Buy Doublebase Shower Gel

Doublebase Emollient Shower Gel helps to keep dry skin conditions, such as eczema and dermatitis, at bay. It keeps your skin hydrated, smooth and flexible.

If you don’t have a bath, Doublebase Shower Gel can be a suitable alternative for Doublebase Bath Emollient.

You can use Doublebase Shower Gel as a substitute for normal Shower Gels, which can dehydrate and irritate sensitive skin. Use Doublebase Shower Gel as part of your shower routine either on its own or in conjunction with other skin care products, such as body wash, shampoos and conditioners.

The 200g bottle of Doublebase Shower Gel has a detachable hook on the lid which can be affixed to either end. This makes it convenient to hang from a curtain rail in the bathroom out of reach from children and pets.

You can buy Doublebase Shower Gel online from Prescription Doctor’s trusted UK pharmacy. Simply fill out our online form to begin your order. If your order is approved before 3pm on weekdays, your item will be dispatched from our pharmacy in discreet packaging via a fast next-day delivery service.

How does Doublebase Shower Gel work?

Doublebase Shower Gel contains liquid paraffin and isopropyl myristate.

The two ingredients hydrate the skin and act as a protective barrier to lock the moisture in the skin and prevent it from drying out.

When used regularly, it can help to keep skin soft and supple, preventing irritation caused by dry skin conditions such as eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis and ichthyosis.

How do I use Doublebase Shower Gel?

Before you begin using Doublebase Shower Gel, remove the purple plastic hook from the top of the bottle. You can put the purple plastic cap on the bottom of the bottle for easy storage.

You can use Doublebase Shower Gel before, during or after your shower.

Gently squeeze the bottle to dispense the shower gel onto your hand.

Avoid rubbing the skin when applying the gel, as this may lead to irritation.

Before showering

Apply the gel directly to areas of dry skin and gently massage it into the area.

During showering

You can use Doublebase Shower Gel in replacement of your usual body wash, or after using your regular washing products.

Squeeze some gel onto your hand and gently rub it into the affected areas.

You can rinse off any excess, but you should still feel the gel on your skin.

After showering

After a shower, dry your skin by dabbing it with a towel. Avoid rubbing as this can lead to irritation.

Apply the gel to the affected area of skin and gently rub it in. You should rub the gel into your skin in one direction (like stroking a pet).

Leave the gel to soak into your skin for a few minutes before covering it.

What should I do if I forget to use Doublebase Shower Gel when I should?

If you forget to use Doublebase Shower Gel, don’t worry. Just use it the next time you shower.

What should I do if I use too much Doublebase Shower Gel?

Using more Doublebase Shower Gel is unlikely to cause you harm. Simply rinse off any excess or leave it to soak into the skin.

If you experience stinging, pain, irritation or changes to your vision a while after rinsing your eyes, seek immediate medical attention.

Will Doublebase Shower Gel help acne?
