The best foot creams are often a personal choice. The smell, feel and coverage all go along way to a good foot cream. Foot cream contains moisturizers and special additives that have a beneficial effect on skin of the foot and ankle. The water and water-soluble ingredients may be beneficial and also contribute to a pleasant skin feel on application. Oils may leave a protective film on the skin; vitamins and UV protection ingredients are mostly oil-soluble and oils also contribute to a pleasant skin feel on application.

What else is in foot creams?
Emulsifiers hold it all together. The consistency of the foot cream can vary between brands, this is one of the main issues that companies will look at when making a new cream.
The feeling of application can make or break a brand. Too oily, or too thick are both equally a problem. Preservatives are also added to prevent microbial contamination. Perfumes are the icing on the cake and make it smell nice. For some people this is the most important feature.
Whats the main ingredient?
Apart from water, the main ingredient that makes a difference is urea. this is the bodies own natural moisturizer. It is often used in higher concentrations in foot creams designed to treat very hard skin or cracked heels.
