E45 Emollient Wash Cream is a mild, creamy formula designed to rehydrate dry skin and help it retain its natural moisturising properties.
It usually replaces standard soaps, shower gels, and cleansers, which often contain chemicals that can be particularly harsh on dry, flaky, sore, or scaly skin. These chemicals should especially be avoided by sufferers of eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis, ichthyosis, and other dry skin conditions.
Dry skin is an outcome of a lack of moisture in the top layer of skin cells, which is exacerbated by some soaps and detergents.
E45 Emollient Wash Cream is soap and detergent-free and contains no artificial fragrances. When it cleans the skin, it does not foam, and it cleans without drying the skin out.
Its emollient properties form a protective layer on the skin that helps it to retain the body’s natural moisture, rather than it evaporating away. This leaves the skin feeling softer, smoother, and suppler, with less redness, itching, and irritation.
E45 Emollient Wash Cream is mild enough to be used by most people with dry skin, including children and the elderly.
