When you have psoriasis, it is difficult to come to terms with the way your skin looks. The redness and scales can attract unwanted attention from others and what's more, patients have to cope with itchy skin on a daily basis.
60 to 90% of psoriasis patients have itchy skin*, which really affects their quality of life: sleep problems, fatigue, impact on everyday activities.

The impact of psoriasis on quality of life is an important factor to take into account. Dermatological tools have been developed and approved to measure the impact of the skin disease on quality of life. 
The Dermatology Life Quality Index (DLQI) is a tool approved and used by dermatologists to measure the quality of life of their patients. It is a 10-question questionnaire on the impact of the skin disease on various aspects of life (work, activities, relationships with others, etc.).

Ducray Laboratories, dedicated to improving the quality of life of patients, use this tool to measure the impact of the disease.

Thus, for our new range of KERTYOL P.S.O. care products for psoriasis-prone skin , we have demonstrated that using the rebalancing treatment shampoo can improve patients' quality of life score by 79%, from 1 month of use.

With the daily hydrating balm, we demonstrated that after 1 month, itching intensity was reduced by 59%. Half of patients no longer felt the urge to scratch and their quality of sleep was improved by more than 70%.
