The lips are in constant contact with wind, sunlight and harsh external elements, which leave them at constant risk of dryness, irritation, cracking or chapping. Eucerin has products for dry, cracked lips, each of which has been formulated by experts to gently soothe and nurture.
Dexpanthenol is a powerful moisturiser derived from Vitamin B, and helps to nourish cracked lips and prevent unsightly chapping. Included in the Eucerin Lip Active’s formula, it works on cracked lip corners by facilitating water transfer in the skin's outermost layers and minimising transepidermal water loss, leaving lips nurtured. Dexpanthenol (sometimes known simply as Panthenol) has also been known to accelerate skin regeneration and repair, an extremely useful effect for the treatment of itchy, cracked lips. Shedding dead skin minimises the risk of swelling, redness and flaking, key symptoms of dryness that can lead to itching and irritation.
Eucerin also employs Glycerol as a means of restoring fluids and nutrients to the lips. This is a humectant, meaning it attracts and traps water in the skin, and is therefore capable of ensuring long-lasting relief from irritation and uncomfortable side effects. Eucerin bolsters the active ingredients of its lip treatment for cracked lips with a variety of minerals and anti-oxidants; these soothe and repair any damage or inflammations that may occur.
Eucerin's lip remedies are free from fragrances, colorants and alcohol, meaning they are mild enough to be used as cream and lip balm for psoriasis and other uncomfortable conditions, such as psoriasis on lips, eczema on lips and lip dermatitis.
