Siopel Cream

Siopel Cream is an antiseptic barrier cream that keeps skin clean and protected from water and other external irritants. It also reduces water loss from the surface of the skin, allowing the skin to retain its moisture and reduce the itchiness of the skin.

Siopel contains two active ingredients:
  • Cetrimide: An antiseptic substance which destroys certain types of bacteria that can infect the skin, to help keep it clean. Studies with cetrimide have shown it to be active against a wide range of bacteria including Staph. aureus, the most common cause of infection in wounds and burns.
  • Dimeticone: A silicone fluid which binds to the skin surface and forms a barrier between the skin and water, or other irritating substances that are soluble in water.
Combining these ingredients creates a water repellant barrier cream that moisturises and reduces the risk of infection. This makes it ideal for treating conditions where the skin needs to be protected from water soluble irritants, for example when treating nappy rash in children.

Siopel Cream contains arachis oil (peanut oil) so is not suitable for people with a known peanut allergy.
Siopel Cream is for external use only. Wash and dry the skin first, then apply the cream sparingly and massage well into the skin.
  • For the first 3-4 days: Apply three to five times a day.
  • After 3-4 days: Apply once or twice daily.
  • Active Ingredients: Cetrimide Solution BP 0.75%w/w and Dimeticone 1000 Ph Eur 10% w/w.
  • Other Ingredients: Arachis Oil, Butylated Hydroxytoluene, Cetostearyl Alcohol, Anhydrous Citric Acid, Methyl-parahydroxybenzoate and Water.
  • Siopel cream contains Arachis oil (peanut oil) and should not be applied by patients known to be allergic to peanut. As there is a possible relationship between allergy to peanut and allergy to Soya, patients with Soya allergy should also avoid Siopel cream.
  • The ingredient cetostearyl alcohol may cause local skin reactions (eg. contact dermatitis) which can cause an itchy rash. Methyl-parahydroxybenzoate may cause local skin reactions (possibly delayed).
  • Please tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are using or have recently used any other medicines, including medicines obtained without a prescription.
  • Siopel Cream may be used during pregnancy and breastfeeding. Ask your doctor or pharmacist for advice before taking any medicine when you are pregnant, think you
  • may be pregnant, are planning to become pregnant, or are breastfeeding.
Do not use Siopel Cream:
  • If you know you are sensitive or allergic to any of the ingredients.
  • In body cavities or as an enema.
  • On skin that is acutely inflamed (ie red and angry) or weeping.
  • Before the skin has been cleansed of any irritants.
Take special care with Siopel Cream:
  • Take care to avoid application to the ears and eyes, and any deep cuts involving the head or spine.
  • Wash out with water if necessary.
  • If mixed with soap or detergents its effectiveness may be reduced.
