Maállo is a medicinal skin therapeutic to reduce the symptoms of mild to moderate inflammatory skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema, rosacea dermatitis and neurodermatitis. Maállo is not a steroid.
In general, corticosteroids creams/ointments are first line treatment for the management of these chronic diseases. However, the ongoing use of corticosteroid creams/ointments contributes to epidermal atrophy, degeneration of the dermal structure and collagen deterioration.
The ongoing use of topical steroid – corticosteroids also contributes to a reduction in antimicrobial peptides (the skins immune cells). This lessens the skin’s ability to defend against bacterial and/or fungal overgrowth.
Topical steroids are not a cure and do not affect the underlying cause of the skin condition.
1) Modifies inflammatory cell signals within the skin.
2) Supports the skin’s internal hydration 24/7 to maintain the skin’s barrier function & repair capacity.
3) Supports the skin’s pH and antimicrobial peptide capacity to reinforce the skin’s immune function.
4) Reduces the risk of corticosteroid induced skin damage like skin atrophy (thinning).
Maállo is also suitable as a post steroid therapeutic (after corticosteroid treatment is complete) to reduce vulnerability to flares. Maintaining the barrier function of the skin reduces damage to the skin, reduces nerve dysfunction (itch scratch), reduces the frequency and severity of flare-ups, and the risk of skin complications.
Maállo is a long lasting lipid based penetrating ointment, not a water based cosmetic cream that sits on the top layer of the skin.
Water evaporates . . . lipids (fats) absorb.

Maállo is a medicinal skin ointment that provides occlusive, humectant and emollient properties to support the three layers of the skin. Occlusives block water loss from the skin, humectants attract water within the skin and emollients fill spaces between skin flakes with droplets of oil. Maállo also modifies inflammation within the dermis (middle) and hypodermis (bottom fatty) skin layers to address dermatologic symptoms. Maállo also provides anti-fungal, and anti-microbial properties.
Cosmetic, and bath/body type creams provide emollients properties. Emollients fill spaces between skin flakes on the epidermis (top) skin layer with droplets of oil and provide temporary comfort. Cosmetic type skin creams do not penetrate the dermis or hypodermis skin layers. Maállo has trans-dermal properties that deliver the medicinal ingredients to the dermis and hypodermis skin layers.
