Why Is Skin Health Important?
The skin is our first line of defence, protecting the body against bacterial infections and pathogens from leaching into circulation. And as our skin is the largest organ of the entire body, it makes sense to care and nurture it.
Another reason why it’s crucial to maintain good skin health is to promote vitamin D production. This vitamin plays a key role in many bodily functions, such as regulating healthy moods and strengthening the immune system, bone and skin health. Healthy skin also helps to regulate body temperature by allowing us to perspire when too hot and get goose bumps, when too cold, in order to trap warm air, to hold onto body heat longer.
To maintain skin health and reduce the risk of infection, try Melrose Health nutritional oils and wholefood powders. Our Australian flaxseed oil has powerful anti-inflammatory properties from it's plant polyphenols and fatty acids, that help alleviate skin irritation, inflammation, and redness. Great for chronic skin conditions, such as dermatitis, rosacea, and acne.

Additionally, our Essential Reds powder contains a super blend of berries, beetroot and microalgae, rich in antioxidants to protect and nourish skin.
