I have been using this moisturizing cream for my 98-year-old Mom after baths since she moved in with us 7 years ago. For her age, Mom's skin has looked healthy, and people have commented how good her overall skin looks. It wasn't until recently that I used this cream on myself and fully realized how good it is. I had contacted poison ivy, and my reaction was exceptionally bad. I broke out in a welted rash and blistered sores that itched like crazy. A Prednisone prescription from the doctor stopped the blistering, but the red welts and patches continued to spread. This spread to both arms, both legs, torso, and my face. Since most itch creams are designed to dry the oils of poison ivy, my skin all over was flaking and and felt dried an taut.
I decided to try this cream for some relief and the results were amazing. I put it on all of the dried areas, and relief was almost immediate. At first, I used it 3 times per day, and within a couple of days the redness started to go away and the dry skin was no longer dry or swollen.
After this experience, I will use this after my baths to moisturize my skin. Since it worked so well for the extreme conditions I experienced, I'm sure it would be beneficial in moisturizing my skin as well as my mother's. Since I am now 72 year's old, I should probably take care of my body skin as well as my mother's.
