Gentle cream mousse for very high moisture needs.
Hydration in the balance
Lifestyle, environmental factors and even medical treatment can all lead to excessive loss of moisture from the skin. This dehydration can result in a variety of uncomfortable conditions: dry, scaly or cracked skin, which may become itchy or inflamed. The goal of effective treatment for these conditions is to re-balance the natural moisture content of the skin and so improve the general well-being of the patient.
Key causes of moisture deficiency
Water is the most important substance responsible for supple skin. A damaged skin barrier leads to increased transepidermal water loss (TEWL), which results in dry skin conditions. These may be caused by various factors, including:
A moisturiser containing urea can be highly successful in counteracting dryness and soothing the skin
Urea: the body’s own moisturising agent
Urea is a natural moisturising factor that helps our skin stay properly hydrated. When TEWL is increased, a urea-based product can be applied externally, binding water, re-balancing hydration and helping to restore the skin’s smoothness and elasticity. Even very dry, stressed or elderly skin can be helped in this way.
Benefits of urea
- re-balances the moisture content of the skin
- makes skin smooth and supple
- stabilizes the skin’s natural barrier function
- promotes regeneration of the epidermal barrier reduces itchiness
- loosens the horny outer layer of the skin
