Chlorinated pools can often be a trigger for eczema sufferers; the high pH of a pool disrupts skin’s protective lipid barrier which exacerbates eczema causing irritation and itching.

EpiCeram® is packed with essential lipids to help repair the skin barrier. It’s also formulated with a pH of 5 to help normalize skin’s pH, which is naturally in the 5.0-6.0 range, and can act to balance the negative effects of swimming in chlorinated pools.
