Eucerin Aquaphor Soothing Skin Balm gives dry to very dry, cracked, and irritated skin the SOS care it needs. The water-free ointment forms a gentle, semi-occlusive, protective barrier over skin that supports the natural transfer of water vapor and oxygen to and from the skin allowing the skin to ‘breathe’ and strengthen its natural protective barrier. The ointment is enriched with Glycerin and Panthenol. Glycerin is an effective moisturizer that attracts water and helps to keep it in the skin. It works alongside Panthenol which helps to speed up regeneration and repair while also moisturizing skin. Our skin works hard to protect our bodies, but sometimes it can become very dry, cracked, and irritated as a result. It needs SOS care. Fragrance- and preservative-free, Eucerin Aquaphor Soothing Skin Balm has been clinically and dermatologically proven to repair very dry, cracked, and irritated skin. The soothing, transparent ointment is easy to apply and massages gently into problem areas of skin such as the knees and elbows, cracked knuckles and cuticles, and cracked heels. With only a few ingredients, it is well tolerated by sensitive skin and is suitable for use on babies and children as well as on minor burns and on the skin after superficial dermatological procedures such as laser treatments and chemical peels. Skin is regenerated, protected, and repaired.
