Siopel® Cream

Product Information
Siopel® Cream is an effective water repellent barrier cream with antiseptic properties, useful whenever the skin needs to be protected from water-soluble irritants.
Siopel® Cream contains two active ingredients, cetrimide and dimeticone. Cetrimide is an antiseptic which destroys a wide range of bacteria (germs), including those found in wounds, whilst dimeticone protects the skin from water.

How to Use Siopel® Cream:
Wash and dry the skin. Apply the cream sparingly and massage well into the skin.
• Apply three to five times daily for three to four days, then once or twice daily.
• Do not use on skin that is acutely inflamed or weeping, or before the skin has been cleansed of contaminating irritants.

Product Information:
Siopel® Cream contains Arachis oil (peanut oil) and should not be applied by patients known to be allergic to peanut. As there is a possible relationship between allergy to peanut and allergy to soya, patients with soya allergy should also avoid Siopel® Cream.
