What is Balneum Plus Cream?

Balneum Plus Cream is a topical cream used to relieve the symptoms skin conditions such as psoriasis, dermatitis and eczema including dry, itchy and scaly skin.

This fast-absorbing cream helps the skin to retain moisture, restoring softness and smoothness, while also providing relief from itching. Balneum Plus Cream comes in two dosages, 100g or 500g. The cream contains lauromacrogols 3.0% w/w and urea Ph Eur 5.0% w/w as its active ingredients.

Balneum Plus Cream is suitable for use by children, adults and the elderly. However, for children, you should talk to your doctor before using this cream to treat skin conditions.

How does Balneum Plus Cream work?

Balneum Plus Cream can be used in the treatment of dry, itchy, scaly skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema.

Lack of water in the outer skin cell layer (stratum corneum) can lead to cracked, itchy, scaly skin. Using hot water and soap can make dry skin worse by removing the natural oils on the skin's surface, drying it out further.

Balneum Plus Cream contains urea, a substance found naturally in our skin. If you tend to experience bouts of eczema and psoriasis, it is likely that you have a reduced amount of this substance in your skin.

The urea in this cream penetrates the outer skin layer, re-hydrating the skin and helping it to retain water, while the moisturising base leaves a protective layer of oil on the skin's surface to prevent water from evaporating.

Lauromacrogols acts as a local anaesthetic, reducing itching, soothing and providing relief from dry skin conditions.
