Developed by dermatologists, Epaderm products were made for your sensitive skin, so you can feel confident that your skin is in the best hands whenever it needs a little love and care.

 

Epaderm Cream or Epaderm Ointment?

 

When you’re managing your dry skin, you’re probably wondering whether you should be using an Epaderm emollient cream, an ointment, or both!

 

Although Epaderm Ointments and Creams can both be used to soothe dry skin as a topical treatment or as a cleanser to replace harsh soaps or bath additives, your choice will lie in the condition of your own skin.

 

If you have dry or sensitive skin and are looking for an everyday way to manage dry skin conditions, Epaderm Cream will help you to keep your skin feeling hydrated without leaving behind a greasy residue.

 

When you have a flare-up and your skin becomes very dry or cracked, then turn to Epaderm Ointment for protection from irritants as your skin heals and rehydrates.

Can I use an emollient in place of soaps?

Some emollients can be used as cleansers, either for their hands or as body washes in the bath or shower.

 

This helps them to avoid using soaps, which can aggravate some dry skin conditions such as eczema or dermatitis.

 

There are also some emollients that can be used in your bath water in place of bubble baths, bath salts, or other products so you can protect your sensitive skin there too.

 

 

However, if you do choose to use an emollient in the bath or shower, bear in mind that it can make your bath or shower slippery.

 

You should take extra care not to slip after using an emollient bathing product and should clean your bath or shower properly afterwards to help to prevent yourself or others from falling.

Can I use emollients for my child?

Children who suffer from eczema or other dry skin conditions like psoriasis or dermatitis can use eczema to ease their symptoms.

 

Both Oilatum and Epaderm have Junior emollient ranges which are designed to soothe and protect children’s sensitive skin.

 

However, not every product will be child friendly, so you should speak to your doctor or Chemist4U pharmacist before using a new emollient on your child for the first time.

How can emollients help me to manage dry skin and eczema?

Emollients and moisturisers help to ease your eczema symptoms by hydrating your skin, helping to keep your skin soft and controlling your flare-ups.

 

Emollients work by forming a protective layer over your skin which helps to keep moisture from escaping, hydrating your skin from the inside out.

 

Some emollients also contain ingredients which can protect your skin from irritants like soap or detergents, taking a two-pronged approach to managing your eczema flare-ups.

How do emollients work?

Emollients work by forming a thin protective layer over the skin.

 

This layer doesn’t just help to keep moisture locked into your skin, hydrating it from the inside, but it helps to protect the skin from outside irritants.

 

It’s effectively a two in one method of keeping your skin protected and hydrated as you manage your dry skin condition.
