If you're dealing with dry and itchy skin from treatment or burns from radiation, Aquaphor Healing Ointment is the best option for skin care.


Dry skin relief at its best! Aquaphor is a cancer patient and survivor favorite to use for radiation burns and other dry skin patches caused my cancer treatment. It's also great for minimizing scarring post surgery!

One essential solution for many skin care needs: Use as a lip moisturizer, hand cream, foot cream for dry cracked feet, minor wound care and much more.

Different from a lotion or cream, this ointment nourishes skin while creating a protective barrier that allows for the flow of oxygen to create an ideal healing environment. Sulfate free.

Extreme weather conditions and frequent exposure to water, hand soap, and hand sanitizer can cause dry cracked hands and cuticles. Use Aquaphor healing ointment over night as a hand cream for dry hands to restore moisture to enhance healing.

Preservative and fragrance free, specifically for sensitive skin and clinically proven to restore smooth, healthy skin.

Color variations occur due to the nature of the ingredients in the product, but do not affect product safety and performance. Aquaphor Healing Ointment is a white translucent to light yellow ointment.

14 ounce jar an the ideal size for the whole family!


Special Ingredients: Petrolatum

Item Form: Semisolid

Brand: Aquaphor

Nothing beats good ol' aquafor for radiation burns!! You might also need to get a prescription from your doc but this is a good place to start.

This lotion is so thick that it keeps moisture in on both scars and after radiation burns. This gets a 10/10 from me.

I was a little hesitant to try this because i'd seen in in the grocery store so many times and haven't really had a ton of luck w/ finding high quality products in the grocery store. This product was INCREDIBLE for my radiation burns, I highly recommend adding this to your Wishlist or buying outright if radiation is a part of your treatment!

I used this twice a day every day after my surgery and I can honestly say that it has truly been a big help in minimizing the scarring. The ointment keeps the area so well moisturized that I've seen a huge difference in its appearance, and also much less red as well.
