I am a frigging idiot. I keep putting up the same spam posts about my rat's ass oil product on Ground Up Strength thinking someone wants to buy the oil squeezed out of a rat's ass. Even though I get banned from the site I make a new account and do it over and over because I am a desperate pathetic weasel. When will I learn that people do not like ass oil and can get it for free anyway?
Anyway, this oil is nothing more than some random herbs (probably trace amounts of cheap extracts or something. or nothing at all) in cocunut oil. None of these herbs should have any benefit to any skin condition, let alone one that is thought to be of autoimmune nature. These kinds of products prey on the desperate.
You gotta understand how these scammers think. The first ingredient listed is "barberry". Barberry is sometimes promoted for skin conditions like yeast infections, hookworm, psoriasis, and bacterial infections. Although there may be some scant (and I mean scant) evidence that it helps a bit with psoriasis, the berberine it contains will kill bacteria in a test tube (pure berberine, folks) there is no reason to think it particularly effective for any of those conditions. It certainly has no reason to be effective for vitiligo, which is not caused by fungus, or bacteria, but seems to be autoimmune. Why is it in there? Because it is associated with treating skin conditions and vitiligo is a skin condition which causes the brown pigment in the skin to be disrupted so that irregular white patches occur (but the skin feels normal). This is thought to occur when the immune system attacks the pigment producing cells, although the true cause is unknown. You got white patches on your skin, and you're told it's vitiligo, and you are like most consumers, you'll go for crap like this. I am sorry to say, however, that there is no cure for vitiligo. There are a few treatments that are somewhat successful and it is best to consult a physician about your options.
This same spamming website is connected with Gordon's Herbal Research scam. At least I think it's the same one. I don't quite remember but I am 95% sure. There are other sites that sell this oil, as well.
There is NO over-the-counter topical or oral product which will treat vitiligo in any way, whether producing repigmentation or just controlling the disease process itself. There are lots of medical treatments that have varying success. The main treatment is PUVA/PUVASOL, which is a psoralen combined with UVA treatment. Topical and systemic corticosteroids are also used, as well as various other drug treatments. The success rates of all the different treatments are variable and none are one hundred percent affective in all patients. Some who have repigmentation, also, find the disease reasserting itself at a later date.
