Unguentum M is an ambiphilic (i.e. has an affinity for both oil and water)topical preparation with emollient properties. It maintains the high fat content of an ointment but also has the water-miscible characteristics of a cream. The high fat content reduces water loss from the skin and therefore has a hydrating effect which permits the recovery from dermatitis, eczema and dry or scaly skin conditions. Unguentum M also contains sorbic acid which has an antibacterial effect.
Unguentum M is used to treat eczema, inflammation of the skin (dermatitis), inherited, non-inflammatory dryness and scaling of the skin (ichthyosis, xeroderma), nappy rash and skin damage.
