Epimax Cream Information
What is Epimax Original Cream used for?
Epimax Original Cream provides light relief from eczema and psoriasis as well as other mild skin conditions that cause dry or flaky skin. The skin soothing cream moisturises, protects and heals, leaving the skin feeling soft and hydrated. Epimax Cream can also be used in the bath or shower as a body wash or a soap substitute
How does Epimax Cream work?
Epimax Cream uses an emollient formulation relying primarily on soft paraffin (also known as petroleum jelly) to form a protective barrier over the skin, preventing moisture from escaping. Because it’s mild and light, it’s ideal for regular use as an all-purpose skincare product, mixing with — or standing in for — soap and shower gel.
