Using soy garlic can help to control skin conditions, according to a new study.
It is one of several topical products that can be used to treat skin conditions including psoriasis, eczema, and psoropharyngitis.
The research, published in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology, is based on a study of 100 people with psorphoid skin.
It looked at people with a total of 12 skin conditions and found that participants who were treated with soy garlic oil had significantly fewer flares and were less likely to have a flare-up in all 12 conditions.
“It’s a very promising new treatment for psorrhoea, ecza, and eczematous dermatitis,” said lead author Dr. Michelle L. Miller, a professor of dermatology at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine.
“The research also demonstrates that the use of soy garlic in combination with topical creams can be helpful in controlling skin conditions.”
The study, conducted in conjunction with the University at Buffalo, was funded by the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (NIAMS).
The study was conducted in collaboration with dermatologist Dr. Christopher A. Brown, an assistant professor of medicine at the Miami University School of Dentistry and director of the Center for Skin Science and Technology.
Other co-authors are Daniela J. Giorgi, a postdoctoral research fellow in dermatology; and Dr. Daniela E. Fauci, a senior research associate in dermatological research at the School of Veterinary Medicine at UM.
The study was part of a larger research program that included clinical trials of soy extract and skin treatment with different treatments.
Dr. Miller said that it was not known exactly how long the people in the study would be treated with the soy garlic products, but the results showed that people who were using the soy-based products had significantly less flare-ups in the 12 conditions studied.
“If you take that into consideration, then you’re talking about about a 10 percent reduction in flare-sensitivity, which is very important,” she said.
The results also showed that the participants treated with products that were derived from soy were less prone to flare-ins.
“In this study, we were able to show that the soy products did have an effect on skin conditions,” Dr. L. Martins said.
“What that means is, if you use a topical treatment like the soy oil, you’re going to reduce the risk of flare-outs by 10 to 20 percent, but if you take a soy-containing product and apply it, it’s going to help reduce flare-out risk by 10 percent.”
Soy products have been found to be effective in treating psoraphoid and eczyema, which are conditions that are common in children and teens, but are common even in adults.
There are also studies that have shown that people using soy oil for eczemic psororrhea can have significantly fewer flare- ups.
Other topical products have shown to reduce skin conditions such as eczemia, psorocystic eczomyositis, and acne.
This is an exciting time for the cosmetic industry, Miller said.
This research provides a new way to address a common skin condition, one that’s not well understood.
“With the advent of these products, the skin has gotten better and it’s gotten better at controlling psorias,” Miller said, “so it’s a lot more effective for treating eczomes.”
The new research is one in a series of studies that are looking at soy products as potential treatments for skin conditions.
The new study was the first to look at soy oil in conjunction for psoriatic and ecziatic psorabies, which can be treated by topical creamers and skin treatments, as well as in the form of oral preparations and topical products.
A previous study looked at the effects of a soybean-based skin care product, which was approved by the FDA in January of 2018.
This new study is the first study to look into using soy products in conjunction in the treatment of psororia and ecza.
In addition to the researchers from the University and Miami, other co-author are: Dr. John P. Leighton, a dermatologist; Dr. Sarah M. Sacks, a microbiologist and clinical professor; and Rui Huynh, a research scientist.
