What is Cetaphil Moisturising Lotion?

Cetaphil Moisturising Lotion is a clinically proven moisturiser for dry and sensitive skin. It is lightweight for quick absorption. Cetaphil Moisturising Lotion is fragrance-free and non-comedogenic (doesn’t block pores) for long-lasting hydration that is suitable for sensitive skin.

What is dry skin?

Dry skin is often a temporary condition, although some people might experience it long-term. Symptoms of dry skin include:

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

What causes dry skin?

Dry skin can be caused by a range of environmental factors and other skin conditions, including:.

Weather

Skin can often dry out in winter when temperatures and humidity levels drop.

Heat

Central heating, fireplaces and heaters can reduce humidity in the air and dry out the skin.

Baths, Showers and Swimming

Taking long, hot showers or lying in hot baths for long periods of time can dry out the skin.

Other Skin Conditions

Skin conditions such as eczema or psoriasis can cause dry skin.

Why is moisturising important?

Did you know that the skin is the body’s largest organ? It acts as the body’s protective barrier, but without the right amount of moisture, your skin’s ability to provide this protection is compromised.

Your skin can only fulfil these functions when it is sufficiently moisturised:

Protection

Skin can only perform its task as the body’s protective barrier if it has sufficient moisture.

Prevents Drying Out

Skin lipids (natural fats that maintain the skin’s protective barrier) regulate moisture and minimise water loss to prevent the skin from becoming tight and dry.

Prevents Bacteria Growth

Moisture in the skin maintains balance which prevents the penetration of fungi and bacteria

Regeneration

Without moisture in the skin, generating new skin cells becomes difficult.

Elasticity

Water in the skin is important to maintain elasticity, without which every small movement or vibration would make the skin tear.

How does Cetaphil Moisturising Lotion work?

Cetaphil Moisturising Lotion works by binding water to the skin to prevent moisture loss. It is specifically formulated to hydrate sensitive, dry skin so doesn’t contain any fragrance or lanolin (a type of animal fat commonly used in moisturisers), so it is gentle on the skin and doesn’t clog pores.

Who is Cetaphil Moisturising Lotion Suitable for?

Cetaphil Moisturising Lotion is suitable for anyone who has dry sensitive skin. It is recommended to rehydrate damaged skin associated with common skin conditions, such as eczema.

How to use Cetaphil Moisturising Lotion

Apply Cetaphil Moisturising Lotion daily to the face and body, as often as required.  Cetaphil Moisturising Lotion is for external use only. Avoid contact with eyes. If contact occurs, rinse immediately with water.

Side effects.

All skin is different and even though Cetaphil Moisturising Lotion has a gentle formula that is suitable for sensitive skin, it is possible for some side effects to be experienced:

  • Mild skin irritation
  • Allergic reaction

If skin irritation occurs, discontinue use. If irritation persists, consult your doctor or a Chemist 4 U pharmacist.
