Galen Limited

Description

Myribase Emollient Shower Gel is designed for daily use in the relief of low-to-moderate dry skin and as an alternative to normal soaps and shampoos, which typically cause the skin to dry out. It contains the non-ionic soap substitute cetomacrogol, which gently cleans; the humectant glycerol, which attracts water to moisturise; and isopropyl myristate and liquid paraffin, to prevent water loss and soft en the skin by forming an occlusive barrier within its surface, reducing drying resulting from evaporation of moisture diff using from the underlying layers. It is non-greasy, despite its high oil content, and suitable for use as a soap substitute due to the presence of non-ionic emulsifiers.

Indications

For use as regular first-line treatment and prophylaxis of low-to-moderate dry or chapped skin conditions that may also be pruritic or inflamed, including eczema, contact dermatitis, psoriasis, ichthyosis and pruritus. Can be used as an adjunct to other topical treatments.
