Eucerin DermoCapillaire pH5 Mild Shampoo

Gentle shampoo for a sensitive scalp

Designed especially for people with a sensitive scalp, this gentle shampoo cleanses and conditions your hair while preserving your scalp’s natural defences.

A gentle shampoo for a sensitive scalp

Healthy skin has a pH of 4.5 to 5.5, making it slightly acidic. This natural acidity protects your skin from harmful bacteria and other substances, so when this balance is disturbed – for example, by heat, cold, diseases, cosmetics or stress – a sensitive scalp can result. Eucerin DermoCapillaire pH5 MILD SHAMPOO is specifically designed to maintain your skin’s natural pH level, and effectively cleanses your scalp and hair to prevent dryness and irritation. It washes away dirt, pollen and allergens, and gives your hair a healthy shine and a soft, supple feeling.

Clinical and dermatological studies

Clinical and dermatological studies prove very good efficacy and tolerability on a sensitive scalp.



  • Maintains the protective acid mantle of the skin. Gently cleanses the scalp and hair.
