Description

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.

Scientific Research

For people with Eczema

HelloSkin’s experts were unable to find clinical data on the use of Dermalex Atopic Eczema Cream in people with atopic dermatitis. However, the product contains glycerin and ceramides. In patients with atopic dermatitis, a glycerin cream compared with a glycerin free placebo was able to hydrate stratum corneum and restore barrier function during the treatment, when treated twice daily for 4 weeks (1).

Also, in young children (2-6 years) with atopic dermatitis, an emollient with glycerin and paraffin compared to its vehicle improved skin dryness and hydration and the eczema severity after 4 weeks (2). Ceramides are a family of lipids found naturally in high concentrations in the cells of the upper skin layer and are essential for the proper function of healthy skin (3). In the upper layer of atopic dermatitis skin, the level of ceramides is reduced compared with healthy skin (4, 5).

In a study of people with atopic dermatitis a ceramide containing cleanser and moisturiser was applied twice daily for 6 weeks and was shown to reduce disease severity and itching compared with before the treatment (6). In dry skin conditions, including atopic dermatitis, water loss from the upper skin layer is linked to a reduced skin barrier function, which can worsen the disease symptoms (7).
