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.

Light Moisturizer

Love love love this moisturizer. It made me keep going back ordering this moisturizer cuz of the ingredients being one of the powerful in making my face increase moisture and elasticity.

Sarah Louise (Ealing, GB)
Perfect for my dry hyperpigmented skin

Really impressed. Have struggled to find a moisturiser that helps with my dry, patchy and sensitive skin. I’m 33 years old. Most products for my skin type contain hyalauronic acid which doesn’t work for me due to the dry environments I’m in most of the day. Incorporating the super hydrating toner and Cera Pep moisturiser have been a game changer. To get all day moisture I need I do layer a couple of other products from another brand (recommended by Dr V on her YouTube channel) too. But after years of trial and error I finally have brighter, smoother, moisturised skin. Texture is thick and creamy but doesn’t feel heavy. Hyperpigmentation from acne scars has also improved a little but I never expected quick results on this and will reassess after a full year. Reasonable prices for the quality.
Cons: The toner bottle sometimes leaks if not upright and I use three pumps rather than the recommended two. Sometimes the pump is hard work (I have a disability so struggle with finger strength sometimes).
Overall delighted with my purchase.

Favorite Moisturizer

I LOVE this moisturizer. I’ve gotten so many compliments on my skin after using Dr. V’s Daily Complete Range. Dr. V has honestly changed my life and I can never go back to using anything else now. For so long I’ve struggled to find products that work for my skin and I’ve finally found skincare line I can trust blindly! My husband who NEVER used anything on his face, also started using Micellar Gel Wash, this moisturizer, and InZincable sunscreen (I think he was jealous of all the compliments I started getting on my skin haha). Thank you thank you thank you Dr. V for thinking about people with skin of color and changing our lives!!

Sruthi (Duluth, US)

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."
