E45 emollient bath oil contains cetyl dimeticone (liquid silicone) and liquid paraffin. The preparation forms a waterproof barrier over the skin surface. This reduces drying from evaporation of water and keeps the underlying skin hydrated.
It is used for bathing dry, itchy skin conditions where the use of an emollient is required. It helps prevent dry skin by retaining the skin's natural moisture. It keeps the skin soft and comfortable long after leaving the bath. It is suitable for bathing eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis and ichthyosis.
