Tip of the month from Epionce


Simple. Effective. Proven

Epionce skincare range was created by top US Dermatologist Dr. Carl Thornfeldt M.D. who is the CEO and founder of Episciences Inc. who manufacture the Epionce range in the US.

Dr Thornfeldt has over 25 years of skin research experience and has numerous scientific publications and textbooks to his name. He has been named as one of the top 50 doctors in the U.S. and the only doctor specialising in dermatology to appear on the list.

To quote Dr. Thornfeldt:

“As a doctor, I use Epionce to optimise skin care regimes in order to maximise the improvements in the client’s skin.  I have spent a lifetime on proving the safety and effectiveness of our products and all the clinical studies support the use of the Epionce skin care line.”

Epionce was voted the best anti-ageing skincare line in the US and is becoming one of the most popular ranges to be used by both doctors and medical aesthetic clinics in the UK.

Whilst derived from completely natural sources, Epionce is formulated with potent botanical ingredients in proven concentrations using a highly effective delivery system. All Epionce products are fragrance and Paraben free and are suitable for all skin types even the most sensitive.

Epionce skincare can be tailored to suit all skins and your doctor or therapist will provide a full consultation to provide a carefully constructed skincare regime to suit your skin.

At Woodford Medical our patients have experienced not only just how much of an effect Epionce has had on their overall skin appearance and health, but how easily applicable the products are:

"The first thing I noticed about this cream is its simply gorgeous aroma – beautiful – and set me in the happy stakes for the day. The second thing is it longevity – a little goes a long way. It also helps to reduce the appearance of lines, wrinkles and uneven skin texture and tone, and calms skin inflammation."


The Epionce System

Cleanse and Prepare

Epionce cleanse and prepare products remove skin impurities without disrupting the intercellular lipids and cells that form the natural protective barrier. The cleanse and prepare process is important not only because it removes impurities, but also because it prepares the skin to receive treatments and absorb the active ingredients of leave-on Lytic and Renewal products.


Correct and Boost

Epionce correct and boost products help reduce imperfections, smooth uneven texture, and minimize signs of skin ageing (fine lines and wrinkles, age spots, hyperpigmentation). The powerful Epionce technology allows the 

products to effectively penetrate the skin to help reduce problem skin safely. The correct and boost products specifically help reduce redness, irritation and inflammatory factors associated with acne, dermatitis, rosacea and psoriasis.


Renew and Fortify

Epionce renew and fortify products deeply penetrate through the skin barrier to reach targeted cells to strengthen, repair and fortify the skin. Daily use helps reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and hyperpigmentation while strengthening the skin barrier and reducing inflammatory factors. The result is smoother, softer, hydrated skin that functions at its optimum.


Protect and Prevent

Daily use of Epionce protect and prevent products helps to prevent premature skin ageing and helps reduce the risk of skin cancer associated with UVA/UVB exposure. Epionce sunscreens are formulated for high sun-blocking efficacy while maintaining the most elegant aesthetic qualities – smooth application and no white residue. Ideal for sensitive skin alone or under makeup.

      tested range of products by






Do you struggle with embarrassing skin conditions on the body in the forms of body acne and Keratosis pilaris (KP) ? Both conditions can manifest on various parts of the body - including the back, chest, buttocks, arms and legs.


Keratosis Pilaris (KP)

KP is a benign condition called Keratosis pilaris 

which presents as lots of little bumps on the backs of arms and thighs. It’s unclear why it happens, but it’s a result of extra keratin production in the skin.  This can be problematic and become especially vexing during the summer season. Epionce products target factors that lead to body acne and KP by clearing congested pores, strengthening and repairing the skin barrier, and controlling factors that cause inflammation and breakouts. Epionce products that work for acne help with Keratosis pilaris too!

Start by washing with Lytic Gel Cleanser every day on your arms and thighs. Then apply a few drops of Lytic Tx twice daily to really unplug pores. Follow with an application of the Renewal Enriched Body Lotion or Extreme Barrier Cream to help repair the skin barrier and stop inflammation. The Extreme Barrier Cream has additional anti-microbial properties, so if you prefer a thicker, body butter-type of consistency, we would recommend you start with this product. When the bumps have decreased, daily application of the Renewal Enriched Body Lotion or Extreme Barrier Cream, and washing with Lytic Gel Cleanser will help prevent future flare-ups.


Body Acne

Body acne is common and sometimes difficult to address, but there are some steps you can take to help prevent and mitigate the problem. I’d recommend washing in the shower with Epionce Lytic Gel Cleanser. After towel drying, spray the problem areas with Purifying Toner. This will help control bacteria and microbes that can lead to breakouts. Then apply your Lytic product on the inflamed areas, and finish with Renewal

Enriched Body Lotion to help relieve the inflammation and repair the skin barrier to prevent future breakouts. Also, be sure to shower right after a workout or outdoor summer activity to prevent sweat and bacteria from sitting on your skin. Wearing clothing made from breathable materials like cotton will help reduce irritation as well, and don’t forget to change your towels often.




Shower Dos & Don’ts

Did you know that flannels and bath sponges can be a serious breeding ground for bacteria which can contribute to the symptoms of body acne? Scrubbing skin with harsh materials like these can damage the skin barrier and lead to inflammation in the form of body acne. The solution: gently massage Epionce Lytic Gel Cleanser on the body to effectively cleanse and exfoliate pores without harsh scrubs.


Factors That Lead To Body Acne & Keratosis Pilaris


·         Microbes on the surface of the skin known to activate acne

·         Heat and sweat after workouts or outdoor summer activities

·         Waxy residue left on skin from use of fabric softeners

Men & Skin Cancer

Up until age 40, significantly more women develop mela­noma than men. After age 40, significantly more men develop melanoma than women. Overall, one in 35 men and one in 54 women will devel­op melanoma in their lifetimes. After age 50, most melanoma cancers diagnosed are in Cau­casian men over the age of 50. Men should wear sunscreen every day, regard­less of the season of the year as even the cloudiest of days can cause skin damage and promote unwanted signs of ageing.

Forming a Habit

Lytic Gel Cleanser is a must-have for men for its multiple uses. Keep it in the shower to use on face, body or even as a shampoo. Men love the cool refreshing feeling of Lytic Gel Cleanser on their skin.

Keep sunscreen and Renewal products conveniently available in the bathroom.
