The implementation of the World Health Organisation and HSE guidelines to increase frequency of washing and the use of alcohol-based sanitizers at this time, can leave your hands dry, cracked and painful. Use of aqueous soaps and alcohol-based products are vital in preventing the spread of infection, but strips the skin of its natural protective layer, sebum, making it easier for moisture to escape the skin. It is important to take care of your hands at this time. Bio-Oil® Dry Skin Gel uses pioneering technology to restore dry skin and deeply moisturise.
Occlusive’s1 such as Shea Butter and Soja Oil create a thin barrier against water loss, lock in moisture and slow the evaporation of water from the skins surface. Humectants2 Hyaluronic Acid (which carries x1000 times its weight in water), Glycerine and Lactic Acid work like magnets drawing in water from the environment and deep within the skin itself while Emollients3 such as Vitamin A, Shea Butter and Chamomile improve the appearance of skin by smoothing flaky cells, improving elasticity and tone.
The standard creams, lotions and body butters that are currently used in the treatment of dry skin are made using up to 70% water, but as our skin is water repellent, the majority of this evaporates on contact. Bio-Oil® Dry Skin Gel is formulated using 87% oil for an intensely hydrating product. As well as providing deep moisturisation, the oils used include Lavender Oil and Camomile Oil which work to calm the red irritated skin resulting from constant washing.
With 92%* of women with dry skin conditions such as eczema, noting that their skin felt instantly moisturised and 82%* recording a significant improvement in just two days, Bio-Oil® Dry Skin Gel is the new hero product for dry skin. We recommend applying a small amount of Bio-Oil® Dry Skin Gel after washing hands for at least 20 seconds in warm, soapy water or applying hand sanitizer. Available in 50ml, 100ml and 200ml, pop one in your handbag, car and bathroom to ease irritated and cracked hands.
