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.£3.49 RRP £3.99
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

I have used this hand creme for a long time. It is effective. Unlike a lot of hand creme it doesn`t make you need more and more, it just does it`s job!
I have had to deal with symptoms of eczema for the past 30 years. It wasn`t until I found Cetraben, a couple of years ago, that I started feeling I could function with a degree of normality. I use it every day and it has helped with the dryness and itchiness significantly. In terms of effectiveness, there might be other emollients out there that work similarly, but they all have a very intense "medicine-like" smell. Cetraben has none of that. It`s smell is neutral, almost imperceptible, and I don`t have to worry about smelling like I`ve just got out of hospital, if you know what I mean...I honestly recommend it for anyone out there, whose main problem, like mine, is extremely dry , itchy and flaky skin.
