Cetraben Emollient Cream Pump Dispenser is an emollient moisturising and protective cream for symptomatic relief of red, inflamed, damaged, dry, or chapped skin, especially when associated with eczema.
Emulsifying Ointment is used for very dry skin conditions, particularly eczema and dermatitis, which gets worse when the skin is allowed to dry out. Dry skin results from lack of water in the outer layer of skin cells. When this layer becomes dehydrated it loses its flexibility and becomes cracked, scaly and sometimes itchy. The skin dries out when too much water evaporates from its surface. This increases as we get older and is made worse by washing, because hot water and soap remove the layer of natural oil on the skin surface.
Cetraben Emollient Cream Pump Dispenser is made from a mixture of white soft paraffin and liquid paraffin with water, to produce a soft thick moisturiser. It works by providing a layer of oil on the skins surface to prevent water evaporating from it. Moisturisers are helpful for all dry skin conditions, particularly eczema and dermatitis, which get worse when the skin is allowed to dry out. Used regularly they help restore the skin's smoothness, softness and flexibility by helping the skin retain moisture. They should be applied frequently to prevent the skin drying out. In conditions such as eczema, using a moisturiser regularly, even once the skin has improved, can help prevent flare-ups of this condition.Cetraben Cream also contains glycerin, which is absorbed into the skin where it attracts water to itself, helping to retain water in the skin surface. Used every day, emollients may be all you need to keep mild to moderate eczema under control.Emollients
- Emollients are non-cosmetic moisturisers which come in the form of creams, ointments, lotions and gels. Emollients help skin to feel more comfortable and less itchy. They keep the skin moist and flexible, helping to prevent cracks.
- Creams contain a mixture of fat and water and feel light and cool to the skin. For this reason many people with eczema prefer creams for day time use. All creams contain preservatives and people can become sensitive to them, although this is not common.
How are emollients applied and when?
- Apply emollients after bathing, while water is still trapped in the skin for extra hydration.
- Use liberally and frequently at least three times a day.
- Apply gently in the direction of the hair growth. Never rub up and down vigorously as this could trigger itching, block hair follicles or create more heat in the skin
- Continue to use the emollient, even when the eczema has improved as this will help prevent flare ups.
