At CeraVe, we work with dermatologists to develop our products and have done this since the brand was founded in 2005. Our formulations, ingredients, and even product ideas are developed with dermatologists. Developed with dermatologists is more than a line in our logo – it’s at the very core of who we are and a key part of our brand DNA.

Facts About CeraVe

  • Our products are formulated with a blend of three essential ceramides (ceramides 1, 3, and 6-II), fatty acids, and other lipids that are found in skin’s natural barrier.
  • MultiVesicular Emulsion Delivery Technology (MVE) allows many of our products to release moisturizing ingredients over the course of 24 hours
  • Available at most major retail outlets, CeraVe dermatologist-approved skincare products are an accessible option for those who want high-quality products without a prescription.



Developed with Dermatologists since the beginning

From our inception, dermatologists have been integral to the CeraVe story. Our journey began with a vision to create a new standard in skincare, guided by the expertise of leading skin experts. Dermatologists' insights into skin health and their understanding of skin conditions like eczema, acne, and dry skin have been vital in shaping our portfolio.

This collaboration goes beyond mere consultation; it's a deep, ongoing partnership that ensures every CeraVe product is crafted with professional knowledge and an unwavering commitment to skin health. Our pledge to work with dermatologists is not just a part of our history; it's a promise we renew with every product we create.

Made with Ingredients 
Rooted In Science

Ceramides are the cornerstone of CeraVe's approach to skincare. Recognizing their critical role in maintaining the skin's natural barrier, we have been infusing our products with three essential ceramides since the brand's beginning. This trio of ceramides – 1, 3, and 6-II – work synergistically to hydrate skin and help lock in essential moisture. Developed with dermatologists, our unique formulations help to fortify skin’s natural protective barrier against environmental aggressors and prevent moisture loss.


Utilizing Revolutionary Technology

At the heart of CeraVe's innovation is our MultiVesicular Emulsion (MVE) Delivery Technology, a revolutionary delivery system that we've been using since our earliest days. Developed with dermatologists, MVE Delivery Technology is designed to release our ceramide-enriched formula over an extended period, ensuring lasting hydration and barrier support. This time-release mechanism, incorporated in many products across our portfolio, allows for steady, controlled absorption of ingredients, providing continuous hydration and protection to the skin throughout the day.

Our commitment to this advanced technology underscores our dedication to developing skincare solutions that offer more than momentary relief – they provide enduring, science-backed skincare benefits.
