QV Intensive Ointment is useful for very dry skin conditions. The ointment works by sealing in moisture and rehydrating your skin. The formulation is aqua-free meaning that it will not burn and sting when used on cracked skin or inflamed skin.
It is free from colour, fragrance and lanolin, which makes it suitable for even the most subtle skin types affected by sensitive, dry, itchy skin or eczema. The moisturising properties of the the ingredients, including light liquid paraffin and dimethicone, helps maintain your skin’s protective barrier, prevent moisture loss, and restore the natural conditions of your skin.
Ointments like QV Intensive Ointment are the best type of moisturisers for very dry skin conditions such as psoriasis. The thick and greasy texture with a slow absorption makes them less pleasant for use during the day. This is why some people prefer them during the night when the ointment is left on the skin for longer time periods, which allows it to fully absorb.
