Dry, sensitive skin has its own needs, and number one is gentle care. Dermeze works with proven gentle ingredients, maximising their ability to cleanse and moisturise through hypoallergenic, fragrance-free solutions that wont irritate your skin.
Dry skin is prone to lose moisture from the surface layer, the stratum corneum, at a far greater rate than that of the average person. Thats why standard moisturisers often arent suitable for many people, including sufferers of dermatitis, eczema and psoriasis. Without constant replenishment, skin quickly becomes dry and flaky.
To retain your skins own precious moisture longer, apply super-emollient Dermeze Ointment. Soft white paraffin provides a rich layer of oil on your skins surface to help prevent moisture evaporating. Its that simple, that gentle - and very effective.
How It Works
This soothing, protective ointment significantly boosts moisture levels for dry, sensitive skin conditions. It helps to relieve redness and itching due to dry skin.
Apply liberally to very dry skin three to five times a day after bathing, or as required for milder conditions. To enhance Dermeze Ointments cooling action, store it in the fridge (not the freezer). To help relieve redness and itching due to dry skin, apply Dermeze Ointment before and after cool compresses.
Liquid paraffin 50%, white soft paraffin 50%, no colours, no preservatives.
Could this sting my skin?
No, Dermeze Ointment contains only liquid paraffin and white soft paraffin , which rarely sting. There are no fragrances, preservatives or colours.
My child is prone to dermatitis. Could Dermeze Ointment make it worse?
Because Dermeze Ointment is purely made up of liquid paraffin and white soft paraffin, it is not prone to mould or bacterial growth and so needs no preservatives, which are often linked with irritant or allergic contact dermatitis reactions. There are no fragrances and no colours either. Only those who are hypersensitive to paraffin need to be cautious.
When my skin dries out a lot, the rash and itching drives me crazy. What should I do?
After cleansing with Dermeze Soap Free Wash with lukewarm water, apply Dermeze Ointment liberally three to five times a day - if youre yearning for the cooling action, store your ointment in the fridge (not the freezer). If the heat and itchiness is still there, apply Dermeze Ointment before and after using cool compresses. Talk to your doctor for further advice.
