Relieve the Itching, Fight the Inflammation

Itching, burning, sleepless nights.

We know what it's like. The Keto Rash (also called Prurigo Pigmentosa) can produce raised legions of itching and burning that, gone unchecked, can lead to painful boils.

Greg has experienced it first-hand, and he intimately understands how debilitating it can be.

How'd He Do It?

Stopping ketosis wasn't an option. Being the chemical engineer that he is, Greg ended up researching, testing, and finding a solution for himself that helped clear the rash in just a matter of days.

And now, that solution can be yours too.

Introducing, SciZenna's Black Seed Rub.

Ingredients backed by Science

Nigella sativa has been used for thousands of years, specifically for it's acclaimed healing properties. In the 21st century, we now know what exactly is fueling black seed oil. Using science and peer reviewed research, harnessing the anti-inflammation power of thymoquinone and getting it to your skin is easier than ever.

Nature has given us plenty of awesome and powerful ingredients. Extracts such as Arnica Montana Flower Extract, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, and Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil all join forces to give you a better, more pleasant experience with your skin condition.

Don't Believe Us?

Neither did we, until the research confirmed our hypothesis. Here are some highlights from our favorite Black Seed Oil research publications!

1. Research published in the Journal of the European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology has shown the effectiveness of Black Seed Oil at reducing atopic dermatitis. Participants applied Black Seed Oil to their hands over the course of four weeks and observed a 78% reduction in inflammatory symptoms! Not only that, but participants also reported an improved quality of life. (doi:10.1111/jdv.12033)

2. In a study published by Florida A&M University in the Journal of Neuroimmunology, researchers examined the effects of Thymoquinone (TQ) on various inflammatory markers, including IL-17 and IL-4. In this study, the focus was on neuroinflammation and the production of cytokines by microglia. The researchers found that Thymoquinone reduced IL-17 production of inflamed cells to 2% below control cells that were not inflamed. Meaning, not only did TQ reduce inflammatory cytokines for the untreated, activated cells - it reduced the cytokines to that below the control cells, which were never activated.

3. Research published in the Journal of Molecular Immunology examined the effects of topical TQ on the ears of mice with eczema. The researchers specifically looked at the change in concentration of IL-4, IL-5, IFN-gamma, and IgE antibody of mice with and without topical TQ treatment. The researchers found that topical TQ treatment was able to reduce IL-4 cytokine expression of mice with eczema to 13.9% less than the control, non-eczema mice. IL-5 and IFN-gamma levels were also reduced. IL-5 was reduced to 139% (originally 198% higher than the control) and IFN-gamma was reduced to 158% (originally a massive 602% higher than the control group). And last but certainly not least, topical TQ reduced IgE concentration from 2177 ng/mL (untreated eczema affected mice) to 693.6 ng/mL. The control group that did not have eczema had an IgE concentration of 591.4 ng/mL.(doi:10.1016/j.molimm.2018.07.013)
