Epimax® Ointment feels soft, and rubs easily into the skin. It leaves a protective barrier to seal water into the skin, leaving it feeling plump, soft and moist.
Epimax® Ointment contains no preservatives, colourings or fragrances and is particularly suitable for sensitive dry skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis
Epimax® Ointment can be used as an emollient directly on the skin, as a bath additive and as a skin cleanser in the shower or bath.
On the skin
Apply Epimax® Ointment to the affected skin area and smooth gently onto the skin in the direction of the hair growth
As a skin cleanser
You can use Epimax® Ointment as a skin cleanser without losing additional skin moisture.
Scoop a small amount from the tub, lather under warm water and then use as you would for a normal soap.
In the bath
Soaking in the bath can dry your skin. Adding Epimax® Ointment to the bath can prevent the skin from drying by creating a thin film over the skin, preventing moisture loss.
To use in the bath, take 4g (about the size of a £2 coin) from the tub. Melt this in a tumbler of hot water, ensuring it has cooled sufficiently before adding to the bath.
Do not apply hot water directly to the skin. When using Epimax® Ointment as a bath additive, care should be taken, as it will make the surface of the bath slippery.
Epimax® ointment leaves your skin feeling soft and moist, and is gentle on the skin. It is suitable for all age ranges, including babies.
Epimax® Ointment is available in 125g and 500g tubs and can be prescribed by your Dermatologist, Doctor or Nurse Prescriber. It can also be ordered without a prescription from any pharmacy or bought over the counter without prescription.
