Dr. Changaris was developing novel ultraviolet light treatments for psoriasis when he noticed their skin gets very dry.
However, when he looked at the available moisturizers, he had a problem. There was not one safe enough to use during ultraviolet light therapy. So, he decided to make one. He began with the safest ingredients possible: plant oils, amino acids, vitamins, and minerals.
He refused to use any artificial surfactants, which everyone else believed was essential to making a cream moisturizer. As a biochemist and a photobiologist, he believed that artificial surfactants have a potential for causing skin cancer during ultraviolet treatments.
In 2005, Mrs. Changaris came home looking like she had slept in a Poison Ivy Patch. Her physician had given her a soy-containing skin product. So, Ceela developed the first soy free, common food allergen free skincare.
Since 2005, the world has awakened to the growing problems common food allergens can cause skin.
Consider that the world has now discovered that Putting Common Food Allergens On Your Skin Can Make You Become Food Allergic. Back in the day, few physicians believed that skincare could cause problems with wheat, soy, corn, dairy, eggs, shellfish, fish. Finally, we know that if you put these on eczema or atopic dermatitis, you are likely to develop a food allergy. The Ceela Difference: Deeper Integrity by keeping allergens from causing future and present problems.
We discovered along the way that CLA in vitro has powerful effects on methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus. It also keeps away many other human pathogens, including fungus and molds. While Ceela has no FDA claims for the GRAS (generally recognized as safe) CLA oil, we believe it can really help skin in a big way. We were awarded another US patent for this discovery.
Please note that none of these statements have been reviewed by the US FDA. We are making no claims that conjugated linoleic acid can diagnose or treat disease.
