Kratom Skin Care FAQ

What is kratom and how is it related to skincare?
Kratom has its own antifungal properties. Making it great for those who have sensitive skin, eczema, psoriasis, and acne. The Rubs are great topically to help relieve aches and pains on the go. Muscle bath bombs are meant to relax the body and the mind after a hard days work and a great way to relieve stress. 

Can Kratom be applied topically for skincare benefits?
Yes. With its antifungal properties, kratom is a wonderful aspect for those with sensitive skin.  As a medical Aesthetician, I work hard to provide skincare that actually works without the myth of 5 – 7 days to let your skin get used to the product. My products show proof the next day. 

Are there specific kratom strains recommended for skincare?
No. I use any kind. I’ve studied the use of kratom in skincare for 10 years now and there’s no difference.  I used to think the white kratom helped energize people in my muscle bombs. That’s not the case.  All kratom you soak in gives the same relaxing effect. 

How does Kratom contribute to skin health and wellness?
It’s been an amazing addition to my skincare products for those looking for immediate results and softer skin. 

Can kratom help with common skin conditions like acne?
Absolutely! Each clay has different properties. The green clay is the best product for acne, along with the Blueberry aloe spot treat.  Then use the daily exfoliate, which also has kratom in it, and exfoliate with every wash for smoother skin. The daily exfoliation helps reduce the appearance of acne scars.  

Are there any potential side effects of using kratom in skincare?
No. Absolutely not. 

What are the recommended methods of applying kratom for skincare?
The facial bars are just that, it’s a bar of soap, meant for simplistic and to help keep the use of preservatives off your face. The clay holds the powerhouse of each kratom facial product. 

Pink – for normal skin types
Purple  – great for aging skin and sensitive skin
Green – for acneic skin and cystic acne
Blue – for oily skin. 
Activated charcoal – for those with congested skin

I blend the activated charcoal In each clay to give the help of decongestion as well as a clean wash for those with combination skin. 

Is Kratom suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin?
Yes. That is where the Purple clay comes in. As a face wash and mask. The purple clay works wonders for those with sentiment skin. 

How long does it take to see potential results in skincare with Kratom?
1 day. 

Are there specific guidelines for using Kratom-infused skincare products?
No. If you notice a bar, oil, or moisturizer, isn’t working for you. Send an email or message on Facebook and I will guide you to the correct skincare product as a free replacement.  

Can Kratom be used in conjunction with other skincare products?
It can. There’s nothing that will diminish the effect of other skincare products. I do recommend sticking with the products recommended for the best results as some counter products can have perfumes and other ingredients that are not good for those looking for better skin and fast results. 

Are there any precautions or considerations for pregnant individuals using Kratom for skincare?
Absolutely not. Just remember, at this point, skin goes through changes that come with changing hormones. So what works before pregnancy, may not work during or after.  I am available to help get the mother the correct skincare products during the changes. 

How does Kratom differ from other natural ingredients used in skincare? 
I have studied ingredients and done a lot of chemistry in products to see that kratom is the key to the ingredients to my products. How I use it in there, how I make it and to be careful not to overcook kratom Sonthe Properties still exist in each product. The moringa-infused kratom lotion has proven itself over and over again, with psoriasis, eczema, and cystic acne! I can’t say enough about it. 

What role do Kratom’s alkaloids play in its potential skincare benefits?
None as there is no way to absorb kratom into the skin so the active alkaloids that a person would have by taking kratom are not what you’d have by topically using it. The twisted muscle rub is one of a kind. The fact that it has the amount of pain relief In it, still to this day, is amazing to me. I use it every day for my neck pain. 

Can Kratom be used for addressing specific skin conditions like eczema or psoriasis?
Yes, as stated before. The Moringa-infused lotion helps relieve the dry itchy skin long after a shower. 

Kratom Herbal Supplement FAQ

Are there different strains of Kratom used in herbal supplements? 
Yes, there are several strains of kratom and each has its own effects. 

Reds are for bed
Greens in between
White for energy
Yellow for those who need a little more come down
The Blends are just that. MD blend for those looking for a little of everything without a crash or sleepiness, I do supply samples for those wanting to find what works for them. 
Tri-blend is a blend of 2 greens and a white.
Energy blend is 1 green and 2 Whites. 
Red blend is a blend of 3 reds. 

It’s an important factor to remember what works for one person may not work for you and never take someone else’s recommended dose.  Always start with 2g. (I cannot tell you how to take it)  there’s a Facebook page to assist with any questions you may have. 

Can Kratom be combined with other herbal supplements safely?
Absolutely. Magnesium citrate and vitamin D3 are the main vitamins that kratom works well with, I mean, it works well with others, but magnesium and kratom help the joints and muscles relax before bed. As a Naturalist, I always recommend taking all vitamins or herbal supplements before bed, unless it’s meant to help maintain a healthier day. 

What precautions should be considered before using Kratom?
None, just be sure you are only taking 2g to start. Never take someone else’s recommendations for the first time. A key to remember, your body can only absorb so much kratom. If you take too much, kratom can cause an upset stomach nausea, and vomiting.  You will not die, but you will feel sick for about 8 hours. So take kratom wisely. 

How long does it take for Kratom to take effect?
About 30 minutes.  So take 2g and wait 30 min. If you don’t FEEL it (like a warm hug) take 2 more grams. When you feel the hug, stop taking it and only take that amount every time. 

Are there any potential side effects associated with Kratom?
As stated above. Too much kratom can cause nausea, vomiting, and a drunk feeling. Though this effect is a scary feeling, throwing up helps, and sleep will aid in relief.  Please seek more information from our Facebook page.
