The CeraVe story began in 2005 after experts noticed that many skin conditions such as acne, eczema, psoriasis and dry skin all had one thing in common: a compromised skin barrier. Developed with dermatologists, CeraVe offers a complete line of skincare products that contain three essential ceramides enhanced with a revolutionary delivery system to help restore the skin’s natural protective barrier.

Science That Goes Skin Deep

The formulation of skin-identical ceramides with MultiVesicular Emulsion Technology (MVE) was the birth of CeraVe. We have the only line of skincare products with a unique blend of three essential ceramides, plus patented MVE technology that gradually releases our ceramide-enriched formula over an extended period of time. MVE is like a sphere with a series of layers that slowly dissolves, releasing the ingredients into your skin. The product continues to work after it is applied, hydrating your skin all day in just one use. This system—along with our unique combination of skin-identical ceramides—helps replenish your skin’s existing ceramides, relieves dry skin by reducing moisture loss, increases hydration and helps restore the skin barrier.

The Ceramides Difference

Every CeraVe product has 3 Essential Ceramides

Ceramides are lipids that form the skin barrier and help retain moisture. Your skin naturally contains ceramides that may become depleted over time, contributing to dry and irritated skin. Replenishing ceramide levels helps restore the skin's barrier, allowing your skin to seal in moisture and seal out irritants and impurities. All CeraVe products contain three essential ceramides to help restore the skin’s natural barrier with continuous release technology for all-day hydration.
