Poorly controlled diabetes leads to changes in the blood vessels, circulation, nerves and structure of skin and connective tissue that can result in:Limited joint mobility and/orChanges in posture and co-ordination and/orDecreased or altered nerves sensitivity and/orAltered (reduced /impaired) blood flowAs a result, the surface parts of the body, most particularly the feet are substantially more susceptible to the set of symptoms called Diabetic Foot Syndrome, that includes:Physical deformationGreater susceptibility to friction and pressureSkin cracking Consequentially, calluses and other injuries may go undetected because of reduced feeling in your feet; deep infections can result in part, due to decreased circulation. This happens more often when someone has been living with diabetes for some time.We have excluded sugars and glycerol along with other ingredients typically found in normal moisturisers that are already in excess in those with Diabetic Foot Syndrome. We have also included natural ingredients like Nettle leaf, essential fatty acids and potent antioxidants such as Pomegranate seed extract that are missing in diabetic skin. Also included are ingredients that are antibacterial such as Nettle leaf, Chamomile and Red clover extracts.
