What is Cutoil®:
Cutoil® is a product with almond oil. It is either intended for direct application onto the skin or to be added into the bath. It thoroughly moisturizes and hydrates dry skin. The main ingredients are almond and paraffin oil, which form a soft, thin film on the skin following direct application or after a bath. This film protects against excessive dryness. This product can also be used on skin inclined to eczema. The product can be used by pregnant and breastfeeding women, as well as on children of all ages.
Cutoil® comes in a 200 ml bottle with a measuring cup. The bottle is packed in a box with the Instructions for Use.

How does Cutoil® Work:
Cutoil® works on the principle of creating an occlusion. Unlike other oils, Cutoil® does not contain any emulsifiers and can therefore be used directly on the skin in addition to being added to a bath or shower. When applied in the shower, the almond oil is applied evenly on the whole body with water. The so-called Tocobiol Plus® is used as an antioxidant, which is a mixture of 3 synergistically acting antioxidants, one of which is tocopherol – vitamin E. Tocobiol Plus® is one of the most modern and effective antioxidants today. It has a significantly stronger and longer antioxidant effect than tocopherol – vitamin E. Almond oil in the product therefore does not change its sensory and qualitative properties.

How does linoleic acid work?
Linoleic acid is an unsaturated fatty acid that is one of the essential fatty acids. It is absorbed through the skin and penetrates into the deeper layers of the epidermis. It is used in the therapy and prophylaxis of dermatitis characterized by retention and proliferative hyperkeratosis, as well as for the prophylaxis of skin damage during radiotherapy and as complementary therapy in the application of topical corticosteroids.

It is recommended to thoroughly cleanse the skin with an antibacterial soap (for example, Cutosan® wash gel), prior to this bath procedure.
