The Galderma-owned brand is reformulating its most iconic, best-selling products with cleaner formulas to meet consumer demands while maintaining the same trusted efficacy and sensorial experience CETAPHIL is known for. Specifically, the Gentle Skin Cleanser, Oily Skin Cleanser, Moisturising Cream, Moisturising Lotion and the Daily Advance Ultra Hydrating lotion, are now made with science-backed blend of ingredients – niacinamide (Vitamin B3), panthenol (Vitamin B5) and hydrating Glycerin. The upgraded formulas are also free of parabens, sulfates and animal origin ingredients, and are not tested on animals at any stage of product innovation, development, or manufacturing processes.

As CETAPHIL is at the forefront in treating sensitive skin, it is also the brand’s mission to continuously contribute to short-term and long-term environmental change.

Through Clear Skies, the brand is also doubling efforts to embed responsible practices across the business. The initiative will guide CETAPHIL’s journey towards promoting a world with a healthier environment and brighter future by using smarter packaging and reducing environmental impact. Galderma and CETAPHIL aim to achieve 100% renewable energy in their current factories by 2022 and become carbon neutral in their production facilities.

Clear Skies is a science-based approach aligned with the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Besides formulating with cleaner ingredients, the approach is set against two other key pillars:

  • Using smarter packaging: Products used are mostly mono-material containers and closures that are in part recyclable so that containers and packaging can be recycled at most facilities. Paper-based packaging are made with renewable and biodegradable materials.
  • Reducing environmental impact: Since 2020, Galderma and CETAPHIL have reduced water consumption by 33% per ton per product. The company has also reduced annual CO2 emissions from factories by over 60%, by using more efficient technology and renewable resources of electricity. Currently, 95% of the electricity that powers its factories come from renewable resources and none of the waste from factories ends up in a landfill.

CETAPHIL has been protecting and caring for sensitive skin for more than 75 years. As Clear Skies initiatives continue to evolve, the brand will continue to double down efforts in driving the change for consumers, and the environment.
