I Tried It: Meet the Magical Cream That Gets Rid of Sunburns (and Wrinkles)

I took a desk-side meeting with what I believed to be just another great anti-aging skincare company. When we sat down, I was introduced to Chuda’s founder, Elena Ocher, MD, an NYC-based neurosurgeon, anesthesiologist, and pain-management specialist. That was my first clue this product was different. A neurosurgeon? I thought. How could I not trust everything she says?

We discussed all the facts: Chuda’s Healing Hydrating Cream ($150) was created from the remedea compound with ingredients found in the mountains of Georgia—it’s a Turmanidze family secret formula of flowers and herbs that goes back a thousand years. Intrigued? I was too. Originally Ocher used the homemade blend to treat and soothe traumatized skin wounds (sunburns, windburns, etc). Now, with the help of a chemist, Ocher has combined the original compound with medical-grade ingredients to heal dry, damaged, or compromised skin in just hours. I was mesmerized by the idea but still skeptical.

She sensed my doubtfulness and immediately pulled out her cell phone. “An iPhone doesn’t lie, right?” she mused. She went on to show me time-stamped photographs of patients during their recoveries. This was the kicker: Ocher showed me photo after photo of skin wounds, burns, and blisters, and then, hours later, almost completely healed skin.
