Emulsifying Ointment is a moisturiser that helps to prevent skin from drying out and help to manage dry skin conditions such as eczema and dermatitis. Emulsifying Ointment This ointment is a moisturiser that will help to prevent your skin from drying out, and can also help to treat severe cases of dry skin including Eczema and Dermatitis. How Does Emulsifying Ointment Works? Each tub contains a mixture of paraffin oils and wax which stops water from evaporating from the skin’s surface, the main cause of dry skin. Dry Skin occurs when the outer layer of skin cells do not retain as much water as they should do, effectively allowing the skin to become dehydrated. When this happens, the skin becomes cracked and flaky, and can sometimes cause itchiness, an uncomfortable and sometimes consuming side effect. The likelihood of suffering from dry skin is made worse from excessive washing and bathing as this removes the layer of natural oils that are found on the skin’s surface. Once you have started to use this product regularly, you should start to see your skin become smoother, softer and more flexible due to the increase in moisture that your skin will be retaining. A 6 pack option is available in this item.
