What is Aquadrate cream ?

Aquadrate cream is a moisturiser which contains the active ingredient urea. It is intended for treating dry skin condition such as:

  • Dermatitis
  • Eczema
  • Ichthyosis
  • Psoriasis
  • Xeroderma

How does dry skin develop?

As we age, the natural impermeable oils (lipids) on the surface of our skin diminish. Washing too regularly, using harsh soaps and cosmetics, taking certain medicines and even genetics can play a significant role in the development of dry skin conditions.

The outermost layer of skin (stratum corneum) comprises many cells packed tightly together with natural lipids. This layer of the epidermis (skin) is responsible for protecting against infection and dehydration.

When not enough of these fats (lipids) are present in the skin, the moisture is able to escape. The top layer of cells, which are normally held together with the lipids, becomes brittle and flake away.

How can I tell if I have dry skin?

The signs and symptoms of dry skin may not be present all the time. Certain conditions may cause your condition to flare up. Common symptoms include:

  • Ashy skin
  • Cracks in the skin
  • Deep cracks which may bleed
  • Flaking, scaling or peeling
  • Itching (pruritus)
  • Redness and inflammation
  • Rough texture to skin
  • Tight feeling skin

How can I prevent dry skin from developing?

In many cases, simple changes to lifestyle can reduce the signs and symptoms of dry skin. Possible changes you could make in an attempt to reduce your symptoms include:

  • Decreasing the length of time your skin is exposed to water
  • Drying your skin by patting, not rubbing
  • Reducing he temperature of your bath or shower
  • Regularly using a moisturiser
  • Using a humidifier
  • Using gentle soaps and body washes

Who is at a greater risk of developing dry skin?

Some people are at a higher risk of developing dry skin than others. People at an increased risk include those who:

  • Are aged 40 or older
  • Have a job which involves regularly submerging your skin into water, such as nursing, cleaning or hairstyling
  • Live in dry, cold and low-humidity climates
  • Regularly swim in chlorinated pools

If changes to your lifestyle have been little to no avail, you could benefit from Aquadrate cream.

How does Aquadrate cream work?

Aquadrate cream's active ingredient is called urea. This compound penetrates the surface of the skin and retains water, keeping the skin hydrated for longer.

This compound is mixed with a moisturiser, which provides an impermeable barrier to the surface of the skin to prevent moisture from evaporating too quickly.

In short, the cream locks in moisture within the skin and replenishes the protective layer on the surface to provide an effective treatment for dry skin.

How do I use Aquadrate cream?

Aquadrate cream should be applied twice daily to areas of the skin affected by dry skin.

Apply a small amount of the cream to the affected area and gently massage it until it is absorbed by the skin.

Do not apply the cream to broken or weeping skin.

Wash your hands after using the cream to prevent getting any of the product in your eyes.

All medicines have the potential of causing side effects, though not everybody experiences them. Understanding the risks associated with your treatment and being vigilant of any side effects which may occur is important to your health.

Side effects may include:

  • Skin irritation

If you experience a hypersensitive reaction to the medicine, cease using the product and consult your doctor immediately.
