Flexitol Heel Balm is a highly concentrated and medically proven moisturising balm which hydrates dry, cracked heels.

Consisting of 25% Urea, Flexitol Heel Balm works by enhancing the water binding capacity of the stratum corneum (outer layer of skin), reducing water loss and supporting hydrotropic solubilisation.

It is also suitable for diabetic patients for whom it can help reduce the risk of diabetic ulceration.

“In the winter months, central heating, and cold temperatures can exacerbate cracked heels.  The best treatment is one that contains urea, such as Flexitol Heel Balm. It contains 25% urea and is medically proven to hydrate dry, cracked heels.”
Emma Supple, Leading Podiatrist

Treating with Heel Balm

Dry and cracked heels can be relatively simple to overcome if treated properly. Apply the balm to the effected areas once or twice daily over a 14 day period. The balm gets to work immediately and starts to show visible results after the first three days of use.

Once cracked heels have been restored, maintain rehydrated skin with Flexitol Moisturising Foot Cream. Suitable for everyday use on rough, dry skin on feet and legs.

How effective is Heel Balm?

The Magic of Urea

Urea is a major constituent of the skin's Natural Moisturising Factor, which improves hydration by increasing the water uptake from the dermis. Enhances the skin's ability to retain water, reduces water loss from the skin and improves the amount of water the skin can hold. For people whose skin lacks the natural moisturising factor, a product containing Urea can be used to replicate this hydration process.
