Indications of Topi Berberis Cream

Dry forms of skin diseases, such as psoriasis and also in acne.

Berberis Aquifolium is an evergreen 1-2 m high bush, of the berberry family (Berberidaceae). It is widespread in the forests of the North American Pacific Coast. In Europe, it is cultivated in gardens and parks.

The tincture of Berberis Aquifolium has long been used in homoeopathy for the treatment of inflammatory, scaling dermatoses. It is prepared from the root and contains various alkaloids, including berberine, berbamin, and hydrastine. They have antipsoriatic, antiphlogistic, and antimicrobial activities. Topi Berberis Cream contains 10% of Berberis aquifolium MT.

Psoriasis is a chronic disease of the skin, which often persists lifelong. The skin shows typical erythematous plaques, sometimes adherent or confluent, covered with white or silvery shiny scales usually without itching. The lesions can cover the whole body, but typically they are located on knees, elbows, head, and eyebrows. The cause of psoriasis is found in disturbances in the normal development of skin-forming cells. The lifetime of epidermal keratinocytes is shortened, leading to increased proliferation and various histological changes in the epidermis.

The aetiology of psoriasis is still not completely clarified. Meanwhile, genetic predisposition has been proven scientifically. The course of the psoriatic condition is extremely heterogeneous and both its initial eruption as well as the frequency of recurrences are generally influenced by various internal & external factors such as anxiety or stress, metabolic & hormonal dysfunction, drugs, etc.

Topi Berberis Cream alleviates the symptoms and supports the healing process of psoriatic lesions. It is suitable especially for the subacute and chronic phases and it can be used for stabilization during symptom-free periods. The cream has a positive influence on other forms of dry skin diseases, e.g. dry eczemas.

Acne: Acne vulgaris (common acne) is a frequently seen disorder of the sebaceous glands of the skin, which lie beside every hair follicle and produce an oily secretion called sebum. It is usually found where sebaceous glands are most active such as on the face, neck, and upper trunk.


Phytopreparations of Berberis Aquifolium have been used orally in American folk medicine for the treatment of various skin diseases. The tincture was introduced into homoeopathy for external treatment of psoriasis. Meanwhile, patient studies with Topi Berberis revealed its anti-cell proliferative and anti-inflammatory effect, on this disease.

Clinical studies with Topi Berberis for the treatment of subacute and chronic psoriasis showed it to be highly effective. In most patients, the symptoms improved significantly and in some cases, the psoriasis lesions disappeared completely. The overall success rate was 80% and the quality of life parameters improved during treatment. The tolerability was described as very good by the majority of patients. Therefore, it is especially suitable for long term use without side effects.

Mild to moderate acne is managed by Topi Berberis Cream.
