Aquaphor Healing Ointment– Dry, cracked, damaged skin is not only uncomfortable, it can be an entry point for bacteria. Aquaphor Healing Ointment is designed to soothe and moisturize damaged skin. It’s formulated to help support the body's natural healing process, helping skin to recover faster after injury. This dermatologist-recommended ointment can be used on cracked skin, chapped lips, cuts, burns, sensitive skin, or even skin that is irritated due to laser treatment or radiation therapy.
How it Works
Aquaphor Healing Ointment works by creating a semi-occlusive barrier with the skin, a barrier that provides an ideal environment for healing by regulating the transfer of water and oxygen. Water is allowed to enter the skin, but not leave. Oxygen is permitted to enter and exit. The barrier is especially effective when addressing burns and other wounds, which tend to lose fluid Aquaphor can help to reduce fluid loss, allowing skin to stay moist so that it can heal. By regulating the exchange of water and oxygen, Aquaphor's semi-occlusive barrier can promote healing.
Simple, Smart Ingredients
All Aquaphor products are designed under the philosophy that the fewer ingredients a product contains, the less likely it is to cause irritation. Aquaphor Healing Ointment contains only seven ingredients and not a single one is a dye or artificial fragrance. The four most important ingredients are petrolatum, panthenol, glycerin, and bisabolol.
Petrolatum is a moisturizer that adds a protective coating to the skin to reduce water loss and soothe irritation. Panthenol is a derivative of Vitamin B that conditions, hydrates, and nourishes the cells that are responsible for repair. Glycerin is an intensive moisturizing agent. Bisabolol is a soothing agent derivative of Chamomile, the same plant used to make soothing teas and bath soaks.
