Abstract

Background and Design: Emollients are commonly used agents as adjunctive therapy during phototherapy and photochemotherapy. It is therefore, important to know if the emollients used interact in any way with ultraviolet (UV) light. In this experimental study, we aimed to investigate the possible effects of liquid/pure vaseline mixture, Nutraplus (R) lotion and Basiscreme (R) on minimal erythema dose (MED) and minimal phototoxic dose (MPD).
