CeraVe Moisturizing Cream Vs. Lotion — Here’s The Lowdown
CeraVe Moisturizing Cream, and its lighter-weight counterpart, CeraVe Daily Moisturizing Lotion, are both cult classics in their own right. But what sets these two moisturizers apart? To start with the similarities, dermatologist Dr. Kiran Mian tells Bustle that both of these gentle moisturizers are oil-free and fragrance-free; made with glycerin, hyaluronic acid, and ceramides; and feature the Seal of Acceptance from the National Eczema Association (so they’re typically well-tolerated by people with skin sensitivities). Both also use Multivesicular Emulsion technology, which Dr. Mian says allows for a timed release of ceramides to be delivered to skin over the course of 24 hours, offering a “gradual delivery throughout the day” for long-lasting hydration.
