Naturally the haruan extract is rich in amino acids, it contains 17 types of amino acids which include essential amino acids such as Aspartic acid, Glutamic, Glycine, Leucine, Isoleucine and Histidine (Mat Jais, et al., 1994). It is also rich in fatty acids such as Omega-3 and Omega-6 Arachidonic acid (Mat Jais, et al., 1994; Zuraini, et al., 2006; Che Ku Dahlan, 2010). In addition, the extract is also rich in minerals & anti-oxidants (Che Ku Dahlan, 2010).

Until now, there is no cure for eczema, and the root cause of this skin condition remains unknown, it is prevalent especially among children and the adolescent age group is on the increase. It is estimated that 3% of total population in every country globally is suffering atopic eczema.
