Emollient sprays are convenient and easy to use
Spray emollients contain lipids such as soft and liquid paraffin, and are your preferred emollient when you are in a rush and you don’t have time to wait for your cream or ointment to be absorbed.
Sprays are convenient to apply without you having to rub it into your skin. This limits pressure applied on tender and sore skin and may reduce the risk of cross-contamination.
As such, some people may find sprays to be particularly useful during periods of flare-ups. Sprays are also excellent to apply onto areas that may be hard for you to reach, and may therefore also be a good choice for elderly people or people with limited mobility.
