For years now, La Roche-Posay Cicaplast Balm B5 has been my "go-to" scar cream for just about everything from minor cuts and scrapes to damaged or dehydrated skin.

With over 7,500 reviews (78% 5-stars), Cicaplast Balm B5 is no stranger to skincare aficionados and features an excellent mix of hydrating and repairing ingredients:

  • Glycerin: a popular humectant that attracts water from the dermis into the epidermis for healthy & hydrated skin (Skin Therapy Letter, 2005)
  • Shea Butter: sustained sourced from Burkina Faso, shea butter has been used for centuries to moisturize, repair, and soothe sensitive skin. Studies show that it has powerful anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties (Verma, 2012)
  • Vitamin B5 (Panthenol): this common humectant is found in creams, lotions, and scar gels like Mederma, and helps reduce transepidermal water loss or TEWL (Camargo, 2011)
  • Madecassoside: not to be confused with Madagascar, ma-de-cass-o-side is one of the active compounds in centella asiatica (tiger grass) that improves wound healing while reducing redness and inflammation (Liu, 2008 and Sasmita, 2018)
  • La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water: rich in minerals like calcium, magnesium, and selenium, thermal spring water may provide anti-inflammatory and skin recovery benefits, but research is still limited (Seite, 2013)
  • 1% Dimethicone: last but not least, dimethicone is a silicone-based polymer used in this formula as a skin protectant to reduce water loss. La Roche-Posay notes that it helps nourish and protect chapped, cracked, and chafed skin (La Roche-Posay)

Cicaplast Balm B5 has a rich creamy texture (primarily due to shea butter) so make sure to apply it last after any water-based serum. It does leave a thin white residue everytime that drives me crazy but you can pat dry with a damp towel to remove any excess.

In addition, reviews have been phenomenal with over 7,500+ ratings on Amazon (78% 5-stars).

One customer even said, "I'm pretty sure it's crafted wth angel tears and unicorn magic." 😂

Finally, Cicaplast Balm B5 is just amazing value for money at only $14.99 for a 1.35 oz tube!

Our Verdict: Meet your new all-in-1 miracle worker a.k.a. La Roche-Posay Cicaplast Balm B5, the multi-purpose scar cream that's perfect for just about everything! I personally use it daily to fight dry skin, reduce the appearance of redness and inflammation, and help my skin recover faster & better after a chemical peel or laser treatement.
