Nutraplus Crème is a fragrance-free, non-greasy and non-greasy cream for use on morbidly dry skin.
Nutraplus Lotion is a fragrance-free, easy to distribute and non-greasy emulsion for use on pathologically dry skin.
Nutraplus was specially developed for use on dry, rough and chapped skin. Nutraplus leads to the desired water absorption of the skin and promotes its regeneration. At the same time, Nutraplus makes the skin smooth and supple, soothes itching, counteracts the formation of dandruff and promotes its shedding from the skin's surface.
Nutraplus can also be used to support anti-inflammatory treatment with corticosteroids.
When should Nutraplus not be used?
Nutraplus should not be used if there is a known hypersensitivity to ingredients.
When should you be careful when using Nutraplus?
