Sorbolene is a non-irritating, odourless, all-purpose cream consisting mainly of purified water, paraffin and glycerin.
It is a popular moisturiser because it is inexpensive and has many uses. It is a handy alternative to soap and makes an ideal make-up remover. Being a pure moisturiser that is lipid free and non-alkaline makes sorbolene ideal for the most sensitive of skin.
Sorbolene will not treat eczema
Sorbolene will help to control the dry skin that is associated with eczema however it will not control the other symptoms of eczema – rash, redness, itchiness, inflammation.
Sorbolene often makes a great accompaniment for your treating eczema cream. However if used alone it will not control the symptoms of eczema.
Eczema treating creams
Most creams designed to treat the symptoms of eczema are not moisturisers so need to be used in conjunction with a moisturiser. Calendulis Plus Cream and Natralia Nourish Eczema & Psoriasis Cream have both been designed to treat the itchy, red, rash that is eczema, but are not moisturisers. In fact both creams are more effective when used in conjunction with a moisturiser.
Mum’s Secret is one of the few creams that both treats the symptoms of eczema and moisturises the skin at the same time.
Not all creams work for everyone
People with eczema have very sensitive skin. Many products applied to the skin will cause a skin irritation. It is important to use creams and moisturisers that suit your individual skin.
Sorbolene is free from thickeners, colourings, fragrances, parabens, lanolin and excessive preservatives, so is usually a safe moisturiser that does not irritate sensitive skin, trigger allergies or clog the skin pores.
It is often necessary to try several eczema treating creams before you find one that suits your skin and relieves the symptoms as you would like. Similarly you may have to try several moisturisers before you find one that suits your skin , locks in the moisture and keeps your skin feeling soft and supple.
Sorbolene is a non-irritating, inexpensive moisturiser that is worth a try.
