Soolantra Cream is based on Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream


In the media materials released when Soolantra was announced, Galderma told us that Soolantra is based on their Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream.

Soolantra Media Release

Soolantra (ivermectin) Cream, 1% is a new, antibiotic-free, prescription topical treatment for the bumps and pimples of rosacea.

Soolantra Cream may provide visible results as early as week two.

Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream is the basis for Soolantra Cream and its fragrance-free mild, non-irritating formula avoids common rosacea irritants.

This seems to be a nice tie in with the Cetaphil range of products and shows how Galderma is pursuing their goal of owning the market for rosacea treatments.

If you have been able to tolerate Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream then you might also be able to use Soolantra.

    I asked my derm to prescribe it for me. I had to wait two weeks for insurance approval. I’ use it every few days. It does irritate my skin so I can only leave it on an hour or so. Soolantra seems to be working although I still have a spot or two…smaller.
    Proacea , sulfur works well. Ttree oil w/laventor is effective. My skin is much better using soolantra, Procea, T-tree oil w/lanvender.
    Sun or spicy foods do not bother me.

      I have just started using Soolantra every evening and have noticed an improvement in a week. I was wondering now what moisturiser to apply during the day?

  4. Joan says:

    I’ve been using Soolantra for 3 weeks now after my shower and noticed an improvement within 10 days. The blotchy angry redness has greatly reduced and the small red spots have gone. I tried Mirvaso to no effect – in fact it aggravated my condition!

    I don’t think the rosacea will ever completely go but this creme, used sparingly (it’s over $60 a tube) works for me so far.
    PS: Anne, Cetaphil moisturiser works well for me – very mild but effective and non greasy.
