Understanding dermatitis: types, treatments, and why LABRAINS is your best choice

What is dermatitis?

Dermatitis is a general term for skin inflammation that results in red, itchy, and swollen skin. It can affect anyone, regardless of age, and varies in severity from mild to severe. Various factors such as allergies, genetics, environmental conditions, and stress can trigger dermatitis.

Types of dermatitis

Atopic dermatitis

Also known as eczema, this type often begins in childhood and can persist into adulthood. It is characterized by dry, itchy skin and rashes, commonly on the face, inside the elbows, and behind the knees.

Contact dermatitis

This occurs when the skin comes into direct contact with an irritant or allergen. It is divided into two types:

  • Irritant contact dermatitis: Caused by contact with substances like chemicals or detergents.
  • Allergic contact dermatitis: Triggered by allergens such as fragrances, cosmetics, or plants like poison ivy.

Seborrheic dermatitis

Seborrheic dermatitis, also known as skin inflammation, is a common chronic skin condition that cannot be completely cured. It often affects the oilier parts of the body, such as the scalp, face, and chest. It causes scaly patches, red skin, and persistent dandruff. While it is not a life-threatening or contagious skin disease, and complications are rare, it significantly impacts the patient's quality of life and emotional well-being.

Perioral dermatitis

Perioral dermatitis, in direct translation, means inflammation around the mouth and is more commonly observed in women, much less often in men. It causes rashes around the mouth and sometimes around the eyes. It is not entirely clear what exactly causes the inflammation and rashes, but it has been observed that it can be triggered by skincare products, makeup, fluoride-containing toothpaste, or even sunscreen. It is also frequently associated with the use of topical steroids.

Healing dermatitis with LABRAINS

Managing dermatitis involves reducing inflammation, keeping the skin moisturized, and avoiding irritants. LABRAINS Clean Beauty Premium Skincare offers a range of products specifically formulated to address the needs of dermatitis-prone skin.

Why choose LABRAINS for dermatitis?

LABRAINS is a premium clean beauty skincare brand from Northern Europe, Latvia, designed for all skin types with a special focus on sensitive facial skin. LABRAINS products are formulated without traditional preservatives, microplastics, alcohol, solvents, or fragrance allergens. Unique formulas protect the skin’s microbiome, maintain balanced pH levels, and restore the skin's protective barrier.

Natural formulations

LABRAINS products are free from traditional preservatives, alcohol, solvents, and fragrance allergens, making them gentle and non-irritating for sensitive skin. This minimizes the risk of adverse reactions, which is crucial for dermatitis-prone skin.

Microbiome protection

Our unique formulas support the skin's microbiome, which is crucial for maintaining healthy skin and reducing inflammation. A balanced microbiome helps prevent flare-ups and keeps the skin calm and resilient.

Balanced pH levels

LABRAINS skincare products maintain balanced pH levels, helping to prevent flare-ups and keep the skin calm and hydrated. This balance is essential for preventing the growth of harmful bacteria and maintaining the skin’s natural defense mechanisms.

Skin barrier restoration

Ingredients in LABRAINS products work to restore and strengthen the skin's protective barrier, reducing the likelihood of irritants penetrating the skin. This helps to keep the skin hydrated and protected from environmental aggressors.
