Epaderm Cream as an emollient
Epaderm Cream can be applied immediately after washing to counteract the loss of essential oils from the skin. It should be applied generously and frequently – even when the skin has improved.
Directions: apply Epaderm Cream directly onto the skin in the direction of hair growth, so as to reduce the risk of blocking hair follicles.
As a skin cleanser
When caring for dry skin conditions, The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) recommends washing with emollients rather than detergents or soaps, as these can increase water loss from the skin. Using Epaderm Cream as a skin cleanser ensures that dry skin can be properly washed, without additional moisture loss.
Directions: place a small amount onto your hand, lather under warm water, and then use it as a normal soap.
