Patagonia is proud to support Ichthyosis Awareness Month! Ichthyosis is a rare skin disease that is characterized by dry, thickened, scaling skin. With almost 30 genetic subtypes, this condition impacts the lives of individuals across the globe.
During this month, we encourage you to take the time to learn more about the disease. FIRST, the "Foundation for Ichthyosis and Related Skin Types", is an active patient advocacy group dedicated to educating, inspiring, and connecting those affected by the disorder.
