AproDerm® Gel:

Soft, smooth and hydrated. Help your dry skin become the three things it wants to be by using our deeply moisturising AproDerm® Gel. It has all the benefits of an ointment without being as greasy and actively draws and retains moisture within the skin whilst forming a protective barrier on its surface that reduces dryness and irritation. AproDerm® Gel will leave your skin looking and feeling it’s best, so you can focus on the more important things in your daily life. We also appreciate the range of lifestyles people can choose to follow which is why our AproDerm® Gel (along with our Emollient & Ointment) is vegan friendly.

Suitable from birth upwards, AproDerm® Gel is perfect for a whole range of people
including those who:

  • Have Eczema, Psoriasis and other Dry Skin Conditions and are looking to soothe, moisturise and protect their skin.
  • Follow a vegan lifestyle.
  • Need a moisturiser which will provide symptomatic relief for dry, red, damaged or inflamed skin.
  • Want an emollient which has similar moisturising properties to an ointment but is much less greasy.
  • Would like a pre-bathing emollient that can be used before bathing to protect the skin from the drying effects of bathing.
  • Have skin which dries out easily and needs hydrating after taking part in activities such as swimming or bathing.
  • Are sensitive to SLS, parabens, triethanolamine, fragrances and colours.
  • Available in 30g, 100g and 500g sizes
  • Suitable to use from birth.
  • Highly moisturising without being too greasy, hence easily absorbed and so is less likely to transfer onto fabrics, meaning you can comfortably protect your skin, your clothing and bed linen.
  • Holds moisture within your skin and provides a protective barrier to reduce irritation.
  • A lightweight gel that cools the skin as it evaporates helping to soothe skin which is dry and inflamed as well as calm any redness.
  • It has been scientifically formulated to be free from SLS, parabens, triethanolamine, fragrances and colours to decrease the risk of sensitisation and irritation.
  • Perfect for those who follow a vegan lifestyle or who prefer to use ethical products.

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

  • 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® Gel 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 pump and turn nozzle clockwise to open position.
  • Press pump up to 10 times on your first use to release gel onto your hand.
  • Apply AproDerm® Gel 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 the hair follicles causing inflammation (folliculitis).
  • For maximum effectiveness leave a thin layer of gel on the skin to soak in.
  • How often you apply AproDerm® Gel will depend on how dry your skin is.
  • AproDerm® Gel can be used before bathing (known as pre-bathing) to protect the skin from the drying effects of bathing, as well as after bathing to skin that is almost dry to trap in moisture.
  • If you have eczema or psoriasis continue using AproDerm® Gel is recommended to reduce the risk of flare-ups.
  • Safe to use during pregnancy or breastfeeding as AproDerm® Colloidal Oat 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.
  • AproDerm® is for external use only, if accidentally swallowed see a doctor immediately, taking the pack with you.
