Discover Cetaphil: A Dermatologist Endorsed Sensitive Skin Saviour

Cetaphil science backed skincare for sensitive skin

Heralding themselves as sensitive skin experts, Cetaphil has been committed to providing skincare solutions for over 70 years, using their advancing skin science to soothe and nourish your skin.

With humble Texan roots, Cetaphil Cleansing Lotion was founded in 1947 by a pharmacist who wanted to help his patients treat their sensitive skin issues. Containing only seven ingredients, this gentle and effective cleanser was an instant hit, and the range rapidly expanded to include moisturisers, sunscreens and baby care products. Now sold globally, Cetaphil is praised by sufferers of acne-prone skin for its affordability, non-irritating and non-drying formula that’s widely available in drugstores, supermarkets and online retailers in over 70 countries.

Dermatologist Endorsed Formulas

Gentle and non-comedogenic, Cetaphil’s products are often recommended by dermatologists for their mild, non-irritating formulas. Free from unnecessary ingredients and fragrances, Cetaphil skincare is advancing all the time, deepening their knowledge of people’s skin needs by working closely with healthcare professionals to ensure, effective, treatment of skin sensitivity.

Carrying out over 550 clinical studies on 32,000 patients Cetaphil partners with dermatologists to ensure the safety of their products on sensitive skin, creating trusted, science-backed formulas to cleanse and moisturise your skin.

Enriched with Niacinamide and panthenol to soothe sensitive skin and reduce dryness as well as glycerin to hydrate the outer layer of your skin, this dermatologically backed blend of ingredients relieves irritation and discomfort, improving the quality of sensitive skin.

What Is Sensitive Skin?

An umbrella term for a range of skin problems, sensitive skin covers dry, oily, acne-prone, rosacea-prone and psoriasis-prone skin, affecting 70% of the population, it is often triggered by chemicals, stress, hormones, diet and environmental factors. Impacting various parts of the body, sensitive skin can sting, burn and be downright uncomfortable. Luckily the gentle ingredients in Cetaphil defend against the five signs of skin sensitivity, relieving dryness, irritation, roughness, tightness and weakened skin barrier to leave your skin supple, soothed and hydrated.

Cetaphil For Dry Skin

Over-cleansing dry skin can strip out essential oils, exacerbating the condition and making the dryness worse. Enriched with glycerin, hyaluronic acid and shea butter, Cetaphil's cleansers lock in moisture to keep dry skin nourished and hydrated. What’s more Cetaphil’s formulas are also hypoallergenic, meaning they’re less likely to cause skin reactions or irritations on already sensitive skin.

The product that started it all, Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser, is perfect for daily makeup removal on dry skin. Recommended by dermatologists, this gentle cleanser does not strip the skin of its protective oils or emollients, maintaining your skin's natural pH balance. Fragrance-free and non-comedogenic, it’s gentle enough for children, teens and adults to use on the face, hands and body.

After cleansing, follow up with Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion. Specially formulated to soothe chronically dry skin, this non-greasy formula is non-irritating and long-lasting, the emollient-enriched formula binds moisture to your skin.

Cetaphil For Oily And Acne-Prone Skin

Harsh cleansers can dry out your skin, causing it to produce more acne-inducing oils. Gently cleansing with Cetaphil’s non-comedogenic products keeps your pores clear, helping to minimise and prevent breakouts.

Another reason to use Cetaphil if you’re prone to acne flare-ups and oily skin is that it’s enriched with soothing ingredients like aloe vera and chamomile, which soothe redness and inflammation associated with acne, keeping your skin healthy and clear.

Designed especially for acne-prone skin, Cetaphil Oily Skin Cleanser gently removes unwanted impurities from your skin without leaving your skin dry and tight. Formulated with niacinamide, panthenol, and vitamin E, it preserves your natural skin barrier, leaving your skin deeply cleansed and nourished.

Craving refreshed, smooth skin? This Cetaphil Gentle Exfoliating Scrub is enriched with bamboo extract, vitamin E, and pro-vitamin B5 to gently remove dead skin cells and impurities without drying out sensitive, acne-prone skin.

Cetaphil For Redness-Prone Skin

Perfect for restoring skin overnight, the Cetaphil Pro Sensitive Red Night Cream reduces the appearance of redness, the intensely hydrating formula locking in moisture to leave you with even-toned, comfortably smooth skin.

Supporting your skin’s natural protective barrier, this dermatologically tested Cetaphil Daily Defence Moisture SPF50+ shields sensitive skin from UVA and UVB radiation. Fragrance-free and non-comedogenic, it can be used daily to support rosacea-prone skin, keeping your skin hydrated and safe.
