Oilatum Plus Bath Emollient
Moisturising bath oils such as Oilatum Plus are useful for dry skin conditions, such as eczema and dermatitis, which get worse when the skin is allowed to dry out. Used regularly they help restore the skin's smoothness, softness and flexibility by replacing lost moisture and helping the skin retain moisture. This helps reduce scaling, redness and itching.
Oilatum Plus contains 3 active ingredients. The liquid paraffin works by providing a layer of oil on the surface of the skin to prevent water evaporating from the skin surace. Benzalkonium chloride and triclosan are both antibacterials. They help to destroy bacteria on the surface of the skin, which may otherwise infect and aggravate dry skin conditions such as eczema.
Oilatum Plus needs to be used regularly as a bath additive to help prevent eczema drying out and getting worse.
The active ingredients are Light Liquid Paraffin (52.5% w/w), Benzalkonium Chloride Solution (12.0% w/w) and Triclosan (2.0% w/w). The other ingredients are acetylated lanolin alcohols, isopropyl palmitate, oleyl alcohol and polyoxyethylene lauryl ether
Oilatum Plus should always be diluted with water. It is an effective cleanser and should not be used with soap.
