Effective Barrier Cream
Siopel® Cream is an effective water repellent barrier cream with antiseptic properties, useful whenever the skin needs to be protected from water-soluble irritants. It contains cetrimide, an effective antiseptic used for wound cleansing.
Studies with cetrimide have shown it to be active against a wide range of bacteria, both Gram positive and Gram negative, including Staph aureus the most common cause of infection in wounds and burns.
Siopel® Cream also contains silicone Dimeticone 1000, which binds firmly to the skin surface and forms a protective barrier.
