Aquaphor Soothing Skin Balm
This water-free ointment creates the ideal environment to support the recovery process of dry, damaged or irritated skin.
Eucerin Aquaphor Soothing Skin Balm is clinically proven to accelerate skin regeneration to aid the healing of extremely dry, damaged or irritated skin.
This water-free, paraffin-based formulation helps the skin to heal faster by creating the ideal wound healing environment. It quickly generates a semi-permeable, protective barrier over the skin which maintains the natural rate of water vapour, thereby keeping the damaged skin moist to accelerate regeneration. This protective barrier also absorbs and holds the recovering skin’s natural wound healing exudates. The active ingredients Panthenol and Bisabolol are also both clinically proven to accelerate skin regeneration. It also contains Glycerin to moisturise and strengthen the skin barrier.
In addition to its effectiveness in aiding healing, it also conditions and soothes the skin, and has clinically proven efficacy in the treatment of extremely dry, chapped, cracked or irritated skin caused by a superficial dermatological treatment such as laser therapy, a chemical peel or dermabrasion. It is also recommended for skin care use in Xerosis, occupational dry skin. It is also gentle enough for use on babies, and is excellent for soothing nappy rash (diaper rash). It only has a minimal number of ingredients and is therefore well tolerated.
Eucerin Aquaphor Soothing Skin Balm is well tolerated, gentle, non-acnegenic, non-comedogenic, odourless, and free of fragrances, colourants, alcohol and preservatives that could cause irritation or contact dermatitis.

When skin is extremely dry, it is important to have products that will aid the road to repair. Skin needs a healthy amount of hydration to recover, yet too much moisture can impede regeneration.
Skin regeneration occurs best under a semi-permeable, protective barrier which maintains a natural rate of evaporation. Eucerin Aquaphor products are clinically proven to support the regeneration of skin.
