Everyone knows that a layer of petroleum jelly (Vaseline) on the skin acts as an impenetrable moisturising barrier to bacteria and irritants. But nobody wants to use such a greasy ointment on their face or body.
In a significant breakthrough, research scientists have developed a process that removes 80% of the greasy oils found in petrolatum but retains its superb moisturising properties. It is this enriched special petrolatum fraction (ESPF) combined with a hydrosilicone delivery system that has been formulated into Theraplex® moisture therapy for eczema, a range of non-greasy skin care products able to penetrate deep into the cracks and fissures of the skin and into the skin’s barrier, where moisture is needed most.
There are 4 different formulas of Theraplex®, all of which contain the patented hydrosilicone delivery system and ESPF. They may all be used in combination with each other. Start with ClearLotion and then select the Theraplex® treatment which best suits your skin’s needs and condition.
**Theraplex® ClearLotion** – a non-greasy emollient spray to use after bathing or showering, swimming or shaving. Apply damp skin then pat dry. ClearLotion replaces essential natural oils stripped by water, seals in moisture and provides longlasting protection from dryness. . 5* Seal of Acceptance by the National Eczema Association. Ingredients: mineral oil, cyclomethicone, jojoba oil, petrolatum (special fraction)
