  • What Is Radiaderm R1 & R2™?
    R1 & R2 is a two-step skin care system to defend your skin during and after radiotherapy. R1 is a Cooling Gel and R2 is a Soothing Lotion. R1 & R2 was developed to provide defence against the skin effects of radiotherapy. It also provides relief and protection for your skin while improving comfort throughout radiation treatment. R1 & R2 helps to provide defence from Day 1 of radiation treatment, before any skin changes are visible.
  • How Does R1 Cooling Gel Work?
    R1 Cooling Gel is Step 1 of the system and provides intense hydration to your skin. It will also provide cooling relief for skin discomfort and irritation that may occur. Directions: Apply a generous layer to the affected area each day following your radiotherapy. It is best to apply the gel as soon as it is reasonably practical for you. Do not rub into skin. The gel is most effective when applied in a thick layer and allowed to remain in contact with the skin for a minimum of 20 minutes. Any residue may be gently removed.
  • How Does R2 Soothing Lotion Work?
    R2 Soothing Lotion is Step 2 of the system and adds needed moisture throughout the day and night. It contains Lactokine, which helps build the skin’s defense, so that skin can recover faster. R2 Soothing Lotion also contains both UVA/UVB stabilisers that reinforce the skin’s natural barrier by helping to defend the formation of free radicals caused by UV exposure, sun exposure should be limited as much as possible. Directions: Apply to skin 3-4 times a day including at night-time. Apply sparingly and evenly. Re-apply after towel drying, swimming, or sweating.
