Dr Vanita Rattan CeraPep Moisturiser 100ml is an anti-aging, anti-pigmentation, non-comedogenic moisturiser, safe for skin of colour.
Contains DermStim TM an anti-pigmentation, anti-aging stem cell technology for skin of colour.
It is NAFE SAFE to minimise chances of irritation No Denatured Alcohol, No Fragrance and No Essential Oils.
Suitable for use around the eye area, ensuring the product does not enter the eye. Wash out immediately if it does.
Skin of colour requires more ceramides, and more tyrosinase inhibitors for hyperpigmentation than lighter skin tones. Cera Pep Moisturiser contains both.
Niacinamide has been used to strengthen the skin barrier and Peptides help stimulate collagen.
It is 'NAFE SAFE' to minimise chances of irritation i.e. No Denatured Alcohol, No Fragrance and No Essential Oils.
Irritation can be more problematic for darker skin tones, and therefore it should be avoided where possible.
For most skin types (normal/dry/combination) & persons over 16 years and over.
Persons with oily skin can also use the range but will be more suited to use the Dr V. Trio Blemish range for oily/acne prone skin instead.
Not for persons with a history of reactions to skincare products, very dry/sensitive skin, damaged skin or if active skin conditions are present i.e. seborrhoeic dermatitis, severe eczema.

1. How long would Daily Range products last for?
This will vary for each product and person, however, if usage guidelines are followed, the average duration may be 4-6 weeks approx.
2. Is the Daily Range suitable for pregnancy & breastfeeding?
The range is suitable for pregnancy with the exception of the 'Antioxidant Serum'. If unsure or your circumstances vary, please check with your doctor.
3. Is the Daily Range suitable for all skin types?
Yes it is suitable for all skin types, however persons with very sensitive skin / rosacea / active skin conditions etc. should AVOID the 'Exfoliate to Glow' chemical exfoliator.
4. Can you use the Daily Range with Dr. V Hyperpigmentation kits / other professional treatments?
The cleansers, moisturiser and toner can be used, but NOT the 'Exfoliate to Glow' or 'Antioxidant Serum' please. In general, exfoliating washes/scrubs should not be used with anti-pigmentation treatments.
5. Should I still use Niacinamide, Ceramides, Retinol, Vitamin A/C/E serums from other skincare lines in conjunction with the Dr V Daily Range?
You don't need to use any of the active ingredients above from other products as they are already well represented in the Daily Range. Doing so would be a waste of money and could lead to skin reactions.
However, you can add an extra Retinol product into your skincare routine if you wish to (but not essential).
6. Do I still need to use Dr V YouTube Channel recommended products such as Garnier Micellar Water, Simple Moisturising Face Wash, DHC Cleansing Oil?
No, these products have effective counterparts in the Dr V Daily Range. For instance the Dr V Micellar Gel Wash effectively replaces both Micellar Water and a normal Face Wash.
7. Can I still use Tretinoin with the Dr V Antioxidant Power Serum?
It is acceptable to use Tretinoin with the Antioxidant Serum, but not with the Dr V Exfoliate to Glow, nor with our Facial Pigmentation Kit.
However, it is not permissable to use Isotretinoin/Roaccutane with the Serum
8. I have never used Vitamin A before, do I need to do anything special to start off with?
The Antioxidant Power Serum contains the least irritating form of Vitamin A and at a low %, hence it can be used as normal per the application guidelines.
However, as with all treatment products, we advise patch testing first, to ensure there are no skin reactions before proceeding with application to the more prominent areas.
9. Why is there Citric acid in the Power Serum, I thought Dr V does not like it ?
Citric acid is used in low % as pH buffer, not at high % as an exfoliator (not recommended).
10. Can these products be used after microneedling procedures?
Yes, after any soreness from the microneedling has subsided, all Daily Range products can be used except for the 'Exfoliate to Glow' product.
11. As there is Lactic acid in this product, do I still need to exfoliate separately?
You can still exfoliate separately as the lactic acid in this product is a pH adjuster, not used as an exfoliator.
12. Will this product block my pores?
The product is non-comedogenic, meaning that it will not block pores on its own in most individuals. However, in acne-prone individuals, it is better to opt for a lighter gel-based moisturiser, such as in Dr V Trio Blemish (expected April/May 2022).
13. How long does it take to see results, as part of the full daily range?
You may start to notice beneficial effects in as little as 2-4 weeks, however we advise 12 weeks to see the full potential.

I have been using this product for many months and I must say it will continue to be a staple in my skincare routine. The product is not greasy or oily, it goes on so smooth and moisturize very well and last throughout the day. My skin is very nourished with any dry patches. I love the product!
This is my second buy and I stocked up for a few months!! Love it so much, no breakouts, no irritation and so lovely over the winter months! Thank you so so much for creating products us SOC family!
Cera Pep Moisturiser is the only moisturiser that fits perfectly into my skincare regimen. It’s rich and fatty, and a little goes a long way. Love it so much, I got two more! Thank you Dr. V
I love this moisturiser! Plumps up my skin immediately and feel so good on my skin.
Skincare By Dr. V Cera Pep Moisturizer is my Holy Grail moisturizer. It's my second bottle and when i use this product my skin feels so soft and hydrate. I know this is one of the best Moisturizer in the world. Great job Dr. V you are the Skincare Goddess. Thank you
I have been purchasing this moisturizer for a year now & I will never buy anything else but this one. My skin always looks smooth and healthy, I LOVE IT!
love it and will be buying it again
The texture is woderful, it keeps the skin feeling moisturised all day, not sticky to the touch but quite velvety. i don't think i ever tried a cream with such thick texture that didn't leave my skin greasy. my forhead gets oily pretty fast but it happens always anyways. it's really lovely. the only thing that might stop me from repurchasing is paying for customs (i'm from eu). hoping one day it will changed :)
My skin is better than ever. Thank you so much Dr. V
