Mineral Oil Gel
The Silipos mineral oil gel is formulated with USP medical grade mineral oil which has a well established usage preference in orthotic/orthopedic applications. The core benefits provided by its mineral oil gel include:
- moisturising / Softening
- Shear Force Reduction
Another unique feature of Silipos gels are the "visco-elastic" properties which allow the gel to move synergistically with the skin helping to prevent abrasion and discomfort. And of course, all Silipos gels are non-toxic, latex free and hypoallergenic.
Unlike silicone and urethanes, Silipos gels have additional qualities, such as the release of additives in the mineral oil that provide antimicrobial, scar reduction, and anti-aging properties, amongst others.
