Derma UK is dedicated to the health of the body’s largest single organ – the skin.

Derma UK formed in 2001 with the ongoing goal of helping to maintain the availability of dermatological products that would otherwise have become unavailable due to production cost implications.

We at Derma UK recognise that Healthcare Professionals require a choice when it comes to treating individual dermatological problems, and it is our aim to help maintain that choice for many years to come.

National Eczema Week (17th-25th September)

National Eczema Week 2016 will focus on the psychological impact of eczema on patients, their families and carers.

Eczema is a dry skin condition which causes the skin to become itchy, reddened, dry and cracked. It comes in many different forms and can vary from person to person.  These physical differences can have a devastating psychological impact on the patient, such as anxiety or depression brought on by factors such as being self-conscious, bullying or teasing. Eczema is often physically exhausting and can prevent the patient from getting a good night’s sleep which can increase psychological stress.  The National Eczema Society recommends emollients for the treatment of eczema. They state that frequent and liberal use of emollients is “a cornerstone of managing and treating eczema”¹, in order to keep the skin supple and hydrated. Furthermore, “Correct use of emollients can reduce the need for topical corticosteroids”².

The best emollient is the one that the patient will use. One of the most important factors when using emollients to treat eczema is finding one the patient is happy to commit to using regularly.


Ultrabase® is a trusted formulation based on over 30 years of experience in treating dry skin conditions. It is a well-established, high quality, licenced emollient which does not contain sodium lauryl sulphate (SLS). Ultrabase® has a non-greasy feel and pleasant, non-clinical smell.
