Diprobase Cream Emollient for Dry Skin & Eczema - 500g
- Smooth white texture suitable for daytime use
- Moisturising and protective properties
- 2-in-1 emollient - moisturiser and cleanser
Diprobase Cream Emollient has a smooth white texture and works as an emollient with moisturising and protective properties. It helps prevent moisture evaporating from the skin and to soothe and hydrate the skin.
Diprobase Cream Emollient can relieve the symptoms of inflamed and red skin that is dry, damaged or chapped. If you are suffering from a dry skin condition, applying Diprobase Cream Emollient before showering or bathing can prevent the skin from drying even further.
The cream can be used directly on the skin or as a substitute for soap as a skin cleanser and skin moisturiser and its light texture makes it convenient for daytime use. Diprobase creates a protective barrier that keeps irritants out and helps trap moisture in the skin.

Research & Evidence
For people with Psoriasis
Diprobase Cream contains white soft paraffin and liquid paraffin, known to help prevent water evaporating from the skin surface. Water evaporation is increased in psoriatic lesions compared with normal skin (1).
The experts at HelloSkin were unable to find clinical data on the benefits of Diprobase Cream Emollient specifically on psoriatic lesions.
For people with Eczema
In people with atopic dermatitis, Diprobase cream has been shown to increase skin hydration and to transiently reduce water evaporation from the skin surface (2).
The product contains yellow soft paraffin and liquid paraffin, known to help prevent water evaporating from the skin surface. In atopic dermatitis, water loss from the upper skin layer is linked to a reduced skin barrier function (3).
This reduced barrier function makes the skin more susceptible to external environmental triggers which aggravates the condition and leads to further itching, scratching and inflammation (4).
In the study mentioned above they were unable to demonstrate a persistent effect on barrier function after using Diprobase Cream for 28 days (2). A study on the efficacy of Diprobase Cream in infants with eczema is ongoing (5).
