Epionce’s philosophy is to calm the skin, anti-inflammation. This little one’s mama has been a client with us and asked for our help when she realized her baby’s skin was being compromised and what the doctor recommended was NOT working. Epionce’s Renewal Calming Cream was the super-hero to the skin!

One of the most common questions I get asked is, “Why didn’t my pediatrician recommend this first instead of Aquaphor?” Aquaphor is a mass-produced product sold in every drugstore, super store & grocery store. It is easy for people to access and is an inexpensive product. It acts more like a skin barrier rather than a skin healer. Staying up to date with the best skin care products is not exactly part of a pediatricians’ job either.

Let’s Take a Look Further: Look at the back of the products! The ingredient list in Aquaphor: mineral oil, ceresin, lanolin alcohol, panthenol, glycerin, bisabolol. Why is it important to look? The ingredient list states the amount of ingredients in the product from the highest percentage (mineral oil) to the least. Mineral Oil is a comedogenic (pore clogging) ingredient; this does not let the skin breathe.  It is very hard to seep into the skin. It puts a barrier on the skin, not letting any other ingredients to penetrate.

Renewal Calming Cream contains colloidal (medical grade) oatmeal. This relieves symptoms of eczema such as itching, redness, and dryness. Skin conditions like eczema need to be replenished and hydrated. The skin cannot be soothed or healed if the skin cannot absorb it.

Key ingredients like Meadow Foam extract,a natural skin hydrator that will give and keep the skin healthy and hydrated. Safflower Seed oilrich in fatty acids, naturally hydrating to the skin and calms redness.Rose Canina Fruit Oil helps reduce irritation, rich in antioxidants, minerals and vitamin C. White Water Lily Extract usesanti-inflammatory properties to calm and soothe the skin along with skin healing.

While using products like Aquaphor may not be truly harmful, but it is not benefiting the skin.Renewal calming cream is a multi-use product used forpost-procedure, eczema, and dry, sensitive or compromised skin.

Advice:Take the time to look at the back of products andask your skin expert about products! Do the research, see the science. Find out if there are clinical trials and where the products are being sold.Professional is always best; it means the products are purer and more potent.
