Its blend of key ingredients include glycerin and panthenol (vitamin B5) to hydrate, soothe and preserve the skin barrier, while niacinamide (vitamin B3) helps to smooth skin texture and to retain skin moisture barrier. Sweet almond oil and vitamin E help to immediately comfort dry, sensitive skin. By binding water to the skin, this extra strength moisturizer provides your skin with hydration for 48 hours, leaving it feeling soft and smooth.
After one week of use, Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream completely restores your skin’s moisture barrier. So use Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream as often as needed, but at best every day, especially directly after your morning shower or evening bath to lock in hydration.

Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream doesn’t come with an expiry date. Like many other Cetaphil products, it is formulated to be shelf-stable, which means that it can last for years provided it is not exposed to extreme temperatures. However, once opened, it’s best to use it within two years. By using it within this time, you make sure that all ingredients will be of optimal effectiveness and safety.
A single application of Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream can provide long-lasting hydration and prevent moisture loss for up to 48 hours. It significantly improves your skin’s moisture barrier within three days and restores it in just one week when regularly used. However, the duration for which Cetaphil moisturizing cream lasts depends on several factors, such as the frequency and amount you apply to your skin, your skin type, and your environmental conditions.
