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.
