Cream of the crop

It has now been proven that some moisturisers maybe causing more harm than good. For example, Aqueous Cream, the most widely prescribed moisturiser in the NHS, has recently been shown to also cause skin thinning, drawing the conclusion that Aqueous Cream BP should not be used as a leave-on emollient in patients with conditions such as atopic dermatitis.The likely problem appears to be the detergent Sodium Lauryl Sulphate (SLS) which is present in aqueous creams.

Aquamax Cream is a new SLS-free, longer lasting moisturiser which has been specially formulated for softening, protecting and moisturising dry skin in eczema, psoriasis and other dry skin conditions and is suitable for all ages including babies. It is available on prescription as well as from Sainsbury’s, Boots and other leading chemists.
