Dermol 500 Lotion is for the management of dry and itchy skin conditions such as eczema and dermatitis. In dry skin conditions such as eczema, using moisturisers regularly, even once the skin has improved, can help prevent flare-ups. Dermol 500 also helps reduce scaling, redness and itching.
Product descriptionDermol 500 Lotion
Dermol 500 Lotion is useful for dry skin conditions, such as eczema and dermatitis, which get worse when the skin is allowed to dry out.
This antimicrobial emollient and moisturiser are specially formulated to address dry, chapped skin as well as use as a soap substitute. It replaces lost moisture and locks it into the skin.
Used regularly, this lotion can 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.Dermol 500 Lotion contains four main ingredients:
- Liquid paraffin and isopropyl myristate, both of which have moisturising properties
- Benzalkonium chloride and chlorhexidine hydrochloride, which are antiseptics
Liquid paraffin and isopropyl myristate work by replacing lost water within the skin, and by forming a waterproof barrier over the skin surface. This prevents water within the skin from evaporating and keeps the underlying skin hydrated.
Benzalkonium chloride and chlorhexidine hydrochloride have antiseptic properties that help to destroy bacteria on the surface of the skin, which may otherwise infect and aggravate dry skin conditions such as eczema.
Directions of use of Dermol 500 Lotion for adults, children and the elderly:
- For application to the skin: Apply the lotion to the affected areas and massage gently into the skin, until absorbed. Repeat as often as required.
- For use as a soap substitute: Use as a cleanser in the bath or shower, or for other toiletry purposes, instead of ordinary soap or shower gel.
