Dermatonics Dry Skin Balm is for people with dry, rough skin, especially on the feet. It is suitable for use on anhydrotic and cracked skin and may be used by diabetics.
This water-based balm has a deep moisturising action that comes primarily from its 10% urea content, in combination with its liquid paraffin and glycerin content.
Urea is well-known for helping the skin maintain a healthy moisture balance. It is a humectant found naturally in the surface layer of the skin. Urea keeps the skin hydrated and protected but in people with dry skin conditions, the urea content can be greatly reduced.
With the relatively high concentration (10%) present in this balm, the skin is able to replenish moisture levels.
Glycerin also is a natural humectant that assists in the process of bettering the condition of the skin; in addition liquid paraffin is used for its' strong moisturising properties.
These ingredients are combined with shea butter and other natural ingredients to produce a balm that can be used on very dry and callused feet, as well as other parts of the body.
Dermatonics Dry Skin Balm avoids many aggravating ingredients that are commonly used in similar products, among them lanolin & artificial colorants, which can irritate skin that is dry and cracked.
The balm is suitable for adults and children over the age of 12.
Dermatonics Dry Skin Balm is part of a range of products from the same manufacturer, including Once Heel Balm, Heel Balm Mint, and Hand Balm.
