Meet the
Cetraben Range

The Cetraben range of emollients is made up of cream, a bath additive and an antimicrobial cream to help you manage damaged and dry skin.

The Cetraben bath additive together with Cetraben emollient cream provide complete emollient therapy (CET) to help stop the progression of eczema by re-hydrating the skin and protecting it from irritants; relieving discomfort and reducing the need to itch.

Eczmol is an antimicrobial product that can be added into your regime to manage eczema "flares".

Confidence with eczema

Eczema is a non-contagious, inflammatory skin condition that affects people of all ages.

In eczematous skin there is a lack of lipid between cells, and therefore water is lost making the skin dry. The loss of water means the skin’s cells shrink and crack, leaving gaps where irritants can penetrate. Inflammation can then occur as the skin barrier is broken, causing redness, swelling and itching.

Eczema is typically a long-term condition that can have a serious impact on a person’s life. There are a number of different types of Eczema, however atopic eczema is the most common form and affects around 10% of the population at some time in their lives.

Confidence with managing eczema

Emollients replace some of the missing lipid to fill in the gaps between the cells and reduce water loss. Regular use of emollients can help to repair the skin barrier and reduce inflammation.

Complete emollient therapy (CET) describes the process of using an emollient regularly together with a soap substitute and bath additive to ensure the skin remains hydrated all day and night.

Cetraben CET combined with Eczmol can help effectively manage atopic eczema and infections.
