CeraVe is a product line created by Coria Laboratories, LTD. The CeraVe line of skincare products claims to maintain and restore your “skin barrier.” CeraVe uses a patented “multivesicular emulsion” or MVE delivery technology that was only available through a prescription not long ago. The official website gives you a lot of information on the MVE system the product use, as well as what some other ingredients do.

The CeraVe product line was created in conjunction with dermatologists and was intended for use in the treatment of dry skin and other conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. You can order CeraVe products from local retail and drug stores such as CVS and Walgreens, but products they are not available directly from the website.

CeraVe only offers three products on their official website and these are a hydrating cleanser, moisturizing lotion, and a moisturizing cream. That’s not a very large selection and there are many similar products on the market so let’s take a closer look.

Product Details

The CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser claims to be very mild and doesn’t clog pores. This product also features the MVE technology, which claims to release beneficial ingredients over a long period of time after the cleanser is applied.

The CeraVe Moisturizing Cream and Lotion are very similar to each other but have are manufactured in a different product form. Both of these forms make use if CeraVe’s proprietary MVE technology as well, but the cream is thicker than the lotion and is best used on very dry skin areas such as elbows, knees, and feet.

The official website doesn’t include any prices or ingredients at all but a quick search turned them up. All three products contain the follwing: Purified Water, Glycerin, Behentrimonium Methosulfate, Cetearyl Alcohol, Ceramide 3, Ceramide 6 II, Ceramide 1, Hyaluronic Acid, Cholesterol, Polyoxyl 40 Stearate, Glyceryl Monostearate, Stearyl Alcohol, Polysorbate 20, Potassium Phosphate, Dipotassium Phosphate, Sodium Lauroyl Lactylate, Cetyl Alcohol, Disodium EDTA, Phytosphingosine, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Carbomer, Xanthan Gum.

The Good

  • The products contain hyuralonic acid, which has proven benefits for the skin.
  • The official CeraVe website is very informative about its products and what they do.
  • These products are very affordable; around $13 for a 12 oz. bottle of the cleanser from a third-party web vendor.2


The Bad

  • No prices or ingredients are listed on the official website.
  • No money-back guarantee seems to be offered.
  • You can’t buy anything from the official website.
  • Products don’t contain a combination of known proprietary wrinkle reducers.

The Bottom Line

CeraVe products have been recommended by dermatologists due to their mild nature, but there isn’t much in the products for fighting wrinkles and fine lines. These products seem better suited for treating dry skin or certain types of skin blemishes. The MVE system is interesting and hopefully in the future they will use it in combination with known anti-aging compounds, instead of just ingredients that are known for general skin nourishment. CeraVe seems more suited for those with skin problems or very dry skin and not someone looking for an effective anti-aging compound.

Rejuval Skin Bottle

Top Anti-Aging Cream for 2015: Rejuval Skin

Editor's Review: 4.9 / 5.0

After looking at literally hundreds of wrinkle reduction and prevention treatments, Rejuval Skin is our top choice. This product offers customers a Risk-Free Trial, and makes sure to both repair and protect the skin without using harmful chemicals like paragons or fragrances. No other formula that we've seen takes such a holistic approach to skin care. Rejuval Skin contains the advanced scientifically proven ingredient Acetyl Hexapeptide-3, proven to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. When you factor in the trial offer, the potent formula, and the scientific studies posted on the official site, it's easy to see why Rejuval Skin is our top anti-aging pick. >> Read more about Rejuval Skin Go

Editor's Review: 4.6 / 5.0

We've reviewed thousands of anti-aging eye treatments, and we've never seen anything quite like this! Vivexin is an anti-aging, eye treatment formulated to lighten dark circles, lessen the appearance of bags under the eyes and minimize fine lines and crow's feet associated with premature skin aging. The three active ingredients in Vivexin - Haloxyl, Eyeliss and Matrixyl - are backed with clinical research and positive consumer testimonials. If that's not enough to convince consumers to try Vivexin, the company offers a 90-day money-back guarantee so consumers can see the changes in eye appearance with the option of returning the product if they are not convinced >> Read more about Vivexin Go
