CeraVe was developed by a board of US dermatologists. The formulators of CeraVe discovered that a blend of humectants, emollients and three specific ceramides help to restore the skin barrier, giving plump, hydrated skin. CeraVe uses a patented technology, known as MultiVesicular Emulsion Technology (MVE), that gradually releases the ceramide enriched formula over an extended period of time. It’s these two technologies – ceramides and MVE – that give CeraVe its name.
CeraVe delivers high quality products that help achieve healthy, hydrated skin at affordable prices. The entire product range is fragrance-free, paraben-free, allergy-tested and non-comedogenic, meaning it is safe for the entire family. To help your skin stay hydrated throughout the Winter months, whether on the face or body, there are certain ingredients to look out for that will soothe your skin – most notably, ceramides.
This non-foaming lotion effectively cleanses, hydrates and helps restore the protective skin barrier, thanks to a blend of ceramides, hyaluronic acid and glycerin. Especially designed for normal to dry skin, the soap-free, oil-free formulation is so gentle it can even be used on children aged three-years-old and above, gently removing dirt and oil from the skin but thanks to the sophisticated MVE delivery system, also helps to increase skin hydration after just one use. Also available in a 473ml version for €11.
The hero product of the range, this formulation is suitable for use on eczema-prone and atopic skin. The rich, oil-free formula helps restore the protective skin barrier and provides all-day hydration, thanks to the combination of ceramides, hyaluronic acid, glycerin and the MVE delivery system. Despite its proven moisturising ability, the cream is non-greasy and gives a soft, powdery finish. Also available in a 177ml tube for €10.
An ultra lightweight facial moisturiser, designed to be used under a separate Sun protection by day or alone at night, the non-comedogenic formula, ideal for those with normal to dry skin, is rich in ceramides, hyaluronic acid and niacinamide. A highly efficient moisturiser, the MVE delivery system ensures it continues to be effective long after the initial application, offering long-lasting hydration and helping to restore the protective skin barrier.
Containing the same powerful combination of ceramides, hyaluronic acid, glycerin and the MVE delivery system, this lightweight, oil-free formulation is designed for those who prefer to use a lotion rather than a cream. Easily absorbed, yet still offering all-day hydration, it can be used all over the body, including the face. Also available in a 473ml version for €14.
