The importance of maintenance of psoriasis

Xavier suffers from hand psoriasis. You can read here his interview on his experience with psoriasis and the Hydrating Gel Plus HS, which he has been using for almost a year and a half with no interruption… or so we thought…

Xavier dropped by our office today. When he arrived, he told us : ” I had a beginning of a flare up 3 weeks ago. It was the first time in many, many months.”

Then he went on and said: “In fact, I had not had a flare up in such a long time and I had started to use so much less Hydrating Gel Plus HS than at the beginning, that I think I had become a bit overconfident and complacent… Memory is short…

I was using almost no Hydrating Gel Plus HS anymore and could tell my skin was becoming dry on the hands… and then I felt this flare up coming… So I started to use the gel intensely again, about 4-5 times a day, like I was doing when I started using it. It took about 4-5 days till I started to feel the usual moisture again, and then the flare up went out… it’s almost gone now, see here on my hands. So now I am starting to use less gel again, but this was really a strong message for me: never let down the guard. Maintenance is critical.”

This is again a great, insightful testimony from Xavier. For chronic conditions such as psoriasis, which at the present time cannot be cured but just managed, it is critically important to maintain the quality of the skin. And this means using high-quality products which provide the appropriate level of moisturizing, and also, ideally, ingredients with recognized positive effect on the psoriatic skin.

As far as we are concerned at Skintifique, this is a key reason why we developed the Hydrating Gel Plus HS: this skincare product is based on a unique formulation technology, which allows, with a very pure composition that contains only 8 safe ingredients, to provide  intense skin moisturizing and soothing, while also helping maintain the cells in the epidermis in good health. The latter is due in particular to the high level of high-quality glycerin the Hydrating Gel Plus HS delivers to the skin, even hours after it has been applied.

Glycerin indeed, although it is usually associated only with moisturizing in most people’s mind, also has natural properties essential to help skin cells in psoriasis for many people ; and Activifique, the exclusive formulation approach used in the Hydrating Gel Plus HS allows to deliver it progressively to the skin, unlike standard skincare products and unlike what one gets by simply applying pure glycerin to the skin.

Did you know?


Of the world’s population has some form of psoriasis*. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, in the US only, about 7.5 million pope are affected. That is why laboratories are massively investing in Psoriasis research leading to new product developments:  within the last few years, 17 new molecules have been FDA approved. However, it is important to highlight that in most cases, Psoriasis cannot be cured. Products available on the market can only relieve symptoms. Whatever the medication, It is important for people suffering from psoriasis to use skin care which moisturizes, soothes and helps repair skin.

Skintifique has developed revolutionary skin care products to help relieve psoriasis skin!

Skintifique has developed extremely efficient, safe and pure skin care products which moisturize, protect and soothe skin suffering from psoriasis. They are based on the exclusive patented Activifique technology (beneficial ingredients are delivered to the skin over time) and on the use of ingredients that have a well-known positive effect on cell renewal and inflammation (glycerin, bisabolol…).

An innovative approach

You have tried everything and you are still looking for new solutions to relieve your psoriasis? Skintifique’s scientists and collaborators have developed a new approach to create safe and very efficient products based on natural ingredients that moisturize, soothe and help repair skin suffering from psoriasis. These products act on 3 levels: 

  • Moisturize intensively: Skintifique’s products incorporate 40% of moisturizing agents. 
  • Stimulate skin renewal: with more than 20% glycerin (2 to 6 times more than other creams on in the market), the moisturizing effect and the impact on cell renewal are significantly increased.
  • Soothe inflammation: thanks to Bisabolol (derived from Chamomile which is well known for its soothing effects) and its exclusive patented technology Activifique, the effect on the skin is reinforced and beneficial ingredients are delivered over time to the skin and in some circumstances, are even activated when the skin needs them most.

Scientifically proven results

Several studies show the effects of the Hydrating Gel Plus HS which is included in the Psoriasis Pack. These studies have been carried out on people suffering from psoriasis. We’ve been able to evaluate the benefits to users after 2-3 weeks (which corresponds to the skin’s natural renewal cycle).

My skin became softer and more supple after I started using the Hydrating Gel Plus HS. Cracking of the skin appears less frequently, especially on my fingers, because the overall quality of my skin has improved. The crevices on my hands are healing more quickly because they are not as deep. Before, it took at least two to three weeks before they stopped hurting, whereas now the pain disappears in 4 to 5 days. I think this is because the skin is generally in better health when the outbreak comes
