Cetraben Bath Additive

Cetraben Bath Additive offers protection to people suffering from skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis that cause dry and flaky skin. It is a daily-use, fragrance-free, nourishing bath formula consisting of protective oil that relieves inflamed, and damaged skin.


Cetraben Bath Additive is a medicated treatment for people suffering from dry skin. It is a clear, fragrance-free, moisturizing bath formula containing protective oil that relieves inflamed, red, damaged, dry, or chapped skin, associated with endogenous or exogenous eczema. It contains an active ingredient called light liquid paraffin (82.8%) which is an effective emollient (moisturiser) for skin protection and hydration.

The skin of those suffering from a dry skin condition such as endogenous or exogenous eczema usually becomes red, inflamed, or chapped. Replacing soap or gel with a capful or two recommended dosage of Cetraben Bath Additive in their daily bath rehydrates skin and reduces symptoms since soaps can strip the skin of essential oils.

Dry skin conditions such as endogenous or exogenous eczema lead to inflamed, red, or chapped skin. It is due to a lack of natural oils in the skin. Skin drying occurs due to the evaporation of excess water from the skin surface and washing hands only makes this worse. Since hot water and soap remove the natural oil layer of the skin.

The oils present in the Cetraben formula create an occlusive layer on the skin helping it rehydrate by trapping more moisture while reducing evaporation. It is because of this effect that the skin feels softer and smoother. That eventually reduces the symptoms of associated dry skin conditions. It protects the skin all over the body and not just in the dry areas.

Some of the most notable features of this bath emollient are as follows:

  • It is made up of light liquid paraffin
  • An effective soothing bath treatment for dry skin
  • People of all ages can use it safely
  • It is a fragrance-free
  • It is cruelty-free
  • It soothes and moisturises all parts of your body
  • It is suitable and safe for daily use

Regular use of Cetraben Bath Additive has shown to lower the symptoms of dry skin that arrive with skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis. The mild formula can be used daily so that the patients can do away with harsh soaps and gels that strip their dryness-prone skin of its natural oils and harm it.

One of the most notable benefits of using Cetraben Bath Additive is that it effectively rehydrates dry skin associated with endogenous or exogenous eczema and other drying conditions. You may add the emollient to your daily bath or chose to apply it while showering to reverse dry skin conditions.

In case you plan to add it to your daily bath:

  • Add 10-20 ml of the Cetraben Bath Additive liquid for adults above 18
  • For children, you should add 5-10 ml to their warm bathwater

In case you want to apply it in the shower make sure your skin is wet using a wet sponge and take about 10 ml of the formula to be applied evenly all over the body and then rinse well with water.

Like all medications, even Cetraben Bath Additive may result in some unwanted side effects but that does not indicate that everyone who uses it will experience the same. In case you are allergic or hypersensitive to any of the ingredients in this medication, you may experience undesirable skin reactions, such as a burning sensation, a rash, itching or redness of the skin. If these are minor, they will subside in a few days as your skin gets used to the medication. If they persist for a long, stop using them immediately and consult your doctor.

In case of an accidental application of the product to the eyes, you should rinse well with water. Cetraben Bath Additive may make your bathtub slippery because of its oil contents so take extra precaution when stepping in or out of the bath.

To avoid any drug interactions that are currently unknown, inform your doctor about all the medications that you currently taking, such as prescription, non-prescription, vitamin supplements and herbal products.

The primary scenario to avoid this medication is if you are allergic to any of the ingredients. Also, avoid using this additive when smoking or going near a naked flame since it is highly flammable. Even your clothes with the additive tend to become more flammable and can lead to a serious fire hazard. Wash them to reduce build-up.

Store it in a cool dry place and away from the sight and reach of children and pets.
