Dry skin is prone to lose moisture from the surface layer, the stratum corneum, at a far greater rate than that of the average person. That's why standard moisturisers often aren't suitable for many people, including sufferers of dermatitis, eczema and psoriasis. Without constant replenishment, skin quickly becomes dry and flaky.Dermeze Ointment hydrates dry, sensitive and itchy skin for people of all ages including infants, adults and the elderly. It boosts the skin's own precious moisture with a mix of soft white paraffin and liquid paraffin to help prevent moisture evaporating. It's that simple, that gentle - and very effective.
