Hill has remained true to its commitment to dermatology and skin health. The foundation of Hill’s prescription dermatology products are its vehicles, also known as product base formulations without any active medication ingredients. Our vehicles contain refined peanut oil and have been shown to keep moisture in the skin, supporting the effectiveness of Hill’s prescription drug products indicated for chronic, dry skin conditions. This has been demonstrated in clinical studies for Derma-Smoothe/FS (comparing the prescription drug to its vehicle) and is reflected in the acceptance of — and loyalty to — Hill’s products by prescribers and patients alike.
For this reason, we have introduced a Consumer Line of skin moisturizers based on our product vehicles that have been used as placebo comparisons in clinical studies. Visit the online store here.
