  1. My 3 week old baby had a rash on his face & body which the doctor said was baby acne & that it was nothing to worry about. I on the other hand thought it was eczema and got my mom to send me a product called Epizone E which contains Cetomacrogol. I started using the Epizone E 4 weeks ago and my baby is now 10 weeks old & his skin is completely clear. No more bumps or dry skin, his skin is as soft as a baby’s bottom. Hope this helps others. Happy mom and most important a happy baby.

  2. My 2month old was prescribed Epizone E for her dry skin. It works like a charm. I use Epizone A to bath her with then apply Epizone E after baths. It has no parabens, fragrance or colourants which is great. I also use it as a daily moisturizer
    - and I’ll never use anything else.

  3. I was prescribed cetomacrogol cream for an undiagnosed skin rash. I used it as a moisturiser and body wash. The rash kept coming back but whenever I applied the cream, it does visibly calm the rash down and helps with the itching.

  4. Both my 11 month old and 4 year old girl has terrible eczema. Terrible flare up. Even thou I’d occasionally use steroids. When I started using EpizoneE the flare ups frequency became less. But the trick is to use it even if there’s no eczema. Daily as emollient or soap…… In winter as emollient.
