Vegesorb is an economical, light, non-greasy moisturiser based on natural almond and apricot kernel oil.
Apricot kernel oil does not repel water as strongly as mineral oils, so Vegesorb is able to penetrate the upper epidermis to provide quick, effective moisture to the skin.
Vegesorb is colour and fragrance free and is safe to use on all skin types, even sensitive skin. It can be used on babies as an all over moisturiser or nappy cream; on the face; and for many other purposes including shaving, cleansing and make-up removal and showering. Vegesorb is petrochemical free, made from pure plant derived ingredients.
Why not sorbelene?
Sorbolenes are the biggest selling skin care products in Australian pharmacies.
Sorbolenes may appear to be great value-for-money, however many consumers do not realise the majority of sorbolenes are made from petrochemical by-products, such as mineral oils and paraffin, and are designed to act as barrier creams. Therefore, sorbolenes do not moisturise the skin, they only act as a barrier cream. Sorbolene creams are a mixture of oil (between 40% and 60%) and water. They have a high oil content which tends to make the cream sit longer on the skin surface. Experts believe prolonged use of sorbolene may lead to the break-down of the skin’s normal barrier functions. Over time, the skin is unable to protect itself against the environment, which may lead to irritation and recurring problems. In many cases dermatologists have recommended sorbolene to people with dry, irritated and itchy skin conditions. The application of sorbolene temporarily alleviates the problem by smoothing the skin and making it feel moist. However, as sorbolene doesn’t penetrate the skin to moisturise, the problem soon returns, the skin becomes dry and once again begins to itch.
