Aqueous Cream BP SLS Free
Common Name: Liquid Paraffin, Dry Skin Relief cream, SLS Free Aqueous Cream
Dry skin results from lack of water in the outer layer of skin cells.
When this layer becomes dehydrated it loses its flexibility and becomes cracked, scaly and sometimes itchy.
The skin dries out when too much water evaporates from its surface.
This increases as we get older, and is made worse by washing, because hot water and soap remove the layer of natural oil on the skin surface.
Aqueous cream acts to hydrate the skin, and aids the penetration of active drug in the preparations in which it is used.
It is used to re-hydrate dry or chapped skin.
Indications and Usage:
Our Aqueous cream is a SLS Free light, non-greasy moisturiser made from a mixture of emulsifying ointment (which contains paraffin oils) and water.
Moisturisers are helpful for dry skin conditions, such as dermatitis, which get worse when the skin is allowed to dry out.
They work mainly by providing a layer of oil on the surface of the skin to prevent water evaporating from the skin surface.
Used regularly they help restore the skin's smoothness, softness and flexibility by helping the skin retain moisture.
They should be applied frequently to prevent the skin drying out.
