Cetaphil was created by a pharmacist, in 1947. In its early years it was only available at select pharmacists but quickly became a highly recommended product by dermatologists and pediatricians for common skin conditions. Due to increased consumer demand, more drugstores began selling the cleanser. By the 1980s it was available at all major retail stores across North America. Today, one bottle of Cetaphil Skin Cleanser is sold every minute. Its formula remains unchanged, and it has cemented its reputation as the gentlest cleanser available for sensitive skin. Cetaphil now has a range of products to suit every skincare need. Tested under the most stringent clinical conditions, it is backed by science and recommended by dermatologists. When you choose Cetaphil, you’re choosing the best for your skin.
