Back in 2016, we partnered with Neubourg Skin Care to bring a new urea based foot foam cream to the UK market – GlucoRx Allpresan®- . There are now thousands of patients with diabetes regularly using GlucoRx Allpresan as part of their daily regimen to reduce the risks of them developing a diabetic foot ulcers, So what exactly is it that makes our foam so great?

Why Foam?

While urea-based products are highly effective at preventing calluses (dry skin) on the feet of patients with diabetes, one of the main problems with some of these creams and lotions is that they can make the foot feel oily / greasy which in turn increases the risks of slips

GlucoRx Allpresan® is a unique foam-based product which, delivers intense moisture deep into the skin without leaving wetness on the surface.

Its patented technology means that unlike other creams / ointments GlucoRx Allpresan can be safely applied between the toes if required.

An Urgent Need for Improved Foot Care

Here at GlucoRx, we realised that there was an urgent need for a highly effective, low-risk solution to dry feet in patients with Diabetes, which is why we chose to expand our product range to include GlucoRx Allpresan®.

The importance of foot care is often overlooked, yet it’s one of the simplest ways to improve the quality of life of the diabetes population.

Considering that skin ulcers are a leading cause of lower limb amputations in people with diabetes, and that there are around 7000 of these amputations in England every year according to Diabetes UK. With only half of amputees with diabetes surviving more than two years after the procedure — a mortality rate much worse than many forms of cancer — something has to be done.

And that’s where GlucoRx Allpresan® comes in. By making safe and effective dry skin solutions available to people with Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes, we’re helping GlucoRx users to take control of their own health to prevent long term complications with their feet.
