CeraVe intros serum, cleanser for acne-prone skin

By Gisselle Gaitan - 12/18/2019

CeraVe users are in for not one, but two new surprises.

The brand has dropped its new Acne Foaming Cream Cleanser with Benzoyl Peroxide and Resurfacing Retinol Serum, which were created with dermatologists to meet the needs of those with acne-prone skin, the company said.

"Acne is a common skin concern that affects millions of people both physically and emotionally," Derrick Booker, vice president of marketing at CeraVe said. "As the number one dermatologist-recommended moisturizer brand for acne, CeraVe worked with dermatologists to develop a range of products designed to both treat acne and allow skin to heal, underscoring our mission of providing therapeutic skincare solutions for all people."

For the treatment and restoration of healthy skin, the brand developed its Acne Foaming Cream Cleanser to be the first step of any skin care routine. Formulated with its 4% benzoyl peroxide to help clear acne breakouts and prevent new acne from forming, the product also contains hyaluronic acid and ceramides to help maintain the skin barrier.

As the second step in a regimen system, users can turn to the Resurfacing Retinol Serum, which has been clinically tested to reduce the appearance of post-acne marks and pores. After use, skin tone may appear visibly brighter and have improved texture, the company said.

Both products are non-comedogenic and contain a combination of three essential ceramides —1, 3 and 6-II — to restore the skin barrier.

The Resurfacing Retinol Serum is currently available for purchase nationwide and the Acne Foaming Cream Cleanser will hit shelves in January.
