Ingredients of QID Cream
Every ingredient we selected to add to our cream is there for a reason, not only for its clinical benefit, but also for its proven safety profile.
- Pure filtered water – essential to add moisture back to the skin.
- Cocoa butter and shea nut butter – effective natural emollients with minimal allergenic potential. Emollients hold moisturizing water in place.
- Emu oil and Coenzyme Q-10 – both have been shown to promote healing and have powerful antioxidant properties.
- Emu oil – also has anti-inflammatory properties.
- Aloe Vera extract – has been shown to promote healing.
- Glycerin – a non-toxic substance that moisturizes, promotes skin elasticity and healing and has even been shown to have antimicrobial properties.
- Allantoin – a non-toxic and non-allergenic anti-inflammatory agent that promotes healing.
- Urea and salicylic acid – keratolytics which gently remove dry dead skin cells that prevent cream from getting down where it needs to go.
- Ozokerite wax – a naturally occurring mineral used as a stabilizer and emulsifier.
- Benzyl alcohol and phenoxyethanol – some form of preservative is absolutely necessary to keep the product fresh and free of microorganisms. These have a proven safety record and are unlikely to cause allergy.
Directions for use-simple and straight from a dermatologist:
For dry, irritated hands, feet or other rough spots on the skin: Apply QID (four times a day) or as needed for relief. Use sparingly-a little goes a long way! Once the cream has been absorbed, you can add a tiny amount of water to reactivate the lubricating sensation.
For severely cracked fingers and hands: Apply a thick layer of cream and cover with cotton gloves before bed. Repeat nightly until healed. Then use as above to prevent future cracks. Follow general skin care advice described below.
For severely cracked heels: At the end of your shower or bath rub the affected skin with a pumice stone. Dry the skin, apply a liberal quantity of cream, and put on cotton socks. Repeat nightly until cracks have healed.
General skin care advice: Use lukewarm water when you wash your hands; avoid hot water. Use sensitive skin soap. Avoid antibacterial soaps and detergents. Wear gloves when exposing your skin to chemicals or cleaning solutions. Wear warm gloves in cold weather to avoid chapping.
