Finally, a tone-perfecting routine for sensitive skin

By May Dedicatoria Published Oct 25, 2020 5:00 am

Have you ever wondered why all Dermatologists, even Pediatricians, recommend Cetaphil for flare-ups, acne breakouts, and as a regular daily cleanser for normal skin?

The cult favorite is non-drying, fragrance-free (meaning, zero alcohol), oil-free and has a neutral pH (5.5), which makes it even gentler than water. Whatever your skin type and concern, Cetaphil is the gentlest cleanser you can use on your skin.

“Cetaphil has been recommended by Dermatologists for over 70 years, and is today used by millions with sensitive skin from all over the world. It has been available in the Philippines for more than 25 years and is still the most trusted and recommended brand by consumers and Dermatologists,” confirms Galderma Philippines Inc. General Manager Raghu-Raghavendra Sadashiva.

The brand offers a product line that includes face and body moisturizers, cleansers, baby-care and sun-care products, among others.

“Our users encompass different ages and stages of our consumers, but more than that, Cetaphil has been known as Dermatologist-credentialed brand. We offer products that fit for every skin type, from healthy skin to sensitive, compromised and now for uneven skin tone,” he adds.

Cetaphil Gentle Cleanser has no strong pimple-fighting ingredients — but that’s basically one factor that makes it the safest skin-care option. When the skin seems too sensitive, inflamed or is undergoing treatment, you should avoid products that may irritate it more or alter the desired treatment outcome.

Now, for those with highly sensitive skin but need skin-care products that can effectively correct dark spots and brighten skin tone, the tried-and-tested brand has launched its Bright Healthy Radiance line.

Staying true to its promise of using only pure and gentle ingredients, in the new line, carefully selected were premium actives such as Niacinamide and Sea Daffodil to form its GentleBright Technology. This complex promises to visibly correct dark spots in as early as four weeks without irritation.

Niacinamide, a form of vitamin B3 (niacin) and an antioxidant, enhances DNA repair in UV-damaged skin and is believed to protect skin against melanoma. Meanwhile, Sea Daffodil or Sea Lily (Pancratium maritimum) has been proven to significantly inhibit melanin synthesis on B16 melanocytes or, simply put, prevent skin pigmentation.

Galderma Philippines Inc. Business Unit Head, Jade Silva-netto Ponoc shares that the new line has stemmed from a robust consumer research.

“More than having lighter skin tone, the consumers say they want their skin tone to look its best by removing the harsh effects of the sun, acne or other external factors that cause dark spots. The complex ingredients act at each stage of the melanin processes, without compromising their natural protective role,” she says.

“Niacinamide lightens and evens out skin tone by controlling melanin transfer to the upper layers of the skin. Sea daffodil is a natural extract proven to reduce the size and color of dark spots. The complex acts in perfect synergy with xylitol, a natural moisturizer, to reveal intensely hydrated, bright and radiant skin.”

The Cetaphil Bright Healthy Radiance line

Finally, people with sensitive skin need not look for other brightening products to mix-and-match with the classic Cetaphil Daily Cleanser. From facial to body skin care, cleansing to morning/night moisturization, here’s the exciting lineup of the new Cetaphil Bright Healthy Radiance.

Non-drying Brightness Reveal Creamy Cleanser leaves the face feeling hydrated, smooth and radiant. When mixed with water, the creamy texture transforms into a comforting lather that leaves skin feeling soft and smooth. Dead skin cells, dust and impurities fade away to reveal luminous skin.

Instantly illuminate and smoothen skin with the Brightness Refresh Toner for a more even complexion. This brightening toner gives instant hydration, while softening and smoothing the skin. After four weeks, skin tone becomes visibly more even.

Avoid sun damage with the Brightening Day Protection Cream with SPF15, a moisturizing cream that effectively protects the skin. It helps hydrate sensitive skin while protecting it against the damaging effects of the sun.

Get intense hydration with the Brightening Night Comfort Cream, a cream that helps brighten and even skin tone while you sleep. Every night, it works to correct dark spots, revive complexion clarity and replenish skin’s moisture, so that you wake up with radiant skin every morning.

Instantly smooth and hydrate skin with the Brightening Lotion, a body lotion that magnifies your skin’s brightness and evens skin tone, without irritating or weakening the skin barrier.

Non-drying Brightness Reveal Body Wash and Brightness Reveal Bar leave the body feeling soft and noticeably radiant. Both gently remove dirt, impurities and dullness to reveal the radiance within.

“This pandemic brought in rapid changes in the way consumers shop and look for products. With the rising need for ‘skinthusiasts’ looking to brighten their skin safely, gently and effectively, the new Cetaphil Bright Healthy Radiance is clinically safe and recommended by skin experts, that’s why this is really an opportune moment to launch this new portfolio,” says Cetaphil Brand Manager Abe Mationg.

Cetaphil Bright Healthy Radiance products are hypoallergenic, fragrance-free and clinically tested to respect sensitive skin. If symptoms persist, consult your doctor.
