Created by dermatologists in 2005, CeraVe offers a complete range of skin care products adapted for all skin types. Enriched with a combination of three essential ceramides (ceramides 1, 3, and 6-II), fatty acids, and other lipids that help replenish the skin, Cerave formulas help restore and maintain a healthy skin barrier.

CeraVe uses a technology called Multivesicular Emulsion Technology (MVE), which releases active ingredients, layer after layer, throughout the day to help keep skin soft and hydrated. The CeraVe brand includes products that attend to facial and body hygiene and hydration.

As with any skincare routine, it is important to use a daily cleanser adapted for your skin type and physiological pH. Cerave cleansers are adapted for all skin types: 


Next, use a moisturizer with nourishing ingredients to protect the skin barrier. 

For facial moisturizing on normal to dry skin:

  • CeraVe Moisturizing Facial Lotion SPF 25, offers protection against UV radiation while helping to repair the skin’s protective barrier thanks to the ceramides and hyaluronic acid in the formula.

CeraVe offers two body care textures, CeraVe Moisturizing Body Lotion for normal to dry body skin and CeraVe Moisturizing Cream for dry and very dry skin. Both provide intense hydration throughout all day and leave skin comfortable thanks to the ingredients in their composition and are adapted for children and adults.

CeraVe SA Smoothing Cream range is indicated for rough or uneven skin and skin with psoriasis.  Skin is smoother and healthier thanks to its exfoliating action.

Especially for oily skin, CeraVe offers cleansers and moisturizers that gently clean removing excess sebum, and hydrate the skin without clogging pores, such as CeraVe Foaming Cleanser, and CeraVe Moisturizing Lotion respectively.

CeraVe skincare is advised for atopic skin. The brand has received recognition and approval by the US National Eczema Association™ (an association that identifies products suitable for sensitive and eczema-prone skin).
