Cleanses. Moisturises. Softens.
Hydromol Bath & Shower Emollient disperses fully in bath water, replacing soap, shower gel and bubble baths. Free from preservatives and fragrances, it moisturises and softens dry skin and eczema. After bathing, less oil is left on the bath surface and more goes down the plughole than other widely prescribed bath emollients.16
