Katherine Salazar, Associate Director, Valeant Consumer Medical Products,
stated "Because of the significant time Ms. Soni has spent in and around the
pool, she is very aware of the kind of daily care and sun protection her skin
needs...and her skin goes through a lot. She can relate well to women around
the country and we are confident that she'll be a fantastic spokesperson for
CeraVe^® Sun Care."

"I'm thrilled to be working with CeraVe^® this year!" said Rebecca Soni. "I
love the original CeraVe skin care products especially because as a swimmer,
it's easy to dry out your skin. Representing the new Sun Care line will be a
natural partnership for me."

The CeraVe^® Sun Care line, developed with dermatologists, includes eight NEW
products for the face and body with various applications offering both broad
spectrum SPF 30 and SPF 50 protection, and will be sold in the sun protection
aisle in drugstores and mass market retailers nationwide starting this month.

"Ms.  Soni will appear in print advertisements throughout the year and is
involved with helping to promote CeraVe^® Sun Care through our Social Media
outreach on Facebook, Twitter (@rebsoni)  and YouTube," explained Salazar.
"We are very excited to continue our support of USA Swimming and work with one
of their top talents in 2013!"

Soni currently holds five swimming World Records. She entered the
international swim scene at the 2008 Summer Olympic Games in Beijing where she
won two silver medals and one gold. At the 2012 Summer Olympics in London,
Soni won Olympic gold in the 200-meter breaststroke in World Record time,
becoming the first woman to defend her title in the event.

Soni was named Swimming World magazine's "World Swimmer of the Year" in 2010
and 2011 and "American Swimmer of the Year" in 2009, 2010 and 2011. She
graduated in 2009 from the University of Southern California with a major in
Communication.

The CeraVe^® Sun Care Line is available at major drug and mass retailers
nationwide in April 2013.
