An important message from Express Chemist

Please note that we are receiving a particularly high volume of orders, enquiries, telephone calls and emails. With a depleted team we are working exceptionally hard to process orders and respond to customer enquiries.

Please also note that postal services and couriers are experiencing similar challenges so please allow longer delivery times than usual. We would be grateful if you can be patient and not contact us regarding your order before these times are up so we can reduce the pressure on our customer service team.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Astral has been manufacturing it's famous moisturising cream for over 50 year's. The cream is specially formulated for mature skin and can be used all over the body. As we get older our skin needs different care, more nourishment and protection. Astral is a rich and intensely moisturising cream with a simple formula.

The ingredients haven't changed since 1950 because they work so well, that's why every pot says "Original Astral All Over Moisturiser". The two active ingredients are simple yet effective:
  • Glycerin - Attracts water into the epidermis, increasing its moisture content. It's thought of as having a Natural Moisturising Factor for smoother-looking skin.

  • Lanolin - Is a rich natural moisturiser which binds water to itself, locking moisture in while still allowing the skin to breathe. It's naturally hypoallergenic and easily absorbed.
Astral is ideal for chapped winter skin and dehydrated summer skin. It can be used on the elbows, knees, feet, hands and anywhere else you need to apply it to. The formula replaces lost moisture and creates a protective barrier. Even those who suffer from very dry skin can find relief by using Astral.
