What is Cetaphil Body Cream?

Cetaphil Body Cream is a rich daily body moisturiser that provides intense hydration for a full 24 hours and helps to replenish the skin’s natural protective barrier.  

What is dry skin and how is it caused?

Dry skin is often a temporary condition, although some people may experience it long-term, where the skin doesn’t retain sufficient moisture. Symptoms of dry skin include:

  • Skin feeling tight- especially after showering, bathing or swimming.
  • Skin that looks and feels rough.
  • Itching.
  • Flaking, scaling or peeling.
  • Fine lines or cracks.
  • Redness.
  • Sensitivity.

Dry skin can be caused by a range of factors including:

  • Weather- skin can dry out in winter when humidity levels drop and there isn’t a lot of moisture in the air.
  • Heat- central heating, fireplaces and heaters can reduce humidity which can dry out the skin.
  • Baths, showers and swimming- Taking long hot showers, lying in hot baths or swimming in chlorinated pools can dry out the skin.
  • Other skin conditions- eczema and psoriasis are two examples of conditions that can cause dry skin.

Why is moisturising important?

Your skin is designed to be a protective barrier for your body. Without sufficient moisture, your skin’s ability to provide the following functions is compromised:

Protection- providing a barrier against harmful germs that can cause infection.

Preventing dryness- the natural fats that maintain your skin’s protective barrier (known as lipids) regulate moisture and minimise water loss to prevent the skin from becoming tight and dry.

Preventing bacteria growth- Moisture balances the skin which prevents the invasion of bacteria and fungi.

Regeneration- moisturised skin can generate new skin cells far easier than dry skin.

Use Cetaphil Body Cream to keep your skin hydrated for 24 hours and help it to fulfil its protective functions.

At Chemist 4 U we provide a range of Cetaphil moisturising products, but how do you know which is right for you?

Cetaphil Body Cream

If you’re looking for a more intense source of hydration that lasts the entire day, we recommend Cetaphil Body Cream. Not only does it provide powerful hydration for dry sensitive skin, it can also be used to moisturise irritated skin and common skin conditions as part of a dermatological skincare routine.

How does Cetaphil Body Cream work?

The formula of Cetaphil Body Cream is fragrance free to prevent irritation and is non-comedogenic, so it won’t clog pores or leave skin feeling greasy. Cetaphil Body Cream is clinically proven to rehydrate dry skin and is dermatologically tested to be used to treat common skin conditions.

How to use Cetaphil Body Cream.

After bathing or showering, apply to areas affected by dryness for 24 hours of hydration.

Side effects.

All skin is different and although Cetaphil Body Cream is designed to be gentle on even sensitive skin, some people may experience mild skin irritation or allergic reaction. Do not use Cetaphil if you are allergic to any of the listed ingredients (see ingredients tab).  If you experience any discomfort or irritation to Cetaphil Body Cream, discontinue use immediately. If you experience an allergic reaction to Cetaphil Body Cream, seek advice from your GP.
