What's new in emollient therapy for eczema?

Emollients hydrate and soften the skin. They provide a protective film over the skin to keep moisture in and harmful irritants out. They come in different formulations and each child needs the one that best suits their skin. Emollients are key in treating eczema.
In recent years the Irish market has benefited from the arrival of La Roche-Posay to pharmacies. Recommended by 25,000 dermatologists worldwide, they have a long established tradition of treatment in the area of atopy and eczema.
They boast the first European thermal centre exclusively dedicated to dermatology whereby patients can avail of balenotherapy using the unique La Roche-Posay thermal spring water. This spring water has therapeutic qualities and has been state approved in France since 1869.   
3,000 patients are treated at this centre every year with this thermal spring water. 1/3 of these patients are children with atopic dermatitis.
The thermal spring water is a fundamental ingredient to all La Roche-Posay products and is the only thermal spring water in the world to contain a high concentration of selenium. Its properties have been demonstrated through in vivo and in vitro studies (11 clinical studies) which show:
  • Anti-free-radical
  • Anti-irritation
  • Healing
  • Soothing and congestion relieving properties
