Petty spurge - Euphorbia peplus

Petty spurge - Euphorbia peplus .This may be a good product but this company (Peplin) is not very smart to try for FDA approval..First the FDA does not like natural cures for skin cancer...Second
Dermatologist do not like thigs that cut into their racket huu I mean proffession...Marketing this like Sunspot cream would be alot smarter...

Reading about milkweed reminds me of the Chickweed Healing Salve that I tried a few years ago. The lesion on my nose reacted pretty strongly and started bleeding, as it had done with baking soda, so I backed off from using it.

I don't know if chickweed is similar to milkweed or not. I have seen chickweed listed in some of the other products described on this forum, but in CHS, chickweed is considered the main (active) ingredient. You can still find it on the Internet, and apparently it is still available from CHS Laboratories in Houston, TX.

At the time I was ordering the CHS (some years ago), I spoke to a very enthusiastic guy who told me chickweed was used as a natural remedy for skin disorders by some group of people maybe a Native American tribe I don't remember. At that time, he had a website with lots of testimonials regarding skin cancer, but he told me he was being warned by the FDA not to make cancer claims. I can't find his site any more, just this one: http://osdir.com/ml/printing.a2ps.devel/2002-05/msg00021.html

Good info...I am almost sure Milkweed and Chickweed are not the same weed after having a look into this...But then again I am not a plant expert....

I've just come across your interesting site and want to clear up a couple of points.....
Milkweed and chickweed are definitely distinct plants.
Milkweed or spurge needs to be used with great care. The sap is effective but must be applied very carefully to affected parts only. On healthy skin it can cause burns and blisters, get it in your eyes and it could blind you. On the whole I would say it's too risky for amateur use.
Chickweed and comfrey together are great healers for many skin conditions and are reputed even to heal cancers. Comfrey (constituents similar to aloe vera) fine to use any time, but chickweed should really be FRESH. Drying causes it to lose much of its efficacy.
Pound up 2 parts fresh chickweed to 1 part comfrey, simmer in pure water (i.e. not chlorinated or fluoridated!), enough to cover, for 20 minutes, strain and then simmer down to a thick liquid.
Stir into a good cream that's free from SLS, parabens, benzoates, and similar nasties, until you get a deep grey-green coloration. It's now ready for use as required, but store in a cool place and it should last a year at least.
