The brand makes products for people with sensitive, dry and/or acne-prone skin as an alternative to harsher types of soap.
Cetaphil is highly used and known for its line of scent-free lotion and moisturizers. It is oil-free and can be applied to all types of skin because of its simplicity and non-harsh chemical build up, even though the use of parabens remains controversial.
