WHY NS 8 HEEL BALM IS UNIQUE
PODIATRISTS AND NS 8
Podiatrists recommend NS 8 because
• Feels good and it really works!
• Absorbs quickly – so patients don’t slide in shoes
• Non greasy – so patients don’t slip on floors
• Intensive moisturisation plus exfoliation
• Ideal for patients with diabetes - no foot files needed
• NATURAL and PETROLEUM free - peace of mind. (Fissures allow faster absorption of toxic ingredients into the bloodstream).
DIABETES AND NS 8
• People with Diabetes have reduced sensation in their extremities, particularly in their feet
• Using physical abrasion, such as foot files and pumice stones, is not recommended.
• Skin may be removed unknowingly, which can lead to diabetic foot ulcers which in turn can lead to amputations.
• NS 8 Heel Balm gently but effectively exfoliates thickened skin without the use of foot files.
• Skin provides a protective barrier against infection by secreting natural oils, such as sebum not only soften skin, but also maintain the normal pH balance to inhibit bacterial and fungal growth.
• NS 8 Heel Balm is an intensive moisturising complex which contains Natural Moisturising Factors which are more easily absorbed and therefore more effective.
NS 8 Heel Balm Complex is the best choice for feet and heels affected by diabetes

DIABETES AND MOISTURISATION
• It is very important to look after the skin on the feet.
• Dry skin can be itchy and result in skin infections and complications such as cellulitis.
• Dry skin can be prevented by using a natural moisturiser and cleansing with a soap-free wash.
• Dry skin is more sensitive and therefore it may be beneficial to avoid known skin irritants like parabens, propylene glycol, tea tree oil, lanolin, colours and perfumes
• Natural moisturisers are quickly absorbed by the skin.
• Skin provides a protective barrier against infection by secreting natural oils.
