When the top layer of your skin doesn’t contain enough water, it dries out. This causes skin to crack and flake, leaving open spaces between the cells in your skin. Emollients fill those spaces with fatty substances, called lipids, which make your skin smoother and softer.
Emollients that contain a lot of oil are also occlusive agents. This means they coat your skin with a thin oily film that seals the water in your skin and keep it hydrated longer. Emollients are best applied on damp skin.
Silky Soft Emollient Cream was formulated with select ingredients helpful in repairing the skin barrier, combating water loss and increasing hydration of the skin, replenishing the skin's natural oils, and deeply moisturizing to heal/prevent issues such as dry, itchy, red, cracked, irritated skin.
