What is E45 Emollient Bath Oil?
E45 Emollient Bath Oil is a gentle, effective bath oil that is clinically proven to soothe and moisturise dry and eczema-prone skin.
What is an Emollient and how do they help dry skin conditions?
Dry skin happens when the skin’s natural protective barrier is weakened. This can cause moisture loss and allows irritants to penetrate the skin, which leaves skin itchy and flaky. Emollients are moisturising treatments that are applied directly to the skin to provide hydration and strengthen this natural barrier. They create a protective film across the skin to trap in moisture. Emollients are used to soothe and relieve dry skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis and ichthyosis, by keeping the skin hydrated and flexible to avoid cracks and discomfort.
How does E45 Bath Oil work?
This bath oil works by providing a lasting barrier that retains the skin’s natural moisture. It is soap, perfume and detergent free to avoid causing irritation. The unique emollient formulation is clinically proven to soothe and moisturise dry skin and can be used as either a bath soak or as a body wash in the shower.
Who is E45 Emollient Bath Oil suitable for?
E45 Bath Oil is suitable for both adults and children with dry skin and is recommended by dermatologists for treating dry skin conditions including, eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis and ichthyosis.
