CeraVe’s acne range is expanding.

The brand is catering to those with acne-prone skin by launching not one, but two new innovations — Acne Control Cleanser and Acne Control Gel.

Developed with the aid of dermatologists, these new launches are formulated with 2% salicylic acid to help clear and prevent acne where it starts, while also restoring the skin’s natural barrier with three essential ceramides.
