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, eczema-prone skin, damaged skin or if active skin conditions are present i.e. dermatitis, eczema.

STEP 6 of 6 (PM Routine).

Apply in the morning after Dr V Micellar Gel Wash, follow with InZincable SPF50.

Use in the evening after Dr V Antioxidant Power Serum to lock in actives. 

Warning: In general, only apply the products in this range on normal, clean skin, not if cracked/damaged. In the rare event of skin irritation or an allergic skin reaction, please discontinue use and contact your doctor if required. 

Side effects: very rare but may include temporary redness, dry skin, spots, irritation, inflammation.

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.

Great Moisturizer!

One of the best moisturizers I’ve ever used. At 57, my skin can become a little dry - especially in the Winter. Cere Pep keeps my skin hydrated.

Porawan P. (Samut Sakhon, TH)
High quality moisturiser

I am about to finish my first bottle. I live in Thailand where the weather is hot and humid, and my skin is dry. At night I apply at lot to ease the dryness of my skin and in the morning I apply lightly. Cera Prep is good for my skin and I particularly like its luxurious texture. Moreover the price is quite good provided all the goodness that Dr.V has packed into this moisturiser.

Again, my face thanks you Dr V

Kaur (Winnipeg, CA)
Best Moisturiser Ever

I had very dry skin around my nose this winter. It was dry flaky ,itchy and red. I tried couple of moisturisers which claimed to have 100 hours of moisturised skin etc. Or quick soothing effect buy nothing worked. So I gave up and ordered cerapep moisturiser. Within first week of using it dry skin around my nose disappeared and it has improved my overall skin health. I love that my skin is not feeling tight or dull anymore. I am so glad I found this skincare range. Now I can't wait to try more products. Thank you Dr V. God bless you

Seema (Easton, US)
On my 3rd bottle

Love love love, have tried other products, but came back bc of the ease of use, all in one product. I use the whole line and its great.

Khadija Elhammasi (Manchester, GB)
Love it

It is hard to come across a moisturizer that is light and fragrance free. It did help with the pores slightly. I do trust Dr v and love her products

Angelica Barajas (Kenmore, US)

I have been using the CeraPrep for over a year and have seen a huge difference in my skin. My skin always feels hydrated, fresh and soft, skin barrier has not been damaged in over a year and it really shows. Highly recommend it to anyone that wants to find the perfect face moustirizer.

Romelia Santos (Missouri City, US)
2nd time ordering

Plan to continue ordering this miracle stuff and I'm not even a person of color! This is the second time I order this and I have bought two each time! I'm not surprised this is sold out right now. This has truly helped the dry skin on my face.
I like to apply the hydrating toner then this prior to applying makeup. Love these products. Thank you Dr. V

How to use the Daily Range

"I am 5 months postpartum and the stress of delivery and sleepless nights took a toll on my skin. It started to look dull and my undereyes were very dark. I started Cera Pep brightening moisturiser for the last 5 weeks and can already see a huuuuge difference in my skin. It feels plumper, the dullness reduced and the dark circles slightly lightened. I don't look tired all the time anymore. I have recommended the entire range to my friend getting married next year."
"I am using Dr V's Complete Daily Range since July this year. I am really satisfied with the products. Before I used variety of moisturisers but nothing worked, they made my skin looked dull. Dr Vanita Rattan's products are amazing, I love them."
