The purely physical method of action of LOYON®
How does LOYON® work?
The innovative mechanism of action gently lifts the scales and crusts in scaly skin disorders, such as psoriasis or cradle cap. By removing the scales, skin is prepared to be treated by targeted treatment, such as topical steroids, phototherapy or calcipotriol.
What is Loyon?
The unique combination with the innovative method of action
LOYON® is a unique, patented combination of the dry emollient Cetiol® CC and the medical silicone oil Dimeticon. The compound composed of both substances gives LOYON® low surface tension, as well as high creep and spreading properties. The liquid is therefore very easily applied and allows a gentle yet effective lifting of scales.
LOYON® is a certified Class IIa medical device with purely physical method of action. It is applied externally onto dry skin and doesn’t burn, stick or smell. The new keratolytic agent is therefore especially easy to apply. It removes scales especially gently, e.g. for use in the treatment of psoriasis or atopic dermatitis, and is also suitable for use during pregnancy, for babies or elderly patients.
