About Cetaphil

Cetaphil is a skincare brand that is recommended by dermatologists, and is today used by millions of people with sensitive skin from all over the world.

The original product, Cetaphil Cleansing Lotion, was invented by a pharmacist in 1947 specifically for dermatological needs. The product quickly became popular, and today, generations later, is called Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser. While the name has changed, the formula has remained essentially the same—and Gentle Skin Cleanser remains a worldwide favorite and our bestselling product.

The essence of Cetaphil is in the name: ‘-phil’ means ‘love’ while ‘Cet’ comes from the hydrating agent cetearyl alcohol. Cetaphil therefore embodies the love for soothing and keeping skin hydrated.

Cetaphil today offers a product line that includes face and body moisturizers, cleansers, baby care, sun care and products for common skin issues. Across its different offerings, Cetaphil is committed to providing users with effective and gentle skincare formulas that help strengthen and protect even sensitive skin. Cetaphil is the No. 1 dermatological skincare brand in Singapore*. Cetaphil understands that great skincare leads to glowing, beautiful, healthy skin—and that healthy skin is integral to leading a healthy life.
