Cetaphil develops new DermaControl line to battle acne-prone skin


FORT WORTH, Texas — The Cetaphil brand of cleansers and moisturizers has announced the launch of Cetaphil DermaControl products for acne-prone skin.

The line is comprised of Cetaphil DermaControl foam wash and DermaControl moisturizer SPF 30. It is positioned as the first skin care line of its kind designed to complement an acne regimen for sensitive, acne-prone skin.

The Cetaphil DermaControl foam wash uses zinc technology in a new generation surfactant cleanser to offer a breakthrough formulation with fewer preservatives to benefit the skin. The DermaControl foam wash’s oil-control formula is gentle enough to use with prescription acne treatments and leaves skin cleansed without stripping or drying, the company stated.

For patients undergoing prescription acne-treatments, using a product containing an SPF is vital. The DermaControl moisturizer SPF 30 features patented oleosome technology to provide broad-spectrum UV coverage and sun protection with fewer UV filtering chemicals. The moisturizer also utilizes micropearl technology to provide a mattefying effect, ceramide technology to help restore the barrier function and zinc technology, which has been associated with reduced surface oil and shine control for oily, acne-prone skin, the company stated.

The Cetaphi DermaControl foam wash has an average price of $10.99. The DermaControl moisturizer SPF 30 has an average price of $15.99. Both products are launching at retail in March. The Cetaphil DermaControl products are the second addition to the Cetaphil brand’s extension into disease-specific products. In 2010, Cetaphil launched Restoraderm to help manage the symptoms of eczema and atopic dermatitis.
