Doublebase gel product information

Doublebase gel is a moisturiser that contains emollients such as liquid paraffin and isopropyl myristate that helps to keep your skin soft and supple and prevent skin-drying and irritant effects. It is suitable to be used in all age groups, including babies.

How to use

You should follow the directions on the label and package.
In general, apply Doublebase gel liberally to all areas of skin, in the direction of hair growth. For best results, apply it immediately after towel drying the skin. You should use emollients everyday to prevent flare up of eczema.

Some people may be prescribed steroid creams to be used together with the emollient. You should apply Doublebase gel first and wait for 10-15 minutes before applying steroid.

Side effects of Doublebase gel

Side effects are unlikely but you should stop using the emollient if you experience any burning or stinging of the skin.


You may need to answer a series of Yes/No questionnaires before ordering to determine your suitability to the medicine.
 Doublebase gel is for topical use only. Avoid getting it into your eyes, nose or mouth.
As emollients can be greasy, you should be careful of slips, trips and falls. 

As the ingredients in the gel might be flammable, you should change your bedsheets or clothing regularly as it may be a fire hazard.
