Hydromol Intensive is an emollient used to treat dry, scaly skin conditions. The cream helps to soften and moisturise your skin. Hydromol Intensive Cream Hydromol Intensive contains urea, which is the skin’s natural moisturiser that is found naturally in the stratum corneum and helps the skin retain its moisture. How Hydromol Intensive Cream Works? Dry skin is caused by a lack of water in the outer layer of skin cells (stratum corneum) which form the top layer of skin. When this layer becomes dry, it becomes cracked, scaly and itchy. The skin dries out when too much water has evaporated from the surface. This increases as we get older and is made worse from washing with certain soaps. Hydromol’s formula also contains sebum and soft white paraffin, natural oil that slows down the evaporation of water from the skin’s surface, locking in the moisture and preventing the skin from drying quickly. This will also reduce irritation while restoring your skin’s suppleness and improving its appearance.
