Adex Gel


Adex Gel is a highly moisturising and protective emollient which has an ancillary anti-inflammatory medicinal substance. Adex Gel may be helpful in the treatment and routine management of dry and/or inflamed skin conditions such as mild to moderate atopic dermatitis, various forms of eczema, contact dermatitis and psoriasis where the anti-inflammatory action added to the emollient action may be beneficial e.g. during flares.

Adex Gel may help improve patient outcomes by offering a novel emollient preparation which is not only highly moisturising but also anti-inflammatory, making adherence simple and convenient.

Patients can be reassured that Adex Gel does not contain topical corticosteroids and therefore avoids the potential side effects associated with such prescriptions. is a website designed to provide further information on Adex Gel and dry skin conditions prone to inflammation for Healthcare Professionals and patients.

Adex Gel Evidence

  • In a trial involving eczema and psoriasis patients using Adex Gel, nearly 95% of patients stated that their skin condition benefited from using Adex Gel, and the Medical Investigator considered that for nearly all patients Adex Gel was a helpful and convenient addition to their treatment regime.1

  • Approximately half of the patients reported that they needed to use less of their other anti-inflammatory treatments. The remainder reported that they used about the same, and nobody stated that they used more of their anti-inflammatory treatments.1

  • Patients’ responses in relation to clinical performance and key acceptability attributes were very positive, ranging from 81% to 100%.1
