AproDerm Colloidal Oat Cream is the ‘sister’ cream of the AproDerm emollient. It contains activated colloidal oatmeal, which is known to have moisturising, soothing, protecting, and cleansing effects on skin. It also contains a variety of natural oils derived from apricot kernels, almonds, and olives.
This combination helps provides symptomatic relief of psoriasis, eczema, and other dry skin conditions.
The oatmeal and oils work to restore the skin’s natural occlusive ‘barrier’, which helps to keep moisture in by reducing evaporation rates. It also draws moisture from the deeper skin layers to the surface. In this way, dry skin becomes gradually rehydrated and protected, reducing the dryness associated with many conditions, and helping the skin to feel smoother and suppler.
AproDerm Colloidal Oat Cream soothes red and itchy skin, reducing scratching and, in turn, making further skin damage and infection less likely. As well as soothing the skin, it has a cleansing action, absorbing dirt and dead skin cells.
The cream can be used as part of a daily routine by infants, children, and adults. Its buffering action helps maintain normal pH levels in the skin; and it contains none of the common irritants found in many commercial skin products, such as parabens, fragrance, halogens, SLS, and colours.
AproDerm comes in a handy airless pump dispenser, minimising the risk of contamination and reducing wastage.
