Cetraben Lotion is part of a small range of products from the same manufacturer that uses the moisturising properties of light liquid paraffin and white soft paraffin to rehydrate dry skin.
Dry and eczema-prone skin often suffers from the loss of the skin’s protective barrier. In healthy individuals, this helps to retain moisture in the upper skin layers by reducing evaporation from the surface; but this process is interrupted in individuals suffering from a skin condition.
Cetraben’s emollient properties help to restore this natural barrier. It also contains glycerin, which brings moisture to the surface from the deeper skin layers, increasing the amount of moisture in the upper layers.
Used regularly, the skin becomes softer, smoother, and feels healthier. It also reduces the itchiness and the need to scratch for dry skin sufferers.
The lotion is fragrance-free and contains none of the irritants commonly found in standard soaps, gels, and other lotions, which may worsen dry skin conditions.
Cetraben Lotion absorbs easily and dries quickly. It is mild enough to be used as part of the daily cleansing routine and can be used by people with large areas of eczema or dry skin. It is suitable for children over the age of 12 months. To see more creams intended for eczema or dermatitis, click here
