The Science behind Caimon Oil
If you suffer from a skin disorder, Caimon Oil was created for you. Ancient civilizations discovered the power of alligator oil to restore skin health, and now through science, we have enhanced the oil with natural herbs to better rehydrate dry skin. Caimon Oil will immediately penetrate the driest and roughest skin to help restore your damaged areas. Lab studies have shown alligator oil has the ability to kill strains of virulent bacteria, including the methicillin-resistant staph or MRSA, an antibiotic-resistant superbug that is known to cause serious and sometimes deadly skin infections. Additionally, Caimon Oil can help with eczema, acne, C. difficile, e. coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Staphylococcus aureus, Candida albicans, and Aspergillus niger. Caimon Oil has harnessed the natural healing power of pure alligator oil with lavender and vitamin E to provide you with a unique oil that provides instant relief and healing components.
Caimon Oil is highly transdermal which means that it penetrates the skin very well. This is beneficial for skin health as Caimon Oil is rich in Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) Omega 3, 6 and 9. Most skin irritations are caused by inflammation. If your skin is tight or scaly, and you’re looking for something to improve its condition, you need a good topical oil which is high in essential fatty acids.Both Omega-6s and Omega-3s are polyunsaturated fatty acids that are critical to good health. But even though your body needs these special fats, it can’t manufacture them. Instead, they must be obtained through either diet or transdermally (Through the Skin). Once in the body, EFAs break down to form eicosanoids—hormone-like substances that regulate important bodily functions, including the nervous system and immune response.EFAs are important structural components of cell membranes throughout the body. They help cells stay fluid and flexible, allowing nutrients to enter the cells and wastes to exit. EFA metabolites also “waterproof” the skin, creating an antimicrobial barrier against the elements. Without enough EFAs, your skin can suffer from dryness and premature aging.
The Effects of EFAs
EFAs can enhance your complexion by improving the skin’s texture and softness. They also help to keep skin cells moist and strong by reducing the amount of water lost through the epidermis (the top layer of skin).
Common Uses of Caimon Oil
It starts when greasy secretions from the skin’s sebaceous glands (oil glands) plug the tiny openings for hair follicles (plugged pores). If the openings are large, the clogs take the form of blackheads: small, flat spots with dark centers. If the openings stay small, the clogs take the form of whiteheads: small, flesh-colored bumps. Both types of plugged pores can develop into swollen, tender inflammations or pimples or deeper lumps or nodules. Nodules associated with severe cases of acne (cystic acne) are firm swellings below the skin’s surface that become inflamed, tender, and sometimes infected. Furthermore, excess sebum clogs the openings to hair follicles — especially those on the face, neck, chest, and back. Bacteria grow in these clogged follicles. This makes blackheads or whiteheads, also known as “comedones,” form on the skin’s surface. Sometimes, this clogging causes the follicle wall to break under the pressure of this buildup. When this happens, sebum leaks into nearby tissues and forms a pustule or a papule — this is called inflammatory acne. Larger, tender pustules are called nodules.
Symptoms of Acne
Although Acne signs and symptoms vary depending on the severity of your condition, in general they manifest as either of these:
- Whiteheads (closed plugged pores)
- Blackheads (open plugged pores)
- Small red, tender bumps (papules)
- Pimples (pustules), which are papules with pus at their tips
- Large, solid, painful lumps beneath the surface of the skin (nodules)
- Painful, pus-filled lumps beneath the surface of the skin (cystic lesions)
Age spots — also called liver spots and solar lentigines — are small dark areas on your skin. They vary in size and usually appear on the face, hands, shoulders and arms — areas most exposed to the sun. Age spots are very common in adults older than 50. But younger people can get them too, especially if they spend a lot of time in the sun.
Age spots can look like cancerous growths. But true age spots are harmless and don’t need treatment. For cosmetic reasons, age spots can be lightened
Symptoms of Age Spots
Age spots may affect people of all skin types, but they’re more common in people with light skin and generally they have these common characteristics:
- Are flat, oval areas of increased pigmentation
- Are usually tan, brown or black
- Occur on skin that has had the most sun exposure over the years, such as the backs of hands, tops of feet, face, shoulders and upper back
Burns and scars can be both painful and embarrassing. Accidentally touching something hot, like grabbing a pan right out of the oven, or getting scalded with boiling water can burn your skin. Chemicals, the sun, radiation, and electricity can also cause skin burns.
Burns cause skin cells to die. Damaged skin produces a protein called collagen to repair itself. As the skin heals, thickened, discolored areas called scars form. Some scars are temporary and fade over time. Others are permanent.
Scars can be small or large. Burn scars that cover a wide surface of your face or body can affect your appearance.
Symptoms of burns and scars
- Damaged epidermis (outer layer of skin)
- Damaged dermis (layer underneath epidermis)
- Redness of skin
- Blisters on skin
- Infections – Like any wounds, burns create an opening that can allow bacteria and other germs to sneak in. Some infections are minor and treatable.
- Dehydration – Burns makes your body lose fluids. This causes the burn to dry out and crack, additional pain.
Dandruff is a common chronic scalp condition marked by flaking of the skin on your scalp. Dandruff isn’t contagious or serious. But it can be embarrassing and sometimes difficult to treat.
Symptoms of Dandruff
Dandruff can show on adults and babies and generally is observed as:
- White, flaky pieces of dead skin
- Dry, itchy scalp
- Conditions typically worse in fall and winter seasons
- For babies: Cradle cap: Scaly, crusty scalp
It is estimated that nearly 35 million American’s suffer from eczema with 1% – 3% of adults and 10% – 20% of children living with eczema.
Atopic Dermatitis (eczema) is a condition that makes your skin red and itchy. It’s common in children but can occur at any age. Atopic Dermatitis is long lasting (chronic) and tends to flare periodically. It may be accompanied by asthma or hay fever.
No cure has been found for Atopic Dermatitis. But treatments and self-care measures can relieve itching and prevent new outbreaks. For example, it helps to avoid harsh soaps, moisturize your skin regularly, and apply medicated creams or ointments.
Eczema can have an impact on your daily life. The intense itching can keep you up at night or affect you at work or your children at school. The flare ups can make you self-conscious and prevent you from wearing certain clothes.
Symptoms of Eczema
Eczema is generally is observed with these characteristics:
- Dry skin
- Dry, itchy scalp
- Red to brownish-gray patches, especially on the hands, feet, ankles, wrists, neck, upper chest, eyelids, inside the bend of the elbows and knees, and in infants, the face and scalp
- Small, raised bumps, which may leak fluid and crust over when scratched
- Thickened, cracked, scaly skin
- Raw, sensitive, swollen skin from scratching
Inflammation: The Root Cause of All Disease?
In a medical version of the “unified field” theory in physics, many scientists now believe that most—or perhaps all—chronic diseases may have the same trigger: inflammation. This fiery process has been linked to everything from heart attacks and strokes to type-2 diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, and even cancer.
Chronic, low-grade systemic inflammation—fueled by such disorders as excessive belly fat, poor diet, lack of exercise, smoking, and gum disease—may explain why lifestyle-linked diseases have reached epidemic levels in Western countries, while remaining rare in the developing world.
“There are clear indications that inflammation explains why plaque builds up in the arteries in patients with atherosclerosis,” says Philip Schauer, MD, director of the Bariatric and Metabolic Institute at the Cleveland Clinic. “Chronic inflammation also plays a direct role in diabetes, high blood pressure, sleep apnea, asthma and many other conditions.”
Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infection is caused by a type of staph bacteria that’s become resistant to many of the antibiotics used to treat ordinary staph infections.
MRSA infection occurs among healthy people. Community-Associated MRSA (CA-MRSA), often begins as a painful skin boil. It’s spread by skin-to-skin contact. At-risk populations include groups such as high school wrestlers, childcare workers and people who live in crowded conditions.
Different varieties of Staphylococcus aureus bacteria, commonly called “staph,” exist. Staph bacteria are normally found on the skin or in the nose of about one-third of the population. The bacteria are generally harmless unless they enter the body through a cut or other wound, and even then, they usually cause only minor skin problems in healthy people.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, around 2 percent of the population chronically carries the type of staph bacteria known as MRSA.
Symptoms Staph Infection
Staph skin infections, including MRSA, generally start as swollen, painful red bumps that might resemble pimples or spider bites. The affected area might be:
- Warm to the touch
- Full of pus or other drainage
- Accompanied by a fever
Nail fungus is a common condition that begins as a white or yellow spot under the tip of your fingernail or toenail. As the fungal infection goes deeper, nail fungus may cause your nail to discolor, thicken and crumble at the edge. It can affect several nails.
Nail fungus is a fungal infection in one or more of your nails. An infection with nail fungus may begin as a white or yellow spot under the tip of your fingernail or toenail. As the nail fungus spreads deeper into your nail, it may cause your nail to discolor, thicken and develop crumbling edges — an unsightly and potentially painful problem.Essential Fatty Acids, Omega 3, 6, 9 have been shown to have anti-fungal properties and help with the symptoms associated with Toe Fungal. Caimón Oil is rich in Omega 3, 6, and 9 fatty acids and is very healthy for your nails.
Symptoms of Nail Fungus
You may have nail fungus if one or more of your nails are:
- Brittle, crumbly or ragged
- Distorted in shape
- A dark color, caused by debris building up under your nail
- Smelling slightly foul
