Cetraben is an emollient cream which can be used to help treat dry and sensitive skin. It used to be prescription only but now is available to buy whenever you or your child’s skin needs something a bit richer whether it’s due to dry patches or eczema related issues.
Both my children have suffered with dry and sensitive skin in different ways since they were born and I also have a particularly dry itchy patch of skin on my leg that ordinary moisturisers don’t really help with. We’ve been prescribed creams in the past but it’s great to know you can buy one when you need it.
Cetraben has created two different formulas, a cream and a lotion with the lotion being a lot lighter in texture than the cream which is great when you don’t want to be rubbing heavy creams in to your skin.
Both the cream and lotion contain three key ingredients:
- Light Liquid Paraffin – replaces lost skin oils
- White Soft Paraffin – forms a protective barrier on the skin surface
- Glycerin – brings moisture up from deep down in the skin
I’ve tried out both textures and find they both absorb really quickly and easily leaving little greasy residue. They are pleasant to use and have really helped with the dry patches on my leg and my little boys patches on his back.
The product comes in large style pump bottles (200ml) as well as handy smaller (50ml) bottles which are ideal for travel or keeping in your handbag.
I have two full sets of both the lotion and cream in both sizes available to giveaway to two lucky readers.
