What is E45 Cream?
E45 Cream is a dermatological cream that is designed to help treat dry skin conditions. It is a non-greasy, easily absorbed cream that is suitable for use on the body, face, and hands. E45 Cream is perfume-free, dermatologically tested, and hypoallergenic, making it suitable for sensitive skin.
What is E45 Cream used for?
E45 Cream is used to help treat and soothe dry skin conditions such as eczema, dermatitis, ichthyosis, and certain dry skin conditions that are associated with the use of certain medications. It can also be used to help soothe and hydrate skin that has been affected by exposure to the sun, wind, cold weather, and other environmental factors.
How does E45 Cream work?
E45 Cream works by creating a protective barrier on the surface of the skin, which helps to lock in moisture and prevent the skin from drying out further. The active ingredients in E45 Cream, liquid paraffin, and white soft paraffin, work together to help restore the skin’s natural moisture balance and keep it hydrated. This helps to soothe and soften the skin, reducing the discomfort and itchiness associated with dry skin conditions.
Who is E45 Cream suitable for?
E45 Cream is suitable for adults, the elderly, and children. It is suitable for use on all skin types, including sensitive skin. However, it is always recommended to perform a patch test before using E45 Cream for the first time, especially if you have particularly sensitive skin or are prone to allergic reactions.
How to apply E45 Cream
- Clean and dry the affected area before applying E45 Cream.
- Apply a small amount of E45 Cream to the affected area and gently massage it into the skin using a circular motion until it is fully absorbed.
- Repeat the application as often as required, especially after washing your hands or taking a bath or shower.
It is recommended to apply E45 Cream at least two to three times a day, or more often if required. For best results, it is important to use E45 Cream regularly and consistently to help maintain the skin’s moisture balance and prevent it from drying out further.
