Radx Radiation Therapy, 3.3 oz was developed in conjunction with oncology doctors and nurses to help prevent radiation dermatitis.
Formulated to provide immediate pain relief, reduce inflammation and help aid in hydration of all dermal layers, RadX can be applied every 30 minutes or as needed on the whole body.
Key ingredients include:
- Lidocaine HCL 2%
- Organic Aloe
- Sea buckthorn
- Hyaluronic acid
2% Lidocaine HCL is the correct amount for immediate relief and continued relief. A higher % will possibly damage compromised skin. Less won’t do much for someone in pain.
Beta Glucan protects the skin’s barrier. This Swiss-patented ingredient has been shown to penetrate the dermis, delivering deep skin benets. Helps prevent cell damage and soothes redness and irritation topically and sub-dermally.
Hyaluronic Acid was pretty much unknown when we inserted this into Radx. Its presence is specifically to retain moisture and it has been shown clinically to retain 1000 times its volume in moisture. The enemy of a radiation patient is drying of the skin during treatments.
Radish Root Ferment is a natural source of hyaluronic acid, which is essential for keeping skin hydrated.
Hydrolyzed Silk promotes elasticity and smooth complexion. Helps the skin’s water barrier to retain moisture. It also provides a radiant glow and easily blends into and soothes skin. Sea Buckthorn is rich in fatty acids which are a key component of ceramides. Ceramides are like a glue that holds the skin together and creates a barrier that seals in moisture. Rich in anti-oxidants, supports skin regeneration. Sea Buckthorn is an anti-inlammatory grown in Ukraine and Croatia, which improves skin tone and texture.
Olive Oil produced ingredients are added because they are so skin-beneficial. From Olives, Linoleate/Oleate improves skin texture and provides long-lasting, rich, non-sticky, silky smooth feeling.
Cetearyl Olivate, an olive oil extract, is rich in fatty acids and will enhance smoothness of skin. Moisturizes and protects skin.
Hydrogenated Olive Oil contains all the benecial fatty acids, such that when used on the skin, it can readily get absorbed and start healing dry skin, forming a layer which prevents skin’s hidden moisture from escaping. Preserves the moisture under the sheath made by its molecules
Tocopherol (natural vitamin E) has moisturizing properties. Studies have shown that applying tocopherol can improve the skin’s water-binding capacity. Protects from dryness.
Allantoin, from aloe vera, has many health benets and is a multi-functional ingredient. Hydrates skin, reduces itchiness, heals minor injuries, and improves the overall texture and appearance of skin. Especially beneficial for dry skin, a major concern for radiation patients.
Aloe Gel is beneficial to a radiation patient for moisture, cell regeneration and pain relief. Bromelain, a pineapple extract, reduces irritation, redness and inflammation and is beneficial for pain reduction.
Coconut Oil hydrates skin and re-enforces its natural defensive barrier to better retain moisture. Anti-inflammatory properties benefit radiation patients because they prevent dryness, redness and swelling.
Papaya Seed Oil aids in the relief of itchy, scaly, irritated skin conditions. Rich in Omega 3 and 6 essential fatty acids. Contains vitamins A, C and E, which can help promote faster healing and recovery of damaged skin. Reduces redness and improves wound healing with increased epithelial thickness, collagen formation and faster wound contraction. High concentration of Oleic Acid, which creates an occlusive layer which traps moisture beneath it.
Sunflower Seed Oil hydrates and is full of anti-oxidants: Vitamin A, C, D, E and K. It protects skin.
