White opaque gel
A long lasting highly emollient and protective hydrating base for regular first-line treatment and prophylaxis of dry or chapped skin conditions which may also be pruritic (itchy) or inflamed.
Doublebase Dayleve Gel may also be used as an adjunct to other topical treatments.
For external use only.
For adults, the elderly, infants and children.
• Apply Doublebase Dayleve Gel to the affected areas morning and night, or as often as necessary.
• For best results use a few gentle strokes to smooth Doublebase Dayleve Gel across the skin in the same direction as hair growth. If necessary, allow time for any excess to soak in. Do not rub vigorously.
• Doublebase Dayleve Gel may also be applied before washing, showering or having a bath to prevent further drying of the skin.
If additional topical treatments are being used on the same skin areas, Doublebase Dayleve Gel should be applied between these applications.
Do not use in cases of known sensitivity to any of the ingredients.
Instruct patients not to smoke or go near naked flames - risk of severe burns. Fabric (clothing, bedding, dressings etc) that has been in contact with this product burns more easily and is a serious fire hazard. Washing clothing and bedding may reduce product build-up but not totally remove it.
No special precautions.
No special precautions
Although Doublebase Dayleve Gel has been specially formulated for use on dry, problem or sensitive skin, local skin reactions can occur in rare cases. In this event, treatment should be discontinued.
Reporting of suspected adverse reactions
Reporting suspected adverse reactions after authorisation of the medicinal product is important. It allows continued monitoring of the benefit/risk balance of the medicinal product. Healthcare professionals are asked to report any suspected adverse reactions via the Yellow Card Scheme at: www.mhra.gov.uk/yellowcard.
ATC Code: D02AX
The oily ingredients, isopropyl myristate and liquid paraffin, encourage rehydration and softening of dry skin by forming an occlusive barrier within the skin surface, thus reducing drying from evaporation of water that diffuses from the underlying layers.
The product is formulated to provide long-lasting skin hydration. Because Doublebase Dayleve Gel is designed to deliver the emollient ingredients into the stratum corneum when gently applied to areas of dry skin, it is relatively non-greasy despite its high oil content.
