The inside-out approach

If you are looking for rapid relief of symptoms and lasting moisturization for your skin, the inside-out approach is the answer. Contrary to the outside-in approach, which tackles symptoms of dry skin only partially, the inside-out approach focuses on all of the characteristics at once. This is possible by using ingredients that provide answers to every aspect of dry skin.

Bepanthen® Derma special Repair Complex contains:

  • Dexpanthenol, which works deep within the skin to repair the disrupted cell renewal process
  • Vitamin B3 to soothe itchy dry skin
  • Natural lipids including Shea Butter and Argan Oil to replace lost skin lipids
  • Glycerine to provide immediate and long-lasting moisturisation

In addition to utilising a combination of key ingredients which ensures a holistic approach to treating dry skin, Bepanthen® Derma products are free of fragrance, preservatives, soap and colorants, which can cause skin irritation. Try the inside-out approach and break the dry skin cycle!
