Flammable Emollient Skin Creams


The fire service have warned of the risk of using moisturising creams containing paraffin and petroleum bases. The cream seeps into the bedclothes of wearers at night, and if the person drop a cigarette, sheets and night clothes act like a wick allowing flames to quickly spread across the body.

Visit the London Fire Brigade Website for more information.
