Can Epaderm products be used as a soap?

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) recommends washing with emollients rather than detergents or soaps, as these can increase water loss from the skin. Using Epaderm Cream or Ointment as a skin cleanser helps ensure that dry skin can be properly washed, without losing additional moisture.

Dispense or scoop a small amount onto your hand, rub hands together under warm water and then use as a normal soap. You will notice it Epaderm products do not foam, but does leave your hands clean.
