Even though in winter our feet are wrapped up in socks and boots, we still need to look after them and treat them.
The advice regarding Aqueous Cream has now changed. It should be used as an emollient wash rather than a moisturising cream. Our alternative product is Flexitol Moisturising Cream.
There is nothing worse than having sore, cracked heels when we have such busy lives. A ten-minute daily foot care routine can help you resolve this. Central heating can be very drying, so it is even more important to moisturise the skin.
Aqueous cream relieves the symptoms of dry skin conditions and can be used instead of soap to wash the skin.
The skin dries out when too much water evaporates from its surface. This increases as we get older, and is made worse by washing because hot water and soap remove the layer of natural oil on the skin surface.
Aqueous cream is a light, non-greasy moisturiser made from a mixture of emulsifying ointment (which contains emulsifying wax, liquid paraffin and white soft paraffin) and water, with phenoxyethanol as an antimicrobial preservative. When you use it instead of soap it cleanses the skin but leaves behind a layer of oil on the skin surface that prevents water evaporating from the skin and stops it drying out.
Adults, the elderly and children: apply to the affected area of skin as required.
It is recommended NOT to use between the toes.
