We love a multi-tasking product that provides skin-soothing and smoothing for just about every skin woe. So it's no surprise that La Roche-Posay’s Cicaplast Balm B5 has a permanent place on our beauty shelf (and a tube or two on hand in our bag and car). Featuring a gentle yet effective dermatologist-tested blend of ingredients, this hydrating therapeutic cream restores moisture to dry, chapped, chafed and cracked skin—and we never want to be without it.

Cicaplast Balm B5 is specially formulated with vitamin B5, sustainably sourced shea butter, glycerin, dimethicone, madecassoside and La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water for hydrating, soothing and nourishing skin benefits. It’s also allergy-tested, pediatrician-tested and non-comedogenic while being free of parabens and fragrance.

Best of all, it’s suitable for sensitive skin, children and babies over one week old, and those undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatments (as always, be sure to consult a medical professional before using Cicaplast Balm B5 during cancer treatment).

Ideal for dry, rough, cracked skin from head to toe, this therapeutic balm provides long-lasting, non-greasy moisture and protection against further dryness and irritation that can be applied as needed. Accepted by the National Eczema Association, it also offers instant relief for countless other skin issues—and we’ve rounded up a few of our favorites.

Calming sensitivity caused by retinol or acne treatments:Retinol and acne treatments can potentially cause dryness, redness and irritation (especially if used too often). Cicaplast Balm B5 helps restore moisture and soothe the skin to help get it back on track without clogging pores.

Diaper rash relief: In addition to soothing chafed, irritated skin, this baby-safe balm helps seal out wetness to both improve and prevent diaper rash in babies over one week old.

Replenish lip moisture: Keep a tube of Cicaplast Balm B5 in your bag, desk, nightstand or anywhere you spend a lot of time — we predict you'll start reaching for this over any other lip balm.

Dry, rough hands: Use Cicaplast Balm B5 as a hand cream to smooth and soften skin, and lock in moisture after washing.

Protection against wind and cold: Preventing dryness caused by chilly, blustery weather is as easy as applying this cream to exposed skin before stepping outdoors.

Acting as both an emollient that moisturizes dry skin and a humectant that attracts moisture to the skin, Cicaplast Balm B5 is a must for any skin type at any age.
