The coal tar in PSORIASIN Deep Moisturizing Ointment slows down the excessive skin cell production that is the root cause of psoriasis symptoms. PSORIASIN Deep Moisturizing Ointment delivers coal tar in a base that locks in moisture for hours to help restore your skin’s appearance.
PSORIASIN Deep Moisturizing Ointment treats psoriasis symptoms where they start, to help stop the itching, flaking, redness and related discomforts associated with psoriasis. Formulated in a soothing ointment base, it penetrates the skin while the rich moisturizing ingredients help create a barrier to lock in moisture for hours – so it’s great for overnight use. Use PSORIASIN Deep Moisturizing Ointment to relieve symptoms of psoriasis and to help restore your skin to a more natural looking appearance.
