The information on Orbis’s site is a guide only.
The content of Orbis’s site is not intended to:

Usefulness of Orbis’s site
Orbis’s site is designed and written to provide an initial and useful general practical explanation of a range of common skin conditions with possible management product options. Bearing in mind the uniqueness of every person it is not feasible to set out in detail every common skin condition which might apply in each particular case. While Orbis’s site may offer information about a particular problem Orbis cannot confirm that that problem is what the user has nor the right product in the circumstances. It is imperative to seek advice from the appropriate health care professional especially when a condition does not respond to treatment within a reasonable length of time.
The information on Orbis’s site is offered on the terms and understanding that neither Orbis nor Orbis’s directors and Orbis site’s authors are responsible for the results of any actions taken on the basis of the information or for any error or omission in the information. No person including medical practitioners, pharmacists and nurses should act solely on the basis of the information on Orbis’s site. Changes to knowledge may occur quickly and further each per-son is different and responds to treatment differently.
As a guide a milder product should be used initially, gradually increasing the therapeutic strength of the product used, if necessary.
Occasionally, product improvements require change and the products may change without notice.
Orbis endeavours to provide a convenient and functional site. However, Orbis does not warrant the content will be error free or that the site or the server that operates it are free of viruses or other harmful components.
If your use of Orbis’s site results in the need for servicing or replacing property, material, equipment or data, Orbis will not be responsible for such costs.
