Balneum Soya Oil Medicinal Bath Oil is a bath additive that contains soya oil and is used for the treatment of dry skin disorders such as eczema and dermatitis.
Soya oil is an emollient which soothes and softens dry skin by helping to replace lost oils.
- Relieves symptoms associated with dry skin.
- The oil forms tiny droplets in the water which leaves a thin film on your skin to stop your skin from drying out and so it makes it feel soft.
How to use
Always use Balneum exactly as your doctor has told you. You should check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure.
Balneum is for external use by patients of all age.
Pour the appropriate amount of Balneum liquid into the bath as the bath is filling, be careful that the water is not too hot.
Stay in the bath for at least 10 minutes but not longer than 20 minutes.
In the case of infants and small children a bath of only a few minutes is mostly sufficient.
Do not use soap since this will remove Balneum from your skin and can also dry the skin.
If only a small area of skin is affected, you may be able to bathe the affected area in a bowl or sink.
For a full bath (Adult dose) - 1 capful (about 20ml)
For a child's baby's bath - ¼ of a capful (about 5ml)
For a partial bath in a bowl or skin - ⅛ of a capful (about 2.5ml)
If you have very dry skin, you can use two or three times the above amounts.
After bathing gently pat dry with a towel. If you wipe or rub your skin the Balneum will not work as well.
Adults and children should bathe with Balneum 2 to 3 times a week or as often as required.
