Balneum Plus Cream is an easily absorbed cream for the treatment of itching and dry skin with eczema, scaling conditions, and dermatitis. It has a soothing and softening effect on the skin. It helps prevent the loss of moisture. The cream contains lauromacrogols, which is effective in relieving itching. It also contains urea to help the skin retain water. Balneum Plus Cream is known to increase skin moisture for up to 24 hours.
People with eczema and psoriasis who have reduced amounts of urea in their skin use Balneum Plus Cream. Balneum Plus Cream helps replace the lost urea in the skin.
Dry skin results from lack of water in the stratum corneum, the outer layer of the skin cells. The dehydration of this layer results in the loss of flexibility, leading to the cracking of the skin, formation of scales, and itchiness.
The stratum corneum has natural substances that hold water, including urea, which prevents water from seeping up from the deep layers of the skin. Water is typically retained in the stratum corneum with the help of the sebum, a surface film of natural oil and skin cells that slow down the evaporation of water from the skin surface. Dry skin gets worse by washing with hot water and soap, which remove the natural oil from the skin surface.
Balneum Plus Cream contains urea that penetrates the stratum corneum to help absorb and retain water. This allows the skin to hold moisture and to rehydrate the skin. The cream has a moisturizing base that provides layers of oil on the skin surface, preventing the water from evaporating from the skin surface. Balneum Plus Cream soothes and softens the skin, reduce scaling and itching of the dry skin conditions such as ichthyosis and eczema. The lauromacrogols in the cream have anaesthetic properties that help in relieving itchy skin.
