QV Skincare is an emollient range of products specifically designed to care for your sensitive and eczema-prone skin.
The QV range is dermatologically tested and completely free from soaps, colours, fragrances, and SLS. QV products work together for a complete cleansing and moisturising skincare routine.
If you suffer from dry, sensitive skin or a dry skin condition, the QV range can help to hydrate and soothe the skin, keeping moisture locked in and reducing water loss.
Use QV Gentle Wash and QV Bath Oil to replace your regular soaps and bath additives to help cleanse and hydrate your skin and follow up with QV Skin Lotion, QV Cream or QV Intensive Ointment to protect and moisturise your sensitive skin.
There are lots of reasons why people reach for QV products when caring for their dry skin.
It’s free from SLS, which can aggravate dry or sensitive skin and make it dry out further, whereas QV cream helps your skin to lock in moisture.
Soaps are a common culprit when it comes to irritating sensitive skin and causing eczema flareups, but QV Gentle Wash can replace your everyday soap and shower gels and support your skin’s natural barrier function.
If you have eczema, you may find that QV’s extensive moisturising range can help you to manage your flare-ups at any stage, as you can switch to QV Skin Lotion, Cream, or Intensive Ointment, depending on how dry your skin is at any point.
QV products are designed to suit different stages of dry skin, so you can pick the perfect one for you.
We recommend using QV Skin Lotion for dry skin, QV Skin for drier skin, and QV Intensive Ointment for very dry or sensitive skin.
Eczema can break out anywhere on the body but it's most common in the following areas:
Eczema is common in children, although they often grow out of it as they grow older.
This is why many parents look for eczema treatments that are suitable for their child’s delicate skin.
Brands like QV, Aveeno, Child’s Farm, and Oilatum have skincare ranges that are suitable for children and babies with sensitive skin, including moisturisers, emollients, bath additives, soaps, and body washes.
Having dry skin does not necessarily mean that you have eczema.
If dry skin appears in the same place regularly then you could have eczema.
Symptoms of eczema include:
Psoriasis is also a skin condition that will appear in similar places on a regular basis.
There is a number of symptoms that will potentially show when suffering from psoriasis. These include:
Some emollients can be used as cleansers, either for their hands or as body washes in the bath or shower.
This helps them to avoid using soaps, which can aggravate some dry skin conditions such as eczema or dermatitis.
There are also some emollients that can be used in your bath water in place of bubble baths, bath salts, or other products so you can protect your sensitive skin there too.
However, if you do choose to use an emollient in the bath or shower, bear in mind that it can make your bath or shower slippery.
You should take extra care not to slip after using an emollient bathing product and should clean your bath or shower properly afterwards to help to prevent yourself or others from falling.
