Skincare Developed with Dermatologists with Essential Ceramides
In 2005, CeraVe’s dermatologists developed a line of skincare products enriched with a blend of three essential ceramides (ceramides 1, 3, and 6-II), fatty acids, and other lipids to help repair and strengthen the skin’s natural barrier.
A revolutionary delivery system was developed and named MultiVesicular Emulsion Technology (MVE), which releases moisturizing ingredients over the course of 24 hours, layer by layer, to help keep skin soft all day long.
CeraVe Is Born
With the combination of ceramides and MVE, CeraVe launched in 2006 with three core products Moisturizing Cream, Moisturizing Lotion, and Hydrating Cleanser.
CeraVe currently offers over 70 products delivering skincare products for all, developed with the expertise of dermatologists. As the affordable, accessible, dermatologist-recommended solution to hydrate, restore, and replenish skin, CeraVe has received more Seal of AcceptanceTM awards from the National Eczema Association than any other brand.
Ceramides make up 50% of the skin barrier
Ceramides are lipids (oils) found naturally in skin and are essential in supporting the skin barrier and retaining moisture. Without ceramides, skin can become dry, itchy, or irritated. Ceramides restore and hydrate When ceramide levels are low, the skin barrier is weakened, allowing moisture to escape from skin. Applying ceramides directly to skin helps restore its barrier and retain moisture.
Ceramides are in all CeraVe Products
The unique combination of 3 essential ceramides in CeraVe (ceramides 1, 3, 6-II) help replenish skin’s existing ceramides, relieving dry skin, by reducing moisture loss, increasing hydration, and restoring the skin barrier. Explore our full range of products.
