A moisturizer that’s suited for all skin types? We’re here for it!

Published Sep 23, 2022 4:30 pm

It’s safe to say that Cetaphil has been a constant in our routines over the years; ask people what their go-to skin products are — from your peers, friends, and even family members — and you’d definitely hear this brand’s famous cleanser mentioned. It’s been with us since our high school years, to the break-out era of our college days, and the fast-paced life of adulthood. And everyone’s current fave, the Cetaphil Moisturising Lotion, is testament to what everyone is looking for in a skincare staple: 48-hour hydration that doesn’t harm our sensitive skin — it’s for everyone!

The pioneers in catering for sensitive skin, Cetaphil launches the Sensitive Skin Lab to celebrate 75 years of providing holistic skincare globally, for all skin types and ages, starting with the Cleansing Lotion, many years later is known today as the Gentle Skin Cleanser. An already iconic brand known for soothing, replenishing and protecting the skin through its gentle ingredients, Cetaphil has improved over the years with a spectrum of everything you need: moisturizers, cleansers, skin brightening, sunscreens, and even baby care.

Reformulated for better protection

The product that proves this point is the Cetaphil Moisturising Lotion — a reformulated version of their famous line, now with new ingredients like glycerin (for the dryness), niacinamide (for strengthening the skin barrier), and panthenol (to soothe and restore dry skin).

For the dry skin type, the Cetaphil Moisturising Cream has an ultra-rich consistency to it, and is tested to accelerate the reparation of the skin. It rehydrates, maintains the hydration for 48 hours after a single application, and ultimately restores the skin barrier with complete recovery after one week.

Other products that deserve a try are the Gentle Skin Cleanser and the Cetaphil Sun SPF50+ — completing package for everyone who wish to build their own skincare routine.

To celebrate its newest innovation in an already iconic product, Cetaphil launched the Sensitive Skin Lab last Aug. 31 at the Maybank Performing Arts Theater in BGC. Hosted by Alexandra Rocha-Araneta, guests were given the chance to chat with dermatologist Dr. Coreen Copuyoc Sampedro to impart her knowledge on how Cetaphil’s ingredients are the best for everyone’s skin. Skin representatives from Cetaphil were also present in the event to assist the guests on what products they need by personally testing their skins with a topical device that determines its moisture levels numerically.

“We are backed with clinical science and research […] Our products are dermatologist-tested. Those are the things that we put on for us to be able to meet the customers, for our shoppers to choose us,” Jade Silva-netto Ponoc; Business Unit Head of Galderma said, adding that their clinical research on niacinamide, the best ingredient for sensitive skin, is the new standard for their reformulated line. And being in a tropical country like the Philippines, of course customers would always gun for products that are lightweight, which Cetaphil offers in particular products.

Abe Mationg, Cetaphil Brand Manager, also mentioned that what they strive for is to provide a skincare line that holistically takes care of the skin both inside and out, and to be the leading and most trusted skincare line that people with varying skin types can trust.

“What’s important [for us] right now is to advocate for skincare that you want to do consistently.”

The makeshift lab served as an educational event to further spread the information about what products should be used to target specific skin issues wherein attendees were encouraged to learn why having healthy skin is the key to a healthier lifestyle and mindset.

A constant through the years

It is an understatement to say that Cetaphil understands us and what our skin needs: owning their products is integral to having healthy skin both inside and out. This makes Cetaphil an authority in the skincare industry — each and every product simply works on all types of skin across all ages, without fuss or frills.
