Doublebase soap substitutes

Because soaps and detergents can be very damaging to dry, sensitive skin it is important to try to avoid using them where possible. To help you avoid these irritants, the Doublebase range includes some alternative cleansers, which are sometimes referred to as soap substitutes. These clean like soap or shower gel, whilst protecting and moisturising the skin.

Doublebase Soap Substitutes are highly moisturising and effective alternatives to soap that cleanse, moisturise and protect your skin.

There are three versions of Doublebase Soap Substitutes.

Doublebase Shower and Doublebase Wash

Doublebase Shower and Doublebase Wash are both highly moisturising and effective Soap Substitutes that cleanse, moisturise and protect your skin. They prevent the skin-drying and irritant effects that can be caused by showering and by the detergents, foaming additives and fragrances used in ordinary shower and wash products.

Doublebase Shower and Doublebase Wash should be used to wash with, in the same way as ordinary shower gels and soaps. However, unlike ordinary shower and wash products, Doublebase Shower and Doublebase Wash do not create a foam or lather. Remember, bubbles are not needed to cleanse the skin.  Doublebase Shower and Doublebase Wash can also be applied and left on after washing to condition the skin.

Doublebase Wash is suitable for those with dry skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, ichthyosis and elderly dry skin and also to help treat and prevent dry or chapped skin on the hands known as hand dermatitis.

Hand dermatitis can be caused by frequent hand-washing, or repeated contact with water or chemicals such as cleaning or hair products.

Any oil based products may cause shower or bath surfaces to become slippery so always be careful when entering or leaving the shower or bath to avoid slipping.

Always read the label and Patient Information Leaflet before use.
