From the manufacturer's website:
A cleanser can remove dirt, makeup and other debris, but a hydrating cleanser, like CeraVe Hydrating Facial Cleanser, can do all that without disrupting the skin’s natural protective barrier or stripping the skin of its natural moisture. Created with dermatologists, CeraVe Hydrating Facial Cleanser is a gentle face wash with ingredients like ceramides and hyaluronic acid that work to restore the skin’s natural barrier to help the skin lock in moisture.
CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser was designed to cleanse and refresh the skin without over-stripping it or leaving it feeling tight and dry. Featuring three essential ceramides to restore the skin's barrier, hyaluronic acid to hydrate the skin, and MVE Delivery Technology to supply the skin with a steady stream of nourishment, this non-comedogenic face wash is an effective yet non-irritating way to start off any skincare regimen. Best for normal to dry skin.
