    Cuticle cream is an emollient that softens the tissue at the base of the nail. It helps to moisturize and hydrate the cuticles, making them softer and easier to push back or remove. By softening the cuticles, the cream also helps to prevent dryness, cracking, and hangnails. This can promote healthier nail growth and improve the overall appearance of the nails. Additionally, the emollient properties of the cream can also help to smooth the nail plate, giving it a more polished and refined look.
