Instead of getting better, the problem persists or even gets worse.Epoch® Sole Solution™ Foot Treatment contains the right combination of ingredients, offering a solution for the heels, toes, and soles.
12Epoch® Sole Solution™ Foot Treatment So much more than a moisturizer, Epoch® Sole Solution™ restores healthy looking heels, toes, and soles. Featuring crushed allspice berry (Pimenta dioica)—an ingredient used by indigenous people of Central America for persistently dry and cracked or red skin—Epoch® Sole Solution™ goes beyond moisturization to restore healthy looking feet.
13Key BenefitsWorks on the underlying cause of rough, dry, and cracked feet, returning them to a soft, smooth, healthy looking condition.Delivers noticeable relief in the first few weeks of use.Softens and exfoliates dead cell buildup and calluses for smooth, soft skin.
14Ethnobotanical Ingredient Crushed Allspice Berry (Pimenta dioica)— The topical uses and restorative properties of allspice have been a secret of the indigenous people of Central America for generations and were only recently discovered by ethnobotanists.Natives would crush the berries and mix them with other natural oils to make an effective ointment to be rubbed on their feet at night before going to sleep and again in the morning to relieve persistently dry, cracked skin.
15Key IngredientsUrea—Exfoliates calluses and dead cell buildup while providing deep moisturization.Papain—A proteolytic enzyme from papaya that breaks down and loosens thick, rough patches of dry, dead skin.
17Key Benefits Supported Works on the underlying cause of rough, dry, and cracked feet, helping return them to a soft, smooth, healthy looking condition.When the skin is extremely dry, it loses the ability to stretch as pressure is applied while walking and standing. As a result, the skin splits and cracks causing deep fissures, which can become vulnerable to outside invaders. Simply applying a moisturizer is not enough to remedy this problem. Epoch® Sole Solution™ Foot Treatment contains both crushed allspice berry and urea to soften and loosen dry, cracked areas. As the dead cell buildup is exfoliated, healthy skin beneath is able to absorb much needed moisture.
18Key Benefits Supported Delivers noticeable relief in the first few weeks of use.Many products designed to relieve dry, cracked feet require months of consistent use before they begin to show even the slightest signs of relief. Epoch® Sole Solution™ Foot Treatment quickly gets to the source of the problem as it softens and removes rough, dry cell buildup. Vital moisturization quickly reaches healthy skin cells beneath calluses and deep cracks to help restore cell renewal and begin your skin’s natural healing process.
19Key Benefits Supported Softens and exfoliates calluses and dead skin buildup for soft, smooth skin.Allspice berry: Natural volatile oils and fruit acids in allspice berry help to loosen rough, dry skin and promote suppleness.Urea: A natural moisturizer found within the skin, urea plays a key role in sustaining the skin’s moisture balance. In fact, clinically dry skin is found to lack normal levels of urea.Papain: A natural fruit enzyme from the tropical fruit papaya with natural proteolytic properties that break apart skin protein and soften dead cell buildup.
