In conjunction with the Eczema Association of Australasia Inc, Cetaphil® RESTORADERM™ is a proud sponsor of Eczema Awareness Week which will be taking place Australia-wide on 2-8 September 2013.
Atopic dermatitis, more often known as eczema, is a common skin condition that has tripled in Australia during the past three decades, with up to 30% of children and 10% adults are affected. The condition can be debilitating and a constant source of irritation, pain and, in some cases, embarrassment. The Eczema Association of Australasia has stated that 20 per cent of people will develop eczema before the age of five.
Developed by dermatologists for eczema sufferers, the advanced formulations and patented technology of Cetaphil® RESTORADERM™ work to help restore the skin's natural moisture barrier and protect it against dryness.
STEP 1 – Cleanse: Cetaphil® RESTORADERM™ Skin Restoring Body Wash ($19.99 RRP) is formulated to help soothe itchy, dry, sensitive skin, while restoring moisture as it gently cleanses. This creamy, emollient rich, soap-free body wash contains skin-nourishing oils which nurture dry skin and help replenish skin barrier function. The innovative Skin Restoring Body Wash & Moisturiser formulas include filaggrin breakdown products – proteins of which have both been shown to be depleted in sufferers of eczema.
Step 2 – Moisturise: Cetaphil® RESTORADERM™ Skin Restoring Body Moisturiser ($25.99 RRP) is a rapid and long lasting moisturiser to help relieve itchy, dry, sensitive skin. This light, creamy, non-greasy moisturiser provides intensive hydration to help restore skin barrier function. The ceramide technology in Cetaphil® RESTORADERM™ Moisturiser works to put moisture back into skin, deeply moisturising layers of the epidermis – an essential factor in reducing the itchy and painful effects of eczema.
