Eucerin pH5 Handwash Oil

Preserves skin resilience

An extra mild wash which protects skin’s natural defenses and prevents it from drying out.

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

Eucerin pH5 Handwash Oil has been specially formulated with extra-mild surfactants that cleanse dry, sensitive hands without drying them out, even with frequent hand washing. The unique Eucerin pH Balance System contains pH5 Citrate Buffer to restore and support skin’s optimal pH. The hand wash also includes Dexpanthenol, an active ingredient known for its regenerative properties.


Rich in natural caring oils, Eucerin pH5 Handwash Oil offers intense replenishment, smoothing and soothing even the most stressed hands. It helps prevent the recurrence of rough, cracked skin.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are surfactants, and which ones does Eucerin use?

Surfactants are active cleansing agents, sometimes also called active surface or active interface substances. They are organic compounds that influence molecular adhesion and reduce surface tension. When used in skin cleansers, they make it easier to remove dirt particles from skin’s surface. 

Comprehensive clinical and dermatological studies prove that the extra-mild surfactants used in Eucerin cleansing products – which include Sodium Myreth Sulfate and Lauryl Glucoside – have excellent skin compatibility.

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, that restores and supports 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.

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

All Eucerin pH5 cleansing products have been specially formulated to combine gentle cleansing with excellent skin protection and clinically-proven skin tolerability. Eucerin pH5 Handwash Oil is suitable for frequent by those with Atopic Dermatitis.

Before applying a new product all over your hands, 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.
