Oil/water emulsion cream with γ-linolenic acid (essential constituent of evening primrose oil) for the care of dry, very dry and slightly irritated skin. It is estimated that 15-20% of the population suffer from dry skin. The symptoms range from a feeling of tightness and roughness of the skin to flaking, itching, irritating and discomfort, the extreme form of this chain reaction.
The Natural Skin Barrier: In generally biological term, natural skin barrier of human body acts as a natural built defensive system to hurdle up the foreign allergens, bacteria and viruses free from entering the superficial parts of human body.
The natural skin barrier is mostly impaired by the causes of chemical compound contacts like detergent or long-term application of corticosteroid creams and one common condition is skin dryness.
The Causes of Dry Skin: A chief cause of dry, cracked skin is often a deficiency of the body's own substances which bind water into the epidermis. In addition, fat metabolism may be disturbed, so that a smaller amount of water can also be more easily evaporated. Tests have shown that when the skin is dry, a deficiency of certain lipid acids can often be detected in the body. One fatty acid in particular is of importance to the health of the skin, γ-linolenic acid.
This is an omega-6 fatty acid, which not only promotes regeneration of the skin but is also involved in the production and function of the skin barrier. Normally, it is produced in the body with the help of an enzyme of linolenic acid, but can also be added to the body by means of external treatments.
The Importance of Skin Care: Regular care of dry skin is crucial in order to restore and maintain the natural skin barrier function. This should supply the skin with what it is lacking.
In principle, a dry skin should be treated twice daily (eg, in the morning and evening).
Properties of Welsan Lipocream Light: Welsan Lipocream Light contains valuable evening primrose oil, which has a high content of γ-linolenic acid as well as vitamin E.
Due to its low lipid proportion (lipid content 35%), it is particularly suitable for the skin with slight lipid deficiency and for the warmer summer months.
Welsan Lipocream Light protects the skin in particular from drying off and thus has an emollient and moisturising action.
Valuable vitamin E neutralizes the aggressive free radicals in the skin and is therefore, a cell protecting antioxidant.
Welsan Lipocream Light is thus recommended in particular as a preventive skin care for dry and very dry skin and can be used as base for the preparation of corticosteroid creams.
Recommended for basic care of dry skin with slight lipid requirement and for the warmer summer months.
Preventive care of skin dehydration. (Since the change to dryness and later becoming more severe generally affects the whole skin, skin care products should be applied as a preventive over the whole body, if possible twice daily.)
Protects the skin against oxidative processes triggered by environmental agents.
As base for the preparation of corticosteroid creams.
Apply sparingly to the skin twice daily, more often if necessary.
Not recommended to pack in plastic containers because of the instability of the evening primrose oil.
Keep at room temperature.
