What is a Generic Drug?

A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.

The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.

Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.

  • Product Details

    Description

    EPILYT (Propylene Glycol-Glycerin) lotion is a non-prescription product that can be used to prevent dry, rough, and scaly skin. It may be commonly used for the following conditions:

    • Burns from radiation therapy
    • Diaper rash
    • Itchy skin
    • Rough skin
    • Dry skin

    You may experience dry skin when the upper layer of the skin is unable to retain moisture. The skin can lose moisture for various reasons, and EPIPLYT can help to keep moisture in and prevent water loss. 

    The active ingredients in EPILYT lotion are propylene glycol and glycerin, which are both humectants. Humectants work by drawing moisture into the outer layer of the skin to rehydrate it.
