AproDerm® Emollient Cream:

If you’re looking for a cream which absorbs easily into the skin and can be used daily as both an effective moisturiser and a great soap substitute, then AproDerm® Emollient Cream is the best choice for you. Suitable from birth, this hydrating cream is perfect for all the family and can be used instead of soap in the shower to cleanse your body. Many soaps (and shaving creams too) often contain irritants such as SLS, which strip the skin of vital lipids1 so by switching to AproDerm® Emollient Cream in the shower, you can feel confident that you’re caring for your skin whilst keeping it clean, soft and smooth. Oh, and did we mention, it’s cruelty free and vegan friendly too?


As with all the products in our range, AproDerm® Emollient Cream is suitable to use on everyone, from newborns to the elderly. Free from common irritants2, we feel our range will also benefit those who:

  • Want a soothing moisturiser to help calm any redness or inflammation caused by Eczema, Psoriasis and other Dry Skin conditions.
  • Have dry, itchy or sensitive skin.
  • Are looking for a soap substitute which will not only cleanse their skin but keep it moisturised too.
  • Want an emollient that is safe to use during pregnancy and breastfeeding.

  • Ideal for those who prefer to use ethical products.

As with all creams, before you begin using AproDerm® Emollient Cream:

  • Check the ingredients list and if you’re allergic or sensitive to any of the ingredients, do not use.
  • Test an area of skin with a small amount of AproDerm® Emollient Cream and leave for 48 hours. If there is no reaction or irritation, apply all over your skin.
  • Consult your doctor or pharmacist if your skin is bleeding, broken or badly cracked.
  • Do not apply to infected areas of skin.
  • Do not use if the tamper evident seal is damaged or missing.
  • Wash hands before applying.
  • Break tamper evident seal on the pump and turn the nozzle clockwise to open.
  • Press pump up to 10 times on your first use to release cream on to your hand.
  • Apply AproDerm® Emollient Cream regularly, liberally and frequently using gentle strokes and following the direction of hair growth to keep your skin soft and moisturised.
  • Do not rub as this can cause irritation and itching and may block follicles, causing inflammation (folliculitis).
  • For maximum effectiveness leave a thin layer of cream on the skin to soak in.
  • How often you apply AproDerm® Emollient Cream depends on how dry your skin is.
  • AproDerm® Emollient Cream can be used instead of soap (soap substitute). Apply to your skin whilst showering to clean and moisturise at the same time.
  • Re-apply after showering to skin that is almost dry to lock in moisture.
  • If you have eczema or psoriasis continue using AproDerm® Emollient Cream even after the skin has improved to reduce the risk of flare-ups.
  • Safe to use during pregnancy or breastfeeding as AproDerm® Emollient Cream is unlikely to have any ill effects when used as directed, however if you are unsure feel free to talk to your doctor or pharmacist.
  • For external use only, if accidentally swallowed see a doctor immediately, taking the pack with you.
