A medical breakthrough in dermatological therapy for most dry skin conditions was made in the early 1990’s when a Swiss scientist, Dr. H. R. Suess, discovered and patented a process to refracture the petrolatum molecules in mineral oil. His work, augemented by that of other researchers, led to the development of skin moisturizing compounds that remove over 82% of the oily residue left on the skin by mineral oil based moisturizers, while also improving the therapeutic benefits of petrolatum. We offer the following Theraplex products:
- Theraplex ClearLotion – a light, fast penetrating emollient oil ideal for use after showering or bathing.
- Theraplex Eczema Therapy – a moisturizing skin protectant that helps relieve minor skin irritations and itching.
- Theraplex Barrier Balm – provides long lasting relief from dry skin.
