Vanicream Moisturizing Skin Cream – Look at the label

Vanicream is an elegantly simple formula that is particularly well suited for sensitive skin. Why? Let’s look at the label…

This product only contains a few ingredients that are relatively inert and it doesn’t contain the usual suspects that can irritate skin such as anionic surfactants and fragrance. It’s even free of “typical” preservatives such as parabens and Methylisothiazolinone, instead it uses a combination of sorbic acid and BHT. If the product was packaged in an open mouth jar I’d be worried these preservatives aren’t robust enough to protect it from the microbes introduced when you dip your fingers into the product. Fortunately it’s packaged with a pump dispenser which provides some added protection against contamination.

The moisturizing ingredients are petrolatum, which provides an effective barrier to moisture loss, and sorbitol, which is a humectant that will help bind water to the skin.
