The basic ingredients -- mineral oil, water, emulsifier -- are the same for all kinds of moisturizer; proportions determine how "gooey" the product is -- and preference for that varies more by skin type than by age. ...Read more

Using the cream all over the body should prevent dryness, & should be safe as long as the cream is hypoallergenic, and well-reputed brand. Avoid creams with excess perfumes, colorings, bleaches, "whiteners" or other additives. These can dry out skin & cause more problems in the future. Good luck. ...Read more
