What is the difference between Cetraben cream, Epimax paraffin-free and Isomol?

A difference between Cetraben cream and Epimax paraffin-free is that, as the name suggests, Epimax contains no paraffin, whereas Cetraben contains paraffin as one of its main active ingredients.

Another difference between Cetraben and Isomol are that Isomol contains Isopropyl Myristate 15% as its main active Ingredient, and Cetraben does contain that ingredient in any way whatsoever.

How should I take Cetraben cream? 

Before use, Cetraben cream is for external use only and should not be swallowed; if accidentally swallowed, seek medical attention immediately. Adults and children can use it, so you don't have to worry about it being dangerous for children; however, do not keep it in reach of children. To use the Cetraben cream, apply it to the area of the skin that is rough as often as needed; it should be applied frequently, especially after washing, as this dries the skin, so use it to stop the skin drying out. Cetraben cream can be applied to any part of the body but do try to avoid getting the cream in your eye, in the case that this does happen, rinse your eye thoroughly with cold water. Smooth the moisturiser into your skin; apply in the direction of the hair growth.

How does Cetraben cream work? 

The reason skin dries out is that too much water from the skin surface evaporates, washing hands only makes this worse as hot water and soap will remove the layer of natural oil the skin has on its surface. Also, people who suffer from eczema appear to have less natural oil on their skin. What the cream does when applied to the skin is that it makes the natural oils stay with a barrier to prevent the water in the skin from evaporating from the skin surface. This is thanks to its active ingredient:  White Soft Paraffin 13.2% w/w, Light Liquid Paraffin 10.5% w/w, Emulsifying Wax (SLS free), Cetostearyl Alcohol, and Glycerol. The cream absorbs into the skin. When absorbed, it attracts water to itself, thus helping retain water in the skin, so anywhere you have rough skin, Cetraben cream is there to help you out.
