Cetaphil Intensive Moisturiser with natural Shea Butter is especially useful for those hardworking body parts like hands, feet and other skin surfaces which need intensive moisturising. Dry skin conditions are caused by a lack of moisture in the skin's outer layer. This lack of moisture is due to the protective barrier being compromised, allowing moisture to escape In normal skin, however, the barrier function is intact and unbroken, thereby retaining moisture and keeping skin soft and supple. Cetaphil Intensive Moisturiser helps restore this protective barrier and locks in moisture. It is absorbed easily and does not leave a greasy residue. Cetaphil Intensive Moisturiser's formulation is ideal when used as part of a daily regimen of treatment for problem skin conditions like eczema.
