Its blend of key ingredients include glycerin and panthenol (vitamin B5) to hydrate, soothe and preserve the skin barrier, while niacinamide (vitamin B3) helps to smooth skin texture and to retain skin moisture barrier. Sweet almond oil and vitamin E help to immediately comfort dry, sensitive skin. By binding water to the skin, this extra strength moisturizer provides your skin with hydration for 48 hours, leaving it feeling soft and smooth.

After one week of use, Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream completely restores your skin’s moisture barrier. So use Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream as often as needed, but at best every day, especially directly after your morning shower or evening bath to lock in hydration.

Yes, Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream is good for the face, too. It is a non-greasy, rich cream and is clinically proven to be gentle on sensitive skin, so it can be used daily to keep your skin soft and smooth, and has shown significant skin barrier improvement after just three days of use. With its fragrance-free and paraben-free formula, it won’t clog pores and effectively defends against 5 signs of skin sensitivity.

After having a tattoo, it’s important to follow any aftercare instructions given to you by your tattoo artist, and you should consult a dermatologist if you experience any unusual skin reactions. However, Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream can help to keep your skin hydrated and moisturized after having a tattoo. Its gentle, hydrating ingredients can also help to protect your skin barrier, and its fragrance-free, paraben-free and hypoallergenic formula is gentle and soothing on sensitive skin, such as newly tattooed skin.

You may also want to consider using Cetaphil Healing Ointment, which is enriched with shea butter and can help soothe dry or irritated skin.

Don’t forget to protect your tattoo from the sun by using a sunscreen with at least SPF 30. Apply the sunscreen over the moisturizer and reapply as needed, especially if you are spending time outdoors.

Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream doesn’t come with an expiry date. Like many other Cetaphil products, it is formulated to be shelf-stable, which means that it can last for years provided it is not exposed to extreme temperatures. However, once opened, it’s best to use it within two years. By using it within this time, you make sure that all ingredients will be of optimal effectiveness and safety.

A single application of Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream can provide long-lasting hydration and prevent moisture loss for up to 48 hours. It significantly improves your skin’s moisture barrier within three days and restores it in just one week when regularly used. However, the duration for which Cetaphil moisturizing cream lasts depends on several factors, such as the frequency and amount you apply to your skin, your skin type, and your environmental conditions.

“The Moisturizing Cream is great for all skin types, and delivers intense hydration in a lightweight, yet rich cream that just absorbs beautifully once on the skin. It features a blend of niacinamide and panthenol that help boost and restore the skin’s moisture barrier.” 


Moisturizing Cream Quote


Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not as moisturizing as old formula Cetaphil, I understand the changes you made and on paper it looks great with the B3 etc., however in reality this formula is less moisturizing than your old one. I have been an advocate for this moisturizer for over a decade - because of me all of my family and many of my friends use Cetaphil cream. I used to constantly get compliments on how soft my skin was. This new moisturizer does not leave that same deweyness on the skin, and is not as moisturizing. Please reformulate to make this more like what it used to be. I am not sure why my original review was not accepted - I hope Cetaphil doesn’t only publish positive reviews.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Left My Skin (face) Moisturized!!! I was sitting at work and noticed that my face was really dry and beginning to flake. I forgot my Cetaphil in my over night bag (babysitting). I couldn't take it anymore so I walked over to my local rite-aid and bought this. There were so many products to choose from from this line that I didn't know what to choose. I got this because this is one product that I do not have at home. Glad I bought it! I applied it once I got back to my desk and I was beaming with pure joy in the fact that my face felt moisturized again. My best friend told me about these products and I haven't used anything since.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Maximum moisture retention face or body Another Cetaphil product I've bought for years. Usually if I use a harsh abrasive scrub I will put this on immediately allover my face. Now I know you make a scrub I will have to try that. This is the bomb for moisture! Sunburn, anything this will take care of the moisture!!!! Dermatologist turned me on to your products back in 1985 and I never look anywhere else! I've tried them all! Gentle cleanser, original lotion and this cream-NOTHING PURER OR BETTER! I have super sensitive, easily breakout skin, eyes constantly sting with anything on my face none of your products bother me...just amazing!
