When should we use what type of emulsion?

Dry, cracked, itching and stressed skin can be the result of age, too much bathing or showering or a tendency to neurodermatitis. In these cases, it is vital to protect the skin with a cream with a high lipid content (water-in-oil emulsion).

Red, hot, stinging and painful skin are classic signs of the inflammation that can occur following sunburn, mosquito bites abrasions or skin allergies, for example. In this instance, it is more important to cool the skin down to fight the ‘fire’ of the inflammation. Even in the case of a mild inflammation, it makes sense to use a cream with a high water content (oil-in-water emulsion).
