Research & Evidence

For people with Psoriasis

HelloSkin’s experts were not able to find clinical data proving the benefits of Diprobase Ointment Emollient on psoriatic lesions.

But, the product contains liquid paraffin and white soft paraffin known to prevent water evaporating from the skin surface. Water evaporation is increased in psoriatic lesions compared with normal skin (1).
