Full Prescribing Info
Description
QV Bath Oil contains light liquid paraffin 85% and propyl hydroxybenzoate 0.04%. It contains no perfume, lanolin or lanolin derivatives.
Action
The oils are absorbed by the skin, overcoming the feeling of dryness. It has been shown that patients with dermatoses associated with dry skin absorbed 70% more oil than normal subjects. When emerging from the bath, a thin film of oil adheres to the skin, retarding evaporation and continuing the moisturisation of the skin. QV Bath Oil is only antipruritic if the pruritus is due to dry skin or a condition associated with dry skin.
Indications/Uses
Treatment for ichthyosis, xerosis, pruritus hiemalis, dry skin associated with dermatitis, eczema, xerosis, geriatric therapy, chronic psoriasis, winter itch (pruritus hiemalis).
