Hydrous ointment is also known as oily cream. It works as a moisturiser by providing a layer of oil on the surface of the skin to prevent water evaporating from the skin surface. It is a very greasy moisturiser.

What is Hydrous ointment used for?

Dry skin conditions such as eczema.

How does Hydrous ointment work?

Hydrous ointment is also known as oily cream. It is made from a mixture of wool alcohols ointment (which contains lanolin, a waxy substance obtained from the wool of sheep) and water, with phenoxyethanol as an antimicrobial preservative. Hydrous ointment works as a moisturiser by providing a layer of oil on the surface of the skin to prevent water evaporating from the skin surface. It is a very greasy moisturiser. Dry skin results from lack of water in the outer layer of skin cells known as the stratum corneum. When this layer becomes dehydrated it loses its flexibility and becomes cracked, scaly and sometimes itchy.

The stratum corneum contains natural water-holding substances that retain water seeping up from the deeper layers of the skin, and water is also normally retained in the stratum corneum by a surface film of natural oil (sebum) and broken-down skin cells, which slow down evaporation of water from the skin
