Description

Csrex Moisturising Cream is part of a range of products from the Csrex brand. As a stand alone product Csrex Moisturising Cream is not an active treatment for psoriasis. However, it still provides benefits as a moisturiser for people with dry skin.

The manufacturer recommends using the cream with the Csrex Management System for psoriasis, including Csrex 5% Lotion, that are formulated to work together.

The cream can be used in between uses of Csrex Lotion to reduce irritation and itching, remove scaly skin, and uphold skin moisture. It is a low-irritant moisturiser containing no coal tar, colourants or fragrance.

When Csrex Moisturising Cream is absorbed by the skin it is odourless and colourless. It can be applied according to your skin’s own needs and requirements.

Scientific Research

For people with Psoriasis

HelloSkin’s experts did not find clinical evidence of benefits of Csrex Moisturising Cream in people with psoriasis.

However, the product contains glycerin, which is a substance found naturally in the skin where it helps attract and retain water from the deeper skin layers and the air, thereby helping hydrating and moisturising the upper layers of the skin (1).

The product also contains liquid paraffin and soft paraffin, which aid in limiting water loss across the skin surface. In dry skin conditions, including psoriasis, water loss from the upper skin layer is linked to a reduced skin barrier function, which may be worsening the disease symptoms (1).

Increased loss of water across the skin is known to be a problem in psoriatic skin compared with healthy skin (2).
