Explained

Hydrocortisone is the name for the hormone cortisol when used in medication.

It is medication and not technically a cosmetic ingredient. Most countries allow topical creams to contain up between 0.05 - 2.5% (depending on the country) of hydrocortisone without a prescription. Higher amounts usually require a prescription from a professional.

Hydrocortisone can help relieve rashes, eczema, itching, and other inflammation induced skin conditions.

We recommend speaking with a professional about using this ingredient.
