Aquadrate cream is a moisturiser which contains the active ingredient urea. It is intended for treating dry skin condition such as:
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.
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:
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:
Some people are at a higher risk of developing dry skin than others. People at an increased risk include those who:
If changes to your lifestyle have been little to no avail, you could benefit from Aquadrate cream.
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.
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:
If you experience a hypersensitive reaction to the medicine, cease using the product and consult your doctor immediately.
Do not use Aquadrate cream if you are allergic to any of the ingredients listed on the label.
Aquadrate cream can be used by pregnant women if the benefits of its use outweigh any possible risk to their child.
Breastfeeding women should use caution when using Aquadrate cream. Do not apply Aquadrate cream to your breasts before breastfeeding. Wipe any any residual cream from your breast before breastfeeding your child.
Always inform our prescriber if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
If you forget to use Aquadrate cream when you should, use it as soon as you remember. If it is near the time of your next dosage, skip the missed dose and continue to use your treatment as you normally would.
Do not apply more of the cream to make up for the missed dose.
Using more Aquadrate cream than required will not make the medicine more effective, but can increase your risk of experiencing side effects.
If you apply more Aquadrate cream than you should, wipe away the excess and take care in the future not to apply more cream than you need.
While interactions between Aquadrate cream and other topical medicines have not been reported, caution should be exercised when using Aquadrate cream alongside other topical treatments.
Moisturisers can make it easier for other topical treatments to penetrate the skin. But you should avoid using Aquadrate cream and other topical treatments at the same time. Moisturisers can dilute other topical treatments, lowering their effectiveness.
Allow half an hour to elapse between applying Aquadrate cream and other topical treatments.
Inform our doctor if you are using any other topical treatments.
