Ovelle make traditional licensed formulations originating from the British Pharmacopoeia (BP), a library of dermatological formulations that are recommended by medical professionals globally.
These formulations work to repair and treat the skin barrier. The key to skin repair of dry, sensitive skin conditions is Emollient Therapy a term used by medical professionals to describe how to deeply hydrate the epidermis and allow skin heal.
Emollients come in various forms: lotions, creams, ointments, soap substitutes and oils. They help to repair cells on the surface of the skin and are used to treat and prevent “flare-ups” of dry skin conditions such as eczema or psoriasis.
Leave-on emollient moisturisers soothe and relieve dry sensitive skin conditions by providing an oily layer over the skin’s surface. This prevents water loss from the epidermis, the outer layer of skin and restores the skin’s barrier function preventing the penetration of irritants, allergens and bacteria.
Ordinary soaps and bubble baths can dry out the skin by stripping away its natural oils. Emollient soap substitutes do not foam or lather but are just as effective at cleansing the skin as ordinary soap with the additional benefit of leaving the skin coated with a protective film afterwards. Emollient soap substitutes can either be applied before bathing, showering or washing, or while in the water.
