What is an emollient?

An emollient is a medical moisturising product, which rehydrates dry skin and helps restore its natural defences. Emollients keep water in and irritants out by creating a protective layer on the skin, allowing skin cells to rehydrate and restore the skin barrier. Emollients moisturise and soothe, ease itching and soften cracks in the skin, and when used correctly can greatly reduce the symptoms of atopic eczema.

Managing eczema and dry skin conditions with Oilatum Junior Bath Additive

Complete emollient therapy simply means using a combination of emollients in a daily skincare routine to wash and moisturise, helping to provide optimal benefit. Children and adults with atopic eczema should bathe or shower at least once per day, using an emollient product rather than a soap-based one. An emollient cream should be applied immediately after washing and throughout the day to make sure the skin stays moisturised.
Emollients should be used in large quantities, applied over the whole body.
For generalised eczema, NICE guidance recommends use of 250–500 grams of leave-on emollient per week.
It’s really important to keep using emollients even when the skin is not in a flare
