Tribute to Nurses & Healthcare Professionals

2020 was an incredibly hard year for us all, and at CeraVe we’re so incredibly thankful for all of the hard-working NHS staff who cared for others during the COVID-19 pandemic.

That’s why we’ll be celebrating International Nurses Day on May the 12th and sharing our gratitude for the heroes behind the masks throughout the rest of the month. We’ll be highlighting how hard our nurses work and sharing stories of how they’ve touched the lives of you, our valued customers.

What you may not know is that our relationship with the nursing community is not a new one. In fact, CeraVe has been working to help support the wellbeing of nurses for the past 15 years. We believe that nurses embody our core values of compassion, trust, simplicity, and honesty, and deserve as much care as the patients they look after.

NURSING FACT: Did you know that in an average day, nurses walk nearly 5k? They’re also more likely than construction workers to sustain a back injury during their shift.

Thank You Nurses and Healthcare Professionals

In fact, our products have always been developed alongside the medical community to ensure that they can cater to the needs of some of the most hardworking hands. CeraVe’s Reparative Hand cream, for example, is developed with dermatologists to intensely moisturise dry, rough hands while protecting the protective skin barrier. This is down to its super-hydrating formula that combines 3 Essential Ceramides, Hyaluronic Acid, and Glycerine that all help to retain the skin’s natural moisture levels, making it a great hand cream for nurses.

Thank You Nurses and Healthcare Professionals


We love to hear from nurses working on the front line to find out how our formulas work in a front-line hospital environment. Here’s what Mary, a full-time nurse, had to say of our Reparative Hand Cream.

“Due to the nature of my work as a nurse, I face the challenge of endless handwashing which ultimately results in dry cracked hands. I had the chance to incorporate the use of CeraVe Reparative Hand Cream into my working environment, enabling me to vigorously test the product. Within the duration of one week, I can compel positive effects from this product. Firstly, it felt really smooth upon application and the product was non-greasy - a big bonus. Additionally, my hands were moisturised, and I found the effect was long lasting after each application and less cracked. Size wise, it’s perfect to travel with and I could fit it inside my uniform pocket - a very handy feature!” -Mary, Nurse*

Thank You Nurses and Healthcare Professionals

During the pandemic, nurses have also had the added challenge of keeping the skin on their faces and bodies comfortable and hydrated while wearing PPE for long hours each day. Our formulas are all created with these external stresses in mind, helping to restore the protective barrier with essential ceramides.

CeraVe Moisturising Cream is a rich, non-greasy formula that provides all-day hydration with MVE Technology that controls a steady release of moisture. Additionally, the CeraVe Moisturising Lotion is a lightweight lotion that helps to moisturise normal to dry skin on the face and body without clogging the pores and creating breakouts – a common issue that nurses face. This makes both formulas the ideal protective base for hardworking medical workers, and anyone wishing to protect their skin from external elements.

Thank You Nurses and Healthcare Professionals
