What Makes Cetaphil Different?

The Cetaphil team is dedicated to skin health, not superficial fixes. Our work is based in science and research, and to make sure that our products truly take care of your skin, we work closely with dermatologists to develop our cleansers, moisturizers, baby products and sun care solutions. Cetaphil products are suited to even the most sensitive skin, which is why dermatologists have been recommending us for over 70 years

Who can use Cetaphil?

Cetaphil products are designed to be gentle and effective on even the most sensitive skin. This means that whether you have generally normal skin, or have a skin condition such as acne, rosacea or eczema, Cetaphil respects your skin and can provide the cleansing, moisturizing and protection that your skin needs.

We have a wide range of items available, including products made specifically for babies’ skin and hair, as well as skin care items designed with dermatologists to help take care of redness, acne and dryness-prone skin.

CETAPHIL GENTLE SKIN CLEANSER

I read that you don’t have to wash Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser off—is this true?

Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser is so gentle that if you choose, you can apply it to your skin and then simply wipe it off with a cotton pad—it’s even more gentle to your skin than water! However, many of our users prefer rinsing off Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser with water like more traditional cleansers. That’s perfectly fine, too.

 

I have oily skin. Can I use Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser?

Yes, Cetaphil is suited to all skin types, and effectively removes excess oil, dirt and makeup. If you have especially oily skin, you can also try Cetaphil Gentle Foaming Cleanser — it does a great job of mattifying skin without irritation.

 

Is Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser a facial wash or a body wash?

Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser is designed to be gentle enough for daily facial cleansing, but can also be used in the shower as a gentle and effective body cleanser.

Does Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser effectively remove makeup?

Yes, while Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser has a clinically-proven gentle formula, it is effective at removing excess oil, dirt and makeup.

I heard that Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser contains parabens. Aren’t parabens harmful?

Parabens are the most widely used preservatives in cosmetic products. The FDA and other health authority bodies worldwide assess that at present, there is no safety reason for consumers to be concerned about the use of cosmetics containing parabens.
