I am writing this post because so many people have contacted me about the amazing results they have experienced with MRL Restore . For me it is no surprise, I created this product initially for wound healing, packing the injuries and binding overnight gave amazing healing benefits and the speed with how it healed was incredible. I am known for my bespoke skin treatments, creating specific concoctions to treat specific conditions as well as treating the internal, so it seemed a natural process to introduce this beautiful blend of ingredients into my professional treatments. Conditions like rosacea, acne, pigmentation were getting fabulous results as well as general skin health. I had already released the Epidermal Blanket and although knew this would be an amazing product to bring to market did not relish the process of doing it so just settled on using it in the clinics. It was not until I treated the beautiful Alessandra Steinherr and gave her some of my mixture for her to use that she encouraged me to go ahead and get it out there. (you can see Alex talking about the Restore (formerly known as Dermabiome) here
MRL Restore is essentially a healing product, you can use it to help burns, cold sores, cuts, insect bits, nettle stings, wounds, eczema, psoriasis, scar tissue as well as the usual suspects with skin. It works in many ways, as well as ‘feeding the skin’ it balances the epidermal flora and fauna, it also protects against the absorption of environmental pollution, metal toxicity and UV pollution.
The skin’s eco system has its own unique community of microbes. These organisms need to thrive in an environment that has sufficient resources, so they can adapt to every skin condition and skin type. This can be beneficial for healthy skin but when they adapt to the wrong environment they can show symptoms of acne, inflammation, sensitivity, rosacea etc. Restore balances helps to support the skin’s natural flora and fauna and has antibacterial, anti- inflammatory, rejuvenating and brightening results. It is fortified in Phytonutrients, also known as phytochemicals, which are chemicals produced by plants and are used to protect the skin from environmental toxicity among other factors. It also has been created with Probiotic Technology, including 8 strains of live bacteria culture that target a wide range of imbalances in the skin. A single species probiotic is very unlikely to deliver as many benefits as a multi-strain probiotic, which colonises and acts upon multiple locations in the body. Restore multi-strain formula works in more areas and provides better protection against a wider range of harmful bacteria, fungi, parasites, yeasts that may be present on the skin.

In the Journal of the American Medical Association Dermatology, it was suggested that, based on several studies, ‘green teas possess anti-inflammatory and anti-carcinogenic potential, which can be exploited against a variety of skin disorders’. The catechin EGCG is especially beneficial, and makes up a large percentage of the antioxidants in green tea. EGCG has been found in research to reactivate dying skin cells! While these benefits are limited to the outer layer of skin (as the tea’s properties aren’t absorbed beyond that), the research suggests that these benefits are significant, including healing of cells – all of which fight signs of premature aging like age spots, wrinkles, and sun damage.Tannins in green tea act as an astringent . The tea also help to reduce the production of sebum (the skin’s natural oil) by the glands in each pore. This makes it a much better solution than harsh conventional treatments for those with oily skin, which just work by removing excess oil, rather than by reducing production.
