This 2017, Cetaphil celebrates its 70th anniversary. Cetaphil is the dermatologically formulated skincare range by Galderma which is clinically proven to strengthen and protect even the most sensitive skin ensuring healthy skin.
When I became a mom, this was the skincare product that I used for my baby and now that she’s 7 years of age, this is still the same brand that I always reach out for most especially on days that my daughter has skin irritations. That’s why it’s such a delight to feature Cetaphil’s milestone on the blog.
The first product – “Cetaphil Cleansing Lotion“ – known today as Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser – still uses the same formula which was invented in 1947 by a pioneering pharmacist in Texas. Customers soon recognized its gentle cleansing power and from then on, the Cetaphil range of products started to grow.
Now, 70 years later, Cetaphil is available in more than 70 countries worldwide and offers a wide range of everyday products from, cleansers, moisturizers, sun protection to baby products and solutions for sensitive skin conditions such as acne, eczema and rosacea. Specifically formulated to provide effective skincare for a variety of skin types and conditions, Cetaphil has become one of the top skincare brands recommended by dermatologists and other healthcare professionals across the world.
The essence of Cetaphil is in the name: the ‘phil’ at the end means ‘love’, while the ‘Cet’ comes from the fatty alcohol which is used as an emollient – Cetyl alcohol. ‘Cetaphil’, therefore, is the love of softening and soothing skin.

“With its gentle and clinically proven formulas, Cetaphil reinforces and protects the structure of the skin – even in people with the most sensitive and delicate skin” explained Dr. Eszter Baltas, dermatologist who contributed to developing Cetaphil products and now Associate Professor at the Department of Dermatology and Allergology in Szeged, Hungary. “Thanks to its long heritage, based on in-depth understanding of dermatology, Cetaphil offers reliable, scientifically-tested solutions.”

“Cetaphil has been used by people with sensitive skin for more than three generations” said Neil Popplewell, Vice President Consumer Business, Nestlé Skin Health. “Over the last 70 years, we have worked closely with medical experts to better understand people’s skin needs. This has allowed us to provide different solutions adapted to these needs, and to make the Cetaphil range what it is today. Like regular exercise and a well-balanced diet, maintaining healthy skin is essential for your overall well-being, so Cetaphil completes your health routine. We will continue to develop the brand and make it more accessible to consumers worldwide. We look forward to the next 70 years of healthy skin with Cetaphil.”
To sum up what Dr. Baltas said, “When you choose Cetaphil, you’re choosing the best for your skin.”
Happy 70th Anniversary Cetaphil!
