Oleogel R is designed to care for sensitive skin and is especially effective in treating skin conditions such as rosacea and perioral dermatitis due to its high dosage of lipids.
The water-free formulation of Oleogel R contains vegetable oils, barrier protecting substances and azelaic acid, betulinic acid, urea, frankincense extract, zinc salt and evening primrose oil. The product penetrates rapidly due to the content of natural phosphatidylcholine.
Traditionally, the use of lipid-rich skincare products can be counterproductive as a rule, especially if anaerobic germs are present. However, due to the specific nature of this formulation, barrier disordered skins significantly benefit from this composition of maximal lipid content free from water. Essential gamma linolenic acid, azelaic acid, boswellic acids and betulinic acid support the prevention of inflammatory skin reactions. Urea provides antiitching properties, while zinc PCA adds further antimicrobial activity.
Only small amounts of Oleogel R are needed for application, making it extremely economical for the care of compromised skin (three to fourfold efficacy of an emulsion). Oleogel R should ideally be applied in the evening because of the content of essential fatty acids. However, if tolerated under makeup, it can be applied during the day. It can be used as an effective massage medium in combination with fatty oils like avocado oil.
