What is Oilatum Shower Gel?
Oilatum shower gel is an alternative to soap which is perfect for those who suffer with eczema, dermatitis, or other dry skin conditions. It’s perfect for those who find that regular soap irritates their dry skin, soothing and hydrating the skin as you shower or bathe.
What is dermatitis?
Contact dermatitis is a dry skin condition which is similar to eczema. It happens when you come into contact with something that you’re sensitive or allergic to, and usually clears up when you’ve avoided this substance. When you have contact dermatitis, you may see symptoms such as:
- Red skin
- Dry skin
- Cracked skin
How will this shower gel help me to manage dry skin?
Oilatum shower gel uses the active ingredient light liquid paraffin, which works as an emollient. Emollients form a barrier over dry skin, keeping moisture locked into the skin and helping to hydrate the area. This helps to reduce itching and irritation as well as moisturising and soothing dry skin.
