How does Cetraben Bath Additive work?
Eczema is an inflammatory skin condition which causes flare-ups of red, itchy, cracked and scaling skin.
This occurs due to loss of moisture from the top layer of skin, which can be worsened by washing with soap and hot water.
Cetraben Bath Additive is a clear solution containing liquid paraffin. Added to bath water it helps form a protective layer on the skin to re-hydrate, soothe and replace lost oils.
Its ingredients moisturise the skin, providing relief from discomfort and itching in babies, children and adults.
