Niacinamide soothes relief of pruritus (itching) and decreases inflammation. Shea butter replenishes the hydrolipid film repairing the skin barrier, while Glycerin restore suppleness.La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water, a real wonder of nature, is a prebiotic that reduces sensitivity with its soothing, antioxidant properties due to its unique Selenium content – a mineral that protects the cellular metabolism. Fragrance-free. Paraben-free. Non-sticky & greasy. Comfortable velvety texture.
Dr Webster’s Recommendation: This innovative triple repair balm has been updated to include Microresyl and is the first balm that inhibits biofilm formation. In a new scientific finding, it was found that staphylococcal biofilm formation plays a role in aggravating Atopic Dermatitis. This new formula has been shown to inhibit this biofilm formation while also limiting staphylococci over-proliferation and rebalancing the skin microbiome – if this remains unbalanced, even if the barrier function is restored, attacks of severe dryness, irritation, and itching will continue. This balm helps to space out the flare-ups.
