Aqueous Cream is a moisturising, non-greasy lotion that soothes and protects against dry or irritable skin caused by cancer treatment.
- Thick, moisturising cream that prevents water from escaping the skin's surface
- Soothes dry, itchy, painful skin during and after cancer treatment
- Non-greasy and unscented moisturiser
- Aqueous cream is easy to apply and works effectively
Patients undergoing cancer treatment often suffer from dry or irritable skin. Aqueous Cream is a non-greasy moisturiser made from a mixture of emulsifying ointment and water.
Dry skin results from a lack of water in the outer layer of skin cells. When it becomes dehydrated, skin loses its flexibility and becomes cracked, scaly and occasionally itchy. The outer layer of skin cells contains natural water-holding substances that keep water seeping up from the deeper layers of the skin, by a surface film of natural oil and broken-down skin cells, which slow down evaporation of water from the skin surface.
Moisturisers, including Aqueous Cream, are helpful for dry skin conditions - particularly eczema and dermatitis, which can get worse when the skin is given the chance to dry out. When used regularly, Aqueous Cream helps to restore the skin's smoothness, softness and flexibility by helping the skin retain moisture. Aqueous cream can even be used in place of soap when washing to prevent drying the skin.
Aqueous cream is also available in a smaller size, here.

Excellent product but make sure you get the one that suits you
I was introduced to aqueous cream by my GP about 8 years ago. Occasionally, my hands would get all flakey, sometimes to the point of bleeding. At the time, I was handling a lot of cardboard boxes and I think this may have had something to do with it. I had tried the 'oil' based creams but with no benefit. However, as repeated use of steroid cream is not recommended, my GP suggested using aqueous cream on a regular basis. It has worked a treat and all the problems are a thing of the past. It also makes my skin feel softer and generally 'better'. It is important to note that there are at least two types of aqueous cream out there. This one is odourless and it soaks in within a minute or so. The other has a slight smell to it (it reminds me of creosote I think) and it is more sticky. For me, the sticky one doesn't work - I don't like the smell for a start and it doesn't seem to have the same effect on my skin.
