What are emollients?
Emollients are effective moisturisers that soothe, smooth and hydrate the skin, helping to keep it moist and flexible. They are helpful to manage dry, itchy or scaly skin conditions, such as eczema and psoriasis.
Emollients are the first treatment for all dry skin conditions. They come in a range of different formats (creams, lotions, ointments, skin cleansers and bath additives) and should be used generously and frequently.
Complete emollient therapy
Complete emollient therapy is the daily use of creams, ointments, bath additives and skin cleansers.
Using a combination of emollients can reduce the number of flare-ups and give effective results. For example, a cream can be used during the day and an ointment at night.
The Epaderm range is available as a cream and an ointment, for the management of dry skin conditions, including eczema and psoriasis.
