ARJO Oil bath oil & skin conditioner has a light mineral oil base
The mineral oil, like the sebum of the body itself, helps to lock moisture into the skin during and after bathing, thereby helping to keep the skin moist, soft and supple. The mineral oil does not encourage bacterial growth as it is a naturally occurring substance which, under most circumstances, is not biodegradable.
Contains an emollient - the oil is absorbed by the skin all over the body, as it is emolliated into millions of small droplets in the water.
Contains a disinfectant - it helps to control bacteria and fungal infections on the skin, as the disinfectant is effective against gram negative, gram positive, fungi and yeasts. The disinfectant itself does not become diluted by the large volume of bath water, but remains in the oil base, as it is soluble only in oil.
Contains superior skin conditioner aloe vera - which encourages skin growth and promotes healing after burns.
Contains vitamin E - which works as an essential nutrient for healthy skin.
ARJO Oil bath oil & skin conditioner is also effective in the treatment of dry skin conditions and athlete's foot by rubbing a small amount directly onto the skin.
