Understanding CeraVe: Science and Technology Behind the Brand

CeraVe’s journey began in 2005 with the recognition that dermatological skin issues often stem from decreased levels of ceramides in the skin resulting in disrupted skin barrier and this in turn causes skin dehydration, dryness, and irritation.

Drawing upon this scientific understanding, a panel of certified dermatologists formulated CeraVe with human skin-identical ceramides (Ceramide 1, 3, and 6-II), fatty acids, and other lipids, delivered effectively through MultiVesicular Emulsion Technology (MVE). This innovative technology not only restores skin barrier function but also provides long-term moisturisation with just one use, helping to retain moisture for healthy and comfortable skin.

Bridging Accessibility Gap in Professional Skincare

Ashlee Ng, General Manager of L’Oreal Malaysia’s Dermatological Beauty Division, emphasised the importance of accessibility to dermatologist-backed products, stating, “With only one dermatologist for every 241,000 people in Malaysia, many individuals lack access to professional skincare recommendations. CeraVe, globally recognised for its efficacy in restoring the skin’s natural barrier, aims to bridge this accessibility gap for Malaysians.”

CeraVe’s Unique MVE Technology

“As compared to regular moisturisers with a single release formulation, CeraVe’s unique MVE technology delivers and releases essential ceramides throughout the day after just one application, resulting in prolonged hydration. This helps with ensuring the skin is constantly hydrated and improving skin health. We are committed to expanding access to skincare products like CeraVe in Malaysia, while also empowering individuals with knowledge, as this will greatly contribute to improved skin health for many.” Ng added.
