    Description:

    Epaderm Ointment is a highly effective emollient developed specifically by Dermatologists and prescribed by GP’s to manage all dry skin conditions.

    The unique Epaderm formula offers three aspects of complete emollient therapy in one for the management of eczema, psoriaisis and dry skin conditions. It can be used on the skin, as a bath additive or as a skin cleanser.

    Epaderm Ointment creates a barrier which aids moisture retention within the skin as well as helping to soothe the skin and reduce the itch. Epaderm Ointment contains only 3 ingredients, and is free from steroids, SLS, fragrances and colourings making it kinder to already sensitive skin.

    Ointments, like Epaderm, are the most effective emollient. However, they can feel greasy and may not be cosmetically acceptable all of the time. They are highly effective on very dry or cracked skin when used at night for long-term moisturisation.

    Epaderm Ointment is suitable for all ages, including babies.

     

    Instructions for use of Epaderm:

    Using Epaderm Ointment as an emollient

    Epaderm provides an excellent film barrier to help soothe the skin. Emollients are not steroids so you can use as much of it as you need. It should be applied generously and frequently – even when the skin has improved.

    Directions: apply Epaderm Ointment directly on the skin in the direction of the hair growth. This will reduce the risk of blocking hair follicles.

     

    Epaderm Ointment as a skin cleanser

    Using Epaderm as a skin cleanser ensures that dry skin can be properly washed without losing additional moisture, or having to deal with the problems that common soap additives might produce.

    Directions: scoop a small amount from the tub, lather under warm water and then use as a normal soap.

     

    Epaderm Ointment as a bath additive

    Soaking the skin in an emollient for optimum rehydration is another key step of complete emollient therapy. When using Epaderm as a bath additive, care should be taken, as it will make the surface of the bath slippery.

    Directions: take 4g from the tub. Melt this in a tumbler of hot water, ensuring it has cooled sufficiently before adding to the bath. Do not apply hot water directly to the skin.
