Our body wash products include gentle yet effective cleansers that are formulated with ceramides to strengthen & maintain the skin’s barrier, which helps lock in moisture. With an array of options designed for babies, adults and specific skin concerns, the proper body cleanser is an important first skincare step that provides hydrating benefits in the bath or shower.


  • Body cleansers are often formulated with a combination of ingredients to help manage common skin concerns, while simultaneously removing dirt, oil or other impurities from the skin. Individual cleansing needs vary depending on both your skin type and formula preference, so understanding the differences play an important role in providing skin with optimal care.

    Body washes can exert hydrating or exfoliating properties, as well as foam or cream formulas once emulsified. Learn more about the range of CeraVe body cleansers to find the best body wash for your skin.
