Key Actives


Quercetin is one of nature’s most potent anti-inflammatory agent found in plants. It acts like an anti-histamine and can offer relief to those struggling with sensitive skin. It also helps the skin recover from stress related aging and eczema by suppressing excessive cortisol over the long term. In the long term, cortisol reduces our immune system ability to fight microbes and thins the skin barrier, which contribute to exacerbating factors to eczema.

High Molecular Weight Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid is a polysaccharide naturally found in our skin, and is key for water retention. EpicDermis Relief Cream uses high molecular weight hyaluronic acid, which are anti-inflammatory versus low molecular weight hyaluronic acid, which are proinflammatory.


Ceramides are lipids that make up about 30%-40% of our epidermis and a key to a strong skin barrier. And impaired skin barrier leads to water loss and increase susceptibility to environmental allergens.


Panthenol is provitamin B6 and is important for cell turnover and fibroblast proliferation. It also acts as a moisturiser when applied on the skin.


Allantoin is a metabolic intermediate with skin soothing properties and promotes cell regeneration in irritated, or damaged skin.


Zinc has anti-microbial and neutralizing properties help alleviate skin irritations and support faster wound healing. Zinc provides mild UV and sun protection.

Base Formulation

The base can make up over 90% of the total formulation and is as critical as the actives present. EpicDermis Relief Cream base formulation is hypoallergenic-tested, free of parabens and common additives that tend to sensitive eczema-prone skin, and uses nourishing food-grade sunflower oil and aloe vera for high intensity use in eczema sufferers. Patent pending.

What causes eczema?

Eczema is a skin condition that arises from two main factors:

  • A weak skin barrier that does not store moisture well and permit microbes and allergens to enter.
  • A dysfunctional or overreactive immune response to microbes and allergens (triggers).

One notable molecule, histamine, released by our immune system in response to triggers, makes the skin itchy and inflamed, thus worsening eczema. Histamine levels naturally rise whilst we sleep, which is why the itch may be worse at night.

The above two factors mean that extra steps are required to moisturise the skin, manage microbial balance and limit exposure to allergens.

What are cortisteroids and why can their prolonged use be harmful?

Cortisteroids are drugs commonly used reduce inflammation and manage eczema. When used appriopiately, they help eczema patients recover faster and protect skin health. They closely resemble our cortisol, our own molecule naturally produced in times of stress.

Although cortisol and cortisteroids are anti-inflammatory, prolonged use can suppress our immune system's ability to fight microbes and increase dysfunction. In fact, sharp spikes of cortisol from stress have been found to trigger eczema, and prolonged high cortisol levels are harmful for general health and increase heart disease. Both cortisol and cortisteroids increase elastin degradation in our skin, thereby weakening the skin barrier and causing early skin aging.

Why does eczema return when I stop cortisteroids?

The constant need of cortisteroids usually means that there are unresolved issues in relation to one or both of the factors: the presence of allergens and microbes above the threshold that eczema patient can handle; improper moisturization. Here are some things to consider:

  • Eczema patients are prone to chronic microbial infections, particularly from the bacterium Staphylococcus aureus. Bacterial infections can be resolved with antibiotics. Seek advise from a doctor if you suspect you have an infection.
  • Eczema patients are often allergic or intolerant to various factors. A skin prick test or radioallergosorbent test (RAST) may help identify environmental and food allergens.
  • Presence of allergens or sensitisers in the moisturiser, hence after even after intense moisturization, the skin remains dry and inflamed.

How can Epicdermis Relief Cream help me (or my child)?

Moisturisers contain many additives to keep water and oil together, and preservatives to stop them from spoiling. Unfortunately, a portion of eczema patients are also allergenic or sensitive to these additives and preservatives. This is why certain eczema patients resort to waterless butters or oils. However, as eczema patients are unable to store moisture properly in this skin, creams or balms with both oil and water are still considered most beneficial. Epicdermis Relief Cream uses a novel technology that enables us to be free of these additives and preservatives.

Epicdermis Relief Cream also uses quercetin [1], one of nature's most powerful anti-histamine and cortisol regulator. Epicdermis Relief Cream uses only high molecular weight hyaluronic acid which are anti-inflammatory, versus low molecular weight hyaluronic acid, which are pro-inflammatory [2][3]
