Description

Relivio Dry Skin Body Cream is a moisturising body cream specifically formulated for people with dry or very dry skin. This includes those who suffer from dry skin conditions such as psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, and senile xerosis.

Such conditions can cause itching and scratching that can lead to skin infections and worsening of the condition. It is usually helpful to apply an emollient daily, to moisturise and protect the affected skin areas.

This cream’s emollient properties make the skin smoother and protect it by helping to restore the skin ‘barrier’. Using patented MLE technology, the cream is able to mimic the lamellar structure of the natural skin lipids. A combination of plant-derived ceramides, fatty acids, and cholesterol, means that the cream’s structure is identical to that of the skin’s natural lipid lamellar structure.

This helps it to form an effective, natural, and lasting protective barrier that revitalises the skin's moisture levels, reducing water loss through evaporation. Rehydrating dry skin in this way helps to reduce feelings of itching, irritation, and tightness.

The cream is rich, non-greasy, not sticky, and quickly absorbed by the skin. It is suitable for all skin types.

Research & Evidence

For people with Psoriasis

HelloSkin’s experts couldn’t find any scientific data on Relivio Dry Skin Body Cream on people with psoriasis on publically available databases.

However, the product contains defensamide, which has been shown to increase the levels of anti-microbial peptides (1), potentially, having an effect on the bacterial load in psoriatic skin (2).

Furthermore, the product contains a Multi-Lamellar Emulsion system (MLE) with ceramide-9S, which is similar to normal ceramides that the skin uses to rebuild the skin (3). These ingredients among others have been tested in patients with psoriasis where they were found to have moisturising and hydrating effects (4).
