Moisturise your skin
QV skincare is dedicated to creating high-quality products to help families improve their skin health.
Australian made and owned, the much-loved QV range was initially created by request of Queen Victoria Hospital in Melbourne.
From its humble beginnings, the trusted brand now has over 30 products within its family and is exported around the world. QV is Australia’s No.1 dermatological skincare brand.
The QV philosophy is to use only gentle ingredients with a reduced chance of irritating delicate and sensitive skin. That’s why QV products do not contain soap and are fragrance-free.
QV products are also free of lanolin and colourants, have been dermatologically tested and are manufactured to high pharmaceutical standards.
QV understands that while it is critically important to avoid using unnecessary ingredients, it is equally important to include those that have been proven effective:
> Glycerin works with the skin’s natural processes to improve hydration levels. It is an important part of many QV formulas, including QV Gentle Wash and QV Cream.
> Squalane is a natural component of sebum. It boosts skin moisture and hydration, is non-irritating and assists with suppleness. QV Cream contains squalane.
> Light liquid paraffin is an emollient, which promotes rehydration and suppleness of the skin.
> Soft white paraffin is an occlusive agent with excellent emolliency.
All QV products not only hydrate, but also help seal in your skin’s own natural moisture.
The QV range
QV products are specifically tailored to cleanse and moisturise different levels of dry skin. There are many QV products designed to suit various skin types and severity of conditions: > QV Gentle Wash QV Gentle Wash is a gentle, nondrying body cleanser that maintains hydration during cleansing to leave skin feeling soft and clean. The best selling QV product in Australia, this unique formulation is non-comedogenic, so it won’t block pores. It is pH balanced and free from colour, lanolin, fragrance and propylene glycol.
QV Gentle Wash is suitable for all skin types and can also be used by those who suffer from skin conditions such as eczema, dermatitis and psoriasis. It is an ideal cleanser for those with dry skin and is also suitable for breakout-prone skin, infants and the elderly. > QV Cream QV Cream is a highly concentrated moisturising formula containing five moisturisers (emollients, humectants and occlusive) to help soothe and hydrate dry and sensitive skin.
QV Cream helps seal in the skin’s own natural moisture by acting as a protective barrier and is free from propylene glycol, lanolin and fragrance. The dermatologically tested formulation is also pH balanced.
The gentle yet effective formulation also means it is suitable for infants and the elderly.
QV Cream is suitable for anyone suffering from dry skin and is excellent for very dry areas. > QV Skin Lotion QV Skin Lotion is a soothing, light everyday skin moisturiser that helps prevent and relieve dry skin. It acts as a protective barrier and moisturises the skin, providing much needed rehydration. With a luxuriously light formulation, it is easy to apply and is suitable for all skin types and ages.
QV Skin Lotion is free from propylene glycol and lanolin, fragrance and colour. > QV Lip Balm QV Lip Balm blends SPF 30+ broadspectrum UVA and UVB protection with a soft, soothing, moisturising gel gentle enough for sensitive lips.
QV Lip Balm protects while conditioning the lips and locking in moisture. Dermatologically tested, free from colour, fragrance, lanolin and preservatives, QV Lip Balm SPF 30+ helps protect and rehydrate dry lips and comes in a 15g tube with a glideon applicator.
