Description

Cetraben Cream is a thick white cream with an easy absorption that locks in moisture. The cream is ideal for people with localised problematic skin, including dry skin and eczema. The formula includes properties that replenish lost oils in the skin and creates a barrier on the skin that protects the surface.

Cetraben emollient cream has protective and moisturising features for the symptomatic relief of dry skin, red skin, inflamed skin or chapped skin, particularly when these conditions are related to eczema.

Cetraben is suitable for all ages to relieve itchy skin and the eagerness to scratch it. Cetraben’s airless pump dispenser makes it very convenient and easy to apply accurately during the day.

Research & Evidence

For people with Psoriasis

HelloSkin’s experts were not able to find clinical data on the benefits of Cetraben Cream on psoriatic lesions.

However, the products contain glycerol which occurs naturally in the skin, where it helps attract and retain water from the deeper skin layers. This hydrates and thereby moisturises the skin (1). A decrease in the water content of the upper layer of the skin is found in many dry skin conditions, including psoriasis, and is linked to a reduced function of the skin barrier (2), which is believed to contribute to the inflammation and worsen the disease (3).

Also, the products contain white soft paraffin and liquid paraffin, which help prevent water from evaporating from the skin surface. Water evaporation is increased in psoriatic lesions compared with normal skin (4).

For people with Eczema

HelloSkin’s experts were not able to find clinical data on the benefits of Cetraben Emollient cream in atopic dermatitis. However, the product contains glycerin which occurs naturally in the skin where it helps attract and retain water from the deeper skin layers. This hydrates and thereby moisturises the skin (1).

In atopic dermatitis, and other dry skin conditions, there is a decrease in the water content of the upper layer of the skin which is linked to a reduced function of the skin barrier (2). This disruption makes the skin more susceptible to external environmental factors such as irritants and bacteria, and can worsen the condition and lead to further itching, scratching and inflammation (5).

The product also contains white soft paraffin and liquid paraffin, which help prevent water from evaporating from the skin surface. In atopic dermatitis both glycerol and paraffin have been shown to restore barrier functions, improve skin hydration and reduce skin dryness and eczema severity (6, 7)
