How does Adex gel help treat dry skin conditions?
Adex gel contains an emollient, which forms a protective barrier over the skin when applied, helping to lock moisture in and protect the skin from irritants. This barrier can help treat dry skin conditions such as eczema, dermatitis, and psoriasis by reducing inflammation and helping the skin to heal and stay hydrated.
Does Adex Gel contain steroids?
Adex Gel does not contain steroids. Aside from the emollient, which forms the protective barrier on the skin in order to lock in moisture, Adex Gel contains nicotinamide which has natural anti-inflammatory properties, making it suitable for calming irritated skin. Nicotinamide is however not a steroid, Adex gel is thus steroid-free.
Is Adex Gel the same as Doublebase?
The ingredients in Adex Gel and Doublebase Dry Skin Emollient are identical with one exception which is the nicotinamide in Adex Gel, which has natural anti-inflammatory properties.
How long does it take for Adex Gel to work?
Results from using Adex Gel should be seen within a few days of regular use. Dry skin becomes softer and skin with symptoms related to eczema or psoriasis, such as scaly skin, should see a positive effect within a few days as well. It is important to note that for treating eczema and psoriasis results may vary widely between individuals and also will depend on the severity of the condition.
