Description

Aquamax Cream is designed to help the skin’s natural moisturising action to ease the symptoms of dry skin conditions, such as eczema and psoriasis.

With its high lipid content acting as an emollient, the leave-on cream helps by forming a protective layer of oil on the surface of the skin. In most dry skin conditions, the upper layers of skin are lacking in moisture and may be itchy, red, and sensitive. The oil layer prevents moisture escaping so quickly by slowing down the rate of evaporation. This has a rehydrating effect that leaves the skin feeling softer and suppler.

Aquamax is free of sodium lauryl sulphate, fragrances, wool alcohols (lanolin), parabens, colours, and other common irritants or allergens present in some similar creams.

The cream may be used by people of all ages, including infants, and is safe for pregnant and breastfeeding women to use. It can be applied all over the body.

Ingredients

The ingredients in Aquamax Cream are:

  • Purified water
  • White soft paraffin
  • Cetostearyl alcohol
  • Liquid paraffin
  • Polysorbate 60
  • Phenoxyethanol

Directions

Aquamax Cream can be applied as needed during the day – up to several times per day, so that the skin remains moist. Gently smooth into the skin in the direction of hair growth.

Precautions

Aquamax Cream must always be stored out of children’s reach and should be used only externally. Seek medical attention if ingested. Take care to avoid contact with the eyes when applying on the face.

Check the list of ingredients and avoid use if you have a known hypersensitivity. Stop using immediately if an allergic reaction develops.

It is considered safe for pregnant or breastfeeding women to use. Check with your doctor if in any doubt.

Aquamax Cream has no known side effects and there are no known interactions between this product and other medicines.

Research & Evidence

For people with Psoriasis

Hello Skin’s experts were unable to find scientific data on the use of Aquamax Cream on psoriatic lesions.

However, the product contains liquid paraffin and white soft paraffin that help limit water evaporating from the skin surface. In psoriatic lesions, there is an increased water loss over the skin compared with healthy skin (1).

For people with Eczema

Hello Skin’s experts were unable to find scientific data on the use of Aquamax Cream on people with atopic dermatitis. However, the product contains white soft paraffin and liquid paraffin, which are known to help prevent water evaporating from the skin surface.

In atopic dermatitis and other dry skin conditions, water loss across the skin is linked to a reduced barrier function (2), which will further worsen the condition.
