Did you know that the ingredients in Ungex treatments have antiviral properties? In this post we will discuss about our principle aim of treating Demodex mites, and how the ingredients in our products can also be helpful in other ways too.
How can Ungex help remove Demodex mites?
Ungex Pty Ltd is an Australian company pioneering the global market in personal care and solutions for skin parasites, specifically Demodex mites – an 8-legged microscopic parasite that thrives on the sebaceous glands under the human hair follicles. Not many know about the existence of Demodex, or understand how these mites (when found in high densities) can cause or irritate various skin and hair issues such as blepharitis, acne, hair loss, rosacea, dandruff, crawling sensations, and many more.
In 2012, Ungex won the Best Invention Award at the Malaysia Technology Expo for our unique innovation in Demodex hair mite’s solution. For years we have researched and developed a range of treatments and care plans for those suffering from serious infestations of Demodex by cutting out their food source to create an uninhabitable environment on the human skin, supplying needful nourishment to promote healthy hair and skin, which then results in aiding in the relief of symptoms caused by these mites.
Are Ungex products natural?
Ungex products not only have the right blend of natural and herbal ingredients that help kill Demodex mites, they are also gentle on the skin for everyday use.
We pride in our development of finding the right blend of natural and herbal ingredients that help eliminate Demodex mites and are gentle on human skin for everyday use. Our products do not contain artificial colors, parabens, silicones, gluten, SLS and SLES.
But beyond the goodness of using herbal and natural ingredients, what other properties can be found in our products? Let’s take a closer look.
Ungex products’ ingredients in SDT and PDT have antiviral properties.
Over the years, our clients have reported other benefits too, such as disinfectants against microorganisms (microbes, bacteria, viruses, etc.), anti-parasitic as well as antiviral methods in which both can help kill and repel possible vectors such as mosquitoes, fly’s, etc. when used on the skin and/or personal items for long duration to prevent cross-transfer of such problems.
Our Australian made products, especially ‘PDT’ and ‘SDT‘ have natural-based ingredients with antiviral properties that may help prevent the transfer of many microorganisms and they can be sprayed on personal items that come in contact with the eyes and face such as breathing masks, glasses, towels, bedding and etc. that may be helpful in reducing the risk of cross-transfer of infections from those who may suffer from such contagious infestations.
