What are emollients?

Emollients should be:

  • Used more often and in larger amounts than other treatments

  • Used on the whole body even when atopic eczema is clear

  • Used while using other treatments

  • Used instead of soaps and detergent-based wash products

  • Used instead of shampoos for children aged under 12 months

  • Offered as a single product for all purposes or a combination (offer alternatives if one emollient causes irritation or is not acceptable).
  • QV Gentle Wash

    Gentle, soap-free cleanser for dry to very dry skin.
  • QV Cream

    Highly concentrated moisturising cream for dry skin
