Dermalex Atopic Eczema Cream is designed for use by mild to moderate eczema for people over the age of six, who are looking for a treatment that contains no steroids or common irritants.
Atopic eczema (atopic dermatitis) often starts in childhood and can be triggered by many factors, including stress and environmental allergens. It usually results in dry, red, cracked skin, and itching, which can lead to infection. The patches can be common anywhere on the body, including hands, face and scalp.
This cream is formulated to relieve these symptoms AND to protect the skin from future eczema flare ups.
As well as moisturising the upper skin layers and relieving itching and dryness, it also helps to repair the skin’s natural protective barrier. The natural lipids produced by healthy skin reduce moisture loss through evaporation; this cream helps to restore these lipids in the longer term. Reviving a healthy skin system in this way protects it into the future, maintaining softness and flexibility.
It achieves this without the use of steroids or coal tar products, and also contains no common skin irritants such as fragrances, parabens, or artificial colours that are often found in dry skin treatments.
The cream is non-greasy and easily absorbed by the skin. It can be used long term and applied to large patches of eczema, including on the face. It is for use as a standalone treatment or as part of a skincare routine directed by a doctor.
This cream is suited for kids over the age of 6, therefore we also have a selection of suitable emollients and creams for babies or younger children.
