Doublebase Emollient Shower Gel

Doublebase Emollient Shower Gel helps to treat dry or chapped skin conditions that may also be itchy, red and sore such as psoriasis, elderly pruritus, icthyosis, dermatitis and eczema.

Doublebase Emollient Shower Gel contains two emollients, isopropyl myristate and liquid paraffin. These help to soften, moisturise and protect your skin by trapping moisture in the skin and restoring the normal protective function of the skin. They also prevent the skin-drying and irritation that can be caused by ordinary shower products.

Doublebase Emollient Shower Gel can be used by all age groups who normally shower.

Directions

For maximum benefit, use Doublebase Emollient Shower Gel every time you shower.

Doublebase Emollient Shower Gel can be used either before, during or after showering - whichever suit you best.

Before showering:
  • Apply the gel to the dry areas of the skin, using a few gentle strokes.
During showering:
  • Apply the gel using a gentle washing action.
  • You may prefer to use your normal soap or shower gel as well as Doublebase Emollient Shower Gel when showering. If you do, use Doublebase Emollient
  • Shower Gel afterwards to condition your skin. As a general rule, however, the use of normal soaps and shower gels (even those labelled "moisturising") is best avoided, or at least kept to a minimum.
  • Rinse off any excess (you should still be able to feel the product coating the skin).
After showering:
  • Pat the skin dry with a soft towel (avoid rubbing as this can make dry skin conditions worse).
  • Apply the gel to areas of dry skin, using a few gentle strokes to smooth across the skin in the same direction as hair growth.
  • Allow any excess to soak in.

Ingredients

  • Active Ingredients: Isopropyl Myristate 15% w/w and Liquid Paraffin 15% w/w.
  • Other Ingredients: Macrogol Cetostearyl Ether (Cetomacrogol), Glycerol, Carbomer, Sorbitan Laurate, Triethanolamine, Phenoxyethanol and Purified Water.

Cautions

  • Do not use Doublebase Emollient Shower Gel if you are allergic (hypersensitive) to isopropyl myristate, liquid paraffin or any of the other ingredients.
  • This product can be used during pregnancy and while breastfeeding. The ingredients have been in widespread use in this and similar preparations for many years, without reports of problems. However, safety trials have not been conducted.
  • Take special care when using this product:
    • It can make your shower tray (or bath surface) slippery, so be careful to avoid slipping over when getting into and out of your shower (eg by using a shower or bath mat).
    • After use, clean out the shower tray with a suitable detergent to remove any remaining greasiness (wearing protective gloves to avoid irritating your hands).
