The company founders were the same people who introduced aloe vera gel to the general public, advancing it beyond the health food store product that it was in the 1970s and 1980s. Radx Moisture Therapy follows in that same vein,using a raw ingredient relatively new to consumers...prickly pear cactus gel, formulated into a moisturizing/healing lotion. Studies indicate that this gel contains skin-beneficial ingredients that are helpful in the preparation of the skin for radiation treatments.
Irradiation depletes the skin of moisture,and can reduce elasticity. Radx Moisture Therapy,used for several days before treatment begins,and during the first few days of the treatment,can reduce the damaging effects of radiation. Moisture Therapy is also excellent as a post-treatment follow-up to help replenish moisture as well as aid in cell regeneration during the skin-building process...without leaving a greasy residue found in many other moisturizers. It is used daily by medical professionals to offset the drying effects of frequent hand-washing.
