Ordinary soaps and shower gels contain fragrances and detergents and other potential irritants that may make your condition worse – in fact ordinary soaps and detergents are among the most frequent triggers of atopic eczema.
Aquamax® Wash is a non-foaming soap substitute which softens and moisturises dry skin but also helps prevent skin drying. N.b. Dry skin can lead to cracking and infection.
Apply Aquamax® Wash to wet or dry skin when washing, bathing or showering (just as you would apply a liquid soap or shower gel). Rinse off and pat dry with a soft towel, avoiding rubbing. You should still be able to feel the product very lightly on the skin even after drying.
This product can be used with other emollients and/or prescribed treatments to treat dry skin conditions.
Aquamax® Wash is available over the counter as well as on prescription. Health care professionals can contact us directly for more information. The Aquamax® range also includes Aquamax® Cream.
