E45 Dermatological Moisturising Lotion is a dermatologically tested light skin moisturising lotion that will keep the skin soft and hydrated. It provides 24-hour protection from dry skin.
It works by moisturising the skin thanks to the special ingredient Medilan™. This is a purified, hypoallergenic form of lanolin with excellent moisturising properties. This means that it will soothe, protect, and care for your skin.
Lanolin is a type of wax that is secreted from wool-bearing animals. The name lanolin is derived from Latin, which means ‘wool oil’. Lanolin provides wool-bearing animals, such as sheep, with waterproofing properties for their coats. Its purpose is to protect the wool coat from the environment and clean it.
It can be used by adults and children who require their skin to be hydrated. It should not be used by anyone who is allergic to the ingredients contained in the lotion. These are:
Yes, this lotion is safe to use by someone who is pregnant or breastfeeding. Remember to wash the lotion off properly if you plan on breastfeeding.
This E45 Lotion will smooth and soften the skin, which means for treatments such as eczema creams, this will benefit you. This is because the E45 Lotion will increase the penetration ability of the eczema cream in the skin to treat the condition. However, for other creams, ointments, and lotions for medical use, it is best to leave a 30-minute gap between using the products. This is in order to prevent the treatments from neutralising each other.
Using this lotion is simple. Apply to where necessary to the skin as much as needed for smoother and hydrated skin. Use the lotion as and when needed.
Side effects will only occur if there has been an allergic reaction. If you notice an allergic reaction, contact your doctor as soon as possible.
