Bar Soap FAQ

Cetaphil® skin is healthy skin

Created for Dermatologists to be effective yet gentle enough for the most sensitive skin.

I Can't Find my old Cleansing Bar. What happened?

Cetaphil® Gentle Cleansing Anti-Bacterial Bar has been replaced with a newly reformulated bar and is now called the Cetaphil Deep Cleansing Bar. The name is new, but the Cetaphil quality and gentleness you expect are the same. The Cetaphil Deep Cleansing Bar deeply cleans and removes dirt, oil and other impurities without stripping the skin. It's non-comedogenic, non-irritating and suitable for all skin types.

What is the Difference between the Previous Anti-Bacterial Bar and the New Cetaphil Deep Cleansing Bar?

We have removed triclosan and triclocarbon, and have formulated the Deep Cleansing Bar with 5 nourishing ingredients to gently cleanse without stripping or drying the skin. This change is part of a larger plan to phase out the use of triclosan and triclocarbon across all our products by the end of 2017.

Why was the Change Necessary?

Even though both ingredients have proven to be safe and have yet to show any bacterial resistance, we've found that we can provide an ingredient solution that consumers prefer to use to care for their skin.
Cetaphil was created for dermatologists to treat the most sensitive, dry and delicate skin. Doctors and consumers trust Cetaphil to give them the healthiest skin with safe, gentle and effective products.
