Galderma’s Cetaphil is now on its 70th year!

Cetaphil 70th anniversary

Did you know that Cetaphil is now 70 years old? Wow! I never thought that the brand is in the market for that long already.  I started knowing the brand when i was in my teenage years, where my acne breakouts are at its peak. It was actually recommended by a friend and this brand helped me a lot with my acne problem. 

Galderma's Cetaphil is now on its 70th year!Just recently, Galderma, maker of Cetaphil, just celebrated Cetaphil’s 70th anniversary and I was really glad to witness this milestone.

“Cetaphil has been used by people with sensitive skin for more than three generations” said Neil Popplewell, Vice President Consumer Business, Nestlé Skin Health. “Over the last 70 years, we have worked closely with medical experts to better understand people’s skin needs. This has allowed us to provide different solutions adapted to 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 it completes your health routine. We will continue to develop the brand and make it more accessible to consumers worldwide. We look forward to the next 70 years of healthy skin with Cetaphil.”

Let me share with you some few facts about this amazing brand. 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. Comes from the word ‘phil’ at the end means ‘love’, while the ‘Cet’ comes from the fatty alcohol which is used as an emollient – Cetyl alcohol. ‘Cetaphil’, therefore, is the love of softening and soothing skin.

Customers soon recognized its gentle cleansing power and from then on, the Cetaphil range of products started to grow. Now, 70 years later, the brand is available in more than 70 countries worldwide and offers a wide range of everyday products from, cleansers, moisturizers, 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, it has become one of the top skincare brands recommended by dermatologists and other healthcare professionals across the world.

“With its gentle and clinically proven formulas, Cetaphil reinforces and protects the structure of the skin – even in people with the most sensitive and delicate skin” explained Dr Eszter Baltas, dermatologist who contributed to developing Cetaphil products and now Associate Professor at the  Department of Dermatology and Allergology in Szeged, Hungary. “Thanks to its long heritage, based on in-depth understanding of dermatology, Cetaphil offers reliable, scientifically-tested solutions.”

I really like this brand. Why? because it is dermatologically formulated and clinically proven to strengthen and protect even the most sensitive skin. Plus, the dermatologists and even the pediatricians do trust this brand. With that, you would know the efficacy is high and it really works.
