Description

E45 Emollient Shower Cream is a gentle, effective cleanser that is specially formulated for dry and sensitive skin.

People with dry skin conditions may make their problem worse by using standard soaps, shower gels, and cleansers containing harmful ingredients that further dry the skin out. Those with eczema, dermatitis, or other conditions may find that no amount of moisturising will help their condition if they are using the wrong daily cleanser.

E45 Emollient Shower Cream contains no harmful fragrances, soap, or detergent to irritate sensitive skin or to sap more moisture from it.

As it cleanses, the cream does not foam unlike many common soaps and cleansers. It helps the skin to retain more moisture naturally. Its emollient properties work to restore the skin’s natural protective barrier that may have become damaged.

By restoring this fine layer on the skin’s surface, it helps to trap moisture and to prevent it from evaporating away and further drying the skin out.

The result is skin that feels softer, smoother, and healthier, when the cream is used daily as part of a normal skincare routine.

Research & Evidence

For people with Psoriasis

HelloSkin’s experts were not able to find any clinical data on the benefits of E45 Emollient Shower Cream in people with psoriasis. However, the product contains glycerin which is known to be an important humectant that helps attract and bind water in the epidermis.

Also, the product contains petrolatum and liquid paraffin, which help reduce water evaporation across the skin surface. In psoriasis and other dry skin conditions, water loss across the skin is linked to a reduced barrier function, which may further worsen the condition (1).

For people with Eczema

HelloSkin’s experts were not able to find any clinical data on the benefits of E45 Emollient Shower Cream in atopic dermatitis. However, the product contains glycerin which is known to be an important humectant that helps attract and bind water in the epidermis.

E45 Emollient Shower Cream also contains petrolatum and liquid paraffin, which help reduce water evaporation across the skin surface. In atopic dermatitis and other dry skin conditions, water loss across the skin is linked to a reduced barrier function that may further worsen the condition (1).
