    What does it do?

    The Chinese name Xiao Feng Pian literally translates as "clear wind pills." This classical formula is used for various skin conditions such as red, itchy, scaly skin rash.

    Xiao Feng San effectively expels pathogenic wind, eliminates dampness, clears heat and cools the blood. According to traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), skin conditions such as those mentioned above present when external wind-heat or wind-dampness is allowed to enter the body (often due to a deficiency of protective Qi) where it encounters pre-existing damp-heat. The wind then becomes trapped between the flesh and skin and is unable to vent externally or drain internally. Eventually, it transforms into wind-toxin presenting as red, itchy and/or purulent type skin lesions. The tongue may have a white or yellow coating (indicating the level of heat penetration) and the pulse may be forceful, floating and rapid.

    The pathological pattern associated with the formula Xiao Feng San has three primary aspects: wind-heat, dampness and blood-heat. The herbs which compose the formula therefore can be understood by dividing them into three groups.

    The first group of herbs include Jing Jie (Schizonepeta), Fang Feng (Siler root), Niu Bang Zi (Burdock seed) and Chan Tui (Cicada moulting) which disperse external wind, clear heat from the skin and relieve itching.

    The deputy herbs Cang Zhu, Tong Cao and Ku Shen (Sophora root) dry dampness and clear damp-heat. The Dui Yao pair (traditional combination) of Shi Gao (Gypsum) and Zhi Mu (Anemarrhena rhizome) clear Qi level heat which is an important consideration here in order to prevent the heat from penetrating into even deeper levels of the body which would only exacerbate the condition. Shi Gao and Zhi Mu are used together specifically because they are able to strongly clear excess heat while protecting precious fluids and Yin which may otherwise be damaged not only by the pathogenic heat but by the use of cold and drying medicinals essential to this formula. Shi Gao and Zhi Mu both clear heat from the Lung which is the Zang-Fu organ that dominates the exterior, and therefore directly influences the skin and interstices.

    The herbs Di Huang (Rehmannia root) and Dang Gui (Chinese Angelica root) cool, nourish and gently invigorate the blood which aid in extinguishing wind. Gan Cao (Licorice) clears heat, relieves toxicity and harmonizes the formula.

    Xiao Feng Pian is powerful and highly effective Traditional Chinese herbal formula for dermatological applications.

    Does research support Skin Windclear?

    Recent studies show great promise for the use of oral Xiao Feng Pian in skin conditions such as red, itchy, scaly skin rash.1 Chan Tui has been shown to have potent anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties which render it highly useful in dermatological applications.2 Ku Shen has been studied for its ability to promote healing of contact dermatitis.3

    Skin WindClear™ (Xiao Feng Pian) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 27.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Unlisted surprise I went to the website to order a different product recommended to me and was reading the various descriptions of other products. I have a very serious psoriasis outbreak on my legs from Behcet Disease (I was surprised to learn that Behcet has its own psoriasis). I purchased two bottles and started to take the herbs 3X day, 5 at a time. The region above my knees heeled very quickly, this was the mildest form of the disease and I have hopes that the terrible outbreak in the lower parts will improve in time. HOWEVER, I was shocked to find that the seborrhea that has plagued me for twenty years, especially in winter was completely gone in a matter of days. Now that was a fine bonus!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Possibly assisted in the healing of my Dermatitis Herpetiformis. I kept thinking I had follicitis or eczema, so I looked up Chinese herbs to deal with those things. I found this was recommended to deal with those issues, so I ordered a bottle. I later found out I had a gluten sensitivity and was causing a condition known as Dermatitis Herpetiformis on my scalp, and sometimes elbows. I've gone gluten free now and the issue is clearing up, although the damage to my scalp has been done already, and it takes a lot of time to heal. So as I heal I'll continue to use this product to try and reduce inflammation of my scalp so it doesn't itch as much.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful relief Having had eczema for years I hoped this could be the cure at long last. I took six tabs 3 times per day with lots of water. Oozing sores are drying up and finally going away (i am just finishing my 2nd bottle). I had tried everything only to have it return and worried as it got worse and worse. Consider getting 4-6 bottles. i'm going to take this for quite some time to make sure all the pesky lesions are gone. So pleased! Highly recommended.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not to helpful for hives I had an outbreak of hive for many months that won't go away. I took Zyrtec whenever it shows up. One dosage of Zyrtec can keep the hives away for 3, 4 days but I do not like the side effect of Zyrtec. It makes me sleepy and tired. I took Xiao Feng Pain hoping it will do the job without the side effect. I took Xiao Feng Pian and Zyrtec for a few weeks but I did not see any improvement. If I stop taking Zyrtec, the hives come back. I finally when to see my doctor. She prescribed Clarinex. Clarinex is better than Zyrtec. I still have hives outbreak but not as frequent or as serious.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked for me I had a rash on my chest that would come and go. My doctor of oriental medicine put me on 5 pills three times a day. After eating a bit differently and three bottles of this stuff it is gone and has not come back. Great formula and easy to take.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't work for me I tried product for shingles, and the bad and painful itching, took the recommended dosage, and even added an extra dose: it didn't help at all. I also thought that it might help my rosacea and spider veins on my face, but it did not help!
