What is Cetaphil Moisturising Hand Cream?

Cetaphil Moisturising Hand Cream is a rapidly absorbed, non-greasy hand moisturiser that can be used to keep hands hydrated throughout the day and to provide overnight care for soft, nourished and supple hands.

What causes dry skin on our hands?

Dry skin can appear when our hands cannot maintain moisture, resulting in roughness and dehydration. In extreme conditions this can lead to skin cracking which can result in pain, bleeding or infection. Dry hands can be cause by:

Dry Air

Without a sufficient amount of humidity in the air, our skin can become dehydrated. This can happen in both warm and cold temperatures. In winter, temperatures plunge which can decrease the amount of humidity in the air. Indoor heating can also take away moisture from the air.


Not drinking enough water during the day can lead to all sorts of problems, including dizziness and fainting but it can also cause our skin to dry out. Staying hydrated ensures that our skin stays soft and supple.

Excessive Hand Washing.

When we wash our hands, we strip our skin of its natural oils. Excessive handwashing can dry our hands out and leave them scaly and prone to cracking.


Many topical medicines, can contain ingredients that dry out our skin.

Underlying Conditions.

There are a few medical conditions which can cause dry hands including:

  • Atopic dermatitis.
  • Psoriasis.
  • Diabetes.
  • Underactive thyroid gland.

Always consult your doctor if you think your dry hands are a result of a medical condition.

Your Genes.

There is research to suggest that dry skin can be inherited. Mutations that control the production of proteins used to form the skin’s protective barrier can cause dry skin. People with these mutations are more likely to experience dry skin or skin conditions such as eczema.

Why is moisturising our hands important?

We know that moisturising our face and body is important to fight dry skin, replenish our skin’s protective barrier and keep our skin soft and supple, the same applies to our hands. We wash our hands many times a day and use them in many tasks which can take their toll on the skin on our hands. Using a hand moisturiser such as Cetaphil Moisturising Hand Cream, after washing throughout the day can keep them hydrated and prevent dry skin from forming or cracks in the skin.

Who is Cetaphil Moisturising Hand Cream suitable for?
