Creating Waves of Awareness

Homeopathic Beauty Tipped For Global Success After Legal Breakthrough

Homeopathic beauty tipped for global success after legal breakthrough
By Guy Montague-Jones, 13-Nov-2008

Homeopathic remedies are often dismissed with sneers by the scientific community but current beauty trends and recent regulatory developments could put them firmly on the global cosmetics map.
Kyle Dailey O'Hara, founder of the anti-aging company Maintain Youth, said homeopathy is making an entrance onto the beauty market and is well placed for growth.
Growth and potential of homeopathic beauty
O'Hara, who is also the founder of export service firm HealthLink International, said a number of cosmetic companies have begun using homeopathic remedies in the last two years.
Cosmetic companies are always looking for something new and in tune with consumer sentiment. O'Hara said homeopathy fits these criteria because it comes fresh onto the market with features that match up to some of the latest trends.
Homeopathic remedies use highly diluted plant extracts and therefore fit the natural trend.
The claim that “the higher the dilution, the stronger the remedy” may be counter intuitive to some commentators. However, O’Hara said the high level of dilution appeals to health aware consumers concerned about toxicity.
Homeopathic cosmetics also support the idea of holistic beauty with the emphasis being on health and well-being from the inside and out.
The potential of homeopathy in beauty is nonetheless restricted by its confused regulatory status. In the US, homeopathic remedies are regulated as medicines so companies including them in oral supplements need a drug license.
For topical applications, products fall into a grey area where they are not seen as drugs but must nevertheless be labeled carefully when marketed as cosmetics.
Regulatory breakthrough in Asia
In Asian countries, where homeopathy has little or no precedent, O'Hara said after seven years of work in South Korea, the regulatory groundwork has been laid for homeopathic beauty.
O'Hara in her work for HealthLink International set the regulatory ball rolling that finally led to the creation of new legislation for the admittance of homeopathy as a general category of medicines.
The breakthrough came in the context of O’Hara’s work representing Arnica Montana in its efforts to market SinEcch, a treatment for bruising and swelling caused by cosmetics surgery.
South Korea has a flourishing market for cosmetic surgery providing the potential for SinEcch but achieving regulatory approval demanded a long process involving plenty of discussion and three clinical studies.
O’Hara said: “This regulatory break-through will definitely "crack the door open" for import approval of other homeopathic beauty and anti-aging preparations in the Asia market.” She said the next ports of call would be China and Taiwan.

Dr Yadav,thank you for this news about "Homeopathic Beauty" remedies.Though we know that our homeopathic medicine work well in the sphere of cosmetology,but we have to prescribe on totality of symptoms.Because of this reason is it possible to prepare "of the shelf" medication with attractive packaging? As i think this would go against the spirit of Homeopathy.

How ever see how many medicines we have for acne,and in case of acne at the age of puberty with itching if i recollect Clarke says "if Asteria Rub" fails pustular eruptions KALI BROM 30,IS almost a specific.

To clean complexion Berberis Aquifolium MT has also been seen to give results.

It is also stated that Thiosinaminum 3x dissolves scar tissues.

Can the above medicines be marketed as standard cosmetic medicine of Homeopathy? This is a very delicate and thorny subject i consider.Your experience and comments will be very much welcome,as cosmetology can open a vast market for commercial exploitation of homeopathic medicine.

What about light brownish old scars (pigmentation) which are left after disappearance of acne ? They are mainly on shoulders and upper part of the back. Lach was given as constitutional with good results regarding hair falling in eyebrow but no change in scars. Kali-brom also was given. There's a history of hair removal from face using "thread" and the acne started after this experience. Hope someone will share his experience.

Hani, I have had good results with graphites 6 or 9 once a day till the scar goes away, generally between 2 to 4 weeks.
Comment by Hani Abdel Kader on June 11, 2011 at 5:16am
Thank Yvonne,,,,I tried Graph 30C but maybe it required less potency so I will try your recommendation. I have put her one nit-ac so I will wait till i see its results first as I care now for scars more that looking for the constitutional as she's a girl and a little impatient :) !
