Product Information

Doublebase Gel is a treatment for application to your skin to help treat dry or chapped skin conditions that may also be itchy, red and sore. 

Common examples include psoriasis (scaly, pink patches of skin), elderly pruritus (itchy skin due to ageing), ichthyosis (abnormal scaly skin), various forms of eczema, dermatitis and other dry skin disorders.

All age groups can use Doublebase Gel, including babies.

The active ingredients in this product are isopropyl myristate and liquid paraffin, which are known as emollients.  They help to:

  • soften, moisturise and protect your skin by trapping moisture in the skin and restoring the normal protective function of the skin.
  • prevent the skin-drying and irritant effects that can be caused by washing and bathing and by the soaps, foaming additives and fragrances used in ordinary cleansing products.

This product can be used in addition to any other emollients or treatments your doctor, pharmacist or nurse may have given or prescribed for you to treat your dry skin condition.

Emollients help soften, moisturise and protect the skin. They play a central role in the treatment and management of dry skin conditions. For maximum effect, they should be applied regularly and as often as needed.

When bathing, try to use warm, not hot, water and avoid staying in the bath for long periods. This could make dry skin conditions worse.

Try to avoid using normal soaps or bath additives (even those labelled “moisturising”).

This is because they tend to dry and irritate the skin. Avoid using products containing fragrances, as these can also cause skin problems. You should try to use a fragrance-free emollient “soap substitute” instead. This type of product will not foam or lather but will be better for your dry skin condition.

How To Use

This product is only for application to the skin.

For maximum benefit you should apply the gel on a regular basis and as often as required.

  • Apply Doublebase Gel to the affected areas of the skin on a regular basis and as often as required.
  • Use a few gentle strokes to smooth the gel across the skin in the same direction as hair growth (like stroking a cat or dog). If necessary, allow time for any excess to soak in.

Do not rub the skin vigorously.

This product can also be used before and after washing, showering or having a bath to help condition your skin and stop it from drying further.

If you are applying another treatment to the same areas of skin as Doublebase Gel, try to avoid mixing the two products. This can be achieved by applying the treatments alternately, leaving sufficient time to allow the previous application to soak in.
