Urea Based Moisturizer?

by Charmaine Jensen
(Ajax Ontario Canada)

I have a vascular condition and I am suppose to use moisturizer on my legs regularly to keep them hydrated, I really have not been doing as I should the past 3 years.

This has been recommended to me by a nurse that I know.

Can you give your thoughts on this cream?

"EUCERIN CREME in a jar"

Please help?

Thank you. Charmaine

Hello Charmaine,

You are very welcome as it is heart felt privilege to help! As far as our products lasting I can tell you that all of our products are formulated to be rich and thick and so a little goes a long way. Another fact is that our creams penetrate all of the layers of skin so nothing is wasted sitting on top of the skin.

When you are ready to order please feel free to contact me at Aim2Health@aol.com and I will personally provide you with a special discount coupon code to help you with expenses.

Please keep me posted Charmaine.

Warm Regards,

Thank you Nanette!

Thank you for letting me know all the ingredients that are harmful in the Eucerin cream. As for the cream you are recommending from your website. I see that it is 7oz. I need to use on both my legs from my knee down to my ankle and mostly in the evenings and so 7oz would not go very far. I would be purchasing it a few times per month and am on a limited budget.

Really do appreciate your recommendation and trying to help me out here.

Hello Charmaine,

When you have a vascular condition it is always recommended that you thoroughly moisturize your skin on a daily basis to keep it hydrated. You referred to a cream called "Eucerin" and you asked about my thoughts on it. First let me show you and our viewers the ingredients contained in this product:

EUCERIN CREAM: Water, Petrolatum, Mineral Oil, Ceresin, Lanolin Alcohol, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Methylisothiazolinone.

Now here is what you need to know about the top ingredients in this product called petrolatum and mineral oil!

PETROLEUM: is a crude oil found beneath the ground and refined to produce fuels including gasoline, kerosene, and diesel oil. When it is added to beauty products (primarily as a cheap filler), it makes that product comedogenic since it coats the skin and clogs the pores and does not, therefore allow moisture in. Because of this, petroleum can cause acne, irritation, dandruff and skin dryness.

MINERAL OIL: Also known as Parafinnum liquidum: Lubricant emollient. Also known as mineral oil this substance ultimately destroys the natural oily barrier of the skin, leading to dryness. A key ingredient in some hair shine and frizz control products. It is the worst for oily or problematic skin. Mineral oil is actually a by product in the processing of gasoline from petroleum. The molecules of the mineral oil are too large to even pass the pores of the skin and will only sit on top of your skin "sealing in" the germs and suffocating your already thirsty skin. as well as cutting off precious oxygen and preventing toxins from escaping the skin which can cause acne. Mineral oil is simply a cheap filler 80% of companies use to help increase their products regardless of the harmful effects to your skin and health.

As you can clearly see, this product is filled with cheap fillers which is why they can sell it so inexpensively. But remember the saying: "You get what you pay for". My customers from around the globe have shared with me how terribly drying Eucerin, Aquaphor and Cetaphil was to their skin over time. Please don't confuse a greasy feel which is what petroleum and mineral oil leave as "moisture" as these are two distinct terms.

My recommendation is two fold: First cleanse with our All Over Face & Body Wash which is the perfect pH for the skin and will begin the moisturizing process and follow it with an application of our My Daughter's Hand & Body TheraCream. You can apply the cream twice daily and more if needed. Our products are filled with lots of natural and organic ingredients as well as urea which is a very strong humectant.

Please keep me posted on your progress Charmaine.

Warm Regards,
