Description

Unguentum M Cream smoothens and softens dry and scaly skin by replacing oils, preventing loss of moisture, and protecting the affected areas.

It is a specially formulated blend of cream and ointment with emollient properties, forming a layer of oil to help prevent evaporation of moisture from the upper layers of skin cells.

Unguentum M can be used in the symptomatic treatment of itchy, scaly skin associated with conditions such as eczema, dermatitis, and ichthyosis. It can also provide protection for raw areas of skin and relieve nappy rash.

Because Unguentum M Cream is easy to apply and not too greasy, it can be used as part of your daily routine instead of soap. Used regularly it will restore smoothness, softness and flexibility to your skin. Simply apply it to affected areas after bathing and showering, as directed, for lasting relief from dryness, itching, and irritation.

Its smoothing and softening effect may also assist with the absorption of other medicines applied to the skin, such as the anti-inflammatory creams used by eczema sufferers.

Ingredients

The ingredients in Unguentum M Cream are:

Directions

After making sure your hands are clean, apply a small amount of Unguentum M Cream directly to the affected area, and gently massage it into the skin. You may feel a slight tingling sensation if your skin is dry – this is normal.

Using a spatula or small spoon to take out the cream will ensure that you do not contaminate what remains in the jar.

Use the cream three times per day or as often as you need - especially after you have had a bath. You should find that it is absorbed easily, leaving your skin feeling soft.

If using instead of soap, apply a little water to the skin and cleanse it using the cream. Then rinse the area off with water and use a towel to pat (rather than rub) the skin dry.

If applicable, leave about 30 minutes between applying this cream and your other medicinal skin products, unless otherwise directed by your doctor.

Precautions

Unguentum M Cream should be kept out of reach of small children. Use it externally only and avoid any contact with the eyes. Do not use it if a known allergy or sensitivity to any of the ingredients is present.

Despite no known hypersensitivity to the ingredients, you should stop using the cream immediately if you experience an allergic reaction, such as a rash.

It is generally safe for use while pregnant or breastfeeding, but it is advisable to check with your doctor first.

Side Effects

In extremely rare cases, the use of Unguentum M Cream can cause skin irritations such as burning sensations and reddening; allergic contact dermatitis, with a rash and itching, may also occur.

If you are hypersensitive to any of the ingredients (like sorbic acid or cetostearyl alcohol), avoid using the product as skin irritation may occur.

Research & Evidence

For people with Psoriasis

HelloSkin’s experts were not able to find scientific data on the effect of Unguentum M Cream on psoriatic lesions. Nonetheless, the product contains white soft paraffin and liquid paraffin, which can reduce water evaporation from the skin surface. In psoriatic plaques, more water is lost through evaporation compared with healthy skin (1).

For people with Eczema

HelloSkin’s experts were unable to find scientific data on the effect of Unguentum M Cream in atopic dermatitis. However, the products 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.
