Sorbolene is an ingredient used in many moisturizing creams manufactured by many companies. Regardless of the brand, the chemical composition of this ingredient remains the same, so most moisturizing creams are developed using its composition to moisturize the skin. Sorbolene-based moisturizing creams may also contain paraffin, purified water and glycerin. The chemical itself is odorless and non-irritating.
Most skin experts recommend sorbolene to treat dry and cracked skin. The cream can effectively treat skin damaged by pollutants, sun, heat and chemicals. It can act as a barrier between the skin and allergens, preventing the skin from losing moisture and shine due to irritants. Its moisturizing properties help the skin stay fresh and hydrated for longer.
The combination of paraffin and mineral oils present in Sorbolene softens the skin and leaves it feeling silky, smooth and clean. The soothing nature of the cream makes it a preferred hand moisturizing lotion. The best part about this product is that you don’t need to use the cream every few hours as the moisturizing effect of the cream lasts very long.
The oil content in Sorbolene is quite high and therefore it is not absorbed by the skin as quickly as other moisturizing lotions. With regular use of the cream, hands and body feel smooth and radiant. It works wonders on extremely dry or chapped skin. You can apply the lotion at night after bathing and keep it all night to keep your hands soft and smooth.
Despite the chemical’s various benefits, scientific studies and tests have often cast doubt on its safety. It is claimed that the composition of the cream causes irritation. Some research also shows that frequent use of the chemical can harm the body’s natural ability to fight the effects of irritants. However, these scientific tests could not prove the claims.
Although some studies put a question mark about its reliability, thousands of people continue to use this chemical. In fact, most dermatologists still recommend it for sensitive skin. It is also recommended for eczema patients to treat the condition effectively. The cream is also prescribed for babies with soft skin to keep moisture intact.
This chemical is also used as a soap substitute, as it is not as harsh as soaps and does not cause irritation. With ingredients like glycerin and the presence of soothing agents that eliminate the itching associated with dry skin, sorbolene cream has now become part of a few people’s daily skincare routines.
