Oilatum shower gel uses the active ingredient light liquid paraffin, which works as an emollient. Emollients form a barrier over dry skin, keeping moisture locked into the skin and helping to hydrate the area. This helps to reduce itching and irritation as well as moisturising and soothing dry skin.
The active ingredient is light liquid paraffin 70% w/w. Each gram of gel contains 700 mg of light liquid paraffin. The other ingredients are polyethylene, 2- octadodecanol, polyethylene glycol 400 dilaurate, polyoxyethylene 40 sorbitol septaoleate, polypropyleneglycol-2-myristyl ether propionate, polyphenylmethyl siloxane copolymer.
Use Oilatum shower gel exactly as you would any other shower gel every time you bathe or shower. When your skin is wet, lather some of this shower gel between your hands and massage gently into the skin. Rinse well with warm water and then pat the skin dry with a towel.
Do not use Oilatum shower gel if you are allergic to light liquid paraffin or any of the other listed ingredients. This product is not suitable for those who have greasy skin. For external use only, avoid contact with eyes or inside of mouth. This product can make your shower or bath more slippery, so take care during use.
