Diprobase Cream helps to soothe, smooth and hydrate the skin and prevent moisture loss. It works by providing a layer of oil on the surface of the skin to prevent water evaporating from the skin surface. For many people with eczema, an emollient cream is the right choice. Although not as long lasting or simple as an ointment, creams are less greasy and may be more cosmetically acceptable, particularly when used during the day. Diprobase Cream has been soothing, healing and protecting the nation’s sore skin for over 25 years, and is still the most prescribed brand in primary care and the most used brand in secondary care.
