Atopy skin barrier cream

Atopy skin barrier cream

EpiCeram Skin Barrier Emulsion is a prescription medical device cream designed to repair the damaged skin barrier of atopic dermatitis patients. The cream is a ceramide-dominant, lipid-based, first-line treatment that provides an optimal 3:1:1 ratio of ceramides, free fatty acids, and cholesterol. EpiCeram works by creating a vapor-permeable barrier, replenishing physiologic lipids, enriching the ceramide content of skin cells, and normalizing the skin’s pH. By repairing the skin barrier, the cream may decrease the need for corticosteroids and immunomodulators. It has shown efficacy comparable to a midpotent corticosteroid in a clinical trial.
