Mix with some glycerin for a great moisturizer for kids with dry skin
Hot

Good for cradle cap!

Good for around the bum area.

99p in home bargains if you don't have a poundland!

Not good as moisturiser as can cause skin reaction. Very good as a soap substitute, so use it in the shower and when washing hands.

Made hot purely for your name and image pic

excellent for when baby has nappy rash too.

This is a great price compared to the chemists although i doubt its the same quality.
I bought some £1 Aqueous cream from the" factory shop" where its always this price., its nowhere near as thick as the more expensive stuff mind. Not sure if the ingredients are also different proportions . I dont think its the same brand as this mind.
Apparently Aqueous isnt that good for your skin if you get skin problems, as it also contains detergent sodium lauryl sulphate (SLS) like most soaps and isnt recommend to be used as a moisturiser by the eczema society.
I had a eczema flare up and aqueous cream seemed to make my skin more sore.
Voted hot anyway because even if its watered down its 5th price of chemist brands.

My doctor prescribed this for my daughters eczema, you're right, it was useless, if anything made it worse, grrrrr.

The thing that really sorted my daughter's eczema was DiproBase cream from the GP.

Any suggestions for sls free soap ? especially cheaper varities.. wonder if anybody has tried Aquamax Aqueous Cream Wash ?
Actually might put this in the ask section..we also use diprobase and a small tube of something ive completely forgotten the name off..

Eumovate ? Steroid cream.

Years ago we used to have Alpha Keri Bath Oil from the Doctors which was brilliant. They then stopped doing it and replaced it with something called Cetraben Bath Additive which wasn't as nice. We then went on to use the E45 shower gel which had coloured beads of oil in it but this we bought ourselves and it wasn't cheap.

You see the BP on the jar? It stands for "British Pharmacopoeia". To put it basically, this publication outlines quality standards for medicinal products. Anyone making a generic drug has to follow certain rules. Some ingredients can vary from one manufacturer to the other, specifically the excipient (pharmacologically inactive part of the medicine). So although Ibuprofen 200mg from Tesco should contain the same active amount of Ibuprofen as Nurofen does, the stuff used to 'pad out' the active ingredient may be different. It shouldn't make any different to effectiveness, but occasionally with some people it can due to intolerances etc. Anyway, long story short, your aqueous cream might feel that it has a different consistency depending on which brand you get, but as long as it says BP on the tub, you can't really describe it as 'watered down' as the amount of active ingredients should be the same, whatever. I might have got some of this a bit wrong, I worked in a pharmacy many years ago, in a different life. I'm sure a pharmacist can clarify!

Funny ..i never really paid much attention to the BP ..thought it was something to do with paraffin ? Thanks for the explanation.i knew about the cheap brands being the same but not about the British Pharmacopoei
