MORE ABOUT ELETONE® CREAM
Eletone® Cream is a nonsteroidal barrier cream that is designed to protect and repair the skin in mild to moderate atopic dermatitis. Hydrolipid Technology provides a reverse-phase formulation of:
- 70% lipids dispersed in 30% water, thus providing a high lipid skin barrier. Eletone Cream is fragrance-free, non-irritating, and does not contain potentially harsh preservatives like propylene glycol. It is also completely free of ethanol and isopropyl alcohol, which are common skin allergens.
- Eletone Cream is non-greasy, and will not stain clothing.
Eletone Cream is an effective, safe, and nonirritating therapy that is useful for both the maintenance stage of atopic dermatitis and during times of flare-ups of the condition. It can be used on the face and intertriginous areas of the body, like the flexural folds or groin, without concern for steroid-associated side effects.
Eletone Cream is used between flares and to manage interim flares. Since atopic dermatitis is a chronic condition, patients need to continually moisturize their skin to reduce the amount of time the atopic dermatitis is in the flare stage. Eletone Cream is ideal for use during the maintenance stage between flares to protect and heal the skin barrier.
The flare stage usually requires the use of a topical corticosteroid to reduce the burning, itching, and redness associated with the condition. Physicians will often prescribe an emollient to use in conjunction with the topical steroid in this stage. Eletone Cream is the ideal companion to a topical corticosteroid in the flare stage.
