The majority of hand care cosmetic products are oriented to provide skin with everyday care, softening, nourishing and moisturizing. Treatment creams are a separate category of cosmetic products with a special formula, which are intended for intensive and efficient skin care, deep moisturizing, nourishing and regeneration. Compared to dermatological ointments and gels, a treating cream has much more functions. It can be used regularly to prevent skin defects, while dermatological products can be used only if medically required and for a limited period.
