The waterless shampoo is being used for those patients who cannot take a bath or shower or would
find it too distressing to do so. The feedback from the areas that use it is really positive. The staff
love using it and the patients appreciate it. All in all it improves the patient experience which was
the major driving force in introducing its use. I would certainly recommend it.

Denise Bar Palliative Team Leader, Gloucestershire Hospitals: We thought the shampoo was really
useful! I would like some more for our community team now.
Tina at the Royal Shrewsbury, Orthopaedics: I find Nilaqua Shampoo really easy to use & effective,
I washed a patient this morning and they commented that they felt better for it. We really like the
smell and it saves so much time. Especially with patients who are less mobile and cannot bend their
Helen Brooke Ward Sister, Gloucestershire Hospitals: We love the shampoo!
Liz Dunningham, Palliative Care Sister, Musgrove Hospital. Further to our conversation today I am happy to confirm that I have used the waterless shampoo samples provided to wash several patients’ hair. The product is easy to use, has a pleasant smell and left hair feeling and looking clean. It is ideal to use on bedbound patients. It would be a useful product for us to stock.
Sophia Murove, Ward Sister, Royal Buckingham Hospital: The Nilaqua is brilliant!
I just wanted to update you about our trial of your products on the Coronary Care Unit at the Royal United Hospital in Bath. The outcome is very positive after speaking to staff and patients. Our facilities on CCU for washing patients hair is limited as there are only sinks and these are in the general use areas and the showers are on the next ward. Logistics is one issue but the other is patient safety. Our patients are cardiac monitored and this can limit the use of a shower, if they are able. We found the use of the shampoo suited the needs of our patients and was time efficient.
