Scientific Research

For people with Psoriasis

Our experts at HelloSkin did not find any available clinical data on the benefits of Oilatum Emollient Bath Additive on psoriatic lesions.

However, the product contains acetylated lanolin alcohol (a component of the waxy substance called lanolin obtained from sheep's wool). A lanolin/olive oil emollient applied for 4 weeks in preterm infants was reported superior to a water-in-oil emollient cream and has shown to reduce dermatitis (1).

In another study, pure lanolin applied 2 times daily for 4 weeks was shown effective in treating moderate to severe foot dryness (2).

It is important to note that lanolin may cause contact allergy, and that the acetylated lanolin alcohol is believed to be one of the main sensitisers.

Further, the product contains light liquid paraffin, an ingredient known to help in the prevention of water evaporation. Water evaporating from the skin is increased in psoriatic lesions compared to healthy, normal skin (3).
