Cetaphil is a line of skin care products that claims to provide high quality formulas for all skin types and stages of life. The line includes products to treat acne, moisturize and soothe dry skin and protect it from the elements. For the purpose of this review, we will look specifically at Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer SPF 15 with Parsol 1789. This product claims to prevent signs of premature aging by reducing the look of fine lines and wrinkles and protecting the skin from future sun damage. The moisturizing abilities of this product make it a good choice “under makeup or after shaving”, according to the Cetaphil website.

Cetaphil products are available through major drug stores and retail chains and from a number of online retailers. While you cannot order products directly through the company website, you can sign up for an email club that will send regular discounts and updates on this brand’s products. We were unable to find customer testimonials or information about a money back guarantee on the Cetaphil website.

Product Details

The two active ingredients in the Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer are avobenzone and octocrylene. The other ingredients in the formula are Water, Diisopropyl Adipate, Cyclomethicone, Glycerin, Glyceryl Stearate, PEG-100 Stearate, Polymethyl Methacrylate, Phenoxyethanol, Benzyl Alcohol, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Tocopheryl Acetate, Carbomer 940, Disodium EDTA, Triethanolamine. Most of the ingredients listed here lead us to believe that the primary function of this product is light moisturizing, since we do not find much in the Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer that would suggest that it was formulated to provide significant anti-aging benefits.

Avobenzone is an effective sunscreen ingredient, also known as Parsol 1789. It is important to note that this substance has been proven to degrade in sunlight, so it needs photostabilizers to be effective outdoors. However, many photostabilizers are also irritating to the skin. Avobenzone is effective in blocking both types of UVA rays, and it is one of the few sunscreen ingredients that is able to do so. Octocrylene is a weaker sunscreen that does have the ability to block UVB rays, making it a good complement to avobenzone in the Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer.

The Good

  • Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer contains ample sunscreen protection.
  • Product is backed by a company with a reputation for gentle, quality skin care.

The Bad

  • There are no significant hydrating ingredients in the mix like hyaluronic acid.
  • There are no proven wrinkle reducers that we noted in the formula.
  • We were unable to find customer testimonials or a money back guarantee on any Cetaphil products.

The Bottom Line

If you are looking for daily sunscreen protection with light moisturizing properties, Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer may be a good one to try. However, if wrinkles are your primary concern, this lotion will probably not be the right product for you. There are no ingredients in this formula that will effectively keep fine lines and wrinkles at bay and provide you with a younger looking complexion.

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.

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.
