CeraVe – The Overview

“CeraVe” is a company that makes a handful of anti-wrinkle creams and serums and claims to reduce all major signs of aging. All products are marketed and sold through an official website which contains some information about the products and how they are supposed to work. While the website is reasonably professional in appearance and consumer friendly, it is very standard in what it offers. Some contact details are shown so consumers can get in touch with the customer service department and there are a few success stories but no before and after photos. The products page includes the list of ingredients contained in the formula, but no full descriptions are provided and individual amounts used are not disclosed. Instructions for usage are very brief and there are no additional features such as video tutorials etc.


CeraVe products are sold directly from the website. All purchases are made via credit card and while it is assumed that the process is secure, this cannot be confirmed. CeraVe does not offers any discounts for larger orders, even they don’t provide free samples. There is no mention of any kind of money back guarantee or refund policy offered by CeraVe.

Ingredients Contained in The Product

Retinol, Ceramides, Hyaluronic Acid, Niacinamide

CeraVe – Description

According to the website, CeraVe products are rich in antioxidants, which act as anti-aging agents in the body. The ingredients used in the formula are listed on the products page with full details regarding their individual properties. Products are to be used at least once in a day and applied in an upward, sweeping motion for full benefits.

Good about CeraVe

  • All ingredients are listed
  • All company contact details are shown
  • Manufacturer details are provided

Bad about CeraVe

  • Free samples aren’t offered
  • Scientific testing is not cited
  • Multiple bottle orders are not discounted
  • A product information video is not included on the website

CeraVe – The Bottom Line

There does not appear to be anything about CeraVe’s products that makes it stand out from other anti-wrinkle products on the market. They contains a standard blend of anti-aging ingredients but there are no clinical studies cited as proof of just how well they really works. Customer reviews for CeraVe’s products are mixed and, as with any kind of topical anti-aging products, results will vary from person to person. It would be helpful if more details were provided about the formula ingredients, such as their concentrated amounts, so consumers could have a better understanding of the products in relation to its anti-aging benefits. However, given the fact that there are no free samples available, even there is no mention of the money back guarantee. We think there are better options which would require a little bit more research but you would be getting more overall benefits.
