Avène Cicalfate Hand Cream helps repair, nourish and protect very dry, irritated and chapped hands. The ultra-nourishing, non-sticky formula absorbs easily and forms an insulating barrier to create a “second skin” protection effect. Recommended for those with hand dryness, dermatitis, wounds or burns. Especially well-suited for those who work in industries where chemicals and other substances affect their hands.
Key ingredients include Sucralfate, a healing protective active ingredient unique to Avène, known for facilitating rapid epidermal repair. The purifying combination of Copper Sulfate and Zinc Sulphate reduces the risk of bacterial proliferation and helps to avoid secondary infections. Rich in the signature Avène Thermal Spring Water known for its soothing and anti-irritating properties.
Dr Webster’s Recommendation: This is a unique product that contains four key ingredients to repair, protect and restore skin that is compromised. I would call it a first aid kit for the hands. It brings much-needed relief to the fragile epidermis (the outer layer of the skin) when exposed to various aggressors such as chemicals and other irritating substances. It does this by forming a protective film over affected areas for optimum repair. It also helps to limit bacterial proliferation and is both soothing and calming. I would recommend this product for hairdressers, mechanics, or anyone with hand dermatitis who reacts to the substances due to their line work.
