I won’t be surprised if you said you have as Cetaphil has been around for 70 years.
But do you know what Cetaphil means? Here is a little trivia. Did you know that the essence of Cetaphil is in the name: the ‘phil’ at the end means ‘love’, while the ‘Cet’ comes from the fatty alcohol which is used as an emollient – Cetyl alcohol. ‘Cetaphil’, therefore, is the love of softening and soothing skin.
Bet you didn’t know that ’til now right?
In 1947 a pioneering pharmacist in Texas, came with the first product- “Cetaphil Cleansing Lotion“. This was the well-lkved product that got a cult following because of its gentle cleansing power even claimed to be better than water.
