Psoriasis Ointment For Itch & Pain Relief
Find relief from the itch and discomfort of psoriasis with Waxelene.
Psoriasis is a chronic immune system condition that affects millions of people worldwide. It causes skin cells to grow faster than normal, resulting in red, itchy, and scaly patches on the skin. Psoriasis can be extremely irritating and even painful – often making it hard to sleep or concentrate. Psoriasis can also make sufferers feel self-conscious about the scaly plaques and rashes associated with psoriasis.
Waxelene is a natural and effective psoriasis treatment ointment that can help to reduce inflammation and soothe the skin. Our patented beeswax-based waterproof barrier won’t clog pores and has a gentle rosemary scent thanks to its organic blend of nurturing oils.
While not curable, psoriasis symptoms can continue to be relieved with the help of psoriasis relief products such as Waxelene’s Multi-Purpose Ointment. Compared to a conventional over-the-counter psoriasis ointment or topical cream, Waxelene’s skincare range is crafted of natural ingredients and certified USDA organic.
Waxelene has created a number of soothing, moisturising products that assist with caring for and maintaining sensitive skin, as well as a dedicated baby Calming Ointment with lavender that can help to relieve symptoms caused by psoriasis and similar skin conditions such as eczema.
We recommend our beeswax-based Multi-Purpose Ointment as the best moisturizer for people with psoriasis. Beeswax has been used for centuries as a natural skin moisturizer and protector. It is rich in vitamin A, which helps to promote healthy skin cell growth and repair. The added natural oils in Waxelene Multi-Purpose Ointment, such as organic rosemary oil and Vitamin E oil, are also rich in antioxidants that help to nourish and protect the skin.

Frequently Asked Questions
What should you not put on psoriasis?
Keeping psoriasis moist is the key to successful treatment – so products containing alcohol, menthol or any “cooling effect” ingredient can ultimately make psoriasis worse by drying it out. It’s not suggested to use products with a laundry list of unknown chemical ingredients for the same reason.
Petroleum jelly is sometimes recommended as an occlusive to keep moisture locked in the skin, but its impermeable nature can lead to blocked sebaceous glands and further irritation.
As a petroleum jelly alternative, Waxelene’s Multi-Purpose Ointment provides both a protective barrier against further inflammation and works to soothe itchy, sore skin with its light, aerated texture and unique blend of organic oils.
How do you calm down a psoriasis flare up?
When the itching of psoriasis plaques becomes too much, Waxelene is here to help.
After cleaning any affected areas gently with cool water and a mild soap-free cleanser, pat dry with a soft towel and apply Waxelene straight away to lock in moisture and assist with the healing process.
For psoriasis itching relief, Waxelene can be used as an all-purpose moisturizer in conjunction with prescribed topical skin treatments such as salicylic acid, coal tar and corticosteroids. Our Multi-Purpose Ointment is certified organic and safe to use for the whole family.
Is it better to keep psoriasis moist or dry?
Symptoms of psoriasis are generally worse when your skin is dry. Sun exposure and ultraviolet therapy have been known to help in some cases as a natural antibacterial, but the best thing you can do for effective psoriasis pain relief is to keep the affected skin protected from further skin damage and well moisturized.
What worsens psoriasis?
Psoriasis is a chronic condition that can be triggered or worsened by a variety of factors. Unfortunately, the list of things that can trigger or worsen psoriasis is much longer than the list of soothing treatments.
Everyday triggers that can make psoriasis worse include:
- Picking or scratching at the affected skin
- Very hot baths and showers that strip the natural oils from your skin
- Cold, dry weather
- Consuming alcohol and highly processed foods
- Other skin injuries such as cuts and scrapes
- Some prescription medications – Consult a medical professional if you think this may be a problem.
Stress can also cause a heightened immune response that exacerbates existing issues. Meditation and deep breathing exercises are recommended if stress is a known trigger for a psoriasis flare. We love our Calming Ointment with therapeutic lavender to help wind down.
To keep skin hydrated and help to prevent future flare-ups, drink plenty of water and apply a barrier cream or ointment for psoriasis such as Waxelene Multi-Purpose Ointment to affected skin after bathing to lock in moisture.
