What is Oilatum Emollient Cream Pump?

This Oilatum Cream comes in a 500ml pump that is easy to use. This cream is used as a treatment for eczema, dermatitis as well as dry, sensitive skin. This cream moisturises the skin in order to treat dryness.

How does it work?

It works by soothing and softening the skin, which allows it to hold more moisture. This allows the skin to clear the dry skin and return to its natural state. This cream also forms a protective barrier over the skin, preventing further dryness and irritation.

Who is this emollient cream suitable for?

This cream is suitable to be used by adults and children. You should not use this cream if you are allergic to the ingredients contained in the cream. These are:

  • Macrogol 1000 Monostearate
  • Cetostearyl Alcohol
  • Glycerol
  • Potassium Sorbate
  • Benzyl Alcohol
  • Citric Acid Monohydrate
  • Povidone
  • Purified Water

Can someone who is pregnant or breastfeeding use this cream?

If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, it is recommended that you speak to a doctor before using this cream.

Can this emollient cream be used in conjunction with any medication?

If you are using any medication, you should consult a doctor before using this cream. The reason for this is that there is a chance that the ingredients in this cream will interfere with the medication, nullifying its effects.

When should this cream be used?

This cream can be used at any time, though it is recommended that it should be used after a wash, as the cream can restore the natural oils in the skin lost after a wash.

Are there any side effects?

A side effect will be as a result of an allergic reaction. If you do notice any side effect, speak to a doctor as soon as possible.
