AproDerm is manufactured by Fontus Health, a pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturer based in Walsall, in the UK. Although a relatively new organisation, formed in 2012, its founders have been behind other more established healthcare and pharmaceutical ventures. The company has grown rapidly, supplying the National Health Service and partnering with other healthcare providers.
As well as manufacturing products for dermatological use (like AproDerm) the company specialises in development in other areas of healthcare, such as cardiology, mental health, and pain. It is focused not only on the UK market, but on worldwide markets, such as Europe and Canada.
Its skincare range focuses on products that are free of the typical irritants found in many commercial skincare products, such as SLS and parabens.
For psoriasis sufferers, the AproDerm Emollient Cream and the Colloidal Oat Cream will be of most interest. These are both products that can be used by infants and children, as well as adults, as part of a daily skincare routine.
Both AproDerm creams are stocked here at HelloSkin, and offer two different approaches to restoring the occlusive skin ‘barrier’ that helps moisturise, soothe, and protect the skin. The colloidal oat cream is especially unique in its combination of oatmeal, apricot kernel oil, almond oil, and olive oil.
