Product Info

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.

How to use

Try a different product if …

Your skin is extremely intolerant:

Try fragrance-free Eucerin DermoCapillaire Hypertolerant Shampoo instead.

You have extremely sensitive skin or Psoriasis:

You may find Eucerin DermoCapillaire Calming Urea Shampoo more suitable, as it has an even milder, soothing formula.

You have visible flakes on your scalp or hair:

This may mean you have dandruff rather than a sensitive scalp. If so, try Eucerin DermoCapillaire Anti-Dandruff Gel Shampoo or Eucerin DermoCapillaire Anti-Dandruff Creme Shampoo. If the scaling is very light and your scalp is itchy you may have a dry and itchy scalp. If so, try Eucerin DermoCapillaire Calming Urea Shampoo.
