Using Oilatum Shower Gel in the shower, bath or sink
- Wash as usual. When your skin is still wet, rub the gel between your wet hands and apply liberally to the skin and massage gently. If you are applying the gel onto someone else, your hands as well as the area being treated, should be wet.
- Rinse with warm water.
- Lightly pat your skin dry with a soft towel.
Do not rub as this will remove the Oilatum Shower Gel from your skin.
