QV Intensive Dry Skin Ointment

Extremely dry and sensitive skin can feel soft and protected with QV Intensive Dry Skin Ointment. This highly emollient intensive balm not only helps rehydrate the skin, it also helps to seal in moisture to the skin.

QV Intensive Dry Skin Ointment is non-greasy and cosmetically acceptable, with active ingredients to moisturise and hydrate the skin. It’s ideal for direr areas e.g. the elbows and knees.

Features of QV Intensive Dry Skin Ointment:

  • Highly emollient balm
  • Protects and soothes sore skin to promote healing
  • Preservative and water-free
  • Apply as often as required

QV Intensive Ointment

Compared to different variations of emollients, QV Intensive Ointment is very good for daytime use as IT’S not as greasy as other ointments, and is absorbed quicker.

There are plenty of other different types of emollients if QV Intensive Ointment isn’t appropriate for your current condition. Typically, the majority of emollients can be purchased over-the-counter from a pharmacy without the need of a prescription.

  • Lotions
    • This type of emollient is thin and is great for hairy or damaged areas of the skin. People with dry skin will want to try another emollient type as lotions aren’t usually moisturising.
  • Ointments
    • Very moisturising, thick and greasy, ointments are great for very dry, thickened skin. Great for sensitive skin because they are usually preservative free, but shouldn’t be used on weeping eczema.
  • Sprays
    • Sprays are great for areas of skin that are hard-to-reach or that are sore or infected that can’t be touched.
  • Soap substitutes
    • Soap, shampoos and shower gels that are generally bought off of supermarket shelves will usually dry out the skin and cause eczema and other skin conditions to worsen. Using an emollient soap substitute can help improve the health of your skin.

Make sure you’re making the correct decision when purchasing QV Intensive Ointment. Other options are available and may be more suitable for your condition.

QV Intensive Ointment 450g

QV Intensive Ointment 450g can be used as a medical moisturiser to treat eczema. They are different from cosmetic moisturisers in that they are unperfumed and do not have any ‘anti-aging’ additives. Emollients have been in use for over 5,000 years and they form an essential part of the therapy for all dry skin conditions, including atopic and contact eczema.

QV Intensive Ointment 450g and other emollients like it are safe and effective – a good skin care routine using emollients can soothe, moisturise and protect the skin.

Emollient ointments such as QV Intensive Ointment 450g are often stiff and greasy (not including this product), and some patients may find them to be cosmetically unacceptable. Nevertheless, emollients are incredibly effective at holding water in the skin and repair the skin barrier well. This is great for areas of skin that are very dry and thickened.

It contains a pH balanced formula that gently cleanses the skin whilst also hydrating it, ensuring the skin is left feeling clean and soft.

The QV Gentle Wash is also great for frequent hand washing. Gently hydrating the hands and washing away any dirt and contaminants.

QV Ointment

Atopic eczema is the most common form of eczema, a condition that causes the skin to become itchy, dry and cracked. When using QV Ointment its purpose is to help reduce the dryness of the skin.

Eczema is usually a chronic condition, although it can improve significantly over time, or even clear completely. QV Ointment is just one of the many emollients that can be used to treat eczema and other dry skin conditions. There are different strengths of treatments including:

  • Very mild (hydrocortisone)
  • Moderate (Betamethasone valerate and clobetasone butyrate)
  • Strong (a higher dose of Betamethasone valerate and betamethasone diproprionate)
  • Very strong (clobetasol proprionate and diflucortolone valterate)

Atopic Eczema Overview – NHS Website

Treatment for atopic eczema can help relieve symptoms and improve the outlook over time.

However, there is currently no cure and eczema that is severe has a significant effect on a person’s day to day life. Controlling symptoms is the main objective when looking for treatment options. There are many different options when looking to control and manage eczema, including:

  • Self-care techniques, such as reducing scratching and avoiding triggers.
  • Emollients (QV Ointment)
  • Topical corticosteroids that are used to reduce swelling, redness and itching during flare-ups.

Skincare Ointment

As an example, when compared to other types of emollients such as sprays and gels, ointments contain less water than other emollients and therefore require fewer preservatives. An example of a skincare ointment that is preservative-free is Zeroderm ointment. This makes it ideal for people who react negatively to preservatives.

On the opposite end of the picture creams may be preferential to skincare ointment for daytime use, due to being easily spread over weeping skin and not leaving a greasy trace. However, unlike skincare ointments, creams require preservatives this possibly causing sensitivity in some people.

Ointment For Sensitive Skin

Sensitive skin is often the reason for switching to different types of creams/ointments/gels. People with sensitive skin will often experience stinging, itching or burning when applying cosmetic or personal care products.

People who struggle with sensitive skin will want to look for ointment for sensitive skin. These products will not consist of any preservatives, reducing chances of experiencing a skin breakout.

Before purchasing ointment for sensitive skin, try and look out for the following ingredients that are known to cause skin irritation:

  • Methylchloroisothiazolinone
  • Sodium hydroxymethylglycinate
  • DMDM Hydantoin
  • Imidazolidinyl urea
  • 2-BROMO-2-NITROPROPANE-1,3-DIOL
  • Triclosan
  • EDTA and its salts
  • Benzoic acid or sodium benzoate
