Epaderm Ointment is a highly effective 3-in-1 emollient that provides complete emollient therapy for all dry skin conditions in just 1 product. Developed by dermatologists and used by GP’s, Epaderm Ointment contains only 3 ingredients and is used for the management of eczema, psoriaisis and dry skin conditions.
The unique Epaderm formula offers three aspects of complete emollient therapy in one. 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 is highly versatile and free from 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.
Using as an emollient: Apply Epaderm Ointment directly on the skin in the direction of the hair growth. This will reduce the risk of blocking hair follicles.
Using as a skin cleanser: Scoop a small amount from the tub, lather under warm water and then use as a normal soap.
Using as a bath additive: Take 4g (about the size of a £2 coin) 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. When using Epaderm as a bath additive, care should be taken, as it will make the surface of the bath slippery.
