About Epaderm Cream  

Epaderm is an emollient cream, formulated by Mölnlycke Health Care with clinically proven ingredients. Epaderm can be used to both protect skin and as a soap replacement.

Epaderm creates a film barrier over the skin. This acts to keep delicate or damaged skin protected from further irritation, while also locking moisture into the skin. This keeps the skin fresh and allows it to heal naturally.

Epaderm is designed for sensitive skin - it is free of fragrances, colourings and SLS (sodium lauryl sulphate).

Use Epaderm to relieve the symptoms of dry skin, eczema, psoriasis and other dry skin conditions. Epaderm is safe for daily use.

FAQ

What is Epaderm Cream used for?

Epaderm Cream is designed to protect and nourish skin. Epaderm creates a film barrier around skin when applied, sticking closely to skin and forming a thin, protective layer. This barrier layer has two main functions. 

Firstly, it protects irritated skin from further irritation. This gives irritated skin the chance to heal naturally. Second, this barrier helps to lock in moisture, revitalising dry skin and allowing cracked skin the chance to rehydrate and heal.

Can washing my hands cause dry skin?

Your skin creates its own barrier layer - a combination of natural oils secreted by your skin. Washing your hands can strip this layer away, and lead to dry, chapped skin. A barrier cream like Epaderm, applied directly after washing your hands, can help to reinstate the skin’s protective barrier, and prevent skin from drying out.

Can you use Epaderm on your face?

Yes. Some creams for dry skin may contain steroids and other ingredients which can cause damage to the more delicate skin on your face and other areas. Epaderm is suitable for any part of your body, allowing you to tackle dry skin conditions wherever they may crop up. Please read the Directions tab for more information on how much Epaderm to use on your face.

Side Effects

Epaderm Cream Side Effects

As with all medications, some users may experience side effects when using Epaderm Cream - however, most will not.

The most common side effect appears to be skin irritation in people with a known allergy to one or more of the ingredients. This is rare, but take care to read the Ingredients tabe before using this product.

If you are using any other topical creams, do not apply them after this product, as the barrier it forms may cause your other medications to become diluted. Wait at least 30 minutes between applying this product and any other topical treatment.

If you experience any side effects, including ones not listed here, speak to your doctor or health care professional.
