Curel is promising relief for those suffering from sensitive skin thanks to years of research into the skin condition. Company scientists discovered individuals with sensitive skin tend to have weaker skin structure than those with healthy skin. ¬†Natural lipid layers are depleted, which allows irritants to penetrate deep into the skin causing irritation, stinging and eczema flare-ups. The solution, it turns out, is a therapeutic moisturizer that contains a higher level of ceramides to strengthen skin and improve hydration and allantoin, an ingredient known to relieve skin irritation caused by soaps and detergents. ¬†The product is in stores now and retails for $9.99.
