Starflower Sensitive Dry Skin Cream
Quick moisturising relief from dry, irritated, itchy skin
- Moisturises and soothes dry, itchy skin
- Cools and calms hot, reddened, irritated skin
- Used as an extremely gentle, non-irritating moisturiser by people with sensitive skin (such as those prone to eczema and dermatitis)
- Popular with hairdressers, mechanics, nurses and other people exposed to drying, irritating chemicals in their work or constant hand washing
- High in natural gamma-linoleic fatty acid (GLA) needed for healthy skin
One of our bestselling emollient creams, Starflower Cream is moisturising and calming. Contains natural, active herbal extracts like Borage seed oil, naturally high in GLA, an important Omega-6 fatty acid needed for healthy skin cell walls. Without GLA, your skin cells can't keep enough moisture in - resulting in dry, itchy skin. Borage oil penetrates the skin, delivering GLA benefits directly to your skin cells, helping your skin to stay moisturised and healthy.
Apply as often as required to dry areas.
For people with dry itchy skin, such as those with dry skin that is prone to eczema or dermatitis.
