The CeraVe SA Cleanser formula contains salicylic acid to exfoliate without compromising the skin’s natural barrier, as well as hyaluronic acid to hydrate and retain moisture and 3 essential ceramides to moisturise and protect the skin's barrier. This unique combination of ingredients makes CeraVe SA Smoothing Cleanser an effective way to remove oil, dirt and makeup as well as smooth and improve skin texture.

Dead skin cells can build up on the skin surface and create dry patches. Salicylic acid is a BHA which helps in exfoliation of this dead skin and also helps to diminish dry patches and improve skin texture. This BHA cleanser can penetrate deeper into pores than AHAs to enable a deep cleanse and remove built up residue.

Skin Type

CeraVe salicylic acid cleanser is suitable for very dry, rough and or bumpy skin. Also suitable for skin prone to Keratosis Pilaris.

Active Ingredients

Salicylic Acid

Salicylic acid has keratolytic and comedolytic properties and works by loosening and breaking apart keratin cells in in the outer layers of the skin to enable skin to visibly renew. The CeraVe salicylic acid BHA cleanser breaks down the keratin bumps that have built up around hair follicles on the skin.


Ceramides are lipids (fats) found naturally in the outer layer of the skin. This gentle salicylic acid cleanser contains ceramides 1, 3, 6-11 to help replenish lipids, prevent further moisture loss and also help to create a strong, healthy, skin barrier. People with dry skin can have lower levels of ceramides in the skin

Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic Acid is a humectant and serves to draw in and retain water to keep the connective tissue moist. This BHA cleanser with hyaluronic acid hydrates dry, bumpy, rough skin and helps to create a strong, healthy, skin barrier.
