AproDerm® Colloidal Oat Cream:

Our AproDerm® Colloidal Oat Cream has been specially formulated with active colloidal oatmeal, apricot and olive oils, to help soothe, moisturise and protect your dry skin as well as skin suffering from Eczema or Psoriasis. Suitable for daily use, this paraffin-free cream is the perfect moisturiser and soap substitute to add to your skincare routine if you’re looking for something which will leave your skin looking healthy and hydrated, but not greasy, before you head out to start your day. SLS, parabens and fragrances can irritate and aggravate sensitive skin so we’ve made sure to keep them out of all our products meaning they are safe and gentle enough to use on everyone in your family, from birth upwards.

We’ve made AproDerm® Colloidal Oat Cream suitable for everyone from birth upwards. However, we think our cream would be particularly beneficial to those who:

  • Have EczemaPsoriasis and other Dry Skin Conditions and are looking to soothe, moisturise and protect their skin.
  • Have dry, itchy or sensitive skin.1
  • Do not want to or cannot use a paraffin-containing moisturiser.
  • Want an effective soap substitute.
  • Would like a cream which provides symptomatic relief for dry, red, inflamed or damaged skin.
  • Are sensitive to SLS, parabens, fragrances and colours.
  • Require a benzyl alcohol free moisturiser.
  • Available in 30ml, 100ml and 500ml sizes.

  • To make colloidal oat, we’ve ground our oats to make them finer, because regular whole oats would just sink to the bottom. Milling them also makes it easier for your skin to absorb them so you get to experience the full benefits of this amazing grain.
  • Recent research shows that oats have anti-aging properties. This is due to the beta-glucan found within them as it stimulates the production of collagen which, smooths out any fine lines and wrinkles. Another great reason to integrate AproDerm® Colloidal Oat Cream into your daily skincare routine.1
  • Proven2 to protect and restore your skin’s barrier as well as calm any redness or itching caused by dry skin, which means that you scratch less, thus giving your skin time to repair itself.
  • Colloidal oat also acts as a gentle exfoliator for skin so it’s excellent for removing dead cells and maintaining the skins natural pH (pH buffer), which in turn helps it to become less dry and itchy. 2
  • Cleanses the skin by absorbing dirt and dead skin cells. 2
  • Hydrates the skin by reducing the rate of water loss as well as naturally attracting and retaining moisture.

As with all creams, before you begin using AproDerm® Colloidal Oat Cream:

  • Check the ingredients list and if you’re allergic or sensitive to any of the ingredients, do not use.
  • Test an area of skin with a small amount of AproDerm® Colloidal Oat Cream and leave for 48 hours. If there is no reaction or irritation, apply all over your skin.
  • Consult your doctor or pharmacist if your skin is bleeding, broken or badly cracked.
  • Do not apply to infected areas of skin.
  • Do not use if the tamper evident seal is damaged or missing.
  • Wash hands before applying.
  • Break tamper evident seal on pump and turn the nozzle clockwise to open.
  • Press pump up to 10 times on your first use to release cream onto your hand.
  • Apply AproDerm® Colloidal Oat Cream regularly, liberally and frequently using gentle strokes and following the direction of hair growth to keep your skin soft and moisturised
  • Do not rub as this can cause irritation and itching and may block hair follicles causing inflammation (folliculitis).
  • For maximum effectiveness leave a thin layer of cream on the skin to soak in.
  • How often you apply AproDerm® Colloidal Oat Cream will depend on how dry your skin is.
  • AproDerm® Colloidal Oat Cream can be used instead of soap (soap-substitute). Apply to your skin whilst showering to clean and moisturise at the same time.
  • Re-apply after showering to skin that is almost dry to lock in moisture.
  • If you have eczema or psoriasis continue using AproDerm® Colloidal Oat Cream even after the skin has improved to reduce the risk of flare-ups.
  • Safe to use during pregnancy or breastfeeding as AproDerm® Colloidal Oat Cream is unlikely to have any ill effects when used as directed, however if you are unsure feel free to talk to your doctor or pharmacist.
  • For external use only, if accidentally swallowed see a doctor immediately, taking the pack with you.
