Holy Mites! What's living inside your pores!

Holy Mites! What's living inside your pores!

2020 Apr 23rd

Zanqara for over 60 years has always come up with new formulas and products to meet the body’s needs and demands. Based on how food is processed, environmental factors, the different products one might have used, based on evolving mutations in genetic code; we have been forced to produce more and more in order to ensure your skin is well taken care of and repaired. When we explain that certain chemicals and ingredients are dangerous, it is never to scare our clients or new clients into buying from us. We simply care about your well-being - whether or not you buy from us. Knowledge is the first step to true beauty, and that is our gift to everyone.The human body is amazing and even after years of research and examination, we are still learning so much, and have barely scraped the surface of what our bodies are really capable of and go through on the daily bases, when considering so many different factors.

Stating that, we have put our focus on a very important matter. An issue that we consider vital and if ignored seriously consequential to each and every individual. This matter has been around for years and wasn’t that worrisome, but now, based on the how our world has transformed into a synthetic society, our bodies no longer can cope with this very concerning matter. It is a plague that no one is paying attention to, especially now, when its thriving in the world we have created and that is why we are putting all our attention onto it, because it is now an alarming and detrimental issue!

It is basic information that the body contains trillions of microorganisms, meaning every human cell is outnumber by 10 and the cells of each bacterium can multiply quickly either for our benefit or for our detriment.

That is why proper hygiene is so important, and we have been so proud that our products have always achieved marvelous results and met the needs of all our clients. Considering that we have over 500 formulas it would be hard to fathom that we felt compelled and obligated to create a new and complete line of products focusing on the one issue we feel should be addressed more so than any other skin dilemma.

Anyone who suffers from Acarophobia, Parasitophobia, Trypophoba, Scoleciphobia or Mysophobia will understand and appreciate our need and desire to concentrate on Demodex Folliculorum and Demodex Brevis. These are two types of mites that dwell primarily on humans, in fact they truly favor humans more than any mammal. Making us-- a primary luxury feeding ground for these critters.

Demodex Folliculorum- Can be found on the face and scalp, but they are primarily known as eyelash and eyebrow mites.

Demodex Brevis- Can be found all over the body, including face and scalp. Though concentrations of them can be found on décolleté, neck and eyelashes.

These critters are smart and opportunistic, they will rarely be found on children under 5 years old, so you can have peace of mind knowing your toddler is safe from these nasties even though you have them. These mite survive off the sebum our bodies produce, children under 5 don’t have enough sebum production to be a proper host, although if your child is prone to sweating, it is recommended you thoroughly bathe your baby and even use a gentle face cleanser to ensure any demos transferred from others (including yourself) are washed off.

Many would ask – “If I had them all this time, how come I haven’t noticed any skin conditions?” This question is understandable when one is assuming that these mites will cause them irritations and reactions as regular mites, ticks or bed bugs; Welts, lumps, rashes, blisters, redness, burning sensations and such-- the foretold signs of critter crawlers…. However, these demo mites produce affects that society has deemed as normal and marketed in a way, that we remain unaware of how truly dangerous these little body squatters are!

If you combine all you skin concerns, you will need several different products: your acne cleanser doesn’t address aging mutations, and your wrinkle cream doesn’t address rosacea or sensitivties, and your day cream doesn’t solve the black bumpy patches of black heads. All these are classified as different skin concerns when looking at them independently, when really what you should do is focus on the one thing that’s causing all those conditions to begin with – MITES!

Let it be mentioned, that we are not claiming that aging mutations, decrease in fibroblast activity is caused by mites, that is truly an issue to be address on its own--- though both cohesively go hand in hand when it comes to achieving overall health and youth-- you cannot ignore either one and expect results.

It may seem with what we say that we are trying to scare you. Confession…. WE ARE!

Because it is a matter to be worrisome over. When there is an infestation of mice or insects, one is repulsed and mortified… one quickly buys poisons or calls professionals to fumigate with harmful substances, why? Because, we cannot tolerate the sense that we are infected with something dirty and icky. So why on earth would anyone want to diminish the severity and the repugnant truth that we are manifesting skin conditions, such as: acne, hyperpigmentation, discoloration, black heads, white heads, bumps under the skin, Rosacea, dryness, swelling, puffiness, wrinkles, large pores, oiliness, and poor complexation, premature aging, flaking, dandruff, hair loss, inflammation, poor immune system, psoriasis, eczema, bad breath, alopecia, Blepharitis, broken capillaries, dry eyes, pink eye and so much more because of the infestation of mites occurring on our very own body.

So yes, with 60 years of excellence when it comes to research and develop, scientific advancement, revolutionary cellular manipulation formulas, nutrition, well-being protocols, we are saying this is something we want you to take serious, because it affects you and it affects the ones you love.

To understand our emphatic stance on this matter, we want to explain the pathology/microbiology/physiology/parasitology of these mites and give you a clear picture of what is taking place every second throughout the day in the simplest way possible.

These mites are transferrable, and they can transfer diseases (Including STDs) from one host to another. They prefer female hormones and will always be found in greater numbers on woman than on a man. Keep in mind, men with beards and excessive body hair will surely have more mites than the average woman.These mites bury themselves into the pores, ducts and glands of their hosts. Stating that, its understood that humans have approximately 5 million pores all over their bodies (a few hundred thousand more pores for men).

These mites have a 14-18 days life span (eggs to adults), when they die they remain in our pores, slowly being pushed to the surface to be washed off as we regularly cleanse ourselves and remove layers of dead skin. (Thank God for scrubs)

Demodex Folliculorum- Invisible with 4 legs, razor sharp teeth and are 0.3-0.4mm in length. These mites like to cluster together in a single pore, and rapidly reproduce. They move 10mm/h

Demodex Brevis- Invisible with 4 legs, razor sharp teeth and are 0.15-0.2mm in length. These mites prefer dwelling in solitude. Normally one mite per pore, although with poor hygiene they will cluster together. They also move 10mm/h.

Both mites do not defecate, therefore when they die and remain in your pores because they weren’t properly removed throughout the day with proper cleansing protocols, they decompose releasing fumes and bacteria of everything they are holding inside.

You may be thinking – “Well a few mites can’t be that dangerous?!”

We can use the droplet effect. You could have a tiny hole in one of your water pipes in your basement, you don’t see the water dripping, you don’t hear it dripping and yet day after day it accumulates and floods your basement even if by a little bit, enough to alert you that something is wrong. Well these mites are a billion times worse.

A single female Demodex can lay 10 to 12 eggs per pore, if you multiply that by the number of pores the human body has that would mean you have approximately 50-60 million eggs waiting to hatch all over your body and make their way out to feed off every square centimeter of your body. 5 adult Demodexes per cm2 (approx.6 pores) is considered pathogenic and an infestation that will lead to several different skin conditions including Demodicosis, and without daily cleansing your body can make an environment where 6 or more adult demos can live in a single pore. Imagine the multiplication of eggs being laid every day, waiting to hatch.

These are not the same numbers for everyone but it is ball park approximations that research and scientific studies can provide.

 ( Do you see this when you squeeze your pores-- if you do, you got mites)

These mites have teleiophillia desires. They crave hosts in the age group of 20-40 years old, because that is when human sebum production is at its highest peak and demos thrive in this oily acme. Their clusterization is monumental if not dealt with properly and rigorously. The older their host gets the better the living environment is for them, because wrinkles and a poor immune system provides with them extra safety, wide pores to lay mores eggs and bigger cuddle numbers in a single pore. Wrinkles allow protection from disruption because a wrinkle acts as a very cozy cave that they can dwell in peacefully.

If you are asking yourself – “How do I know if I have them before major skin issues arise?”

The following are good indications that you already have them.

  • Feeling little tickling sensations randomly (you can sometimes feel them walking across your skin)
  • Getting random pinching sensations
  • Getting random itches
  • Little bumps under the skin (buildup of eggs)
  • Excess of blackheads (in some cases the blackheads are buildup of dead mite bodies and the protruding bumps you can feel and can scrape off is in fact their tails exposed above the skin)
  • When you find a little pebble like substance on your eyelashes
  • When your eyes get randomly itchy
  • When you sometimes feel like something got into your, and rinsing your eye doesn’t help and the particular seems to have moved. (Sometimes the demos fall from your eyelashes into your eye)
  • When your eyelashes start to fallout more than normal
  • When your eyebrows get itchy or start losing hair
  • When you feel something moving in your hair or get a sudden desire to scratch your scalp
  • If you have fake eyelashes (This one is for certain)
  • If you wear heavy or thick make-up regularly

Now here is the most important fact, your skin care routine could actually be supplying them with a buffet. That’s right your acne line, your hydrating line, your anti-aging line could literally make the problem worse because your providing the mites with nourishment and emollients to indulge off happily for their 18 day lives. There are medicated creams that might be recommended because they contain killing agents (listed are effects of the ingredient), such as:

Crotamiton: leads to server burning sensations, stinging, irritation, rashes, redness. It stops the sense of itching by producing a counter irritation.

Metronizaole: Minor reactions include- nausea, mouth dryness, vomiting, and diarrhea. Severe reactions – Cerebellar Toxicity and lithium toxicity. Central nervous system dysfunctions like Ataxic gait, dysarthia, seizures, and encephalopathy, produce abnormal sperm, and lead to reproductive organs toxicity.

Permethrin: Mild Burning and stinging, redness, swelling, rashes, numbness or tingling where cmedicine was applied, considered a low to moderate toxin, causes enlargement of the live and cause nerve damage, and reproductive organ toxicity.

So the product meant to address the issue are actually harmful and will lead to further skin issues and pre-mature aging!
