EMOLLIN - emollient spray providing pure skin protection

Emollin is a new and unique emollient spray, providing pure skin protection hygienically, conveniently and instantly.

The emollient and skin-protective benefits of paraffin-based emollients for sensitive, dry and damaged skin are well known, but how they are presented can make matters worse rather than better.

Although white soft paraffin and liquid paraffin are found in the majority of conventional emollients, such as creams and lotions, they are combined with chemicals such as preservatives, which can act as sensitisers, particularly on sore or damaged skin.

Emollin delivers only pure white soft paraffin BP and liquid paraffin BP from a nonaerosol "bag in can" spray - there are no cold propellants and it will always spray held in any position, even upside down.

Before its introduction, Emollin was trialled by 54 clinicians including consultant dermatologists, dermatological nurse specialists, tissue viability nurses, community nurses and others, who recognised the many advantages over conventional emollients, adding comments such as:

  • Hygienic procedure.
  • Easy where pain is involved.
  • Improves patient compliance.
  • Non-greasy.
  • No mess.
  • No waste.

The full report is available upon request.

In addition to its clinical advantages, Emollin is cost-effective, arising from the fact it covers more than three times the area of skin an ointment does. An independent trial report is also available upon request.

To summarise, Emollin is a unique presentation of pure white soft paraffin BP and liquid paraffin BP, with the following benefits:

  • Reduces risk to cross infection.
  • No preservatives or additives.
  • Avoids rubbing sore or damaged skin.
  • Simple and efficient to use.
  • Contents cannot become contaminated.
  • More than three times coverage of ointment.
  • Available on drug tariff.

Prescription price: 240ml - £5.98.
