EpilaDerm HomeCare series for post-epilative skin care – with enzymes, water-soluble vitamin A and colostrum

Shaving, depilation with depilatory cream, typical waxing, IPL or laser hair removal does NOT qualify as skin care (EpilaDerm sugaring is the exception here).

More so these hair removal methods hide risks of stress and hypersensitivity of the skin surface, including suffering from ingrown hair or worse in case of improper handling.

The need and necessity for post-epilatory care both in the cabin (see EpilaDerm enzyme complex) and at the customer’s home is therefore undoubtedly there and can be successfully addressed with the EpilaDerm HomeCare series.

You can support your clients in choosing the necessary and best skin care products for use at home between appointments!

Your clients want A hair-free AND a smooth, velvety and beautiful skin as well.

And in order to achieve such results, your clients are advised to invest in your treatment outside of the cabin too.

Increase your turnover with hair removal by introducing the EpilaDerm HomeCare products as part of the epiladerm-METHOD.

EpilaDerm HomeCare Enzyme Peeling

Gel with special enzymes for gentle exfoliation and smoothing of the skin surface.

INCI: Propylene Glycol, Beheneth-10, Protease (red. Enzymes), Parfum

Free from mineral oil, parabens and silicones!

The EpilaDerm enzyme peel is gentle to use and suitable for all skin types as there is no friction or dragging on the surface of the skin (no micro-injuries).

The gentle enzyme peel not only results in smooth and velvety skin, it also keeps the hair follicle openings free of dead skin cells and can therefore reduce the appearance of ingrown hairs.

Application: The EpilaDerm HomeCare enzyme peeling is lightly massaged onto damp skin. Depending on the desired intensity, it should be left on for 5 to 10 minutes. Afterwards, it is washed off thoroughly with water.

After the peeling: Apply EpilaDerm HomeCare Pure Skin and/or EpilaDerm Regenerating Body Lotion.

ATTENTION: The first time the peeling should be applied at the earliest 72 hours after epilation/depilation. Thereafter, the skin should be exfoliated 1 to 2 times per week – depending on the skin condition. The last peeling should be done 3 to 5 days before the next EpilaDerm application.

EpilaDerm HomeCare Inhibitor

Lotion with special hair growth retarding enzymes to optimise epilation and delay hair growth.

INCI: Aqua, Caprylic/capric Triglyceride, PEG-120 Methyl Glucose Dioleate, Protease (red. Enzymes), Beheneth-10, Cetearyl alcohol, Methyl Glucose Sesquistearate, Stearyl Alcohol, Carbomer, Thriethanolamine, Parfum, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Panthenol, Tocopherol, BHT.

Free from mineral oil, parabens and silicones!

To support hair growth reduction with the EpilaDerm enzyme complex in the cabin, the depilated skin area should be specifically cared for with the HomeCare inhibitor at home.

Application: Apply 1 to 2 times daily to the depilated skin during the first week after hair removal. Suitable for all skin types.

Attention: Must not be used directly with EpilaDerm HomeCare Pure-Skin as the immunological-enzymatic system may interfere with the enzymes in the inhibitor.

Tip for men: The Inhibitor is an excellent after-shave care that nourishes the skin and can extend the time until the next shave.

Mode of action:

The inhibitor is an emulsion/lotion that mainly contains special natural enzymes. The function of the inhibitor, like the function of the enzyme peeling, is due to biological processes. Enzymes are protein-digesting substances and keratin, the substance our hair is also made of, is a protein.

When the inhibitor is applied to the skin, the enzymes contained are able to dissolve the hair tips on the surface of the skin. This effectively delays the regrowth of hair in the first week after the application in the cabin.

It should be especially emphasised that the enzymes in the inhibitor are very suitable for sensitive skin. The inhibitor as an emulsion/lotion does not clog the follicle outlets so that they remain open and supple.

EpilaDerm HomeCare Pure Skin

Gel with a patented immunological-enzymatic active ingredient formula to completely combat skin impurities, pimples and ingrown hairs.

INCI: Aqua, Carbomer, Lysozyme (red. Enzymes), Sodium Benzoate, Cyclodextrin, Sodium Hydroxide, Colostrum (natural substance, which a.o. contains immunoglobulines), Retinyl Palmitate (the foundation for the water-soluble Vitamin-A), Parfum, BHT.

Free from mineral oil, parabens and silicones!

Pimples, inflammation and blemished skin are usually the result of bacteria (e.g. from a smear infection after hair removal). A pore or hair follicle opening that is clogged with sebum, dead skin cells and/or bacteria thus develops into a pimple in the skin. The bacteria that thrive in and on the skin must therefore be fought.

The patented active ingredient combination of colostrum, immunoglobulin and lysozyme has a unique antibacterial effect (as a bactericide) against such inflammations in the skin – without irritating or drying out the skin – and also has a preventive effect against new skin impurities at the same time thanks to the contained water-soluble vitamin A, among other things.

Application as required: Apply a small amount in the morning, evening and in between to ingrown hairs, inflammations and blemishes/pimples and leave on.

Especially recommended for:

  1. Women who are prone to ingrown hair in the bikini/intimate area and skin blemishes on the face/body.
  2. Men are prone to ingrown hair and blemishes on the chest, back and intimate areas. Also extremely effective on the face against skin impurities and for irritated skin after shaving.

Attention: For effective control of ingrown hair, Pure-Skin should be used in combination with the recommended application of the enzyme peel.

EpilaDerm HomeCare Regenerating Body Lotion

An exclusive lotion with active colostrum and water-soluble vitamin A for lasting improvement of skin structure and elasticity.

INCI: Aqua, Cellulose Gum, Glycine Soja, Propylene Glycol, Caprilic/Capric Triglyceride, Palm Glycerides, Phenoxyethanol, Rapeseed Glycerides, Parfum, PEG-20 Methyl Glucose Sesquistearate, Methyl Glucose Sesquistearate, Myristic Acid, Colostrum (natural substance from bovine origin), Cetearyl Alcohol, Xanthan Gum, Ethylhexylglycerin, Retinyl Palmitate (the foundation for the water-soluble Vitamin-A), Distarch Phosphate, Citric Acid, BHT.

Free from mineral oil, parabens and silicones!

Colostrum is THE powerhouse of nature and cares for the skin wonderfully lightly and provides the skin cells with new energy and strength for a healthy skin structure.

The unique “water-soluble vitamin A” developed by Pedersen’s laboratory not only prevents premature skin ageing and wrinkles, it also penetrates the skin cells particularly well (up to 60 times faster than conventional fat-soluble vitamin A) and supports skin regeneration. Cell renewal is promoted and it gives the skin a vital, smooth and silky-soft feeling.

Application as required: Apply 1 to 2 times daily to the skin, especially generously to dry areas.

The regular use of this high-intensity skin care in combination with the skin-friendly depilation by the EpilaDerm sugar pastes is the guarantee for a healthy skin structure and velvety soft skin. After 3 months of use, skin elasticity is improved and regenerated by up to 18% and skin thickness by up to 31%. Control measurements after 12 months showed that this effect is lasting!

The positive effect of water-soluble vitamin A on skin structure is clinically documented by double-blind studies.

The role of vitamin A in cosmetics

Vitamin A is a powerful biological agent that plays an important role in skin regeneration and thus against premature ageing of the skin. Dermatologists and dermatologists confirm that vitamin A has the greatest influence and the best effect on the following areas of the skin:

  • Cell growth
  • New formation of skin cells
  • Skin thickness
  • Skin elasticity
  • Moisture balance

Until now, it has hardly been possible to fully exploit these excellent properties in cosmetic products, as vitamin A belongs to the fat-soluble vitamins. As an additive in cosmetic products, fat-soluble vitamin A can only partially unfold its effects, if at all.

The solution: water-soluble vitamin A!

Through a proprietary pharmaceutical process, the vitamin A contained is no longer fat-soluble, as is usually the case, but for the first time water-soluble.

Instead of retinoic acid (vitamin A acid), the water-soluble vitamin A cream contains retinyl ester (see above) in a concentration of 2,000-5,000 I.U./g. This corresponds to the specifications for cosmetic products.

Due to its water solubility, vitamin A overcomes the skin’s natural barrier, penetrates the skin cell membrane and ultimately becomes active as vitamin A acid.

The positive effect of water-soluble vitamin A on skin structure is well known and clinically documented.

Up to 60 times higher penetration capacity with water-soluble vitamin A

A prerequisite for a cream to affect the skin is that it is able to penetrate the skin. The water-soluble vitamin A in the creams has the unique ability to penetrate the skin, which was proven by a so-called penetration study. This study was conducted with a test membrane that has the same properties as human skin.

In the course of 1 hour, 3.1 % of the conjugated (water-soluble) vitamin A had penetrated the skin (this is about 60 times more than with ordinary, fat-soluble vitamin A).

The study was presented at the “Nordic Symposium on Focus on the Anti-Aging Treatment of the Skin in Oslo, March 1993.


The creams with water-soluble vitamin A enable a perfect and immediately effective skin treatment with vitamin A with a sustainable effect – and all without side effects, hypersensitivity and skin irritations!

Clinical studies with water-soluble vitamin A

Further scientific studies confirm that the water-soluble vitamin A creams have a unique effect against wrinkles and skin ageing…

Anti-ageing effect of water-soluble vitamin A

The first signs of ageing are that the skin loses elasticity and thickness. A double-blind study has proven that water-soluble vitamin A cream improves both elasticity (by 18 %) and skin thickness (by 31 %) after three months of use. No comparable improvements were demonstrated with the use of ordinary vitamin A cream.

Comparative study on vitamin A acid

Over the years it has been documented that creams with vitamin A acid have an anti-wrinkle effect, but also significant side effects such as reddened, photosensitive and irritated skin. A comparative study has proven that water-soluble vitamin A cream has the same improving effect on the skin as creams with vitamin A acid – but without any form of side effects!

EpilaDerm products with water-soluble vitamin A can therefore also be used in spring and summer, as they do not irritate the skin or make it more sensitive to light.


Colostrum is the so-called first milk. It contains natural immunoglobulins, growth factors and high-quality nutrients designed to help the body (of the newborn) grow quickly and develop effective defences.

The most important ingredients of colostrum can be summarised in the following groups:


Immunoglobulins are special proteins that are largely responsible for the body’s defence against infections and other unwanted invaders. They are formed in cells of the lymphatic system and react as antibodies. They are divided into five immunoglobulin classes with the abbreviations Ig (for immunoglobulin) A, IgD, IgE, IgG and IgM. Colostrum contains all 5 immunoglobulins.

Proline-rich polypeptides (PRP)

PRPs have a supporting effect on the thymus gland, which is important for the functioning of the immune system in young people. They discreetly stimulate an underactive immune system and calm it down again when the reaction is excessive (such as in allergic reactions).

Natural growth factors

Natural growth factors have a positive influence on cell metabolism. They influence the immune system and stimulate the body to produce more of its own immunoglobulins. Colostrum contains insulin-like growth factors (IgF), which stimulate cell growth and regeneration, transforming growth factors (TgF) alpha and beta, which support the synthesis and restoration of RNA and DNA as well as the renewal of muscle tissue in athletes, and epithelial growth factors (EgF), which stimulate normal skin growth.


Proteins are proteins that, along with sugar and fat, are the most important components and prerequisites for all life in nature. Proteins have the so-called “amino acids” as their building blocks and are divided into groups that include muscle protein, enzymes and hormones.

Amino acids

Amino acids, as protein building blocks, are vital for metabolism and cell regeneration. Some of these amino acids are “essential” for humans, i.e. the body cannot produce these protein building blocks itself in its metabolism and must be supplied with them in the diet.


Minerals are also essential substances for the body. They include sodium and chlorine, which we know from the kitchen as normal table salt, potassium, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus and numerous other so-called “trace elements” such as iron, copper, zinc, iodine or selenium. We have to take in all these substances with our food in order not to risk deficiencies or diseases.


Vitamins regulate protein, fat and sugar metabolism and are needed by the organism. The vitamin B complex of colostrum is interesting. It has a positive influence on the nerve fibres, counteracts states of exhaustion and stress, promotes blood formation and rapid recovery after illness (=reconvalescence). Vitamin A, thiamine (B1), riboflavin (B2), pyrodoxin (B6), cobalamin, folic acid, vitamin C, cholecalciferol (D3), tocopherol (E), ubiquinone (Q10).


Creatine participates in the muscles’ ability to absorb sugar and thus influences the body’s performance.

Lactoperoxidase thiocyanate & xanthine oxidase

Lactoperoxidase thiocyanate & xanthine oxidase are involved in the transfer of oxygen in the body’s metabolism and may also have antibacterial effects.

Other ingredients

Other ingredients of colostrum are mainly glycoproteins, which prevent the valuable proteins from being broken down by enzymes and thus protect the immune and growth factors during their passage through the digestive system. In addition, colostrum contains lactoferrin, which, as numerous clinical studies have shown, is confirmed as a natural protection against viruses and bacteria. Lactoferrin is a protein with a particularly high iron-binding capacity and an effective antioxidant that counteracts free radicals, protects cellular protective functions and can thus slow down the ageing process in humans.

The patented secret behind HomeCare Pure Skin


Bacteriolysis of Gram negative bacteria caused by the immunological-enzymatic system

The patented immunological-enzymatic system is the result of 6 years of unique Danish research and consists of the natural ingredients immunoglobulins (from bovine colostrum) and lysozyme (enzyme).

Standardised immunoglobulins

Standardised immunoglobulins are able to bind to bacteria and, together with a complement system, neutralise them.


The enzyme lysozyme was discovered by Alexander Fleming in 1922 and has the ability to lyse various gram-positive bacteria. However, lysing Gram-negative bacteria with lysozyme alone is not possible.

Complement system

Danish research has NOW solved the problem of lysozyme penetrating the outer lipopolysaccharide membrane in Gram-negative bacteria, thus making dissolution of the peptidoglycan membrane possible with bacteriolysis as a consequence.

It turned out that when an immunoglobulin binds to the bacterial wall, the bacterium can be fought with lysozyme.

This means that antibacterial effects are seen against both gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria!

Clinically tested with EpilaDerm HomeCare Pure Skin

The effect of “Pure Skin” was tested in a controlled double-blind study. The test result shows an effect score* of 7.2 compared to only 1.7 in the subjects treated with a placebo (ineffective agent).

(*Effect score: 10=very high effect, effect score: 0=no effect)

No side effects were observed in the clinical tests. The Pure-Skin product can therefore be used without any restrictions.
