Sensitive Skin affects over half the population; studies say

Approximately 70% of people worldwide identify as having sensitive skin, and sensitive skin continues to be a rising complaint that Dermatologists are registering from their patients.

Environmental factors, lifestyles, and genetics all play a part in developing sensitive skin, but patients generally present weakened skin barriers, dryness, roughness, irritations, and tightness. The commonness of sensitive skin has prompted research into the skin condition, resulting in breakthroughs in skincare.

“As a leader in sensitive skin for over 75 years, we are even more committed to delivering cutting-edge products to advance dermatological care for every skin story,” says Jade Silva-nettoPonoc, Galderma Philippines Business Unit Head.


In the Philippines, Cetaphil is bringing to the country for the first time Skin Awareness Month—the culmination of Cetaphil’s research into the science of gentle skincare, offering a chance to discover the breakthroughs and acquire specifically formulated productsto care for all types of sensitive skin.
