What is QV?

 

QV is a range of soap-free dermatologically approved emollient cleansers and moisturisers specifically developed for eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis and a range of dry skin conditions .

There’s a product to suit every skin type and all times of day, from light moisturisers to intensive ointments. 

How does QV work?

QV is a type of moisturiser called an emollient. Emollients create an oily film over the surface of the skin, trapping water, swelling the outer layer of the epidermis and closing cracks ⁵¹.

They also mimic the effect of deficient lipids, restoring the epidermal barrier and preventing penetration of irritants and allergens ².

What ingredients are in QV? 

Ingredients in products such as soaps, shower gels, shampoos and moisturisers can cause skin conditions to flare-up. That’s why everything that goes into QV skin emollients has been carefully considered to reduce all potential irritants and increase its skin-friendly credentials.

QV is free from:

  • SLS
  • Fragrance
  • Colour
  • Lanolin
  • Propylene glycol

 

QV contains glycerol

Glycerol is a naturally occurring humectant which helps the skin retain moisture, whilst protecting against irritation. It is non-greasy, won’t block pores, and leaves skin feeling smooth and soft ³.
