EP 2381925 A1 (text from WO2010072422A1)

The present invention related to the use of a pharmaceutical composition which is esentially free of pharmaceutically active ingredients for the treatment of human skin, especially in the treatment of rosacea, acne, atopic dermatitis, contact dermatitis, perioral dermatitis, psoriasis or neurodermitis.

It has now been found, that surprisingly a foamable composition which is essentially free of pharmaceutically active ingredients, consisting of

(a) at least one emollient,

(b) at least one stabilizer,

(c) at least one preservative,

(d) at least one emulsifier,

(e) at least one foam stabilizer,

(f) at least one moisturizer together with a propellant, can be used for the treatment of human skin especially for the treatment of rosacea, acne, atopic dermatitis, contact dermatitis, perioral dermatitis, psoriasis or neurodermitis.
Makes me think of Promiseb cream which has no active ingredients, but is prescription only, non steroidal cream.
