About Doublebase Emollient Bath Additive 

Doublebase Emollient is designed to be added to your bath, to help restore your skin’s natural protection and lock in moisture. 

Doublebase Emollient uses paraffin to help restore your skin’s natural protective layer, keeping skin protected from irritation and allowing dry, cracked skin the chance to heal. It also locks moisture into the skin, rehydrating dry skin and allowing the skin to heal.


Some patients may find that Doublebase Emollient Bath Additive isn’t as effective at treating their symptoms. Here at Simple Online Pharmacy, we have a number of alternatives available, including;

Practical Tips

Dry skin conditions can be difficult to deal with. FOllow these quick tips to help make sure your skin is as protected as possible.

Change your environment - dry air can lead to dry skin. A humidifier can help to keep the air from drying out, and make sure to avoid cold air.
Use a gentle cleanser - many soaps can contain ingredients that cause skin irritation. Avoid soaps containing sodium lauryl sulphate (SLS), as this is well known to cause irritation in sensitive skin. Fragrance-free and colouring-free products are often good for sensitive skin types.
Avoid hot water - where possible, use warm water rather than hot. Hot water can strip the protective layer of oil from your skin, and can cause irritation to already delicate skin.
Avoid the sun - sun exposure and tanning can both cause further skin irritation. While some forms of UV treatment can be helpful to some skin conditions (such as psoriasis), this should be performed by a trained professional to avoid overexposure and further skin damage.

How does Doublebase Bath Additive work?

Your skin produces sebaceous oils. These oils gather on the skin’s surface, allowing them to form a protective layer. In cases where a skin condition disrupts this layer of oil, the skin can dry out. This can lead to itching, flaking and even infection as the skin cracks.

Doublebase Bath Emollient replaces this oil layer. This thin layer helps dry skin by retaining moisture, keeping skin soft and allowing it time to heal from dry skin conditions.

How To Use Doublebase Emollient Bath Additive 

For best results, add Doublebase to your bath every time you bathe.

Shake the bottle well before use.

Add approximately 1½ - 2 capfuls (15 to 20ml) to a normal bath (8 inches of water) while the water is running, to ensure it is spread throughout the water.

Get into the bath, covering the affected areas of skin. Allow to soak for 10 to 20 minutes.

Once out of the bath, pat the skin dry with a soft towel. Avoid rubbing with a towel because this  makes dry skin conditions worse.

For babies, add ½ -1 capful (5 to 10ml) to a small bath of water or wash basin. Follow the rest of the instructions as listed.

Where possible, use an emollient soap substitute with this product - normal soaps may cause further irritation, and may prevent the emollient from sticking to skin.
