The CeraVe Technology

The secret behind CeraVe formulations lies in its ingredients and unique delivery system, known as Multivesicular Emulsion (MVE) technology that help restore the skin’s natural barrier. CeraVe products contain 3 essential (skin similar) ceramides, cholesterol and fatty acids that are slowly released over time to help restore skin barrier function. This delivery system, consists of a series of multi-layer concentric spheres containing moisturizing ingredients that are released as each layer dissolves to provide long lasting hydration. Unlike the traditional quick burst release found in most topical formulations , MVE spheres are similar to an onion with many layers that can be peeled away, melting over time and allowing the skin to be moisturized with ingredients like glycerin and hyaluronic acid.

A Dermatologist Perspective

“CeraVe’s success comes from a simple recipe; driving innovation and development in conjunction with Dermatologists. CeraVe created an entirely new category of moisturizers, a category in which CeraVe remains ‘Best in Class’. For this and other reasons, I have a strong conviction for the brand and I know that many dermatologists have heard from their patients that CeraVe is the best moisturizer they’ve ever used.”
