I have been using Doublebase gel, in a 500g pump-dispenser container, on a combination of gitatte psoriasis and plaque psoriasis.
I have also been using Oilatum Cream, and found them both to be excellent emollients.
I have just discovered Doublebase Dayleve Gel. The 500g option comes in the same pump dispenser as the "regular" Doublebase Gel. Both of the Doublebase products have the same two active ingredients, in the same % .
The Dayleve product has one additional ingredient in the "other ingredients" list. When the Dayleve product is used it is absorbed in the same way and seems to moisturise just as effectively as the "standard" product. The difference is that is feels to leave a protective coating on the skin as a sort of barrier.
This seems to make the benefit last longer than the regular emollient.
I bought the Dayleve from a UK-based online chemist (express chemist) for £8.49 for the 500g container. It was widely available but this was simply the best price I found. It is not cheap, but I do not feel that it is exorbitantly expensive, unlike some products.
Neither of the products is prescription only, although my GP did prescribe me the regular Diprobase Gel.
