Soaking in the bath can dry your skin. Adding Epimax Ointment to the bath can prevent the skin from drying by creating a thin film over the skin, preventing moisture loss.

Do not apply hot water directly to the skin. When using Epimax Ointment as a bath additive, care should be taken, as it will make the surface of the bath slippery.
Epimax ointment leaves your skin feeling soft and moist, and is gentle on the skin. It is suitable for all age ranges, including babies.
Apply to skin as frequently as required, smoothing gently into the affected areas in the direction of hair growth. Can also be used as a soap substitute or bath additive.
