What we love about this product

Dry and itchy skin are common problems encountered with the menopause. When oestrogen levels drop, the skin is less able to retain moisture.  This is because the skin’s natural hydrating mechanism weakens, as the levels of ceramides, hyaluronic acid and sebum decline. A moisturiser can help alleviate dryness and itching. Regular use of a moisturiser may also protect the skin barrier and reduce irritation.

This product is a moisturising ointment that comes in a spray. It hydrates very dry, rough, or irritated skin.


An ointment is usually greasier and heavier than a cream or lotion, so it hydrates the skin even more – but it can sometimes be difficult and time-consuming to apply an ointment to large areas such as the back and legs.

The fact that this is a spray-on ointment means that it is easy to treat large areas, so it is suitable for those with very dry legs, arms, or backs. It is also a good treatment for dry feet and heels.

The spray leaves an even layer of the ointment, which can be lightly massaged in with the fingertips if needed.

Use Aquaphor healing ointment on the but avoid using near the face.
