These excipients are potential irritants and sensitisers which can aggravate already sensitive skin causing reactions that result in the development of skin inflammation and itchiness, which would encourage a patient to scratch their skin preventing it from repairing and could cause further damage. As AproDerm® is free from SLS, parabens, benzyl alcohol, chlorocresol, triethanolamine, colours and fragrances it is less likely to cause reactions in patients and hence more likely to be used by them thus aiding compliance.

An irritant is a substance that causes inflammation to the body in a non-immune way and can affect anyone who comes into contact with sufficient amounts of it for long enough, however those with atopic eczema are more sensitive to irritants. The skin can react straight away (immediate response) or after a period of repeated exposure. Irritants remove moisture (by affecting Natural Moisturising Factor) and oils from the outer skin layer allowing pathogens, irritants and allergens to enter the skin causing inflammation and further damage.

A skin sensitiser is a chemical that will cause an allergic reaction when exposed to the skin and, unlike an irritant, it will only affect those who are allergic to it. The initial exposure will not cause a reaction but continued exposure can and once a person has been sensitised to a product, contact with even a small amount of it will cause a reaction. The two conditions allergic and irritant dermatitis may coexist.
