Normal skin has a barrier which prevents bacteria, viruses and fungi getting into the skin and causing tissue damage. In normal skin there are natural defence mechanisms that can repair and regenerate damaged tissue. In eczema, the natural barrier is decomposed and symptoms such as redness, irritation, itching and scaling of the skin can occur.
By hand eczema, the barrier function is decreased and the upper layers of skin are irritated. The natural processes that normally repair and regenerate the skin cannot regenerate the barrier to counteract the irritation.
What is Astion Hand Cure for?
Astion Hand Cure is used by hand eczema, which is characterised by redness, dry and irritated skin. The skin changes by hand eczema usually consist of red areas and scaly patches. Typical symptoms of hand eczema are redness and itching. Astion Hand Cure treats and soothes these symptoms. Astion Hand Cure has been tested in several clinical tests and is well tolerated.
What does Astion Hand Cure contain?
Astion Hand Cure contains the patented active ingredient Dermadexin ®, a biolipid–niacin complex. This active complex combats irritation in the outermost skin layers. Together with the other ingredients of the cream, it builds up the skin’s natural barrier by forming a thin layer of film over the irritated skin so that water is kept back in the skin layers, which increases the stability of the skin barrier. The Dermadexin® complex performs a double function on the skin—it both soothes the itching and rebuilds the skin’s natural protective barrier.
Contents: Water, liquid paraffin, cetostearyl alcohol, glycerol, niacinamide, sodium cetostearyl sulphate, glyceryl monocaprylate and benzyl alcohol.
