OreganKnow Healing Ointment
OreganKnow, an OTC skin healing ointment contains a water soluble Oregano extract that is anti-inflammatory and antioxidant. A patented process removes the volatile oils leaving the active ingredients thus minimizing the risk of allergic contact dermatitis in the treatment of scratches, cuts, insect bites, ulcers, cracked skin and surgical wounds.
OreganKnow has the essential oils removed leaving behind the powerful natural antioxidants in the plant that protect the essential oil in nature. The health benefits of oregano with the essential oils have been prized from antiquity (Singletary 2001) and, accordingly, contemporary studies revealed that essential oils from oregano (Origanum vulgare) and other herbal plants in the Lamiaceae family manifest antimicrobial activity (Carson et al 1995, Baratta et al 1988, Faleiro et al 2003, Pasqua et al 2005, Delamare et al 2007). However, the use of essential oils as antimicrobial agent for skin healing is problematic because skin contact with essential oils lead to allergic response (Knight and Hausen 1994, Hausen et al 1999, Bleasel et al 2002, Trattner et al 2008,Singleta 2001). OreganKnow contains the water soluble fraction of the oregano leaves whose anti-inflammatory and antioxidant are safe to use on the skin and whose properties helps heal wound faster.
