Cetaphil: Dermatologist and Pediatrician Recommended Brand of Cleansers and Moisturizers

Cetaphil has been a part of our home for almost 3 years. This is the only brand that I trust for my daughter’s sensitive skin. Many can attest to the clean, clear and smooth skin of my daughter, Keisha overtime. That’s why, I feel honored when I found out that I was chosen to be a part of the Cetaphil family. Endorsing an effective product that I have tried and believed in beforehand for my daughter, is hence,  a dream come true for me. But, let me clarify that Cetaphil is not only for babies, it is a product for the whole family.

Here’s a brief background about Cetaphil:

As a compounding vehicle for dermatological remedies, Cetaphil was invented in the year 1947. Thus, it has been in the business for the past 65 years and is continuously committed to provide evidence based skin care solution for compromised, sensitive skin.

Over the years, Cetaphil has evolved and diversified its products from the “original” Cetaphil to the different products it showcases now.

Here are the different Cetaphil products available in the market:


Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser

  • ideal for sensitive skin of pediatrics (neonates, infants, children) and adult patients

To be honest, this is my first time to try the products for myself and so far it’s doing miracles to my skin. Please wait for my blog post regarding this in the weeks to come. And, also, watch out for my Cetaphil blog give-away.

Cetaphil is so generous that they sent me a box full of its products.


As of the latest Prescription Data 2Sem 2011 MAT, Cetaphil is hailed as the most prescribed brand of cleansers and moisturizers by Dermatologists and Pediatricians in the Philippines.

    I have used Cetaphil before. I remembered it giving me that baby soft skin. Yet I think because of the cost and my desire to try other products on the market. I’ve somehow have forgotten my love for it. Now I wanna go back. Hopefully this will be my chance to try their products again. 🙂 Thanks!
