Description: A topical herbal application which may help reduce the size and visibility of sun spots.Sunspots are a possible predictor of skin cancer. These red patches, caused by sun exposure, are made of abnormal cells that can mutate into malignant cells in the basal, or lower layers of the skin. 

Ingredients: Extracts of Blood root and Devils apple with Hemp Oil in a natural cream base. 

Please note that the ointment variation does not penetrate through to the deeper skin layers as well as the cream does and therefore may not be as effective as the cream. Since the ointment has better stability and longer expiry in comparison with the cream, we recommend the ointment only for international mail orders with high risk of exposure to high temperature over long periods of time while in transit.

Historical Information: Devil's Apple (Solanum linnaeanum) is a poisonous nightshade species native to South Africa and is considered an invasive weed in Australia and New Zealand. The applications of devil's apple in combating cancer was tested and patented in the early 1980s by Bill Cham, who was then a medical researcher at the University of Queensland. Cham, who developed a cream made from the devil's apple flower, followed up anecdotal evidence from livestock owners that the growth of skin cancers and lesions had slowed down or cleared up in horses and cattle that ate the weed. Farmers were also known to rub the sap of the fruit to repair sunspots.

It has been shown, by clinical trials, that the selective anti-tumor effects of Devil's apple are due to Solasodine rhamnosyl glycosides compounds, also found in eggplants.
