A Multi-purpose Dermatological Lotion

My family have been using E45 Creams and Lotions for many years now. It is a multi-purpose dermatological cream formulated to treat and soothe many different skin conditions. From basic dry skin to conditions such as psoriasis and eczema, E45 is gentle and effective in managing a variety of skin conditions.

My latest discovery is its use as a massage lotion following my recent knee surgery

E45 traditional emolient formula can be bought as cream or lotion in different sized bottles, with or without pump dispensers. In this lens I will tell you about some of the many uses for E45 creams and lotions, I'm sure everyone will find at least one way in which E45 will be useful to them today.


What is Dermatological E45?

Dermatalogical E45 is a range of products for the treatment of a variety of skin conditions, from mild dry skin to more serious conditions such as psoriasis or eczema. E45 works by replacing the skins natural oils and building up a protective barrier to help maintain moisture levels.

E45 Emolients are available as creams for more concentrated area treatment or lotions for all over body use. The products are perfume free and hypoallergenic so suitable for all skin types including those with sensitive skin. The lotion is particularly light and is absorbed easily into skin, for use on a daily basis.

Both E45 Cream and E45 Lotion are available in different quantities, so you can choose a convenient portable size or a larger one to last longer and cost less in the long run. You can even choose from tubes, pots, bottles or pump dispenser containers, to suit your needs.


Who are E45 Creams and Lotions for?

E45 Lotion for my Knee Injury

Last November I fell and broke my knee. My whole leg was in a splint for 6 weeks and during that time the skin on my foot became dry and crumbly from not being used (and not being able to soak in the bathtub for way too long! Yuk). I tried various products to relieve the dry skins (foot soaks, skin remover etc) but all they did was make my skin sore and even more flaky. So we tried E45 lotion for a relaxing foot massage and it worked brilliantly!

E45 Foot Massage - An Essential Part of my Injury Rehabilitation


And then when the splint came off .... more yukky skin to deal with, dry skin galore ... (decides against putting a photo to illustrate this one!)

Then the physio therapy to get my knee to bend again started. Ouch! But once again, E45 came to the rescue, as a massage lotion. Firstly, my physio recommended used E45 to massage the scar tissue to stop it from hardening and to keep the skin supple so that it would stretch more easily. Secondly, I needed to massage the joint and mobilise my patella to loosen internal adhesions, encourage my joint to move and to soothe the pain when physio got a bit much.

My lens Dealing with a Broken Kneecap has more information and a video about massaging the knee for help with injury rehab.
