Why Kamedis Dermatology Is Clinically Proven to Reduce Eczema by 50%
Kamedis Dermatology is a revolutionary skincare line that specializes in products to treat multiple skin conditions formulated with natural botanicals including: Acne, Eczema, and Dandruff. According to their website Kamedis offers: “restorative treatment via unique, quality products formulated to work with your skin and respect its inborn integrity.”
Bestselling Skin Care
Kamedis’ bestselling Eczema Therapy line was launched in the United States only recently, but it has already racked up some rave reviews from customers. Check out this 5-star review from a former sufferer of chronic eczema who also happens to be a medical doctor:
“I was just thinking this morning as I was applying Eczema Therapy Cream to my arms and legs that it has been about 5 months since I've been using it religiously at least once a day, sometimes twice. And the red, scaly skin condition that I've had for over 2 years is virtually GONE. Previously I relied on steroid ointment and moisturizer that only temporarily and partially worked. This personal experience with this product have been great for me to be able to prescribe this products to my patients with confidence.” - Dr. F.
Conventional Steroid Risks
Conventional treatments for eczema include: steroid ointment, zinc cream, antibiotics, and moisturizers. These products manage symptoms, but they don’t address the root causes. Did you know that people can become addicted to steroids? Topical Steroid Addiction (TSA) and Topical Steroid Withdrawal (TSW) occur when an individual overuses steroid creams and experiences devastating side effects as a result when the steroid is withdrawn. The labels come with a strict warning to only use the steroid cream for 7-10 days, but some chronic eczema sufferers are on steroids for decades. This was the case for Tracy Scarpulla.
Eczema is actually an autoimmune disease. Research confirmed what many already suspected to be true in November of 2014. The study was published in “The Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology”, and their findings showed what happened in a case of eczema beneath the surface. Two key proteins involved in the body’s ability to fight off bacteria and viruses were actually attacking the skin due to an autoimmune reaction. The eczema was reversed as soon as the two proteins were blocked.
According to Dr. Stephanie Davis, a functional medicine practitioner, there are 3 key factors that initiate autoimmunity:
1. A genetic predisposition/family history
2. Intestinal permeability
3. Environmental triggers such as stress, infection, gut or skin dysbiosis, food sensitivities or allergies, trauma, hormone imbalances, toxins, and nutrient imbalances.
Kamedis' Eczema Therapy Cream helps to address number three on this list. I had the privilege of conducting an interview with Dr. Yonit Bomstein Ph.D, and Dr. Deganit Barak-Shinar from Kamedis who were kind enough to provide me with some very insightful answers regarding their groundbreaking skin care line.

Kaitlin: Can you please explain where and how the natural botanicals for all of your products are sourced?
Dr. Yonit Bomstein, PhD and Dr. Deganit Barak-Shinar, PhD: The botanical extracts are produced by Green Mountain, a Kamedis subsidiary, located in Chengdu, China, close to the natural habitat of the botanicals utilized by Kamedis. The raw material, plant, is carefully tested for botanical, physical, and chemical quality. When qualified, the botanicals are extracted using modern techniques developed by Kamedis, to get the concentrated ingredient with high biological activity. The manufacturing process of the extracts is under strict control revealing all high quality botanical ingredients incorporated into Kamedis products.
Kaitlin: Your Eczema Therapy Cream has been clinically proven to reduce eczema flare-ups by 50%. I am fascinated by how each botanical ingredient functions in harmony to achieve such an impressive result! Could you please give us some details regarding how these ingredients work together as a whole to relieve eczema?
Dr. Yonit Bomstein, PhD and Dr. Deganit Barak-Shinar, PhD: All the botanicals are known to exhibit anti-inflammatory properties, and many of them are antioxidants declining the level of inflammation. Some of them (Cnidium monnieri and Licorice) reduce itch and allergic reactions. Support of natural skin immunity by Tree of Heaven and Great Burnet might assist the damaged skin to combat against infections. In addition, secondary infections on the injured and irritated skin might be avoided due to anti-bacterial pathogen properties of Rhubarb and Baikal Skullcap. Simultaneously, some of the botanicals encourage growth of the “good” bacteria on the skin, inducing a balance needed for the proper functioning of the skin. Rhubarb is known to stimulate healing of the wounds characteristic of the eczema skin.
Kaitlin: I know Kamedis has invested in multiple clinical studies. Will there be more conducted in the future?
Dr. Yonit Bomstein, PhD and Dr. Deganit Barak-Shinar, PhD: Kamedis has conducted multiple clinical studies over the years in order to validate the safety and efficacy of its products. In the near future, Kamedis will conclude two main clinical studies targeting the Eczema therapy cream that was recently launched in the US, and the prebiotic characteristic of Kamedis botanicals, demonstrated by Kamedis Acne product. The Eczema therapy cream multi-central clinical study will focus on the botanical efficiency. The study is exploring the effect of the botanicals comparing to a vehicle or placebo which does not contain the botanicals. The study includes more than 100 patients and is conducted at 6 centers in the US. The prebiotic study will demonstrate the effect of the botanicals on bacterial topical growth demonstrated by one of the Acne products. The study will concentrate on decreasing the unwanted bacteria population as well as enhancing the growth of the desired bacterial population on the treated skin.
