I've been looking into a new moisturiser that doesn't have panthenol or any pro-ageing ingredients in it. It reminded me of a cream I was told to use by a doctor one time when I had a rash. It's very cheap and I believe given to a lot of people with skin problems as its one of those 'basic' moisturisers that are unlikely to elicit a reaction.

Would you be able to review the ingredients and tell me if there's anything of note in there?

It also comes in several different formulations:

Gentle moisturisers available:

Skin Basics Sorbolene Cream

Unfortunately I couldn't find specific ingredients for the others. Though they are commonly found in chemists.

What's your take on this? Is it a good basic moisturiser? Would it be bad for acne prone skin? Would it be a potential base cream for DIY skincare?

This is mainly paraffin-based emulsion, probably best suitable for really dry skin.
