Press Release Body: Human demodex has no intermediate host. It passes its whole life
in the hair follicle and sebaceous glands of man. It is bisexual and reproduces
through intercourse at the openings of hair follicles, after which it goes back to
surrounding hair follicles and sebaceous glands to lay eggs and reproduce.

The life cycle of human demodex can be divided into five stagers. It is estimated
that about 12 hours after mating, the demodex will lay its eggs which will hatch 60
hours later. After 36 hours of feeding, the demodex larva will moult into
undeveloped protonymphs which move with sebum. After another 72 hours, they will
moult again into nymphs which are stronger. They are now capable of climbing out of
hair follicles and sebaceous glands to the surface of the skin. Another 60 hours
later, they finally moult into adult demodex. It takes about 14 days to complete a
whole life cycle. The lifespan of a female demodex is longer, about 30-60 days that
of a male is shorter. Human demodex is slow in motion, but will increase in
temperature. It avoids light, and loves warmth. Therefore, it is more active when
its human host is sleeping. Most adult demodex crawl out of the hair follicle at
this time to find mates to copulate at the openings.

During these five stages of development , the demodex will molt its shell once and
molt its skin thrice. It pierces with its pincers into its human host's histolytic
to feed, absorb nutrients from the hair follicles and sebaceous glands and complete
its life cycle. Its secretion, excretion and dead bodies will accumulate in the hair
follicles and sebaceous glands. Its parasitic activities will cause physio-chemical
stimulation and local adverse reaction. This may be the basis of the human body? How
does it affect our health? Attention and further study are needed to clarify these

There are two styles of the chelicerae inside the pleural aperture. The styles stick
from the basal bone and turn to the rear first, then turn down and extend to the
pleural aperture leaning against the plain-tube wall. The two club-shaped on chin
styles finally protrude from the rear edge of the pleural aperture to form an
incomplete partition between the styles. The stylets are capable of penetrating the
host's histocytes. They then suck the cell sap (cytochylema) through the laryngeal
bulb into the body.

If the demodex are to numerous, they will widely damage the tissues and cause
histo-pathalogical response, and lead to diseases, but they are likely to sap the
skin tissue nutrients of their host and enlarge the pores, thereby roughening the
skin and affecting the beauty of the host.

A new treatment available is seabuckthorn oil (Hippophae rhamnoides), which is the
active ingredient in FACEDOCTOR soap. Its activity is targeted against the mite to
reduce the inflammation under the skin and therefore provide relief of the
mechanisms that cause the rosacea complex of symptoms. The advantage that patients
find with the soap is the elegance of the cleansing vehicle in otherwise sensitive
skin, the presence of Vitamin E and aloe Vera which provide additional healing
properties, and other active ingredients such as astragalus membraceus and spirodela
polyrhiza, useful yeasts that augment the activity of the seabuckthorn oil.

My patients have found this to be well tolerated and useful either as monotherapy or
in addition to their other topical and/or systemic medications. We conducted a small
placebo-controlled double-blind study in the office which showed that the majority
of patients had a reduction of symptomatic erythema as well as reduction of response
to triggers.

In conclusion, this study has demonstrated the Face Doctor line of soaps to be an
effective natural weapon against the parasite and therefore the disease.
