Borage DiabetiCare™ Foot Cream addresses the fundamental cause of dry skin in diabetics by supplying OMEGA-6 oils directly to skin cells. Borage is the richest known source of gamma-linlenic acid (GLA), an OMEGA-6 fatty acid crucial in the development of healthy skin cells. Many diabetics have GLA deficiency, resulting in chronic dry skin and putting them at increased risk for foot skin problems.

A Diabetic Educator Study
As a result of a marketing survey, Diabetic Educators recommended Borage DiabetiCare™ lotions to at least 3,831 individuals with mostly Type-2 Diabetes.
Patient and Educator / Nurse feedback on the benefit of Borage DiabetiCare™ for these 3,831 people in this survey was almost 100% positive. The positive feedback ranged from "I liked this product" to "This is the most effective lotion for dry skin I have ever used."
57% of those who responded said that the Lotion was very effective for their patients as well as their own chronic dry skin conditions. Of this group, 16% said that it was better than any other lotion they had ever tried.
Almost all said they were likely to purchase Borage DiabetiCare™ exclusively in the future.
