Inflammatory skin disorders include indications such as irritative or atopic dermatitis, psoriasis and acne. These indications are typically treated with corticosteroids, antibiotics, anti-inflammatories and antihistamines.

There is a whole range of less aggressive therapies such as UV-related treatments, oil/fatty-acid based applications or dietary suggestions, which require a more long-term perspective.
Phytoceuticals has developed two different formulations based on natural extracts, for which a Proof-of-principle case series is being performed.
