Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion is an emollient moisturizer that can be used to prevent dry, rough, scaly, itchy skin and minor skin irritations, including diaper rash and skin burns from radiation therapy. Emollients are substances that soften and moisturize the skin, reducing itching and flaking. It works by forming an oily layer on the skin's surface that traps water in the skin.
Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion is suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin, and is clinically proven to provide instant and long-lasting hydration for up to 48 hours. It is also non-greasy and non-comedogenic, meaning it will not clog pores or cause acne breakouts.
