CeraVe Foaming Cleanser benefits
Maintain skin’s natural protective barrier
Its unique formulation comprises three essential ceramides – Ceramide NP, AP and EOP. Ceramides are basically naturally produced lipids of the skin that play an essential role in providing a skin barrier and retaining the moisture intact. Devoid of the ceramides the skin barrier gets weakened due to which skin hydration gets affected.
Skin strengthening and repair
Niacinamide is also known as vitamin B3. It possesses antioxidants, and anti-ageing and anti-inflammatory properties promoting a healthier skin barrier by increasing ceramide synthesis thereby increasing skin strength.
Phytosphingosine, also a naturally occurring skin lipid, acts in skin defence owing to its antimicrobial action.
Restores skin moisture
Hyaluronic acid and glycerin are very popular humectant moisturizers used to maintain the smooth skin texture by keeping it hydrated.
The presence of citric acid acts as an exfoliator for the skin lifting off the dead surface cells and giving a smooth finish.
