“Miracle Worker”

Makes your skin feel nice

Impractical bottle

I have incredibly dry skin; I'm usually always itching. So yesterday, when I went to the doctor about an infection, he also prescribed me some Oilatum and some special soap to help get rid of my dry skin. I went to the pharmacy and then immediately had a bath. Whilst the bath was filling I sat...

“Good old Oilatum.”

Puts moisture back into skin

A little bit oily which some people may not like.

Having recently been through a bit of a ‘flare-up’ with eczema, I’ve been left with very dry and itchy skin so thought it would be best to have a good soak in Oilatum. As a child I suffered from eczema and instead of having ‘Matey’ in my bath like all my friends did...

My son Jack has suffered from eczema since day one. We already use a eczema cream on his skin twice a day but sometimes it is not enough. We used to use Epaderm in his bath but I found this abit of a pain to use as it is like candle wax and doesnt melt very well in a warm bath. A few weeks ago I...

Hydrates your skin and leaves you silky smooth

Expensive

My Mum suffers with Arthritis and has been on steroids for 30 plus years and they have made her skin thin and very flaky, no matter how much moisturising cream she uses it doesn’t help. Recently she was in Hospital and was showered and bathed with a product called “Oilatum” and they advised her...

“Not impressed”

made eczema worse

My 2 sons, aged 3 and 18 months, both suffer from eczema. My eldest went through a really bad period with it recently, so I sought advice from my GP. She told me to stop using the normal supermarket bubble bath that I was using, and she prescibed Oilatum to use instead. I tried it for a week, but...

Moistures releives skin

expensive

I came back from the doctors yesterday with a precription for oilatum plus for the bath, as I have very itchy flaky skin, which the doctor said is mild eczema. The bottle was a 500ml bottle and a prescription charge is about £6. A 300ml bottle would coust you about £8.50 so you are better off...

“Great for eczema”

published 23/07/2000

I've had eczema since i was 2 and i have always used oilatum all of my life and i find that it helps a lot with it. Even if you do not have eczema, this can help your dry skin a great deal. All you have to do is pour a few cap fuls into the bath water which then turns a milky colour. The only...
