DESERT HARVEST RELEVEUM® … Not Your Average Cream!

We recently visited with a physical therapy group in Beverly Hills, CA who specialize in both pelvic pain and also treat breast cancer patients who benefit from PT for scar tissue and range of motion improvement. They use Desert Harvest Releveum® All-In-One Skin Repair Cream for their patients in the office, and also give them samples to take home with them for continued at home therapy.

Releveum® was originally developed and is a patented formula for extreme skin repair associated with radiation dermatitis. It contains 4% lidocaine, the highest levels allowed and approved by the FDA without a prescription. This concentration of lidocaine offers up to 4 hours of pain relief and can be reapplied every 3 hours. The anti-inflammatory, antiviral, antibacterial, pain-relieving and healing properties of aloe, calendula and other botanicals help prevent wound infections and stimulate collagen synthesis and skin regeneration. The aloe in Releveum® also contains vitamins C and E, plus the mineral zinc which supports healthy tissue development, wound healing and aids in preventing scarring and skin discoloration.

Repeat radiation therapy may cause exposed skin to peel off more quickly than it can grow back, causing sores or ulcers. One of the barriers to physical therapy, and most especially PT for breast cancer patients undergoing treatment, is the pain associated with raw wounds and adhesions. For radiated skin to heal, it needs time to regenerate, a process that may take two to four weeks for mild reactions, or several months or more for serious injuries. Releveum® contains all-natural ingredients plus lidocaine to tackle the pain barrier while helping condition and moisturize skin to aid with PT and ongoing healing. Since there are no parabens, chemical additives or artificial preservatives, Releveum® is safe for those with suppressed immune systems.

These same cancer patients also benefit from Desert Harvest Aloe Glide® which is a pH balanced vaginal moisturizer. Since cancer treatments often disrupt hormones causing dryness and discomfort, Glide® is ideal for daily moisture, for intimacy and also to use in a PT practice for pelvic exams and treatment. Glide® is made with 100% organic aloe vera so all of the moisture comes from the plant, not added water which can be drying. Because there are no parabens, petrochemicals, propylene glycol or artificial ingredients, Glide® is the correct osmolality and will not disrupt pH which can contribute to other issues including bacterial vaginosis.
