Eczema Awareness Week is on from September 17 to 25, 2018. Eczema is the general term for a group of skin conditions that causes dry, itchy, scaly and red skin. Eczema affects one in 12 adults in Ireland, and one in five children. There is no cure for Eczema but in most cases it is manageable. Eczema is identified as areas of the skin will become very itchy, dry and also have inflamed red patches. This will generally occur on the face and body. Keeping skin hydrated is vital, and emollients are great for moisturising the skin and preventing it from drying out.
Marie Therese Burke, Head Trainer with Graham Anthony Distribution, identifies that topical emollients need to contain active ingredients to bring immediate and lasting relief to eczema, psoriasis or any atopy prone skin. Emollients are medical moisturisers that can be used several times a day. Emollients will help to restore your skin barrier, reduce the frequency of your Eczema flare-ups, and will stop irritants and allergens, which cause these flare ups.
Chronoxine is a new innovation in this field – it is an anti-inflammatory that has a soothing action that will bring immediate relief. Cerasterol-2F are Omega 3 and 6 Ceramides with Phytosterols to restructure and soothe the skin, whilst providing long-lasting relief. All of these ingredients are included in the Uriage XEMOSE range!
Uriage is the richest thermal water for Eczema and other skin irritations
The Uriage Dermatological ranges are formulated with unique patented ingredient complexes developed for specific skin conditions. Uriage XEMOSE is a treatment for anyone who suffers from eczema or other skin irritations. XEMOSE is a line of new generation emollient care for extreme and long-lasting cutaneous comfort.
XEMOSE has an anti-inflammatory effect, a restructuring, soothing effect, so relieves irritation and the desire to scratch. The range is also the ideal range to use on your skin, as the effects of the XEMOSE range will last all day, providing a nourishing and soothing feeling for users!
Products from the XEMOSE range have a triple barrier action for long-lasting relief: Cerasterol-2F Technology restores and reinforces the skin barrier, the TLR2-Regul regulates the innate immune barrier and Uriage Thermal Water re-balances the microbial barrier.
Uriage has three patented ingredients in the XEMOSE range that help against Eczema:
- The first patent is Chronoxine, which is an anti-inflammatory.
- The second patent is Cerasterol-2F Technology, which combines fatty acids, such as Omega 3 and 6, to give a restructuring soothing effect.
- The third patent is TRL 2 Regulator, which regulates the innate immune barrier.
Boasting an ultra-rich texture, the Uriage Xemose Lipid-Replenishing Anti-Irritation Cerat will intensely nourish, protect and instantly soothe itching that causes scratching due to dryness. Its formula, which contains 25% Shea butter, intensely nourishes and brings instant, long-lasting comfort. Ideal for use on the face, body and for extreme dryness.
