How to use this product

To relieve skin conditions such as dermatitis, ichthyosis, eczema, nappy rash, or where dry, scaly skin is a problem, gently massage a thin layer of cream into the skin 3 times per day. Additionally, you can use this emollient cream as a pre-bathing emollient or as an alternative to soap to alleviate drying effects.
What is dry skin?
Many people have naturally dry skin, but it can also be caused by exposure to cold weather, central heating and air conditioning. Dry skin can be rough, scaly and uncomfortable, causing itchiness. To relieve this cycle it is important to use an emollient cream.
Your dry skin may also be the result of eczema, which is when your natural oils are lacking. When moisture escapes, the skin will dry and crack, allowing bacteria in. This leads to inflammation and itching, most commonly in the creases of your skin, or on your elbows and knees.
Additionally, emollient cream is effective against psoriasis, which is a chronic autoimmune skin condition and is often hereditary. It occurs due to the rapid growth of skin cells, causing plaques to form on the skin, appearing in flaky, scaly and red patches. These can be developed on any part of the body, including the scalp, hands, feet and genitals. Although there is no cure for psoriasis, the regular application of emollients will hydrate the skin and keep it more comfortable.
