CeraVe® Moisturizing Cream increases the skin’s ability to attract, hold and distribute moisture. It penetrates deeply into the layers of the stratum corneum (the skin barrier) to restore the balance of lipids that are essential for an effective skin barrier. CeraVe® Moisturizing Cream also forms a protective layer over the skin’s surface to help prevent moisture loss. Unique, Patented MVE® Delivery Technology Ordinary moisturizing creams need to be applied frequently because the ingredients are released in a single “burst” and absorbed in a short period of time. Like other CeraVe® Skincare products, CeraVe® Moisturizing Cream features a unique, patented MVE® delivery technology, which provides a long term moisturizing benefit to moisturize and nourish skin throughout the day while “locking in” precious moisture. The unique ingredients in CeraVe® Moisturizing Cream help replenish and maintain the natural protective function of the skin barrier, help restore moisture to damaged skin and to help keep skin healthy.
