What is Cetraben Lotion?

Cetraben Lotion has been specially designed to provide quick, reliable relief from problematic dry, sensitive or eczema-prone skin. It is a light emollient or moisturising lotion that is quickly absorbed into the skin making it suitable for everyday use to soothe, protect and hydrate, even the larger dry areas. 

Cetraben Lotion is manufactured by Thornton and Ross and is suitable for vegans (animal cruelty and testing free). 

 

What is Cetraben Lotion used for?

This wonderfully light lotion can be used to soothe and moisturise skin that is dry, flaky and irritated. It is the perfect option for treating large areas of skin that may be affected by eczema, psoriasis or dermatitis. And is suitable for people with sensitive skin. 

 

How does Cetraben Lotion work?

Cetraben Lotion helps to hydrate dry, flaky skin by attracting moisture into the skin while also creating a barrier over the surface of the skin to prevent further fluid from being lost and any bacteria or dirt getting in. 

 

How quickly does Cetraben Lotion work?

With long-term daily use, Cetraben Lotion leaves your skin feeling calmed and moisturised after each application. If you suffer from recurrent episodes of dry skin or eczema you should use this product as and when it is needed to offer relief. 

For the best results, you should use Cetraben Lotion before and after bathing, showering or swimming to prevent any further moisture loss. 

 

Alternatives to Cetraben Lotion

Cetraben Lotion is what is known as an emollient, which means that it contains ingredients that help it to lock in moisture to the surface of the skin to help hydrate dry skin. It is a lotion rather than a cream, which means it is much lighter and more quickly absorbed so is ideal for daytime use. 

There are many emollient creams, ointments, gels and lotions that are available to buy over-the-counter, without a prescription. It is usually up to individual choice as to which product they find works best for them. 

Some alternative emollients that are available from The Independent Pharmacy include:

How to use Cetraben Lotion

Cetraben Lotion is for external use only and should be applied directly to dry areas of skin. For best results apply at least twice daily, as well as before and after bathing, showering or swimming. 

  1. Wash your hands before and after use.
  2. Apply enough lotion to cover the affected areas liberally. 
  3. Gently massage the lotion into the skin in the direction of the hair growth.
