Balneum Plus Bath Oil

This bath oil contains soya oil and lauromacrogols. It is added to the bath water to moisturise and relieve dry or itchy skin. Soya oil works by providing a layer of oil on the surface of the skin to prevent water evaporating from the skin surface. Lauromacrogols have the properties of local anaesthetics and soothe and relieve itchy skin.

The oil also contains liquid paraffin, quaternium-18 hectorite, butylated hydroxytoluene, ascorbyl palmitate, citric acid, propylene glycol and perfume oil.

Dry skin results from lack of water in the outer layer of skin cells known as the stratum corneum. When this layer becomes dehydrated it loses its flexibility and becomes cracked, scaly and sometimes itchy. The stratum corneum contains natural water-holding substances that retain water seeping up from the deeper layers of the skin, and water is also normally retained in the stratum corneum by a surface film of natural oil (sebum) and broken-down skin cells, which slow down evaporation of water from the skin surface.

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.

Moisturising bath oils are useful for dry skin conditions, such as eczema and dermatitis, which get worse when the skin is allowed to dry out. Used regularly, moisturisers and moisturising bath oils help restore the skin's smoothness, softness and flexibility by replacing lost moisture and helping the skin retain moisture. This helps reduce scaling, itching and redness.

After using the bath oil the skin should be patted rather than rubbed dry.

In conditions such as eczema, using moisturisers and moisturising bath oils regularly, even once the skin has improved, can help prevent flare-ups.

I THINK BALNEUM IS OK THOUGH DUE TOO ITS ALCAHOL LEVEL AND OTHER CHEMICALS ITS A LET DOWN AS I HAVE FOUND THAT AVEENO HAS TOPPED IT IN ALL AREAS AS IT IS CHEMICALS FREE.
ITS A COMPLETE RECOMMENDATION FROM THE GP AND IN MY HONEST OPNION AND AFTER SUFFERING WITH DRY SKIN FOR OVER 20 YEARS AND RECOVERED FROM HEART SURGERY I HAVE TODAY DISCOVERED THAT AVEENO BODY WASH IS THE ONE WHICH AGAIN TICKS ALL CATAGORIES IN ALL EVERY WAY POSSIBLE. THIS AMAZING BODY WASH IS BRILLIANT. HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT TOO THE WORLD.
