People with skin conditions such as xerosis may suffer from severely dry, scaly, cracked, or chapped skin that requires special treatment to help soothe and repair it.
Many of the common cleansers, soaps, gels, and moisturisers contain irritants that aggravate the condition, stripping oils from the skin and further dehydrating it.
Eucerin Aquaphor Soothing Skin Balm contains no alcohol, colorants, fragrance, or preservatives. It combines the restorative qualities of panthenol, bisabolol, and glycerine to moisturise, soothe, and repair damaged skin.
Panthenol is a derivative of Vitamin B5 and helps to soothe irritable skin, restoring the natural protective barrier that reduces water loss and helps the skin regenerate; glycerin is a non-toxic humectants that helps to attract and trap moisture in the skin; and bisabolol’s anti-irritant and anti-inflammatory properties are well-established in helping to regenerate the skin.
This thick ointment contains no water and is paraffin-based. It is well-tolerated and gentle-acting enough to be used on infants. It does not block the pores when applied and is non-acnegenic.
With regular use, the balm will assist the skin in trapping more moisture and reducing water loss, helping it to feel softer, smoother, and suppler. It can also help heal the skin after it has undergone laser treatment, a chemical peel, or dermabrasion.
