With its Neutral product line, lavera Naturkosmetik provides everyday care for dry, allergy- and eczema-prone skin. These products are consciously free from fragrances, dyes and preservatives in order to avoid further skin irritation and any potential interactions with other products in use. The objective is to prevent the skin from drying out further, to provide it with intensive nourishment and to actively support its regeneration process.
Characteristics & causes of very dry skin:
The sebaceous glands of very dry skin only function at limited capacity. As a result, the skin's natural protective barrier is no longer intact; the skin loses moisture and is more susceptible to external influences. It feels tight, raw, and can even tear. The following factors can lead to dry skin: genetic predisposition, advancing age, being underweight, air from heating systems, air conditioning systems, humidity.
Allergic or eczema-prone skin is considered a skin dysfunction. Your skin is very dry, produces too little oil and moisture, and is by nature extremely sensitive and vulnerable. Symptoms such as dry, itchy skin, rashes, or hives can be caused by food sensitivities, dust mites or animal hair.
Your body's immune reaction may be accompanied by itching, inflammation or blistering. And once you start scratching, your skin just becomes more irritated; bacteria and other microbes don't help the situation, either. Your skin starts to flake, and you develop open wounds that weep and ooze – an eczema flare-up takes a long time to subside.

These nourishing creams and lotions and the skincare formula specially developed for the Neutral product line by lavera bolster the skin's natural protective barrier (hydrolipid film) using organic oils from olives, evening primrose, organic shea butter or shorea butter. All of these compounds are rich in essential fatty acids, making them easy for the skin to absorb. Organic jojoba oil, herbal glycerin, triglycerides and organic beeswax provide moisture, while vitamin E and vitamin C add an extra layer of protection for your skin. Depending on the product, ingredients to soothe the skin may include extracts of organic sea buckthorn or liquorice root.
