Alhydran scar cream is a clinically tested, concentrated scar care product which protects and speeds up healing of newly closed, delicate skin. Recommended by burns centres and hospitals across Europe for scars and radiotherapy burns [1].

  • Protects new skin and moisturises deeply, reducing dryness, itching and flaking
  • Restores skin’s suppleness and actively reduces appearance of burns and scars
  • High quality natural ingredients including fresh aloe vera gel, jojoba oil, vitamin E and vitamin C

Alhydran forms a protective layer on top of healing skin, shielding the newly formed outermost skin layer and encouraging it to heal faster. The moisturising ingredients penetrate deeply into the skin and restore suppleness, reducing tightness and itching during the healing process.

Developed and extensively tested by reconstruction experts in burns centres across Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands, Alhydran is recommended by burn centres and hospitals across Europe for treating radiation burns and surgery scars acquired as part of cancer treatment.

Alhydran is metal-free, fragrance-free, pH-neutral, skin-friendly and is not tested on animals.

Caring for skin after radiation therapy

If you’re going through radiotherapy as part of your cancer treatment, it’s likely that you’ll experience some localised skin irritation and damage in the area being treated. Chemotherapy can also affect your skin and cause itching, dryness and flakiness, and combined with the burning effect of radiation therapy, your skin can become very sore and delicate.

Finding a cream that relieves these symptoms can make a big difference to your quality of life whilst recovering, but there are a few things to bear in mind while undergoing radiation therapy:

  • Avoid products containing metal. Even tiny particles of metal can ‘etch’ themselves into your skin during radiotherapy and make soreness worse.
  • Choose something unscented and pH-neutral. Products should cause as little irritation to the skin as possible.
  • Do not apply to open wounds. Moist, open burns will heal quickly but should be bandaged, not treated with a cream.
  • Use extra sun protection. Healing skin is extra sensitive to sun damage, so keeping your skin covered when going outside (even in overcast weather) is essential to help the healing process. If you're not able to cover the area when going outside, use a cream with SPF - Alhydran SPF is designed especially for this purpose.
  • Always consult your doctor if you’re planning to use a cream during treatment. They may be familiar with Alhydran and recommend it, or they may decide it isn’t suitable for your particular course of treatment.
  • Alhydran Scar Cream is metal-free, unscented, and pH-neutral - making it the ideal solution for burned skin after radiotherapy, as well as tight, healing scar tissue after surgery.

What is the difference between Alhydran Scar Cream and Alhydran SPF?

Alhydran SPF contains all the benefits of regular Alhydran Scar Cream, but with the added sun protection factor of SPF 30. Alhydran SPF 30 protects against 97% of UVB rays, helping to keep vulnerable skin healthy and speed up the healing process.


Alhydran Scar Cream Ingredients: Aruba Aloe vera gel, aqua, caprylic/capric triglyceride, cetearyl alcohol, decyl oleate, cetearyl isononoate, glyceryl stearate, PEG-20 glyceryl stearate, ceteareth-20, cetyl palmitate, sorbitan stearate, propylene glycol, tocopheryl acetate (vitamin E acetate), ascorbic acid (vitamin C), jojoba oil, phenoxyethanol, caprilyl glycol, chlorphenesin, disodium EDTA.

  • Apply at least three times daily, or when the skin feels itchy, dry or irritated.
  • Apply thinly and rub in gently until it is fully absorbed into the skin.
  • Do not apply on open wounds - if your radiation burn is serious enough that it is moist and still healing, it should be bandaged, not treated with a cream. Creams should only be used on healing, newly formed skin.
  • Do not use if you are allergic to any of the ingredients.
