How does Balneum Cream work?

Balneum Cream is a topical treatment for various dry skin conditions, including eczema and dermatitis.

The cream contains two active ingredients, urea and ceramide. Urea works in three different ways to improve dry skin. Firstly, it hydrates the skin; it also removes dead skin cells (which are known as keratolytic) and helps to relieve any itching you may be experiencing.

Ceramide works to build up the skin's barrier function.

What are the benefits of using Balneum Cream?

Balneum Cream has been tested extensively, which has shown that even after short-term use, a person's skin will stay hydrated for up to four times longer compared to using other products. The ceramide contained in this cream helps to significantly build up the skin's barrier function, helping to alleviate dry skin.

This cream has no fragrance, artificial colours or preservatives; this means that it is perfectly suitable for people who suffer from sensitive or delicate skin.

Balneum cream is particularly effective at keeping the skin hydrated when you apply it after having a bath or shower.

It can be used by adults, children and the elderly.
