In today's blog, we are excited to present our new product launched this month, which is a topical cream for the relief of dry eyes. First, let´s talk a little more about the condition itself, commonly known as dry eye.
Dry eye is a painful and irritating condition. It occurs when the eyes do not secrete enough tears, leading to itching, weeping and burning sensations. There is often a feeling of grit and vision can become temporarily difficult.
Dry eye is more common as age increases and especially frequent during menopause due to hormonal changes. Other external factors such as the use of screens, excessive exposure to air conditioning, use of contact lenses, prior eye surgery and smoking can add to or even cause the condition. In addition, certain autoimmune diseases can cause dry eyes, and some drugs encourage the condition to develop.
One of the main fields of application of DHA is ophthalmology as it is the only Omega3 present in the retina. Therefore, it is not surprising that in dry eye, clear improvements are seen after DHA supplementation. At BrudyLab we have been carrying out clinical trials in large populations with dry eye for many years. We have seen significant improvements both in terms of symptoms and inflammatory parameters in tears (see our trials for more information).
To date, dry eye treatment has been with oral supplementation of BrudySEC and the application of artificial tears such as BrudyAL for an instant relief.
BrudyDerm Dry Eye, launched this month, provides a new alternative. It is a cream for night application on and around the eyelid. As the product sits on the skin, a process of hydration and transdermal decongestion of the ocular surface occurs. This is also maintained as you sleep. Thus, the eye receives the additional bonus and benefits of continuous treatment, 24 hours a day.
BrudyDerm Dry Eye is formulated with natural ingredients: DHA has a decongestant action, while hyaluronic acid and aloe vera provide a moisturizing effect. The essential oils provide a pleasant aroma and act as natural preservatives. The added bonus of oils such as olive and avocado provide an extra deep nutrition to the skin.
BrudyDerm Dry Eye has been clinically proven, demonstrating significant improvements in dry eye in just two weeks of application – and without any side effects.
It also produces relief for areas of eczema on the face and eyelid and shows a marked cosmetic effect in terms of luminosity, elasticity and softness of the skin.
