How does it work?

Doublebase gel and Doublebase shower gel both contain two main ingredients, liquid paraffin and isopropyl myristate, both of which have moisturising properties.

Liquid paraffin and isopropyl myristate work by replacing lost water within the skin, and by forming a waterproof barrier over the skin surface. This prevents water within the skin from evaporating and keeps the underlying skin hydrated.

Doublebase is useful for dry skin conditions, such as eczema and dermatitis, which get worse when the skin is allowed to dry out. Used regularly, it helps restore the skin's smoothness, softness and flexibility by replacing lost moisture and helping the skin retain moisture. This helps reduce scaling, redness and itching.

Doublebase can be applied directly to dry areas of skin. It can also be used before, during and after showering or having a bath as this helps to stop further drying of the skin. After showering the skin should be patted dry using a soft towel before applying Doublebase as a moisturiser.

In dry skin conditions such as eczema, using moisturisers and moisturising shower gels regularly, even once the skin has improved, can help prevent flare-ups.

What is it used for?

  • Dry skin conditions, eg eczema.

Warning!

  • This preparation is for external use only.
  • Avoid contact with the eyes.
  • When using this preparation in the bath or shower take care to avoid slipping, especially when getting in or out, as this preparation may make the bath/shower more slippery than usual.

Not to be used in

This medicine should not be used if you are allergic to one or any of its ingredients. Please inform your doctor or pharmacist if you have previously experienced such an allergy.

If you feel you have experienced an allergic reaction, stop using this medicine and inform your doctor or pharmacist immediately.

Pregnancy and breastfeeding

Certain medicines should not be used during pregnancy or breastfeeding. However, other medicines may be safely used in pregnancy or breastfeeding providing the benefits to the mother outweigh the risks to the unborn baby. Always inform your doctor if you are pregnant or planning a pregnancy, before using any medicine.

Side effects

Medicines and their possible side effects can affect individual people in different ways. The following are some of the side effects that are known to be associated with this medicine. Because a side effect is stated here, it does not mean that all people using this medicine will experience that or any side effect.

  • Local skin irritation.

The side effects listed above may not include all of the side effects reported by the drug's manufacturer.

For more information about any other possible risks associated with this medicine, please read the information provided with the medicine or consult your doctor or pharmacist.

How can this medicine affect other medicines?

This gel does not significantly affect other medicines. However, you should try to avoid applying moisturisers either directly before or directly after applying medicinal creams, ointments or lotions to the same area of skin, as the moisturiser could dilute these and reduce their effects. Wait for 30-60 minutes between moisturisers and other topical preparations.
