Diabetic Body Soap

A Gentle Body Soap to Cleanse Your Skin without Damaging it's Natural Barrier

Diabetic Body Soap

Diabetic Body Soap is one of a range of unique Medical Skin Care products developed by NAQI aimed at improving the dry skin of diabetic patients. Body Soap is a very mild cleanser suitable for daily cleansing of sensitive skin. It contains humecants to bind water in the skin and reduce water loss, as well as a conditioner that makes the skin feel soft. Body Soap nourishes the skin without making it feel taut, and is 100% soap-free with a neutral pH (5.5).

Daily Skin Care

A healthy life style and control of blood sugar levels are the fundamental basis of diabetic care. Skin cleansing is necessary to maintain healthy skin. The goal is to remove impurities and micro-organisms without disrupting the skin's natural balance and removing the skin lipids.

Water alone is not sufficient to cleanse. Soaps can thoroughly cleanse, but have a high pH level. A change in the skin's pH level combined with cleansing can harm the skin's barrier. Cleansing with a gentle, soap-free cleanser with a neutral pH, such as NAQI Body Soap is recommended for daily use. Gentle cleansing is necessary to prevent the lipids in the skin dissolving and damage occuring to the skin's natural barrier. Contrary to popular belief the amount of foam is not a sign of intensive cleansing, and in fact the more foam, the higher the risk of skin irritation. After cleansing the skin must always be carefully rinsed with lukewarm water- never hot. The skin must always be carefully dried especially between the toes.

Afterwards the skin must be moisturised with a body lotion such as NAQI Body Lotion, to keep it soft and firm, a sign than the skin is well hydrated and the barrier is working well. To intensively hydrate the skin and to slow down premature skin ageing, a product with carnosine and antioxidants such as NAQI Body Care is recommended to prevent the
formation of AGEs.

How healthy is your skin?

The key factor to prevent diabetes-related skin problems is to keep diabetes under control, but also be aware of six warning signs of a diminished resistance to infections

  • Has your skin become visibly thicker?

  • Has your skin become visibly drier?

  • Is your skin peeling?

  • Is your skin showing cracks?

  • Has your skin become yellower?

  • Do small wounds heal slower?

If the answer to any of these questions is yes, then using specialised diabetes skin care products such as NAQI's Diabetes range and following a better daily skin care routine should be a priority to avoid further problems and complications.
