This Aqueous Emollient Cream is free from SLS (sodium lauryl sulphate), meaning it will not increase the permeability of the skin barrier or cause irritation.
Originally used as a wash product, aqueous cream BP is currently the most widely prescribed emollient for the treatment of dry skin conditions. It is used to moisturise the skin, improving flexibility and preventing cracking in the protective outer layer, called the stratum corneum.
