This CPAP Moisture Therapy Cream has been designed specifically for the CPAP/APAP/BIPAP/Ventilator and Oxygen Mask Users as it contains NO Petroleum Based Ingredients, which should NEVER be used with the masks. It is also free from alcohol which damages the mask cushions!
The cream helps prevent and heal skin problems such as chafing, irritation, dryness, soreness or cracking from using a nasal or full face mask, and can be used WITH the mask and applied to the areas where the mask meets the face. Many people who previously used night cream now use this instead to keep their skin moisturised!
For nasal pillows the cream can be applied to the outside and inside of the nostrils before inserting the pillows. The cream can be used as often as needed to form a resilient moisture protective barrier, and many users are reporting their masks seal better after applying the cream to the area where the seal meets the face, which is possibly due to the cream's thick consistency.
For any mask sores it is also advisable to apply the cream several times a day until the skin has healed, and then continue use at night with the mask to prevent a flare-up. Incidentally, the cream has other uses for skin issues and many people keep a tube in the medicine cabinet for general use!
Below is a genuine image a parent sent us after just a day or so of using the cream, and she has kindly given us permission to share this to help others:-
Each 1 oz Tube contains Aloe Vera, Emu Oil and Vitamins, and a tube of this cream does appear to go a long way with most people.
DO NOT use any Petroleum-based products on your masks, such as Vaseline or Vicks, as apart from damaging the masks there is a risk that sometimes inhaling fat-based substances (lipoids) like petroleum jelly or mineral oil for prolonged periods can cause lung problems - in particular Lipid Pneumonia!
I suffer with dry skin quite badly so when I learned I couldn't use my normal moisturizer before bed like I used to because of my mask I was worried, but this cream has stopped it being an issue. It's also helped with leaks too. Just wish the tube was bigger!

This review has not been appraised.
I only use it when my mask makes red marks or indentations and it has really made a difference from the first time of using
Was recommend to me by Sleep Clinic and would highly recommend, my nose is no longer sore
Advised by GP to use petroleum jelly!! Now realise his advice in this respect to be unsound. Easily applied and effective.
Glad you're finding the cream helpful Anne and definitely safer than anything containing petroleum jelly.

Having used a CPAP machine for nearly 6 months with little trouble for the last 6 months itís been one issue after another. Iíve now changed to APAP but my mask is now causing severe redness to my nasal bridge to skin that is already super sensitive and has rosacea. I ordered this cream to see if it would help and have to say it is very soothing even to my super sensitive skin. It seems a very small tube but have to say a little goes a long way and itís well worth the money for me I would recommend it.
Perfect but expensive ..But works quickly and one only needs to use a very small amount.
Having tried many different creams my face still dry, I thought I would give it a try and WOW it helped clear my dry face and I suffer from stress eczema and after 2 nights of using the cream it's gone too . However use sparingly and if you have oily skin on put on area that's affected.
I use the cream to moisturise my nostrils. It is the only cream I have found that actually works.
I purchased this as my nose was drying up using a full face mask. I read that this cream could be used inside my nose so have been applying some each evening with a earbud. so far it has been okay but its early days. It hasnt irritated me so far.
Wow... Absolutely fantastic.. All my dry cracked skin around my nose has gone now it's all soft..

Delivery charges are worked out automatically by weight and you can clearly see the delivery charges before purchase. On the rare occasion delivery charges are miscalculated by the website, a refund will be sent, as it is not our policy to make money on postage charges and neither do we add the cost of delivery into the price and offer so-called 'free delivery' like some sites and Ebay pressurise sellers to do!
