Our Heritage — Promise
It started with science, and became a promise
In 1947, Cetaphil® Cleansing Lotion was invented by a pharmacist as a safe and simple formula with which to mix dermatological remedies. By 1964, Cetaphil® Cleansing Lotion was recognized by dermatologists as a stand-alone skin care product that was gentle enough for all skin types or conditions.
What started as a simple formulation recommended as an effective alternative to traditional soap cleansers is known today as Cetaphil® Gentle Skin Cleanser.
Now, more than 60 years later, our product offerings have grown substantially and we’re leveraging advanced skin care technology to continue to bring you new products to compliment those you already know and love. Much has changed throughout the years, but our promise to you has remained the same: our products will help you restore, protect and maintain your skin’s natural balance.
What is Cetaphil® brand’s cornerstone? Innovative technology anchored in time-tested truth. That’s why our products are recommended by more dermatologists than any other brand. Healthy skin is what we believe in for people at every age, every stage and every day. Just like it has been since 1947 — we promise.
Our ongoing commitment to healthy skin
Every year, nearly 100 children with severe and fatal skin diseases get a week away from stares or bullies and instead experience the childhood joys of summer camp. It’s a week where kids get to be kids, friends are made and connections last a lifetime. It is called Camp Wonder.
Camp Wonder is free of charge, supported by dedicated volunteers and a medically trained staff of doctors and nurses.
The Cetaphil® brand is proud to partner with Camp Wonder, providing a generous grant, employee volunteers and gentle Cetaphil® products both during the camp and throughout the year to help support children's skin health needs. Our commitment goes beyond a short-term promise with plans to support the organization for years to come.
