Oilatum Emollient is used in the treatment of contact dermatitis, atopic dermatitis, senile pruritus, ichthyosis and related dry skin conditions. Oilatum Emollient replaces oil and water and hydrates the keratin. Oilatum Emollient is particularly suitable for infant bathing. The preparation also overcomes the problem of cleansing the skin in conditions where the use of soaps, soap substitutes and colloid or oatmeal baths proves irritating.
The active ingredient is Light Liquid Paraffin (63.4% w/w). The other ingredients are Acetylated Lanolin Alcohols, Isopropyl Palmitate, Polyethylene Glycol 400 Dilaurate, Polyoxyethylene 40 Sorbital and Floral Spice.
Oilatum Emollient should always be used with water, either added to the water or applied to wet skin.
Adult bath: Add 1-3 capfuls to an 8-inch bath of water, soak for 10-20 minutes. Pat dry.
Infant bath: Add ½-2 capfuls to a basin of water. Apply gently over entire body with a sponge. Pat dry.
Skin cleansing: Rub a small amount of oil into wet skin. Rinse and pat dry.
Where conditions permit, and particularly in cases of extensive areas of dry skin, Oilatum Emollient should be used as a bath oil, ensuring complete coverage by immersion. In addition to the therapeutic benefits, this method of use provides a means of sedating tense patients, particularly relevant in cases of acute pruritic dermatoses where relaxation of tension appears to relieve symptoms.
The product is suitable for use in adults, children and the elderly.
