Cult fragrance-free skincare brand CeraVe launched in the UK just few months back. CeraVe is a huge drugstore brand in the US developed with Dermatologists with a blend of three essential ceramides (ceramides 1, 3, and 6-II), fatty acids, and other lipids to help repair and strengthen the skin’s natural barrier. The range is the kinder, gentler alternative to Cetaphil.
The top layers of your skin are only healthy when they contain around 50% ceramides. CeraVe products are pocket-friendly source of ceramides that are essential for skin barrier. All CeraVe products are fragrance-free and are suitable for sensitive skin.
CeraVe works on MultiVesicular Emulsion Technology (MVE), which releases moisturizing ingredients over the course of 24 hours, layer by layer, to help keep skin soft all day long.
CeraVe currently offers over 70 products delivering skincare products for all. However, people in the UK will have access to some of the products initially and others will follow.
- Ceramides 1, 3 and 6-II
- Niacinamide: helps restore the protective barrier and soothe the skin.
- Hyaluronic acid: helps keep skin hydrated.
- Non-comedogenic: does not clog pores.
- Fragrance-Free and non-drying formula: suitable for sensitive skin.

This fragrance-free cream moisturises and helps restore the protective skin barrier of the face and body. Its light and non-greasy texture, enriched with 3 essential ceramides and hyaluronic acid, provides hydration throughout the day and from the first application. The cream although rich is so lightweight that it won’t clog pores and will absorb quickly giving a velvety feel. I use this for healing dry spots/patches on my face (combination sensitive skin) to restore hydration quickly. I also apply this cream all over my body (dry skin) to make my skin soft, supple and hydrated throughout the day.
The best way to use this is apply on wet skin just after shower so the hydration can be locked into the skin for longer.
