This Daily Moisturizing Cream cream goes beyond ordinary daily lotions to relieve dryness, irritation, and itch due to eczema. NEOSPORIN® ECZEMA ESSENTIALS™ Daily Moisturizing Cream is clinically shown to restore visibly healthier skin in just 3 days and is shown to be as effective as the leading prescription skin barrier emulsion in people with mild to moderate eczema with twice daily (or as-needed) use. It has also received the Seal of Acceptance from the National Eczema Association.
The Daily Moisturizing Cream is gentle enough for daily use.
The Daily Moisturizing Cream contains colloidal oatmeal, which has been used throughout history on the skin. Colloidal oatmeal is the powder from the grinding and processing of whole oat grain.
The FDA has classified colloidal oatmeal as a safe and effective skin protectant active ingredient to temporarily protect and help relieve minor skin irritation and itching due to eczema and rashes. A skin protectant temporarily protects injured or exposed skin from irritating environmental factors, and may help provide relief to the skin. Colloidal oatmeal qualifies as a skin protectant active ingredient because of its barrier-like properties, with good spreading and clinging properties necessary for continued protection.

Glycerin is a sugar alcohol obtained from natural sources that helps the skin retain water to improve hydration, which is essential for healthy looking skin.
Panthenol is a derivative of vitamin B which improves skin hydration, reduces water loss, and retains skin softness and elasticity.
Dimethicone acts as a lubricant on the skin surface, which gives the skin a soft and smooth appearance. It helps provide an even application and leaves a non-sticky, silky feel after application.
Mineral Oil is a skin conditioning agent that slows the loss of water from the skin's surface and increases the skin’s hydration (water content).
Isopropyl Palmitate acts as a lubricant on the skin’s surface, delivering a soft and smooth appearance
Isopropyl Myristate functions as a skin conditioning agent, which provides lubrication on the skin surface to give a soft and smooth appearance.
Tryglicerides are naturally found in the skin, and have been shown to increase skin moisturization.
Glyceryl Oleate is a skin conditioning agent.
Squalane is a natural oil: a mixture of lipids produced by glands in the skin. In the NEOSPORIN® ESSENTIALS™ line, Squalane functions as a moisturizer.

Ceramides are essential lipids naturally found within the skin, which play a key role in enhancing and restoring the skin’s protective function.
Ceteareth-6 and Stearyl alcohol are waxy alcohols added to help form and thicken a cream.
Cetyl alcohol is an emulsifying wax made by combining fatty alcohols derived from vegetable sources added to help thicken a cream.
Humectants are ingredients intended to increase water content in the top layers of the skin.
Emollients remain on the skin surface and act as lubricants. They also improve ease of application and appearance of the cream or lotion.
Lipids comprise a wide range of ingredients found in nature. When Lipids are used as cosmetic ingredients, they slow the evaporation of water from the skin surface. This results in increased water content for healthier looking skin.
