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:

  • Cushioning
  • moisturising / Softening
  • Shear Force Reduction
  • Support


Silipos polymer gel technology provides a unique dermo-delivery system that gradually diffuses USP medical grade mineral oil to impart deep moisturization for soft and supple skin.

Another unique feature of Silipos Gels & Felts> 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 & Felts> are non-toxic, latex free and hypoallergenic.

Unlike silicone and urethanes, Silipos Gels & Felts> have additional qualities, such as the release of additives in the mineral oil that provide antimicrobial, scar reduction, and anti-ageing properties, amongst others.
