Product Indication

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.

Siopel® cream is therefore useful whenever the skin needs to be protected from water-soluble irritants or external irritants.

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 the first 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 irritants, such as dirt.

Where to Obtain Siopel® Cream:

Siopel® Cream can be bought at your local pharmacy and is also available on prescription from your doctor.

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.
