My husband and son have extremely dry skin. They have to moisturize daily, and a lot of times, they have to moisturize several times a day. Their shirts have flakes all over them, from the dry skin flaking off. It’s kind of ridiculous! So, I thought I would have them try the Theraplex products, to see what kind of results we would see.
Theraplex sent me the Hydrolotion, Eczema Emollient, Eczema Therapy and Gentle Cleanser. The emollient is great for dry, cracked hands and feet, and it really softens them up. It only takes a tiny bit of it, so it will last a while. The hydrolotion is great for daily use on faces, to keep you moisturized. You can use it throughout the day, as needed, and it has a convenient pump dispenser.
The Eczema Therapy lotion has a great feel to it. It’s not sticky, and not super heavy, which is perfect. It definitely works, and has improved our dry skin tremendously. The skin cleanser is super gentle, and didn’t irritate our skin at all! It gives a nice lather, and really cleans well.
Overall, Theraplex is a great product! It does what it says, and leaves your skin feeling moisturized!
In 1990, a Swiss research scientist, Dr. H.R. Suess, developed and patented a process which eliminated over 80% of the greasy oils and all of the contaminants found in petrolatum. This resulted in an enriched special petrolatum fraction (ESPF) which retained all of the superior moisturization and protective properties of petrolatum without the greasiness, tackiness, and inability to penetrate the skin.
Dr. Suess joined with noted U.S. research scientist, Dr. Eugene Gans, to combine his ESPF with a novel hydrosilicone delivery system to create the Theraplex line of moisturizers. These moisturizers, with their hydrosilicone delivery system and ESPF, have the unique ability to penetrate deep into the cracks and fissures of the skin to provide moisture where it is needed most. This special delivery system helps Theraplex provide a virtually greaseless and durable micro-protection barrier which:
- Seals the skin to stop excessive moisture loss;
- Increases internal moisture and softness;
- Increases the flexibility and suppleness of the skin;
- Protects against physical and environmental irritants; and
- Stimulates the formulation of essential lipids that surround and protect skin cells.
Almost as important as what is in Theraplex moisturizers is what is not in them. Designed for sensitive skin, they utilize simple formulas which do not contain added ingredients, such as preservatives, parabens, lanolin, fragrances, or gluten, that can irritate sensitive skin and compromise therapeutic treatments. Clinical studies have shown that Theraplex stops and prevents the vicious cycle of persistent dry skin by delivering moisture deep into the skin barrier and creating a protective barrier to lock in essential moisture and to prevent future moisture loss for hours. Given the superior moisturization, hypoallergenic nature, and clinical results of Theraplex products, dermatologists have been using and recommending them to their patients for over 20 years.
