Epaderm Cream – Because Eczema Doesn’t Just Happen at Home

Any chronic dry skin sufferer in the UK will know that while the big, pump tub of emollients, available on the NHS, is a life-saver in the bathroom at home; it is not so convenient for travel. It’s hard to keep a four-year-old to a treatment plan against eczema at home never mind trying to stick to it abroad.

Family Holidays are essential but The National Eczema Society warns that active kids can overheat which causes irritation and flare ups.  Chlorine from swimming pools is a well-known eczema trigger. The stress of travelling, changes in temperature and air conditioning also play havoc with sensitive skin too. Epaderm Cream, eczema and psoriasis treatment clinically proven to significantly improve skin hydration and smoothness after two weeks has now launched a handy ‘on-the-go’ 150g size bottle.  Perfect for families on holidays.

The smaller size of NEW Epaderm Cream, the highly effective emollient developed by dermatologists, is welcomed by experts:

I am confident that this new size of NEW Epaderm Cream will be a welcome addition for the many people throughout the UK who regularly use an emollient on a daily basis to manage their dry skin conditions and are looking for a convenient option to keep up their regime when they are out and about,” comments Barbara Page MBE, Dermatology Nurse Advisor and Chair of the Psychodermatology sub group of the British Dermatological Nursing Group (BDNG).

NHS guidelines suggest that a 150g bottle is a perfect size for a week away for adults who suffer from eczema on both arms or both legs. The new 150g bottle still features the ‘pump’ application of its larger tubs, in a convenient ‘on-the-go’ size.

NEW Epaderm Cream 150g ensures those with dry, sensitive or itchy skin can relieve and care for their skin at all times; exercising, swimming, working and travelling without worrying. Epaderm emollient is the number 1 brand recommended by doctors for the treatment of dry skin conditions including eczema and psoriasis. Epaderm Cream is free from fragrance, colouring and sodium lauryl sulfates (SLS).

 “We specifically developed the new ‘on-the-go’ 150g Epaderm Cream to be able to offer people living with dry skin conditions a convenient choice for their holiday suitcase, handbags, gym bags or even their festival backpacks,” said Kieran Gormley, Epaderm Marketing Manager, Molnlycke.


The new Epaderm Cream 150g is currently available in Boots and Superdrug stores with a recommended retail price of £6.99. Epaderm Cream 50g and 500g and Epaderm Ointment in 125g, 500g and 1kg sizes, are available on prescription and also in most pharmacies throughout the UK.
