The NHS says;
Emollients are moisturising treatments applied directly to the skin to soothe and hydrate it. They cover the skin with a protective film to trap in moisture. The use of emollients are to help manage dry, itchy or scaly skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis and ichthyosis.
If you or your children need to use an emollient regularly, it’s a good idea to keep some in small pots or tubes at home, school or work.
