I don't know if this information will help you. This spring, at an outdoor market in Cremona, I bought Nivea soft. The label says: per viso e corpo/ crema idrantante/per una pelli piu mordiba, piu tonica/con olio di Jojoba e vitamina E.
I had no idea what to ask for, but had to do a pantomine to explain what I wanted. I wouldn't dare explain the demonstration the vendor used to show me where and how its used.
The vendor had all types of creams and cosmetics at his booth.
You are right is is a very thick cream that toughens the skin. I use a steroid ointment for a week the this cream on the opposite week. (The steroid thins the skin and the Eucerin Plus toughens the skin)
I will go to the ex pats page and ask. And I will take a large container from here when we leave on Friday.
