What is Epaderm Cream used for?
Epaderm Ointment 500g is a 3-in-1 emollient, bath additive and skin cleanser for the treatment of eczema, psoriasis and other dry skin conditions. It contains no fragrances, colourings or additives.
Epaderm Ointment 500g can also be used as a soap substitute to prevent drying of the skin, or as a moisturising bath additive, or as a normal moisturiser. It works by creating a layer of oil on the surface of the skin and preventing water evaporation from the surface of the skin to help treat eczema, psoriasis, and other dry conditions.
Epaderm Ointment 500g is made from powerful ingredients for intense hydration.
