CETAPHIL is a gentle skincare brand that has been recommended by dermatologists1 for over 70 years, and is today used by millions of people with sensitive skin from all around the world.

Cetaphil 2020 Full Range

Invented in 1947 by a pioneering pharmacist in Texas, the first product - “Cetaphil Cleansing Lotion“ - known today as Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser - still uses the same formula. Quickly recognised for its gentle cleansing power, the Cetaphil range of products started to grow. Today Cetaphil is available in more than 70 countries worldwide and offers a wide range of everyday products from cleansers, moisturisers and sun protection, to baby products and solutions for sensitive skin conditions such as acne, eczema and rosacea.

Specifically formulated to provide effective skincare for a variety of skin types and conditions, Cetaphil has become one of the top skincare brands recommended by dermatologists1 and other healthcare professionals across the world.

Galderma has worked closely with medical experts to better understand people’s skin needs. This has allowed us to provide different solutions, which we have adapted to suit these needs and to make the Cetaphil range what it is today. Like regular exercise and a well-balanced diet, maintaining healthy skin is essential for your overall well-being, so using Cetaphil products can round out your health routine.
