Best Skin Soothing Cream: La Roche Posay Cicaplast Baume B5

Last updated:

LRP Cicaplast Baume B5 Ingredients Info

The main purpose of the cream is to prevent trans-epidermal water loss and create a barrier for the skin with soothing and repairing properties.

The first seven ingredients in the cream all work to hydrate the skin and prevent moisture loss (trans-epidermal water loss). Panthenol, zinc gluconate, copper gluconate, and madecassoside all help to soothe and repair the skin’s barrier.

Some people may be wary of the second and third ingredients (silicones). Of course, everyone’s skin is different, so some people may not react well to silicones or other ingredients. However, silicones are actually some of the most effective skin-compatible ingredients. They act as a seal to retain moisture in the skin.

Even if a product is labeled as non-comedogenic or hypoallergenic, there is still a risk of allergy, irritation, itching, and comedones. (you can find the opinions about dimethicone, hydrogenated polyisobutene in the following pictures, and I recommend you to read and research many opinions)

How Can We Use It in Skin Care Routine?

The cream can be applied as the last step in your daily skin care routine.

It can be applied after the application of a moisturizer in the daytime or evening skin care routine, or as the last step of a skin care regimen, such as a moisturizing mask. You can apply it to your face and neck, and even around and under your eyes if you find that it is compatible with your skin.

Who Can Use It?

If you don’t experience any reactions like itching, allergies, acne, or irritation, the cream is suitable for all skin types.
