Cetraben is an alternative to E45, used for very dry skin and eczema. Cetraben lotion 50ml is down to £1 from £4.99 and 475ml is down to £3 from £12.99. I hadn't tried the cheaper alternatives to E45 so tried this at this price and it is just as good. Less oily actually as it is a lotion. They do creams also but my store had none.

Boots are discontinuing this so this may be nationwide. They are in date products.

Found in Boots in Epsom.

Cetraben isn't a cheap alternative, it's what the NHS use, I have it on prescription, I think it's better than E45.

I'll look out for this thanks

way better than E45

Thanks, will have a look in my local

Thanks but why are they discontinuing it? Not some kind of lame exclusivity deal with E45 people is it. (_;)

Had this on prescription before. It's great stuff!

The NHS used to prescribe Aveeno until the E45 manufacturers rallied against it. Cetraben is very good, not as good as Aveeno but far better than Dermol/ Diprobase and without the inherent burning of E45. I suspect it'll follow the same route as Aveeno and be dropped. Boots will be rubbing their chapped hands with glee

They'll never drop E45. It is horrific stuff though.

Great deal... Still normal price at Boots in Canary Wharf (checked at the till)... Boo.

Still full price at my 2 local Boots.

Stuff with a clearance sticker, like in the photo, tend to be store specific overstocks.

That's a shame They told me it was discontinued stock so thought it may be nationwide as it's unavailable to buy some of it on their website

not nationwide,damn!!!!

Top price, heat added

Will check my local but it's a wee one so seems unlikely. Can't help but look out for a bargain though!
