  • ACNE

  • Acne is characterized by swollen, red and irritated blemishes, and is most commonly found in areas where dead skin cells and oil can build up, such as the face, neck, back, and chest. There are several causes of acne such as: hormones, diet, stress and bacteria. Depending on the severity, Acne can be treated in many different ways. Common treatments include cleansers and lotions that contain harsh chemicals and bleaching agents in order to dry out the skin in an effort to correct the condition. For severe cystic acne please consult a physician before starting a treatment program.

    AGE SPOTS

    The term “age spots” is often used to describe any skin discolorations that appear with age such as brown spots and damage from the sun. Although most age spots are harmless, in some cases they can be an early sign of cancer. Age spots generally appear due to exposure to the sun’s harmful UVA and UVB rays, and those who spend a lot of time in tanning beds and using sun lamps will often develop age spots as well. The best way to prevent age spots is to protect your skin by avoiding long periods of sun exposure, and by always wearing a quality SPF. There are also lightening products available to reduce the appearance of age spots topically over time.

    Celazome’s Fade Shades Lightening Cream combines 2% Hydroquinone with 2% Kojic Acid and 6% Glycolic Acid, in order to effectively lighten pigmented areas! In as little as 2 weeks, the skin will appear lighter with a more even tone. Always wear an SPF of at least 29 when using Fade Shades Lightening Cream to prevent further sun damage, and protect the skin during treatments as sun sensitivity is heightened. To avoid developing age spots, one should wear an SPF every day. Celazome’s SPF products provide sweat-proof, rub-proof, oil-free and non-comedogenic protection unlike any other suncare products available on the market today.

    AGING SKIN

    As you age, your body slows its natural production of collagen, which causes your skin to gradually wrinkle and sag. There are foods that stimulate the production of collagen, as well as anti-aging products that help to prevent your skin from showing the signs of aging. You can decrease the visible signs of aging by protecting your skin from the sun by wearing an SPF, eating a balanced diet, exercising regularly, getting enough sleep, drinking lots of water, and taking care of your skin by using a skincare Regime that is right for your skin type. There is no way to “cure” the look of aging skin however, if you take care of your skin, you may be able to slow down the signs of aging skin.

    To prevent premature skin aging, one should wear sunscreen daily. Celazome’s SPF products provide sweat-proof, rub-proof, oil-free and non-comedogenic protection unlike any other suncare products available on the market today.  Our powerful anti-aging treatment products include Eye Treat and N45 Firming Peptide Complex and Cream. Eye Treat delivers 13 bioactives including proven, wrinkle-reducing peptides, to brighten skin and reduce inflammation. Our N45  formulas rescue aging skin without invasive treatments, by penetrating into the skin versus merely sitting on the surface, releasing a 45% concentration of potent, targeted peptides and botanicals to plump, lift and reduce fine lines and wrinkles almost immediately!

    BURNS

    Burns can be caused by fire, the sun, chemicals, electricity and basically anything heated. They damage the skin tissue, and can cause various degrees of pain, blistering, swelling, etc. Depending on how deep the damage is to the tissue, burns are classified as First, Second or Third degree. Milder burns are much easier to treat, and can be treated at home using a moisturizer to keep the skin from peeling. For more severe burns, medical treatment is necessary, and it is recommended that you consult a medical professional.

    Celazome’s Penetrating Body Lotion, and Penetrating Body Cream, were originally created to treat burn victims, using our patented nanotechnology that allows the moisture to penetrate into the skin for all-day protection and hydration. Both the Penetrating Lotion, as well as the Cream, supply continuous hydrating action to help to soothe and treat burns by locking-in moisture and creating a ‘sealing barrier’.

    CRACKED HEELS

    Cracked heels, a common skin condition that many suffer from, are quite bothersome and painful and they can often be difficult to treat as we are constantly on our feet. Cracked heels can occur due to a lack of moisture, over exposure to the elements, or a deficiency in zinc or Omega-3 fatty acids. Cracked heels are not harmful unless the fissure (crack) in the heel becomes so deep that it splits and begins to bleed, as this can lead to infection. Treatment for cracked heels is usually a heavy moisturizing cream that works to seal the cracks.  

    Celazome’s Penetrating Body Cream is a unique treatment, as it is able to penetrate into the skin and lock-in moisture. The skin-sealing bioactives ensure continuous all-day corrective action, resulting in smooth, moisturized feet, fast!

    DAMAGED CUTICLES

    Damaged cuticles can occur due to very dry hands, severe weather conditions, washing your hands too frequently, or biting your nails. They can become dry and painful, and although this condition is not severe, it can be irritating. The best treatment for damaged cuticles is to ensure that you are taking care of your hands, and keeping them moisturized.

    Celazome’s Tip Treat is a unique treatment that contains pineapple enzymes to naturally eliminate dry, dead skin cells. This 3-in-1 treatment exfoliates, moisturizes and protects, resulting in hydrated, healthy hands and nails!

    ECZEMA / DERMATITIS

    Atopic Dermatitis, or Eczema, is an inherited skin condition which often begins in early infancy. Typically, this disease has periods when the skin is almost entirely normal and periods when the condition is more active. Individuals with a family history of asthma, hay fever, or dry skin seem to be more likely to develop this non-contagious form of dermatitis. When eczema is active, the condition causes itching, erythema (redness), inflammation, fine scaliness, irritated papules and crusty erosions. The itching can even become uncontrollable, and many patients will even scratch at their skin while asleep. There is no cure for eczema, but there is relief for the symptoms of dry skin and itching through the use of topical creams and lotions. 

    Through the use of our patented nanotechnology, Celazome’s Penetrating Body Lotion and Cream work to relieve the symptoms of eczema by supplying continuous hydration throughout the day, creating a sealing-barrier and locking-in moisture, unlike any other treatment product currently available.

    DIABETIC DERMOPATHY

    Diabetic Dermopathy is a skin condition that commonly affects individuals with diabetes. This condition is often referred to as shin spots, and results due to changes in the blood vessels in the legs. It can be identified by a shiny round patch that appears over the skin on the front lower leg. This condition is not harmful, but can often become itchy and burn. The best way to treat this condition is to moisturize frequently to protect your legs from further damage.

    Through the use of our patented nanotechnology, Celazome’s Penetrating Body Lotion and Cream, work to relieve the symptoms of Diabetic Dermopathy by supplying continuous hydration to the affected area(s) throughout the day, and locking-in moisture, treating the condition and providing relief quickly.

    DRY SKIN

    Skin that is lacking moisture can become dry, flaky, chapped, tight and itchy. Dry skin can be due to hormonal changes, environmental conditions, nutritional problems or harsh products. Older clients, who produce less protective sebum on the skin, and young children, who don’t yet have that active oil gland function, are often troubled by dry skin conditions. Itching (puritus) is the most frequent skin symptom. It may be indicative of an internal problem such as Diabetes or iron-deficient anemia, which can and does create havoc with the skin all over the body. The most common treatment for dry skin is a hydrating lotion or cream.

    The treatment of dry skin must be constant, and requires an excellent emollient moisturizer, such as Celazome’s Penetrating Body Lotion and Cream. They both easily provide the long-lasting moisture that is needed to minimize the development of continued dryness, while providing a sealing barrier to prevent further moisture loss. In a double blind study, Everyday Skin Penetrating Lotion has been proven to treat the toughest of dry skin conditions, as well as the leading prescribed drug product!

    HYPERPIGMENTATION

    Hyperpigmentation is a common condition in which some patches of skin turn darker in color. It is caused when there is too much brown pigment, called “melanin”, in the skin. Age spots, sometimes called “liver spots”, are a form of hyperpigmentation; they usually occur because of damage to the skin from the sun. All hyperpigmentation, regardless of the reason, is treated by the same protocol; lasers, sunscreen and skin lightening cream.

    Celazome’s Fade Shades Lightening Cream combines 2% hydroquinone with 2% kojic acid and 6% glycolic acid, in order to effectively lighten pigmented areas! In as little as 2 weeks, the affected areas will appear lighter with a more even tone. Always wear an SPF of at least 29 when using Enlighten Me! to prevent further sun damage, and protect the skin during treatments, as sensitivity is heightened. To avoid further hyperpigmentation, one should wear an SPF every day. Celazome’s SPF products provide sweat-proof, rub-proof, and non-comedogenic protection unlike any other suncare products available on the market today.

    KERATOSIS

    Keratosis is a very common skin condition that results in rough patches of small, acne-like bumps forming on the back of the arms, legs and buttocks. These small bumps are usually white or red in color, and do not hurt or itch. Keratosis is genetic and usually develops within the first 10 years of life. The main treatment for keratosis is exfoliation and moisturization.

    Celazome’s Penetrating Body Lotion with patented nanotechnology allows the moisture to penetrate deep into the skin for all-day hydration, resulting in the reduction of keratosis, in as little as two weeks!

    MELASMA

    Melasma is a fairly common pigment disorder where brown patches appear on the skin due to hormones or excessive sun exposure. The most common places for Melasma to form are on the cheeks, nose, forehead and chin. Melasma primarily affects women, and is more commonly found in women with darker skin tones. As well, this condition is commonly found in pregnant woman due to the hormonal changes they experience during this time. Melasma can be treated using lightening creams, lasers or chemical peels depending on the severity.  

    Celazome’s Fade Shades Lightening Cream combines 2% Hydroquinone with 2% Kojic Acid and 6% Glycolic Acid, in order to effectively lighten pigmented areas! In as little as 2 weeks, the affected areas will appear lighter with a more even tone. Always wear an SPF of at least 29 when using Fade Shades Lightening Cream to prevent further sun damage, and protect the skin during treatment as sensitivity is heightened. A quality SPF should be worn every day when using a lightening product, as the skin’s sensitivity is high.  Celazome’s SPF products provide sweat-proof, rub-proof, oil-free and non-comedogenic protection unlike any other suncare products available on the market today.

    OILY / SHINY SKIN

    Oily skin traditionally is shiny and thick with large pores, and heredity, diet, hormones, pregnancy, cosmetics and weather, are all causes. When caring for oily skin, avoid harsh products that strip your skin of oil and encourage flakiness, as they can cause a reaction known as reactive seborrhoea, where the oil glands work overtime to compensate for the loss of natural oils. Opt for moisturizers that contain Retinol to maintain a shine-free complexion, and keep your skin very clean. Try to limit washing your face to two or three times a day, as too much washing will stimulate your skin to produce more oil.

    Celazome’s Purifying Botanical Regime is formulated for oily and problematic skin. The cleanser gently eliminates excess sebum and balances skin, while the toner helps to tighten and refine pores. Serum Vitae reduces the look of blotchy skin and contains Retinol to control excess oil. Due to our patented nanotechnology, which allows the key bio-actives to penetrate the skin, this trio works unlike any other products available on the market today.  Experience a smooth, shine-free complexion in just two weeks!

    BLEMISHES / PIMPLES

    Blemishes (pimples) form when there is a buildup of dead skin cells, and blockage in the pores. This condition results in red, pustule sores forming on areas of the body, such as the face, neck, back and chest. Blemishes can occur due to diet, hormones, bacteria or heredity. The best way to treat blemishes is to invest in a spot treatment. If blemishes are occurring on the majority of one’s face, this is defined as Acne and should be treated with an Acne Regime or with oral medication. For severe cystic acne please consult a physician.

    Celazome’s O-PLEX Target Facial Treatment is an amazing spot treatment that contains Complex Origanum to eliminate bacteria without drying out the surrounding skin; blemishes are treated within 3 days! Celazome’s O-PLEX Acne Regime guarantees quick results, as it contains Complex Origanium, a natural antibacterial that has the power to kill bacteria at its source! Oregano is a great alternative to the traditional acne treatments- those that use chemicals to dry out and bleach the skin, leaving it damaged and life-less.

    PRURITUS / ITCHY SKIN

    Pruritus (itchy skin) can be caused by a variety of things including disorders, diseases, contact with particular substances, fabrics and drugs. Dryness, flaking and scaliness are all common characteristics of itchy skin, which is extremely irritating. To treat dry, itchy skin, one would normally use a moisturizing lotion or cream.

    Celazome’s Penetrating Body Lotion and Cream provide the long-lasting moisture that is needed to minimize the development of continued dryness and itching, while providing a sealing barrier to prevent further moisture loss. In a double blind study, Penetrating Lotion Body has been proven to treat the toughest of dry skin conditions, as well as a leading prescribed drug.

    PSORIASIS

    Psoriasis is an autoimmune disease where the skin cells (epidermis) shed about 7 times faster than the usual 28 day cycle. These skin cells are immature, sticky, and resist shedding, unlike those of unaffected people. Producing more skin means the blood vessels to the area are in greater quantity and jammed full of blood. The skin, forming at a furious rate, cannot be shed off quickly enough, and the white silvery scales are seen on the surface of the blood-engorged patch. Psoriasis not only affects the skin but also the scalp and nails. At the present time, there is no cure for psoriasis, but the condition can be soothed by applying a moisturizer or steroid cream several times a day.

    Celazome can offer considerable help in the relief of psoriasis symptoms. Celazome’s Penetrating Body Lotion has over 14 years of evidence-based data supporting the AMAZING relief given to psoriasis sufferers. This product is able to produce such drastic results due to its ability to penetrate into the layers of the skin through our patented nanotechnology.  The ingredients are able to travel into the skin to where they are needed most provide lasting relief, so not only does the psoriasis sufferer’s skin improve dramatically, so does the quality of their lives.

    PUFFY EYES

    Puffy eyes can be caused by dehydration, too much sodium consumption, lack of sleep, high blood pressure and allergic reactions. Puffy eyes are hard to manage as they are not easy to cover up, and are quite noticeable. The most common way to treat puffy eyes is to put a soothing lotion under your eyes and on your eye lids and massage it in, as well applying a cold compress.

    Celazome’s Eyelyph Serum is loaded with nourishing antioxidants and botanicals that deliver radiant results throughout the day and overnight! Dramatic improvement of dark circles, sagging and puffiness can be seen in as little as 2 weeks of use, guaranteed!

    RASHES AND BUMPS

    There are many things that can cause rashes and bumps, including medications, bug bites, and reactions to food among many others. They can occur anywhere on the body, and can happen at any time to anyone. Most rashes and bumps are not severe, although it is important to keep an eye on them and take care of them, to ensure that they do not get worse. Treatment options for rashes and bumps include allergy medication and moisturizing or medicated lotions and creams.

    Celazome’s Penetrating Body Lotion and Cream provide the long-lasting moisture that is needed to reduce the symptoms of rashes and bumps, while providing a sealing barrier to prevent further moisture loss.

    RAZOR BURN

    Razor burn is a condition that is caused from shaving too closely to the skin, or shaving in sensitive areas, which causes bacteria to flare up in the area. It is most common on the face and neck, in the arm pits, and along the bikini line. Both men and women can suffer from this condition. Razor burn is characterized by a red rash, or small red pumps that can be itchy, irritating, and somewhat painful. Although this condition is not typically serious, and does not usually present a health hazard, it is very bothersome. This condition commonly does not have an ideal treatment method.  

    Celazome’s O-PLEX Mist contains Complex Origanum (Oregano) which kills bacteria at its source, and should be used to clean your razor before and after use to kill bacteria, as well as to apply to the affected area(s) after shaving to kill any remaining bacteria. To soothe, and further treat razor burn, apply our Penetrating Body Lotion or Cream to shaved areas.

    ROSACEA

    Rosacea almost always occurs between the ages of 30 and 60, and it is identified at first by occasional flushing on the face (nose, cheeks, forehead and sometimes chin) and can sometimes be found on the neck as well. With time, the flushing becomes less episodic and more chronic, accompanied by papules and pustules. Since Rosacea may be affected by vascular changes, vascular triggers such as hot drinks, exercise, alcohol and spicy foods may cause the redness to flare up. Therapies for Rosacea include oral antibiotics, cortosteroids and lasers.

    Fortunately, Celazome can also offer relief to Rosacea sufferers with our Serum Vitae Purifying Moisturizer. The Purifying Treatment releases antioxidants and moisturizers that penetrate into the skin to treat Rosacea at its source. This formula relieves redness-prone symptoms, leaving the skin nourished and healthy!

    SCARS

    Scars are a result of injuries to the skin that occur throughout one’s lifetime. The severity of a scar depends on how bad the injury was (the depth and the size), age, heredity, etc. Although there are many ways to help treat a scar, they never completely go away. Hydrating lotions, lightening creams as well as lasers are typically used to reduce the appearance of scars.

    Celazome’s Fade Shades Lightening Cream combines 2% Hydroquinone with 2% Kojic Acid and 6% Glycolic Acid in order to effectively lighten scars! In as little as 2 weeks, the scar will appear lighter and less noticeable. Always wear an SPF of at least 29 when using Fade Shades Lightening Cream in order to prevent sun damage to the affected area, and apply our Penetrating Body Lotion and/ or Cream to provide the long-lasting moisture that is needed to reduce the appearance of scars over time.

    STRETCH MARKS

    Stretch marks occur when the dermis tears and forms scarring on the skin with an off-color hue. They generally develop due to rapid growth (puberty) or weight gain. Although the skin can handle being stretched to a certain extent, when it is stretched too fast, collagen production is disrupted. Stretch marks often appear as red or purple lines in the skin at first, although they will often fade away with time. It is very difficult to get rid of stretch marks completely, although hydrating lotions help to minimize their appearance.

    Celazome’s Penetrating Body Lotion and Cream have the ability to penetrate into the skin and lock-in moisture in order provide all-day, long-lasting moisture at the source.  Hydration is the key to minimizing the appearance of stretch marks and the Penetrating Body Lotion and Cream provide a sealing barrier to prevent moisture loss and produce visible results, guaranteed!

    SUN DAMAGE

    The degree of sun damage depends on how much sun exposure an individual has had, how their skin responds to the sun, and if they have protected their skin from the sun. If you have only suffered moderate sun damage, your skin will be able to repair itself. However, if you have suffered severe sun damage, it can lead to wrinkling at an earlier stage in life, sun spots, uneven skin tone, skin lesions, visible blood vessels, etc. There are ways to prevent sun damage from getting worse. Wearing an SPF daily is essential to preventing further sun damage. Lightening creams and lasers are often used to lighten current sun spots.

    Celazome’s Fade Shades Lightening Cream combines 2% Hydroquinone with 2% Kojic Acid and 6% Glycolic Acid in order to effectively lighten pigmented areas! In as little as 2 weeks, the skin will be lighter with an even tone. Always wear an SPF of at least 29 when using Fade Shades Lightening Cream in order to prevent further sun damage. To avoid developing age spots, one should wear an SPF every day. Celazome’s SPFs provide all-day, sweat-proof, rub-proof protection unlike any other suncare products!

    SUNBURN

    A sunburn results from too much exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet rays. Sunburns cause damage to the skin, and generally result in redness and mild pain. There can be different degrees of sunburns, as some are mild and can be easily treated. Mild sunburns usually only affect the top layer of the skin. Other sunburns can be very harsh and painful, and result in blisters on the skin, which cause damage to the deeper layers of the skin. Mild sunburns can be easily treatable by first cooling off the skin, and then ensuring that you take care of the skin by moisturizing and protecting it. Harsher sunburns may be taken care of the same way; however, if they are severe, we recommend seeking medical assistance.

    Celazome carries three exceptional sunscreens: SPF 15, 29 and 30, and offers sweat-proof, rub-proof, water-proof, oil-free and non-comedogenic formulas to protect skin from damaging UV rays unlike any other sunscreens!  To soothe a sunburn, apply our Penetrating Body Lotion which, through our patented nanotechnology, is able to penetrate into the skin minimizing pain and flaking, as well as providing all-day hydration!

    VITILIGO

    Vitiligo is a rare disorder that causes depigmentation of patches of skin, mostly on the extremities. It occurs when melanocytes die or are unable to function. The cause is unknown but it may arise from autoimmune, genetic, or viral causes. There is no cure for vitiligo, but sun protection is needed to prevent sunburn. Lightening treatments are also used to even out the discoloration.

    Celazome’s Fade Shades Lighting Cream can be applied on the hyper pigmented areas only, and SPF 29 on all areas. Fade Shades Lightening Cream has the ability to effectively lighten the skin over time in order to create a more even tone! Unfortunately, it is not possible to pigment the hypo pigmented areas, so we can only lighten the darker skin around them. Our SPF 29 is sweat-proof and rub-proof in order to offer full-spectrum protection against UVA I, UVA II and UVB rays.
