Finding the right emollient that works for you or your child can be a lengthy process. An important part of this journey is making sure that you apply the emollient correctly, this includes the way that you apply it (technique), the amount that you apply (quantity) and how often you apply it (frequency).
Incorrect technique can make someone think that their emollient isn’t working and in some cases can make their skin more irritated and the condition worse. This may stop them using the emollient, when in fact, had it been applied correctly, it may actually have worked.
The AproDerm® Range of emollients can be used throughout the day, as pre-bathing emollients and after bathing. In addition AproDerm® Colloidal Oat Cream and AproDerm® Emollient Cream are also effective soap substitutes.
