Description

Oilatum Junior Bath Additive eases the symptoms of your child’s eczema or related dry skin conditions. This wash works by forming a protective film on the skin surface to reduce moisture loss and help hydrate, soothe and soften the skin.

Using Oilatum Junior Bath Additive can help to protect your child’s skin to prevent future dryness with regular use at bath time.

This wash works for more than just the affected areas, and is an effective cleanser for the whole body, cleansing the skin without the need for soap.

Both fragrance-free and soap-free, our product is suitable for babies and children.

Scientific Research

For people with Psoriasis

HelloSkin’s experts did not find any clinical data on the benefits of Oilatum Junior Bath Additive Light Liquid Paraffin on psoriatic lesions.

However, the bath product contains light liquid paraffin, that is known to help prevent water evaporating from the skin surface. Water evaporation is increased in psoriatic lesions compared with normal skin (1).

The product also contains acetylated lanolin alcohol (a component of the waxy substance called lanolin and obtained from the wool of sheep). An emollient with lanolin and olive oil applied for four weeks in preterm infants was shown to reduce dermatitis and was reported superior to a water-in-oil emollient cream (2).

In another study, pure lanolin applied two times a day for four weeks was shown effective in treating moderate to severe foot dryness (3).

Notice that lanolin can cause contact allergy, and that the acetylated lanolin alcohol are believed to be the main sensitiser.
