Cetraben Emollient Cream 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.
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. 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.
