Exfoliation is key for healthy, smooth skin. We recommend a salicylic acid cleanser as a gentle way to exfoliate. In addition to effectively cleanse the skin to remove oil, dirt and makeup, this multi-tasking product also helps sweep away dead cells, improves dryness and softens rough skin.

CeraVe SA Cleanser provides gentle, non-irritating exfoliation without harsh microbeads or grains that can scratch or injure the skin. Suitable for the face and body as well as acne-prone and psoriasis-prone skin. This salicylic acid cleanser contains three essential ceramides, hyaluronic acid and niacinamide, to help restore the skin barrier, retain hydration and help sooth the skin. This formula is also non-comedogenic, fragrance-free and enriched with vitamin D for extra antioxidant protection.

This formula is:

  • Suitable for rough and bumpy skin
  • Enriched with vitamin D for antioxidant protection
  • Non-comedogenic, non-irritating and fragrance-free
  • Developed with dermatologists

This formula contains:

  • Ceramides: Essential for healthy skin, ceramides help restore and maintain the skin’s natural barrier

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yes cerave!! You got this one right :) I just wanna start by saying that I'm so impressed with this cleanser!! I have dry, acne prone skin, large pores, oily in the t zone. The first time I used this I had absolutely no irritation what so ever. And my skins pretty darn sensitive! This is the most gentle salicylic acid cleanser I've ever used and it doesn't dry my skin out!! I use this as my night time face along with the cerave daily moisturizing lotion and they work so well together!! I wake up the next morning and my skin is clearer and babysoft! Highly recommend! If you have my skin type, give it a shot! Totally worth it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Leaves my skin soft and smooth, freshly clean. At first I was only using CeraVe AM facial moisturizing lotion. Then I came across these great reviews for this Renewing SA Cleanser and the Resurfacing Retinol Serum. So I adding these two products to my facial routine. I use this cleanser first, pat dry my face let it air dry a bit add the serum to my face, let dry a bit and apply the facial moisturizer. Major improvement to my skin, I notice my post acne scar shrinking and my discolored skin caused by Lupus even out some. Been using all three of these for about two months now and love how great they have been helping with my skin. Great products CeraVe will continue to use these. Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Controls my breakouts! I've used the CeraVe moisturizing cleanser for years and was ready to try something a little different but still within the CeraVe brand since I love it so much. I've been using this cleanser for almost two months and have noticed that my blackheads are clearing up, and while I still breakout, the frequency is significantly less, so obviously I'm happy with that. If I wash my face quickly my skin still feels normal after I dry my face, but if I leave it on for an extra minute or so in the shower, I notice that it dries my skin a little bit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cleared up my daughter's acne in 3 days! My 10 year old daughter started playing goalie for lacrosse and suddenly developed acne, most likely from wearing a sweaty helmet. We've tried almost every cleanser and spot treatment with benzoyl peroxide, but with little success. We finally decided to try a product with salicylic acid and seriously, after 3-4 days of washing her face nightly with CeraVe Renewing SA Cleanser, her face is completely clear. She washes her face at night with the SA Cleanser, and applies a benzoyl peroxide spot treatment in the morning. Her skin looks beautiful!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cleared my acne! I love this product! I use it in conjunction with the SA lotion on my face every morning/night. My acne has completely cleared up, my skin is glowing and my face feels super supple and moisturized! The small, colorless bumps I had all over my forehead have cleared. I love all CeraVe products, but the SA line is my favorite! I also use the SA cream all over my body after showering and my skin is smoother than it's ever been. I highly recommend this product! I will never stray from this line. For reference, I have combination acne-prone skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this facial wash! I bought this to use on my face as I have congested rough skin. I have used for a month and this stuff is great. I have not had any breakouts and my skin has better balance. My skin is normally combo to oily. Pores are clearing out and becoming less noticeable. The skin on my chin was so rough and congested and now you would never know. My skin is so much smoother. I am 53yrs old and I can't believe my skin looks so good. Non irritating and my skin never feels dry. I love this facial wash! Thanks Cerave.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW I’m not the type of person to leave reviews, but I had to for this product. I experienced a really bad break out, practically all over my face, a few months ago. I never had that happen before so I didn’t know where to start. This cleanser was recommended to me because I have dry, sensitive skin. I have been through two bottles and haven’t had any breakouts since I started using it. Cerave saved my face!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have used there product for more than 2 years. My dermatologist recommended it to me I’m in my 50’s and my skin was changing I have always been told how beautiful my skin is. Probably since I never wore makeup or used other such products. I noticed that the older I got the glow from my skin was fading and I had a few age spots developing so that was why I went to the dermatologist, they recommended several Cerave products my doctor said his wife uses their products and so I ran out and bought some that day and my skin is back to its original glow and the age spots are all but gone. I recommend there products to all my family and friends. So far no one has had anything but glowing remarks after they tried them. Sometimes it just a matter of finding which product is best for your skin type.
