Did you know that 2017 is the 70th global anniversary of Cetaphil, Galderma’s dermatologically formulated skincare range clinically proven to strengthen and protect even the most sensitive skin? In the Philippines, the brand has been around for 21 years, and that’s an astounding feat!
Also, the name Cetaphil is derived from the main ingredient, cetyl alcohol, and the Greek suffix “phil” derived from “philia” meaning “love”. The name is apt, since cetyl alcohol is a highly moisturizing ingredient.
Happy 70th anniversary, Cetaphil family!
Cetaphil has a 5.5 pH, as well, which matches the skin's natural pH. This makes it super gentle on skin, and perfect for different skin types, whether it's dry, sensitive, oily, combination or just plain normal.
No wonder Cetaphil is considered the #1 prescribed skincare brand by dermatologists and pediatricians!
The Cetaphil Restoraderm Body Moisturizer comes in one size only (295ml) and costs Php1581.
A Quick History
The first product, Cetaphil Cleansing Lotion (known today as Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser) was invented in 1947 in Texas. It was such a hit that now, 70 years later, the cleanser boasts the same gentle formula, and the brand Cetaphil is available in more than 70 countries worldwide. The cleanser also spawned a wide range of everyday products, from cleansers to moisturizers, 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 dermatologists and other healthcare professionals across the world.
The Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser comes in various sizes. The 60ml bottle retails Php120.50 and the 473ml one is available for Php697.
Products to Love
Cetaphil would not be the beloved brand today without its wide range of gentle products.
The Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser and Moisturizing Lotion (Pphp881, 237ml) are recommended for neonatal use, the Cetaphil Baby range is ideal for babies with delicate, yet normal skin, and the Cetaphil Restoraderm (body wash - Php899, 295ml | moisturizer - Php1581, 295ml) is great for babies diagnosed with Atopic Dermatitis or Eczema. Acne prone skin, meanwhile, won't breakout using the Cetaphil Oily skin cleanser (Php698, 125ml).
Yeah, the prices are a little steep, but if you want great, healthy skin, better invest in good quality skincare products that neither clog pores nor cause a bad reaction.
