The Old vs New Formulation of Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser

on December 10, 2022

Cetaphil, the number one doctors-recommended sensitive skin brand, reformulated some of its best-selling products for the first time in 74 years. The products include the Gentle Skin Cleanser, the first and the flagship product, along with Daily Facial Cleanser, Moisturizing Lotion and Advanced Relief Lotion. The Cetaphil Gentle Cleanser is considered one of the best face wash for sensitive & dry skin types, and it is often recommended by many dermatologists across the globe.

Why did Cetaphil change its formula?

The company, in order to better align with its commitment towards sensitive skincare and the environment, reformulated some of its products featuring cleaner and clinically proven science-backed ingredients to improve sensitive skin’s resilience. The all-new Cetaphil gentle cleanser is now free of parabens, sulfates, mineral oil and animal-origin ingredients and is not tested on animals at any stage of product innovation, development, or manufacturing processes. This revamp also includes redesigned sustainable packaging.

How does the new formulation differ from the old? 

The old formula wasn’t vegan, paraben-free, sulfate-free, or cruelty-free and had the following ingredients - Water, Cetyl Alcohol, Propylene Glycol, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Stearyl Alcohol, Methylparaben, Propylparaben and Butylparaben.

The new formula is clean, vegan, cruelty-free and contains Water, Glycerin, Cetearyl Alcohol, Panthenol, Niacinamide, Pantolactone, Xanthan Gum, Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, Sodium Benzoate and Citric Acid. The specially formulated blend of Niacinamide, Panthenol and Hydrating Glycerin makes all the difference to the new face wash, along with the clean formulation. 

Despite the earlier formulation being a little more milder, the new Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser still continues to be a top rated face wash, being the mildest among currently available face washes.
