Aluminium Chloride, the active ingredient in Gel Astringente, is a powerful astringent, anti-itching and antimicrobial, so its applications in the dermatological field are many, some of the main ones being:
It acts by neutralising the toxins released by the jellyfish, stopping the burning and itching.
Mosquitoes, Bees, Wasps and Insects
It quickly relieves itching, pain and burning in the case of insect bites and stings, e.g., from mosquitoes, wasps, bees and ticks, by preventing scratching from causing skin infection.
When applied immediately after the bite/sting, it prevents swelling from forming.
Alluminium Chloride and Alcohol are also used to absorb water and skin exudates by drying blisters or boils and to control excessive sweating in the hands and feet.
