasis was pretty much gone.... I'm now treating some spots on my back, and those areas are starting to get better, too." Marianne is planning on writing a letter to the National Psoriasis Foundation, of which she's a member, to mention Skin-Plaque in the "What Works for Me" column of their newsletter.

"I absolutely love the Skin-Plaque Solution!.... I use it every morning before school and every night before bed. I'm not using any other products now for my psoriasis (I used to use Dovenex daily), and I seriously have seen such great results!.... During the fall and wintertime, especially, my psoriasis tends to flare up a lot. It gets red and itchy sometimes, or very white and horribly flaky.... I have not had any of those problems since I started the product.... Oh, but here's a little problem—I prefer to use the gel twice a day, and occasionally use the spray." Overall, Jim is very pleased with the gel, and states the "results are quite noticeable."
— Jim S, California
