Eucerin pH5 Cream

Reduces skin sensitivity

A gentle yet effective face and body cream that makes skin more resilient and less sensitive.

Face and body cream for dry, sensitive skin

Dry, sensitive skin is easily irritated by environmental triggers, making it even more sensitive. It requires more than a gentle moisturizer to become less sensitive. 

Eucerin pH5 Cream has been specially formulated for dry and sensitive skin on the face and for patches of dry and sensitive skin on the body. The unique Eucerin pH Balance System contains pH5 Citrate Buffer to restore and support skin’s optimal pH. The formula also includes Dexpanthenol, an active ingredient known for its regenerative properties.

The formula gives skin the daily hydration it needs and leaves it looking and feeling soft and smooth. Suitable for children of three years and older.

Clinical and dermatological studies

Clinical and dermatological studies prove very good efficacy and skin tolerability for dry sensitive skin.


In addition to other clinical and dermatological studies, a Product-in-Use (PiU study)1  was conducted with 120 women with sensitive skin aged between 35 and 65. They reported the following results after two weeks of use:

  • 100% said the product made their skin feel velvety-soft
  • 98% reported that the product reduces skin sensitivity
  • 97% confirmed that the product provides their skin with long-lasting moisturization
  • 97% confirmed that the product strengthens their skin’s resilience
  • 92% confirmed that the product absorbs quickly

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I be sure that your products are safe for my sensitive skin?

All Eucerin pH5 products have been specially formulated to combine excellent skin protection and regeneration with clinically-proven skin tolerability. Eucerin pH5 Cream is suitable for frequent use on skin that is prone to type 1 allergies such as Hay Fever.

Before applying a new product all over your body, test it first by applying it repeatedly to the skin on the inside of your elbow. If there’s no reaction (e.g. redness, swelling or itching) then it’s safe to assume the product is compatible with your skin. If you have any concerns we recommend that you ask a pharmacist or dermatologist for their advice.

Why does skin need protection?

Our skin works hard to protect our bodies. It defends the body from external influences such as changes in climate, pollution, UV light, and chemicals. But these environmental forces can have an impact on skin and cause it to become stressed. When skin is stressed, it is less able to work as an efficient barrier. It loses moisture and becomes permeable from the outside. It’s important that we protect our skin and support the optimal pH balance for its natural barrier function. Skin is then able to carry on its important work of protecting us.

What are the active ingredients in the Eucerin pH5 range?

Eucerin pH5 cleansers and moisturizers contain very mild ingredients that have been clinically and dermatologically tested and proven to restore skin’s optimal pH and protect its natural defenses, making it more resilient and less sensitive to environmental triggers.

These include pH5 Citrate Buffer, to restore and support skin’s optimal pH, and Dexpanthenol, an active ingredient known for its regenerative properties. Dexpanthenol increases skin’s resilience to irritation, has wound healing properties, and leaves skin looking and feeling soft and smooth.

All products in the Eucerin pH5 range have excellent skin compatibility with dry, sensitive skin.



  • Use as a daily face cream or apply daily to patches of dry sensitive skin on your body.
  • For best results, use in combination with the appropriate Eucerin face or body cleanser.
