Flexitol heal balm
The active ingredients in Flexitol Heel Balm are urea, petrolatum and lanolin. This product contains 25% urea that works to treat skin dryness and itching. Underlying conditions may cause these symptoms, and some of them are dermatitis, psoriasis and icthyosis. Urea as a natural substance, can be used in softening the nails. In part, as a medication, this compound works by loosening dried skin.
There are many known ways of treating and preventing cracked and dry heels. A foot soak may be helpful where the feet are kept in lukewarm and soapy water for about 20 minutes. Hard and thick skin is then removed by scrubbing with pumice, loofah or a foot scrubber. After patting the feet dry, moisturizer or a heel balm may be applied followed by spreading over petroleum jelly to lock in moisture. This foot soak process may be time-consuming, and if you want an easier and faster way to treat dry and cracked feet, you can resort to using Flexitol Heel Balm.
