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.
