The Epimax skincare range offers a variety of products specifically designed to address the needs of individuals with dry, sensitive, or eczema-prone skin. As we age, our skin loses the protective properties of collagen and elastin, leading to increased dryness. Therefore, the elderly can benefit greatly from the Epimax range as well. Developed by experienced pharmacists and dermatologists, this range includes creams, ointments, gels, and other formulations, available in different pack sizes. With a focus on gentle and effective skincare, Epimax products are formulated to provide relief and moisture to the skin.

Doctor’s advice

Epimax Ointment: The Ultimate Moisturiser

Among the range of Epimax products, the ointment stands out as the most moisturising option due to its dense and high paraffin base. This formulation offers intense hydration and is particularly beneficial for individuals with severely dry or eczema-prone skin or other dry skin-related problems. The ointment is fragrance-free and contains minimal ingredients to ensure it is gentle and soothing.

Consistent and regular use of Epimax ointment can effectively repair dry skin. Depending on the severity of the condition, it is recommended to apply the ointment up to four times a day to maximise its efficacy. The versatility of Epimax ointment allows it to be used as a moisturiser, bath additive, wash or skin cleanser. However, it should be noted that ointments can feel greasy and may not be cosmetically suitable for all occasions, as they tend to transfer easily onto clothes and can be extremely flammable.

Who Can Benefit from Epimax Ointment?

Epimax ointment is specifically designed to target individuals with inflamed, irritated, or dry skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. However, its effectiveness and gentle nature make it suitable for anyone seeking deep hydration and skin nourishment. Additionally, children with sensitive skin or those needing moisture replenishment from activities like swimming can also benefit from this ointment. It can even be used as a replacement for soap to hydrate skin that typically becomes dry after showering.

Epimax Cream: Balancing Hydration and Spreadability

Epimax cream is a mild moisturiser designed for dry areas. It contains a lower concentration of paraffin compared to other creams, striking a balance between hydration and spreadability. While not as easily spread as a lotion, it is effective for small areas that require targeted moisturisation.

Who Can Benefit from Epimax Cream?

Epimax cream, like other products in the range, is primarily intended for individuals with inflamed, irritated, or dry skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. However, its gentle and effective formula makes it suitable for anyone seeking hydration and relief from dry, itchy skin. Elderly individuals experiencing age-related dryness and children with sensitive skin or a need for moisture replenishment can also benefit from using Epimax cream.

Epimax Isomol Gel: Intense Hydration for Dry Areas

Among the range of Epimax products, the Isomol gel provides exceptional moisturisation for dry areas of the skin. Although it is slightly greasy and requires more effort to spread compared to a lotion, it offers superior hydration compared to the Epimax cream.

Considerations and Side Effects

Epimax products are generally well-tolerated, but it is important to note a few considerations and potential side effects. Individuals allergic to any of the listed ingredients, such as paraffin, should avoid using Epimax products. Furthermore, Epimax should not be applied to fresh burns.

It is crucial to exercise caution when using Epimax products due to their flammable nature. Avoid open flames as the highly flammable paraffin or ingredients in the gel can transfer onto clothing or bedding.

In some cases, Epimax products may cause allergic or sensitivity reactions, including burning, stinging, itchiness, and redness of the application area. If these symptoms occur, discontinue use, wash the area with mild soap and water, or gently wipe away the product with a towel. Seek medical advice if necessary.
