Flexitol Hand Balm is a moisturising hand cream formulated for the relief from symptoms of dry skin.
Its long list of ingredients includes vitamin E and 10% urea, which help the upper layers of the skin attract and retain more moisture, to become more hydrated.
Vitamin E is a natural antioxidant that helps protect against sun damage and free radicals. Urea improves water uptake from the deeper layers of skin cells to the upper layers; although it occurs naturally in the body, skin damaged by a dry skin condition will usually have lower levels than healthy skin. This can worsen the dryness and lead to flaky skin.
Regular use will increase moisture levels and generally lead to softer hands and soothing of symptoms associated with dry skin.
