Description

Zerolatum Emollient Bath Additive is part of the Zeroderma range, made in the UK by Thornton & Ross. These products are similar to other well-known dry skin products on the market, but retail at a slightly lower price.

Zerolatum is the range’s answer to the well-established Oilatum Junior Bath Additive and its ingredients are almost identical (see below).

The bath additive can help children and babies with dry skin associated with eczema, contact dermatitis, and atopic dermatitis. It can also help aging people with ichthyosis, senile pruritus, and other related skin conditions.

It is colour-free and fragrance-free and presents as an oily liquid that mixes easily with bath water. As an emollient designed for use by children and infants, it contains no common sensitisers or irritants (such as SLSs) and can be used instead of soap.

Being a bath additive, it has the advantage of moisturising the whole body, unlike a creams or gels, which are usually applied topically.

Zerolatum is gentle-acting and leaves a fine layer of oil on the skin’s surface to aid the moisturising process. This oil layer reduces water evaporation from the upper skin layers, helping dry skin to feel softer, smoother, and suppler.

Directions

Adults should measure 15-20ml of the liquid and add it to a standard bath of water. Fully immerse in the bath water and soak for around 10-20 minutes for the most effective treatment of dry skin areas.

After getting out of the bath, gently pat dry with a towel.

For infants and children, follow the same procedure as above but use around 10ml of liquid. If you prefer, sponge the water and additive repeatedly over the affected areas, rather than soaking.

Precautions

Keep Zerolatum Bath Additive out of children’s reach and use only externally.  Contact with the eyes should be avoided.

Check the ingredients carefully and do not use if you or your child have an allergy to any of them. If a reaction is experienced, stop using the additive and seek advice from a doctor or pharmacist.

When you or your child exits the bath, take care not to slip, as residue oil may make bathroom surfaces more slippery than usual.

You can generally use this bath additive safely while pregnant or breastfeeding but, if unsure, check with your doctor first.

Side Effects

Rarely, mild skin irritation has resulted from the use of Zerolatum Emollient Bath Additive. Cease use if there is a reaction.

There have been no reported interactions with any other medicines.

Scientific Research

For people with Psoriasis

HelloSkin’s experts were unable to find scientific data on the use of Zerolatum Emollient Bath Additive in people with psoriasis. However, this product contains liquid paraffin, which helps prevent water from evaporating from the skin surface by forming a lipid barrier on the skin surface. In dry skin conditions, including psoriasis, water loss from the upper skin layer is linked to a reduced skin barrier function, which may be worsening the disease symptoms (1).

For people with Eczema

HelloSkin’s experts were unable to find scientific data on the use of Zerolatum Emollient Bath Additive in people with atopic eczema. However, the product contains liquid paraffin, which helps prevent water from evaporating from the skin surface. In dry skin conditions, including atopic eczema, water loss from the upper skin layer is linked to a reduced skin barrier function, which can worsen the disease symptoms (1).
