Research & Evidence

For people with Psoriasis

The HelloSkin experts have not been able to find any scientific data on the use of Zerocream on psoriasis. Nonetheless, the product contains liquid paraffin and soft white paraffin, which help limit the evaporation of water from the skin surface. In psoriatic lesions water evaporation is increased compared with in healthy skin (1).
