What is Adex Gel?

Adex Gel emollient offers an effective, simple and different approach to the treatment and management of dry skin conditions prone to inflammation, such as atopic dermatitis, contact dermatitis, other forms of eczema and psoriasis.

Adex Gel offers a simple and convenient treatment approach because its primary emollient action is supplemented with an ancillary anti‑inflammatory action to reduce inflammation and redness.

Adex Gel emollient has a highly moisturising and protective gel formulation. It contains a high level of oils (30%) and the humectant glycerol. Its ancillary anti‑inflammatory action is provided by nicotinamide (4%), a medicinal substance which is a form of vitamin B3.

Adex Gel can be used continuously, or for as long as necessary, all over the body including on the face, hands and flexures.

Always read the label. If there is no improvement within 2 to 4 weeks, or if you need more information or advice, speak to a healthcare professional.
