Aqueous cream can be applied directly to the skin or it can replace your regular soap to bathe your skin by mixing a small amount of cream with tepid water and washing the skin as normal.
What is it?
Aqueous cream is a light, non-greasy moisture barrier used for skin conditions such as; dry skin, rashes, eczema, dermatitis and psoriasis. Dry skin results from a lack of water in the outer layer of the skin. This increases when we get older and becomes worse when washing because hot water and soap removes the layer of natural oils from the skins surface. The best way to use Aqueous cream is as a soap substitute which, when used regularly, will help prevent the skin from drying out and help the skin to retain its natural moisture.
Aqueous cream can be purchased from chemists in the UK. I purchased my tub from bodycare for £1.
