ALHYDRAN

ALHYDRAN

ALHYDRAN is a concentrated medical cream for the treatment and hydration of vulnerable skin immediately after wound closure. It combines the strength of freshly processed, pure aloë vera gel (Aruba Aloe barbadensis) and high-quality oils and ingredients such as jojoba oil, Vitamin E and Vitamin C. Helps to prevent scar formation and hydrates dry, sensitive and vulnerable skin.

 

 

ALHYDRAN ensures optimal hydration of the epidermis (by means of a unique combination of hydration and occlusion), and promotes healing of the skin barrier[1].
