Dry skin is something I’ve had as long as I can remember. If you’ve ever seen any of my empties videos, you’ll know just how many body products I can get through in a short amount of time. I get it from mother’s side of the family, all of whom I can remember moisturising top to toe, every single day, without fail.

Diprobase® is something that has always been around, both in mum’s bathroom and in ours, as our children were born with the same tendency towards dry skin that I have. Ben, son no.1, is particularly affected by eczema and itchy, cracked skin, especially on his hands. When he was a baby, we would get Diprobase® on prescription from the doctor, but parents these days have no such bother – especially with the two new additions to the Diprobase family.

New Diprobase® Itch Relief and Daily Moisturising Cream are specially formulated for eczema-prone skin. Itch Relief Cream aids relief from the bothersome itch, which is usually the first sign of a flare-up, within 30 minutes. The Daily Moisturising Cream provides long-lasting moisturisation and helps to reduce dry skin flare-ups for up to 3 months*.

Who are they for?
Itch Relief Cream should be the go-to for anyone with eczema-prone skin and the Daily Moisturising Cream would be a great option for those suffering with dry skin.

What’s in them?
Diprobase® Daily Moisturising Cream is enriched with prebiotics to help stimulate the skins’s microflora and aid the strengthening of your skin’s barrier function in the process. Provitamin B5 and natural oils (olive oil, seabuckthorn oil) support the skin and prevent it from drying out. Once a skin is intensely moisturised, the skin barrier is restored, not only giving relief, but helping prevent against any potential infection.

List of ingredients for Diprobase® Daily Moisturising Cream:

What’s good about them?
Both creams absorb well, without leaving the stickiness that is sometimes to be found in heavier body products.

The Itch Relief Cream does what it says on the bottle, aids relief in 30 minutes offering soothing comfort without steroids – the ingredient that is sometimes prescribed in a cream for these skin conditions.

The Daily Moisturising Cream is a fantastic body hydrator that can be used on all skins in the family, including babies. With regular use it genuinely helps to protect skin barrier, and it leaves the skin moisturised but not ‘tacky’.

Both creams are designed to be used regularly, whilst freeing up the need for prescriptions.
