Dermol Cream Dermol Cream 500g is an antimicrobial emollient cream for use in the treatment and management of the dryness and itching (pruritus) which are common features of skin complaints like eczema and dermatitis. How Dermol Cream Work? The emollients form a barrier within the skin surface, trapping the moisture in deeper layers of skin and reducing drying. The antimicrobial ingredients combat the aggravating bacteria already present on the skin which make certain types of eczema worse. Dermol Cream is also designed to be used as a soap substitute. This is advantageous because ordinary toiletry soaps can make dry skin worse by removing its natural oils. Please note that results may vary.
