What Foot Cream is best for Cracked Heels and Dry feet?

There are really two categories of “foot cream” on the market.   The first category are the simple moisturizers that smell nice and simply add moisture to the dry skin.   The second category are the serious Treatments, designed to heal problems like cracks and severe dryness.

Here, we are going to discuss the second category, that we will call “Therapeutic” foot and heel creams.   This category has TWO MAIN THINGS it must accomplish to rank among the best foot and heel creams.

#1: Treat and heal the damaged, cracked and dry skin

These ingredients focus on accomplishing this task and do it WELL.

Super Sterol Liquid.  This ingredient is well documented in the treatment of dry, damaged skin.  Its use in the best hand creams and leading foot creams has it’s name easily recognizable by industry experts and informed consumers alike.  Its ablity to repair damaged tissue while rebuilding a protective layer, or “barrier layer” as it is sometimes called, makes it the perfect cornerstone to a medical grade foot cream.

Neem Oil – Neem oil is one of the most widely searched for natural ingredient.  It has so many uses the people of India call the Neem Tree, “The Village Pharmacy.”  It’s use in skin care is also well documented as it is an anti-fungal, an important and common cause of foot skin conditions.  It is also a powerful anti-inflammatory, and has proven to be highly effective in the soothing and healing of dry cracked skin.

Karanja Oil- Another all natural ingredient that is well documented in the treatment of cracked and dry heels.  Karanja oil’s primary function is to promote wound healing and its use is documented not only in foot creams, but also in the treatment of ulcers, psoriasis and dandruff.  When combined with Neem Oil, the two ingredients achieve unparalleled success.

#2: Soothe and Comfort damaged or irritated skin

Each of these ingredients has both a medical as well as aromatherapeutic reason for its inclusion in a top foot cream.

Manuka Oil – Manuka Oil is an antihistamine and it rapidly removes the itchiness, irritation or skin of dry cracked skin.  Within moments of application and pain or discomfort will be erased with the foot and heel revitalizing cream.

Eucalyptus Oil - Eucalytus Oil is well known for its cooling and revitalizing qualities.  That soothing scent that removes exhaustion and erases mental sluggishness is known to most as an anti stress treatment.  But Eucalyptus also is a highly effective antiseptic.  Eucalyptus is used in the treatment of wounds, burns, ulcerns, cuts  and abbraisions.  It provides a wonderful dualality in this foot cream.

Pepermint Oil – Known for its relaxing and rejuvenating scent as well as its use in candy, Peppermint Oil has been being used as a medical treatment for over 10 thousand years.  It contains Menthol which has a cooling, comforting sensation for the skin.   It also adds a level of pain relief to this foot cream which makes it even more exciting.

Of course there are plenty of other ingredients that are great for moisturizing and protecting skin.   Shea butter is one, for example, and aloe vera, too.
