AproDerm Gel is a highly moisturising gel, without the greasiness of an ointment, which actively draws and retains moisture within the skin and provides a protective barrier to help reduce dryness and irritation. It is also an effective pre-bathing emollient so can be applied to skin prior to bathing to prevent it from drying out even further, whilst protecting it from the irritant effects that can be caused by washing and bathing products such as soaps, shower gels and shampoos. At SFH if needed for other uses eg for lips, then use yellow soft paraffin, available from NHS supplies.If you find you are sensitive to the cream stop use and consult a pharmacist or doctor if you have cause forconcern.
