Veladerm™ lotionVeladerm™ Professional Handwash Lotion, available from LavaDerma Professional Skin Care, cleans and keeps the skin healthy. Veladerm™ is unique in that urea is the active cleaning agent rather than detergents, which most skin cleansers utilize. Urea is said to clean without destroying the skin's protective lipid layer, which when destroyed by detergents, results in dry skin, making the skin more vulnerable to microorganisms and toxins. It has antimicrobial activity to protect both the doctor and the patient. It is used similar to a liquid soap. Moisten your hands, dispense one or two strokes of handwash lotion into the palm, distribute over both hands, rinse off with water. If you dry your hands well, the resulting smoothness of the skin facilitates the subsequent gloving.
