What is MVE technology?
CeraVe’s patented MVE technology (which stands for MultiVesicular Emulsion technology) is a unique delivery system for the ingredients in skincare products.
It continuously releases the ceramide enriched formula throughout the day, offering protection and hydration that can last for up to 24-hours.
This differs from conventional delivery systems which can release ingredients much more quickly and can be less effective over a longer period of time.
Can I use CeraVe if I have acne-prone skin?
All CeraVe products are non-comedogenic, which means they won’t clog your pores or cause acne.
They’re also free from fragrances and use non-irritating formulas which make them ideal for sensitive skin.
What are ceramides?
Ceramides are oils (also known as lipids) that appear naturally in your skin.
They’re used to support your skin barrier and help lock in moisture. If you think of your skin barrier as a brick wall-like structure, lipids like ceramides are the mortar that holds the bricks together.
When you’re young, your body creates lots of ceramides naturally, but as we grow older our ceramides deplete.
Fewer ceramides mean that your skin can be more prone to moisture loss, dryness, cracking, and irritation.
This is why CeraVe products are enriched with ceramides 1, 3 and 6-II to help restore your skin’s natural barrier.
