What is an emollient cream?

Difference between emollient, moisturizing and nourishing cream

In cosmetics, you will often see these three words: emollient , moisturizing and nourishing . But then, what are the strengths of each?

  • The role of an emollient is to “soften” skin tissues to make them more supple and comfortable . It will contribute to immediate soothing of the skin and can also hydrate it. The emollient is ideal for restoring balance and soothing the skin.
  • A moisturizer will provide water to the skin via active ingredients with hydrating power. To name only the best known: aloe vera and hyaluronic acid . The moisturizer will strengthen the skin's hydrolipidic film.
  • A nourishing treatment is a richer treatment which will provide fat to the skin with butters or oils rich in fatty acids . The nourishing product will provide comfort to the skin by soothing tightness and restoring suppleness.

Emollient cream is therefore the ideal cream for dry or atopic skin. In fact, it will hydrate, soften, soften and protect the skin. All these virtues will contribute to strengthening the skin barrier. This will make the skin less permeable . Allergens or other irritating agents will no longer have an impact on it, which will have the effect of limiting eczema flare-ups!

The little extra? An emollient can come in different forms: cream, balm, oil, milk and ointment. Thus, an emollient can suit all desires.
