Description

Epaderm Cream is a light cream with a non-greasy formulation making it perfect for use during the day because of its quick absorption time.

The formulation is applicable for all ages and you can even use Epaderm Cream for babies. Epaderm is useful both as a skin moisturiser to soften the skin and as a skin cleanser to replace regular soaps and detergents, which tend to have a drying effect on the skin.

Emollients like Epaderm Cream create a barrier on the skin that holds the moisture in. Use Epaderm Cream as part of your daily routine to soothe and relieve itchy skin and avoid moisture loss.

Epaderm Cream contains no colourings or fragrances and is free from sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) making it gentle for delicate and sensitive skin such as psoriasis. Epaderm emollient cream contains a minimum of sensitisers and ingredients, which makes it less likely to cause skin irritation.

Emollients should be applied frequently and even when the skin has improved.

Directions

The Epaderm emollient cream can be applied to wet or dry skin. When used on dry skin, apply the cream directly onto the skin in the direction of the hair growth to lower the risk of blocking hair follicles.

When used on wet skin as part of your daily showering routine, use Epaderm Cream as a normal soap by putting a small amount in your hand and lather in warm water before applying to the skin.

Precautions

Epaderm Cream should not be used if you have known allergy or sensitivity to any of the ingredients. Stop using the emollient if you believe to have experienced an allergic reaction.

Epaderm emollient cream is not harmful for pregnant or breastfeeding mothers. However, always consult with your doctor before using the product if you are pregnant.

Side Effects

People hypersensitive to any of the ingredients may experience skin irritation. Check the list of ingredients before use.

Scientific Research

For people with Psoriasis

Epaderm Cream contains glycerin that occurs naturally in the skin. Glycerin helps attract water from the deeper skin layer and bind water in the skin and thereby provide a moisturising effect (1).

Further, the product contains yellow soft paraffin and liquid paraffin, which are known to help prevent water evaporating from the skin surface. Water evaporation is increased in psoriasis compared with normal skin (2).

Lastly, the experts at HelloSkin did not find any clinical data on the benefits of Epaderm Cream specifically on psoriatic lesions.

For people with Eczema

HelloSkin’s experts did not find any clinical data on the benefits of Epaderm Cream in people with atopic dermatitis. However, the product contains glycerine which occurs naturally in the skin.

Glycerin helps attract water from the deeper skin layer and bind water in the skin and thereby provide a moisturising effect (1). In atopic dermatitis, and other dry skin conditions, there is a decrease in the water content of the upper layer of the skin which is linked to a reduced function of the skin barrier (3). This disruption makes the skin more susceptible to external environmental factors such as irritants and bacteria, and can worsen the condition and lead to further itching, scratching and inflammation (4).

Also, the products contains white soft paraffin and liquid paraffin, which are known to help prevent water from evaporating from the skin surface. In atopic dermatitis both glycerol and paraffin have been shown to restore barrier functions, improve skin hydration and reduce skin dryness and eczema severity (5, 6)
