Yes, all products are paraben-free.
Alcohols can be skin irritants, but only the “drying” alcohols (the most common ones are ethyl alcohol and isopropyl or rubbing alcohol). Cetaphil ingredients don't include these irritating or drying alcohols. The alcohols in Cetaphil are much larger molecules than the typical “drying” alcohols. Thus, the ingredients we use, such as cetyl alcohol and stearyl alcohol, tend to trap water and are moisturising – not drying. These ingredients are part of the reason why Cetaphil is such a gentle cleanser.
Ingredients in our Cetaphil products are not recognized gluten sources; however, Galderma does not test for trace amounts of gluten that may be present in the ingredients or as a result of the manufacturing process. Additionally, ingredient suppliers may change. If you are a celiac disease patient, you may want to consult your healthcare provider before using Cetaphil.
Cetaphil products are designed to be gentle and effective on even the most sensitive skin. This means that whether you have generally normal skin, or have a skin condition such as acne, rosacea or eczema, Cetaphil respects your skin and can provide the cleansing, moisturising and protection that your skin needs.
We have a wide range of items available, including products made specifically for babies’ skin and hair, as well as skin care items designed with dermatologists to help take care of redness, acne and dryness-prone skin.
Cetaphil is a line of skincare products specifically designed and clinically proven to help people take care of their sensitive skin. Cetaphil believes your skin health is what leads to beautiful, glowing skin, and so we develop all of our products with your skin’s health first and foremost in mind.
The Cetaphil team is dedicated to skin health, not superficial fixes. Our work is based in science and research, and to make sure that our products truly take care of your skin, we work closely with dermatologists to develop our cleansers, moisturisers, baby products and sun care solutions. Cetaphil products are suited to even the most sensitive skin, which is why dermatologists have been recommending us for over 70 years.
Across its different products, Cetaphil uses formulas that reinforce the skin’s natural protective barrier. We also design our products to have a pH level that respects the skin’s acid-alkaline balance. We make sure to only use high quality ingredients, and in addition, many of our formulations are fragrance-free and hypoallergenic, making Cetaphil ideal for daily use even on sensitive skin.

Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser is so gentle that if you choose, you can apply it to your skin and then simply wipe it off with a cotton pad—it’s even more gentle to your skin than water!
