Description

AproDerm Barrier Cream is a great choice for those who need an effective cream for on-the-go applications, with wide range of properties. It is specially formulated to protect the skin from moisture loss and to ease the symptoms associated with dry skin conditions such as psoriasis, as well as nappy rash.

This white cream has a gentle formula that is free of the many common irritants and sensitisers found in other commercially sold gels, lotions, creams, and other skin treatments. These include ingredients such as SLS, colourants, halogens, and fragrance, all of which can aggravate already dry skin, causing extra redness and itchiness, and potentially worsening skin problems.

The cream helps to restore the skin’s natural defence barrier against moisture loss, which is often damaged in people with dry skin conditions. It helps dry skin feel softer, smoother, and suppler and, by reducing itch, it also makes scratching and further irritation or damage to the skin less likely.

The gentle, moisturising nature of this cream means that it can even be used on newborn infants. It is useful in relieving irritation and rash caused by bodily fluids as a result of incontinence, even if the skin has already become damaged.

Top Tip:

Its unique formula means that only small amounts of cream are needed per application, even if you have dry skin patches covering large areas. A small amount goes a long way.

AproDerm Barrier Cream is just one of the few products offered by the AproDerm brand on our Helloskin site. Products available here include the very popular AproDerm Colloidal Oat Cream among others.

Directions

First make sure the skin is clean, or cleanse it and dry the skin gently. Apply a small amount of AproDerm Barrier Cream to the affected areas twice per day, or as prescribed by your doctor or pharmacist.

Smooth the cream gently into the skin, in the direction of hair growth. Avoid vigorous rubbing. Repeat application if necessary, however the skin should not feel too greasy to touch, else you have used too much.

Precautions

Store AproDerm Barrier Cream away from children. It is for external use only and contact with the eyes should be avoided.

In order to check for allergies or reactions, test a small, healthy area of skin with a small amount of the cream. Leave it for up to two days and, if there is no negative reaction, it should be safe to use.

Avoid using this cream if you are hypersensitive to dimethicone, trimethylsiloxysilicate, or any of the other ingredients it contains. Do not use on infected skin and, in the event of excessive irritation, consult a doctor or pharmacist.

This product is generally safe to use as directed when pregnant or breastfeeding but do check with your doctor if you are in doubt.

Side Effects

In rare cases AproDerm Barrier Cream may cause mild allergic reactions or local skin reactions. However, no other reported side effects exist. No interactions between this cream and other medicines exist.

Scientific Research

For people with Psoriasis

Although HelloSkin’s experts were unable to find any clinical data on the use of AproDerm Barrier Cream in people with psoriasis, the product contains dimethicone which is known to help limit that water evaporates from the skin surface. Increased water evaporation in psoriatic lesions is known to be a problem compared with healthy skin (1). The ingredient trimethylsiloxysilicate (4%) is a silicone forming a protective layer on the skin. HelloSkin’s experts were not able to find any data on the effects of this specific ingredient in psoriasis or in other skin conditions.
