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. 

The poisonous species of Devil's apple (Solanum linnaeanum), and the deadly nightshade (Solanum nigrum) are considered invasive weeds in Australia and New Zealand but studies have shown these may be beneficial for some skin conditions. One of the main active ingredients of the fruits of this family of plants are the so called solasodine glycosides, shown to help improve the appearance of sun damaged skin. 

This product contains  Devil's apple extract in an emolient base with hemp oil to help soften and moisturise the affected area. Apply topically two to three times a day. If the condition persists, please visit your doctor.

Caution: Test for hypersensitivity on a small area to exclude the possibility of allergic reaction to any of the ingredients.

The applications of devil's apple 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 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.
