What is eczema?
Eczema is a common skin condition that many people suffer with. When you are experiencing an eczema flare-up, you may notice that your skin can become red, sore, itchy, dry, or cracked. This can happen in small patches but can also affect larger areas of the body. Some of the most common places to experience eczema include:
- Insides of elbows

How will this gel help to relieve my dry, chapped skin?
Doublebase Gel contains the active ingredients isopropyl myristate and liquid paraffin, which are both known as emollients. Emollients help to trap moisture in your skin, forming a protective barrier that helps to keep moisture locked into the skin. This helps to keep skin from drying while also protecting skin from the drying, irritating effects of products such as soaps or fragrances found in ordinary cleansers.
How to use Doublebase Gel
For best results, apply Doublebase Gel to affected areas of skin regularly and as often as required. Smooth the gel over the skin using gentle strokes, stroking in direction of hair growth, do not rub in vigorously. Allow time for the gel to soak in if necessary. You can use Doublebase Gel before or after bathing or showering to help to condition your skin and stop it from drying further.
Who is this gel suitable for?
This gel is suitable to be used by adults and children of all ages. It is also suitable for anyone pregnant or breastfeeding. If you are using any other types of medication then speaking to a doctor or pharmacist before using is advised.
