How to Apply iLEX
iLEX paste is simple to apply on the affected area. The key is to apply thin coats, brushing over the surface in one direction, not in a circular motion and not to apply too much. View our simple 4 step process below.
1: Gently clean the affected area
Before applying iLEX gently clean the affected area.
2: Apply a thin coat of Ilex
After washing and drying your hands thoroughly apply a thin coating of iLEX to the entire affected area. Allowing the area to dry for at least 30 seconds. You should be able to see through the iLEX layer to the skin below.
3: Coat with petroleum jelly
If the area is likely to be irritated by clothing or other materials such as nappies, in order to prevent iLEX adhering, apply a good coating of petroleum jelly (e.g Vaseline) .
iLEX should be left undisturbed as much as possible. This will prevent the skin from becoming irritated, which may prolong healing times. When used for conditions where bodily fluids can come into contact with the cream, gently wipe the area with a soft cloth or cotton wool, remove the petroleum jelly leaving the iLEX intact. Reapply a thin layer of iLEX over the area covering it with a generous layer of petroleum jelly, helping to prevent further trauma.
To remove iLEX, gently wash using a soft cloth with mineral oil/baby oil or water and mild soap. Do not forcibly try to remove iLEX that has adhered to the skin.
