WILTON, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today Aquaphor®, the #1 dermatologist recommended brand for dry, cracked skin, introduced a breakthrough innovation – Aquaphor® Ointment Body Spray.

The continuous spray is easy to use and leaves skin with a radiant, healthy-looking glow.
“After five years of development, we are proud to introduce a true innovation in the Hand & Body category – the first ointment in a spray-able format,” said Erynn Keefe, Marketing Director of Aquaphor. “Building on our long history of skin care expertise, this launch represents our commitment to solving dry skin issues and providing relief to consumers. It is a real game changer for people with very dry, rough skin.”
