Highly effective emollient range developed by dermatologists for dry skin, eczema and psoriasis. Water-free formulation, ideal for the driest skin and night time use Originally developed by dermatologists at the Royal Victoria Inﬁrmary, Newcastle.
Epaderm Ointment is a 3-in-1 emollient for the management of dry skin conditions, including eczema and psoriasis. 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.
Ointments are effective, however, they can feel greasy and may not be cosmetically acceptable all of the time. They are highly effective on dry skin when used at night for long-term moisturisation.
Epaderm Ointment as an emollient
Epaderm Ointment provides a barrier to help soothe the skin. Emollients are not steroids so you can use as much as you need. It should be applied generously and frequently even when the skin has improved.
…and as a skin cleanser
Using Epaderm as a skin cleaner helps ensure that dry skin can be properly washed without losing additional moisture, or having to deal with the problems that common soap additives might produce.
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.
Epaderm Ointment is suitable for:
- Suitable for dry skin
- Applicable for all ages, including babies
Emollient: apply Epaderm Ointment directly on the skin in the direction of hair growth. This will reduce the risk of blocking hair follicles.
Cleanser: scoop a small amount from the tub, lather under warm water and then use as a normal soap.
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.
