Itchy, irritated skin that doesn’t properly retain moisture is a common problem associated with very dry skin and with eczema. Eczema is a general term that refers to a family of skin conditions that can also cause the skin to become inflamed, itchy and swollen.
For more than 60 years, we have formulated Cetaphil products for eczema and very dry skin with solutions for adults and children as young as 3 months. Many Cetaphil products are strong enough to clean thoroughly, yet gentle enough not to further irritate sensitive skin.
Additionally, research indicates Filaggrin proteins may be missing or may not function correctly in adults and children with eczema. This can disrupt the protective outer layer of the skin, so that things like soaps, fragrances, dyes or even water can cause people to experience severe dryness, redness and itching. Both Cetaphil® RestoraDerm® Skin Restoring Body Wash and Moisturizer use patented Filaggrin technology™ and ceramide technology to combat these frustrating symptoms common with eczema-prone skin. They are clinically proven to be suitable for total-body use and are appropriate for ages three months and older.
