Dermatonics Once Heel Balm is specially formulated for once-a-day use on dry skin on the heels and feet. It is suitable for rough and cracked skin and is an effective way for diabetics to treat calloused skin on the feet.
The rich moisturising effect of the balm is due mainly to its 25% urea content. Urea is a humectant that occurs naturally in the upper skin layers.
Urea helps to draw moisture to the skin and maintain good hydration levels. These are diminished in people with dry skin conditions and this balm can help replenish them and restore natural health to the skin.
The urea works in combination with glycerin, another humectant; petrolatum, which is a well- established and widely used emollient; and lanolin, which is also well-known to increase moisture levels in the skin.
Dermatonics Once Heel Balm can produce smoother, more hydrated skin in as little as 1-3 days. It is free of many common irritants and artificial colorants, which may irritate some skin. The perfume it contains is hypo-allergenic.
The Dermatonics range also includes Dry Skin Balm, Heel Balm Mint, and Hand Balm, all available here.
