How to use Cetraben

Cetraben Cream and Lotion

Cetraben products are suitable for people over the age of one. Follow the step-by-step guide to get the best results from your products.


Both the cream and the lotion in the Cetraben range are simple to apply and come packaged with a pump dispenser, helping you avoid mess and waste while ensuring easy and measured applications whenever you need them.

  • Apply to the skin as often as required or directed by your pharmacist or GP, to ensure continued hydration throughout the day. We recommend that you treat your skin as frequently as possible, or as a minimum at least twice a day
  • Apply liberally to the affected skin, as often as you feel the need to, ensuring that the area is well covered
  • Apply gently in the direction of hair growth until absorbed
  • Avoid rubbing the cream vigorously as this could trigger itching, creating more heat in the skin
  • Apply your emollient before and after you bathe to protect your skin from dryness
