Some of the preperations for dry skin do not have UV protection so be careful in the sun.
I have found something called DermaSray by a company called salcura.
It is free from:- steroids, hormones, sortisones, peroxides, alcohol, parabens, antibiotics and is not tested on animals
It is reccommneded for: eczma, psoriasis, dermatitis, dry skin and itchy skin.
it is expensive, but after all the lotions and potions from the GP including specially mixed creams it is the only thing that works for me, I am allergic to something in E45.
As it is a spray it does not initiate the ‘itch’ response when rubbing in creams.
As we absorb chemicals through our skin it is good to know that it is gluten, nut, soya and dairy free.
Basically its a complex formula of naturally occuring plant oils
