Sealer: When you have atopic eczema, your skin cannot keep the moisture and thus you need to bathe regularly and then apply the moisturizer on the skin within 3 mins to try to seal some of the water in. The oil acts mainly as a sealer which is essential in controlling AE (AD). Most people needs 2 applications daily if not often. There are other anti-inflammatory topical products - see your doctor.
