Alternative uses for Epaderm Ointment
- Using Epaderm Ointment as a skin cleanser - when caring for dry skin conditions, it is vital to ensure that moisturisation is carried out wherever possible. However, it is equally important that no soaps or products containing detergents are used as they will increase water loss from the skin. Using Epaderm Ointment as a skin cleanser ensures that dry skin can be properly washed, without losing additional moisture or having to deal with the problems that common soap additives might produce. Scoop a small amount from the tub, lather under warm water and then use as a normal soap.
- Using Epaderm Ointment in the bath soaking the skin in an emollient, for optimum rehydration, is another key step of complete emollient therapy. As Epaderm Ointment contains no fragrances, colourings or additives, baths can be taken as often as required. Take 4g 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 Epaderm Ointment as a bath additive, care should be taken, as it will make the surface of the bath slippery.
