Help for del­i­cate skin

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - STARSPECIAL BMS INDULGE -

QV ARE the skin­care ex­perts ded­i­cated to cre­at­ing high­qual­ity prod­ucts to help fam­i­lies im­prove their skin health. Aus­tralian-made and owned, the much-loved QV range was ini­tially cre­ated on re­quest by the Queen Vic­to­ria Hos­pi­tal in Mel­bourne. (That’s how QV got its name). In 1975 the hos­pi­tal ap­proached Ger­ald Op­pen­heim, a chemist and founder of Ego Phar­ma­ceu­ti­cals, mak­ers of QV, and asked him if he would cre­ate spe­cial­ist skin­care prod­ucts for their hos­pi­tal pa­tients. Op­pen­heim agreed and QV skin­care was born. From th­ese hum­ble be­gin­nings, the trusted QV brand now has over 30 prod­ucts within the QV fam­ily which are ex­ported around the world. QV is Aus­tralia’s No. 1 der­ma­to­log­i­cal skin­care brand.

The QV phi­los­o­phy is to use only gen­tle in­gre­di­ents that have a re­duced chance of ir­ri­tat­ing del­i­cate and sen­si­tive skin.

That’s why QV prod­ucts do not con­tain soap. Soap has an al­ka­line pH that can strip away your skin’s nat­u­ral layer of pro­tec­tive oils, leav­ing it dry and ir­ri­tated. QV prod­ucts are also fra­grance free. Fra­grances are the ma­jor cause of ir­ri­ta­tion and sen­si­ti­sa­tion from top­i­cal prod­uct use. Avoid­ing fra­grance is es­pe­cially im­por­tant for peo­ple who have sen­si­tive skin or dry skin con­di­tions. QV prod­ucts are free of lano­lin and colourants as well.

All QV prod­ucts 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 in­gre­di­ents that have been proven ef­fec­tive. Whether it’s the lat­est in­no­va­tion, or a tried and tested for­mu­la­tion, QV uses in­gre­di­ents that ac­tu­ally work such as:

1. Glyc­erin:

Works with the skin’s nat­u­ral pro­cesses to im­prove the skin’s hy­dra­tion lev­els. It is an im­por­tant part of many QV for­mu­las in­clud­ing QV Gen­tle Wash and

QV Cream.

2. Squalane:

A nat­u­ral com­po­nent of the skin’s se­bum. Squalane boosts skin mois­ture and hy­dra­tion. It is non-ir­ri­tat­ing and as­sists with sup­ple­ness. QV Cream con­tains Squalane

3. Light liq­uid paraf­fin:

An emol­lient which pro­motes re­hy­dra­tion and sup­ple­ness of the skin.

4. Soft white paraf­fin:

An oc­clu­sive agent with ex­cel­lent emol­liency.

All QV prod­ucts not only hy­drate, but also help seal in your skin’s own nat­u­ral mois­turise by act­ing as a pro­tec­tive bar­rier.

The QV Range

Ev­ery prod­uct in the QV range was de­vel­oped specif­i­cally for peo­ple with dry or sen­si­tive skin. QV prod­ucts are specif­i­cally tai­lored to cleanse and mois­ture dif­fer­ent lev­els of dry skin. A com­plete cleanse and mois­ture rou­tine is the best way to help with dry and sen­si­tive skin is­sues. There are many QV prod­ucts de­signed to suit var­i­ous skin types and sever­ity of con­di­tions. The fol­low­ing are some of the prod­ucts you can find in the QV range:

QV Gen­tle Wash

QV Gen­tle Wash is a gen­tle, non-dry­ing body cleanser that main­tains the skin’s hy­dra­tion dur­ing cleansing to en­sure the skin is left feel­ing soft and clean. The high­est sell­ing QV prod­uct in Aus­tralia, QV Gen­tle Wash’s unique for­mu­la­tion is non­come­do­genic 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 acne prone skin, in­fants and the el­derly.

QV Cream

QV Cream is a highly con­cen­trated mois­tur­is­ing for­mula con­tain­ing 5 mois­turis­ers (emol­lients, humec­tants and oc­clu­sive) to help soothe and hy­drate dry and sen­si­tive skin. QV Cream not only mois­turises the skin by pro­vid­ing much-needed re-hy­dra­tion, it also helps seal in the skin’s own nat­u­ral mois­ture by act­ing as a pro­tec­tive bar­rier. QV Cream is free from propy­lene gly­col, lano­lin and fra­grance. The der­ma­to­log­i­cally tested for­mu­la­tion is also pH-bal­anced.

QV Cream helps pre­vent and re­lieve dry skin, but does not con­tain the com­mon ir­ri­tants that are known to up­set sen­si­tive skin or those suf­fer­ing from skin con­di­tions such as eczema, der­mati­tis and pso­ri­a­sis. The gen­tle, yet ef­fec­tive, for­mu­la­tion also means that it is suit­able for in­fants and the el­derly. QV Cream is also suit­able for any­one suf­fer­ing from dry skin, and is ex­cel­lent for very dry ar­eas such as the el­bows, knees and hands. QV Cream will leave your skin feel­ing sup­ple, nour­ished and pro­tected.

QV Skin Lo­tion

QV Skin Lo­tion is a soothing light ev­ery­day skin mois­turiser that helps pre­vent and re­lieve dry skin. QV Skin Lo­tion acts as a pro­tec­tive bar­rier and mois­turises the skin, pro­vid­ing much needed re-hy­dra­tion. With a lux­u­ri­ously light for­mu­la­tion, it is easy to ap­ply to all parts of the body and is suit­able for all skin types and ages, from in­fants to the el­derly. QV Skin Lo­tion is free from propy­lene gly­col and lano­lin, fra­grance and colour.

QV Lip Balm

QV Lip Balm blends SPF 30+ broad spec­trum UVA and UVB pro­tec­tion with a soft, soothing, mois­tur­is­ing gel that is gen­tle enough for sen­si­tive lips.

QV Lip Balm pro­tects while con­di­tion­ing the lips and lock­ing in mois­ture. It also pro­vides gen­tle hy­dra­tion to dry and cracked lips. The added SPF 30+ will give you the con­fi­dence to en­joy the sun, know­ing your lips are pro­tected and kept silky smooth.

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 glideon ap­pli­ca­tor.

QV range of prod­ucts is avail­able at all ma­jor phar­ma­cies and clin­ics.
