Both the cream and the balm contain Cer-Omega to help replenish the skin barrier. The thick balm nourishes dry skin, whilst reducing redness and protecting the skin.

The range contains a minimal number of ingredients to minimise the risk of allergy. The gentle XeraCalm range contains three products: XeraCalm Cleansing Oil, XeraCalm Cream and XeraCalm Balm and can be used on babies, children, adults and pregnant women alike.

The newly re-packaged XeraCalm Balm, on shelves now, is the first product in the range to undergo a re-vamp to include a specially designed easy-to-use pump for more efficient use without compromising the integrity and sterility of the product.

On the Boots website, the range has received rave reviews, with many people claiming that it significantly helped improve their eczema.
