What is so special about oily calamine lotion of Dr skin EMD formulation?
The ingenuity of oily calamine lotion reflex in the ingredients used in the unique formulation. Normally Calamine applied on the skin has a tendency to dry the skin. It reduces the natural wax and oil present in the skin. Due to this any normal Lacto Calamine lotions dries and start flaking. It do not get completely absorbed by the skin and hence remains superficial on the surface. This may cause uneasiness due to moisture in the skin being absorbed by Calamine. It also gives in some cases itching due to dehydration.
Lanoline incorporated in the formulation helps in maintaining the moisture level required to the skin and also gives a supple feeling to the skin.
Arachis oil used which no other formulation incorporates substitutes for the loss of natural oil that are minimized by Calamine. This totally reduces the flaking and drying of the product. The Calamine applied is absorbed by the skin very fast without leaving the ingredient superficially. This excellent penetration helps in fast recovery.
