Simple has recently launched the Derma Intensive Relief range, which is formulated to suit those with skin conditions such as eczema and dermatitis. Today I am featuring two of the products from the range.
The Derma Intensive Relief Lotion has a rich creamy lotion consistency. It is slightly difficult to spread across the skin, but, once it sinks in, the skin feels moisturized and nourished. The moisture is long-lasting.
Some of the moisturizing ingredients that this product contains are isopropyl myristate, petrolatum, paraffinum liquidum, glyceryl stearate, and cetyl alcohol.
The product also contains canola oil, which, according to Paula Begoun, has barrier-repair and anti-inflammatory properties. It seems to be an ideal ingredient to be included in a product designed for those with skin conditions.
The Derma Intensive Relief Cream has a very emollient creamy consistency. It can be on the greasy side for some people, but it does work well for areas that require extra emolliency. I also find that it can work relatively well as a hand cream.
Some of the moisturizing ingredients that this product contains are petrolatum, paraffinum liquidum, cetyl alcohol, and glyceryl stearate. Like the Lotion above, it contains canola oil.
Both products are free from alcohol or fragrance. Also, they don’t contain fragrant plant oils, many of which can irritate the skin.
The two products contain parabens.
Even though the two products are marketed towards those with sensitive skin and those with skin conditions, the uncomplicated formulae of the products can benefit many others. The Lotion should suit those with normal-to-dry, dry, or very dry skin. The Cream should work well for those with very dry skin. It can also work well for dry patches in colder months, regardless of skin types.
The Simple Derma Intensive Relief range also includes Shower Cream and Hand Cream.
