qvQV is a total emollient therapy range for dry or sensitive skin conditions - including eczema and psoriasis. The products are pH balanced, to help maintain the skin's natural protection, and sodium lauryl sulphate (sls) free. QV Gentle Wash, Cream and Skin Lotion contain glycerol, which works as a natural humectant to draw moisture into the skin.

To support patient compliance a range of information leaflets and fun sticker and colouring activities have been devised for those prescribed QV by their healthcare professional. The materials feature a bear called Qool Vince - known as QV to his friends. Qool Vince does everything he can to help children with sore and itchy skin. He helps explain the QV range to parents and encourages children to keep using their prescribed emollient.

The QV range has products to cleanse the skin and others to moisturise, providing a complete skin care regime.
