Having worked over a decade in the medical and aesthetic field, Dr. Yazdani noticed a need in the marketplace for a product that would accelerate the healing process after skin trauma, but in a natural, effective, yet safe way for all skin types. We are calling it #nontoxic healing.
Now, let's think about the "go-to" products many people use whenever they experience a cut, bruise, or burn. The problem with many of these "go-to" products lie in the ingredient list. These commonly used products often contain harsh chemicals, preservatives, and alcohols that are very harmful to the skin.

This preservative agent is known to cause allergic reactions when applied to the skin. There are also concerns that it is acutely toxic if inhaled. Who would want to put that on their kid's skin?
Let's say you're undergoing some swelling and bruising from a treatment of Botox or fillers. You might want to pick up something like Arnicare.
The problem with Arnicare is that it is packed with alcohol and artificial preservatives, which cause dryness and irritation to skin.
