What is Doublebase Dayleve Gel?
Doublebase Dayleve Gel is a protective treatment for dry skin conditions such as eczema, dermatitis, and psoriasis. It’s a long-lasting product, which is perfect for those who don’t have time to reapply treatments throughout the day. This gel helps to keep moisture locked into your skin, hydrating dry skin and easing symptoms such as itching or redness.
What is eczema?
Eczema is a dry skin condition that is extremely common, especially in children. Many people who suffer with eczema when they’re younger find that they grow out of it, but others may experience eczema for the first time as an adult. Eczema usually affects smaller patches of skin, but can be more widespread over the body. Some of the most common symptoms of eczema include:
- Dry skin
- Cracked skin
How can Doublebase Dayleve Gel help me to manage my dry skin?
This gel contains two emollients which work together to hydrate and protect your skin, isopropyl myristate and liquid paraffin. They form a protective layer over the skin which helps to keep moisture locked in, hydrating your skin from the inside out. They also help to protect your skin from the affects of irritants, such as soap, which can dry out or irritate sensitive skin.

Eczema, Psoriasis, Dermatitis, and Rosacea: What You Need to Know
I have eczema, usually on my forehead and neck and wanted to asked if it would be suitable and safe to use on my face as a daily moisturiser?
Doublebase Dayleve Gel is a long-lasting, highly moisturising and protective hydrating gel to help treat dry or chapped skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, ichthyosis or elderly dry skin. Doublebase Dayleve Gel contains emollient oils and a high level of glycerol (a humectant) and povidone (a film forming agent) to hold water into the skin and help to make it a long lasting emollient. The two oils in Doublebase Dayleve Gel help soften, moisturise and protect the skin by trapping moisture and restoring the normal protective function of the skin. Doublebase Dayleve Gel is designed to deliver the emollient ingredients into the skin to make it non-greasy despite its high oil content. Doublebase Dayleve Gel is convenient for those patients who find it can effectively moisturise the skin, even if only applied twice a day, once in the morning and once at night. This may be helpful if it is difficult to re-apply an emollient during the school or working day. Doublebase Dayleve Gel can be used by all age groups from babies to the elderly.
