What makes CeraVe different than other skincare brands?
Developed with dermatologists, our mission is to provide advanced skincare products that do more than just moisturize the skin’s surface. CeraVe is the first and only brand to offer a full line of skin care products that contain an exclusive combination of three scientifically-identified vital ceramides. CeraVe products penetrate the skin’s surface, infuse it with moisture, and lock it in for truly long-lasting results and beautiful, healthy looking skin.
How did the CeraVe brand begin?
In 2005, researchers in the U.S. partnered with leading dermatologists to develop the CeraVe brand - a line of skin care products designed to help repair and strengthen the skin barrier. Experts understood that the skin barrier serves an important function in promoting healthy skin and that key components of the skin barrier (ceramides) are deficient in compromised skin conditions. CeraVe is the first and only brand to offer a full line of products containing essential ceramides that healthy skin needs.

Are CeraVe products tested on animals?
No, CeraVe products are not tested on animals.
Are CeraVe products non-comedogenic?
The majority of CeraVe products are non-comedogenic, so they won’t clog pores or cause acne. Please check the label or product page for more information. All CeraVe products are fragrance-free and non-irritating.
What is MVE® Technology?
The patented Multivesicular Emulsion (MVE) technology used in CeraVe products releases key ingredients slowly over time, allowing them to absorb into the skin to hydrate and nourish, as well as help repair, restore and maintain the skin’s natural barrier. This means that CeraVe products keep working to help restore and maintain the natural protective function of the skin barrier long after you apply them, up to 24 hours after application.
What is InVisibleZincTM?
InVisibleZincTM technology uses a revolutionary, naturally sourced, micro-fine zinc oxide to deliver a unique dry, clear finish on the skin as compared to regular zinc which could result in a very thick product that would not absorb well. The elegant, lightweight, oil-free CeraVe sunscreen lotions spread easily and provide broad spectrum protection from the sun’s damaging UVA and UVB rays.
