Developed in the USA by clinicians and dermatologists in 2005, CeraVe Skincare is a unique skincare system that uses the skin’s own defence system, ceramide, to enhance and improve the texture and quality of the skin.
Skin naturally contains ceramide – it makes up around half of your skin’s protective barrier and defends the skin against everyday damage from pollution, dirt, and exposure to UV rays. However, over-exposure can easily damage this protective mantle and cause rashes, dry and irritated skin or dull, lifeless skin.
To fight back and to reinforce that natural protective layer, CeraVe Skincare products contain a combination of three essential ceramides – ceramides 1, 3 and 6-II, as well as essential fatty acids and other lipids.
CeraVe Skincare has created a unique system called MultiVesicular Emulsion Technology (MVE), which releases hydrating ingredients over 24 hours to keep skin healthy and supple, as well as reinforcing that natural ceramide barrier. It sounds highly technical, but it actually works in harmony with your skin for real, lasting results.
Hydrate, restore, replenish – the core values of CeraVe
The best kind of skincare is one that works with your skin’s natural defences and properties, rather than trying to overlay them. So the use of ceramides in the MVE delivery system restores and replenishes the skin’s own mantle, as well as hydrating the skin for a more youthful look. The fragrance-free formulas are suitable even if you have very sensitive skin, making CeraVe Skincare products accessible to everyone.
The range is simple but incredibly effective, with measurable results that are clinically proven to improve the quality of your skin. They include moisturising cream for the face and body, as well as hydrating and foaming cleansers.
