I’m really excited about this new skin supplement brand called Pellamex, the world’s first supplement created for eczema and dry skin. I’m lucky to have been sent a month’s supply to try and today I had the first gel.
The story behind Pellamex
The first of its kind in the global market, Pellamex has been formulated by leading skin biologist, Dr Neil Gibbs alongside a team at the University of Manchester’s dermatology department, for those with dry, sensitive and eczema-prone skin.
People with eczema often have less filaggrin
Unlike creams and lotions, this smart supplement in ingested in liquid form and works to target the entire skin area. The highly effective formula combines a clinically-tested amount of a high-purity amino acid, l-histidine, with other key skin nutrients such as zinc, biotin, vitamins B2, B3 and E. This powerful combination works to increase your production of filaggrin, a protein, found in the epidermis. This plays a vital role in preventing water loss to retain essential moisture and strengthen the skin barrier, locking moisture in and keeping pollutants out. Alongside this, filaggrin is broken down by enzymes, creating amino acids which result in natural moisturising factor (NMF), which helps to improve our skin health and hydration.
Developed by skin experts
This powerful combination works to increase our production of filaggrin, a protein, found in the epidermis (outermost skin layer).
Developed by leading skin biologists, Pellamex’s patented technology has been put to the test in a clinical study where adults with eczema saw a 40% improvement in their skin over an 8-week period. Mike Cork, Professor of Dermatology at the University of Sheffield commented “This is the largest effect of any treatment affecting the skin barrier that I have seen in a clinical study. Seriously impressive effects.”
Daily dose in handy sachet
It’s never been easier to take back control and transform your skin from within. The daily 25ml dose comes in a portable sachet, which you can take on the go or dissolve into water for a refreshing drink. After just 30 days you can expect healthier, stronger, more hydrated skin.
Invented by Pellamex’s Founder, Dr Neil Gibbs
Dr Gibbs has worked in the dermatology sector for over 40 years. He holds a MPhil and PhD from St John’s Institute for Dermatology, is the author of over 70 scientific skin biology papers and has consulted for major, global skincare brands. He is a true powerhouse of evidence-based knowledge and information and is passionate about sharing information on the latest research, connecting science with a holistic approach to our skincare and overall health and wellbeing. Alongside his scientific work, he is an entrepreneur and inventor of several skin healthcare patents. Most notably, he is the founder and Chief Scientific Officer of the company behind Pellamex, the world’s first ingestible supplement for dry, sensitive and eczema-prone skin.

The science behind Histadine for eczema skin
I found this great article written by my favourite dermatologist Jennifer Fugo. You can read more here: Can histadine supplements help eczema skin and leaky gut? and also find an audio link to listen to from her podcast if you prefer.
Histadine works as well as mid potency topical steroids
According to the data, researchers found a dramatic improvement in eczema “similar to that of using mid-potency topical corticosteroids.”
And those in the study experienced a 40% improvement in their skin! WOW!
Supporting healthy skin naturally
I don’t think it’s a miracle cure but it certainly sounds promising and could be a great supplement to support healthier skin in people who are prone to dry skin and eczema.
You can watch this short video that explains more behind the research.

What supplements do you take for your skin? Would you like to try this new skin supplement? I’d love to hear your comments below.
Just for your info, I am also taking flax seed oil, fish oils, alfafa (for calcium) magnesium and some healing tinctures including milk thistle, burdock, nettle and dandelion. I am also taking Collagen with hyaluronic acid. More on that soon.
This reminds me of the article I wrote for Michelle on Foodsmatter called Thinny Skinnies eons ago, I think I talked about filligrin then. https://www.skinsmatter.com/thinny-skinnies/. Fascinating subject. So, this is basically a supplement that contains B vits, some minerals, collagen and histidine as far as I can tell? As histidine gets broken down to histamine and many people have poor breakdown of histamine itself, you’d think this would actually make some allergy symptoms worse because it raises histamine in the body, no? Interesting.

Hi Micki, I think it can do that yes, so if people take it it needs to be taken into account. Fascinating isn’t it, if it workds!
did you use this? How. did it work for you?
Ruth Holroyd says
I did take it but not sure it made a huge difference to my skin. It was also VERY sweet so not something I’d enjoy taking. However I think it would be great for kids. My skin is going through a lot of trauma and healing too and perhaps it would make sense to try for more than one month on normal eczema skin, not rabid TSW skin. If that makes sense. I love the idea and am now trying Histadine on its own as a supplement so I don’t have the over sweetness.
I’ve had eczeam intermittently over the years. always generally dry itchy skin. Just looking into some other treatment options and I’d love to know how you’ve gone since trying Histatine on it’s own.
Thanks in advance
Ruth Holroyd says
Hi Christa, well I’m still taking it, and I think I am less itchy. I still get a few itch attacks at nigh time but I think I might be a bit less itchy. Not sure if it’s to do with the Histadine or just healing. So hard to scientifically understand what’s going on isn’t it. Hoping to try some other itch reducing things soon so look out for blogs.
I have used this for about 3 years now and find it invaluable. My skin has improved gradually throughout that time.
Incidentally, I am in my early 70s and I find that as well as the dryness and soreness improving, I am getting far fewer wrinkles than I would expect over that period.
Interesting to find a real science-based medication rather than so many of these vague so-called healthy supplements.
Ruth Holroyd says
Hi Angela, great to hear you’ve had success with this supplement. I’m not really sure I understand how it works but if we can naturally aid the reduction of inflammation and reduce dryness and itching, we’re in a win win situation. I only took a month’s trial of this and couldn’t afford to keep on getting it. I don’t think I took it at the right time really, in TSW the skin is going through so much it’s impossible to know what’s what. My skin is so much better now it would be interesting to try again maybe. Do you take anything else for your skin health? and thanks so much for sharing this experience.
