Anti-Chafing Sports Ointment

What is Dexaderm™?

DEXADERM™ANTI-CHAFING SPORTS OINTMENT contains dexpanthenol (D-panthenol), the precursor of vitamin B5.

Dexpanthenol has moisturising properties and when used in skin preparations it acts as a humectant (a substance that absorbs or helps retain moisture), an emollient (a substance that softens or soothes the skin), and a moisturiser (a substance that makes the external layers of the skin softer and more pliable).

DEXADERM™ ANTI-CHAFING SPORTS OINTMENT can be used for the management and prevention of chafing in different sports before, during and after physical activity. Chafing can be red and painful.

Chafing can be caused by:

  • the skin is exposed to prolonged wetness (sweat).
  • chafing due to wet clothing in sports like rowing, etc.
