Dermalo Bath Emollient is a straw-coloured, dye- and fragrance-free, bath additive for treatment of dry skin conditions, such as contact dermatitis, atopic dermatitis, eczema, senile pruritus, ichthyosis and others.
Most adults, with dry skin, including the elderly, can add this emollient to the bath and benefit from the oily, occlusive layer that it forms on the skin, which helps to trap moisture. Children can also use this product under supervision.
Dry skin is the result of lack of water in the upper layers of skin cells. The lanolin and liquid paraffin in this bath additive form a protective layer of oil that helps rehydrate the skin by slowing evaporation, making it feel softer and suppler.
The emollient can also act as a cleanser. It can replace standard soaps, which often contain substances that strip essential oils from the skin and worsen a dry skin condition.
Usage in the bath means that you experience the benefits of hydration all over the body, helping to prevent skin from drying out.
