Doublebase Hydrating Gel Pump helps to relieve dry, chapped, itchy, red and sore skin associated with eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis and other dry skin conditions. If untreated, these can get worse once the skin becomes dried out.
This hydrating gel is specially formulated to help you moisturise and nourish dry, chapped skin. It can also provide quick relief to that itchiness.
When used regularly, it helps to leave skin smooth and soft by locking in moisture and restoring the skin’s natural moisture levels. This will then help to reduce further flare-ups of any particular skin conditions.
Doublebase Gel can be applied directly to the affected areas of skin, before, during and after showering or bathing, as this is the best time to stop further drying of the skin.
After washing, the skin should be patted dry using a soft towel before applying more Doublebass as a moisturiser.
Continue regular use, even after the skin has started to improve.
Doublebase Hydrating Gel Pump can be used for all age groups, including babies, and is perfect for treating a wide range of skin conditions.

• Before using the 500 g and 1 kg bottles, turn the top of the pump dispenser in the direction of the ‘open’ arrow to unlock it. After unlocking, you will need to press down the pump dispenser several times to prime the pump before any product is dispensed. • Apply Doublebase Gel to the affected areas of the skin on a regular basis and as often as required. • Use a few gentle strokes to smooth the gel across the skin in the same direction as hair growth (like stroking a cat or dog). If necessary, allow time for any excess to soak in.
Do not rub the skin vigorously. • This product can also be used before and after washing, showering or having a bath to help condition your skin and stop it from drying further. • If you are applying another treatment to the same areas of skin as Doublebase Gel, try to avoid mixing the two products.
