"Eucerin After Sun Lotion is an excellent after sun treatment that soothes sun-stressed or sunburnt skin. It was specifically formulated to relieve the sunburn and hot skin feeling of sun-stressed skin:

Hamamelis Destillate relieves the skin reddening and tightness caused by sun exposure.

Perfume- and colourant-free to minimize the risk of irritations. Light, fast absorbed texture."


Clinical Studies

The efficacy and skin compatibility of Eucerin After Sun Lotion has been clinically confirmed. It is even suitable for extremely sensitive skin.




• Avoid contact with the eyes.
• Do not use for small children.
• Avoid intensive midday sun and extensive sun exposure as even sunscreens with high SPFs do not offer a 100% protection.
• Apply generously before sun exposure & reapply frequently, especially after swimming, toweling and sweating to maintain the original protection. Insufficient quantity of sunscreen applied reduces the protection effect.
• Avoid contact with textiles and hard surfaces to prevent staining.
• Do not stay too long in the sun, even while using a sunscreen product.

Frequently asked questions

What SPF sunscreen do I need?

A Sun Protection Factor (SPF) extends the time it takes for the skin to burn by a certain factor. For example, a person who gets sunburnt after 30 minutes of sun exposure without sunscreen would not get sunburnt for 300 minutes using a sunscreen in high enough amounts with a sun protection factor of 30. However, it is best to only stay in the sun for up to 60% of this time, and remember that skin damage can occur even before sunburn is visible. Additionally we know that no sun protection product has a 100% protection.


Why does sensitive skin need special suncare?

Given its weakened protective barrier, sensitive skin is more vulnerable to irritants. It is therefore important that sun protection is specifically formulated for, and tested on, sensitive skin and that its properties answer the particular needs of the condition.

Is Eucerin After Sun Lotion suitable for children?

Eucerin After Sun Lotion is suitable for young children over 3 years old.

What is the difference between mineral and chemical UVA/UVB filters, and which one should I use?

Chemical filters absorb UV rays and transform UV rays into harmless innocuous warmth, whereas mineral filters remain on the surface of the skin and reflect and scatter UV rays that reach the surface of the skin. While chemical filters are generally considered to be safe, the use of mineral filters is advisable in case of intolerance towards chemical filters or for sun protection for babies and toddlers, whose skin is highly sensitive.

What is the difference between UVA and UVB rays?

Long wave UVA (Ultraviolet A) rays emitted by the sun penetrate deeply into the skin and are the originating factor of oxidative stress in the skin. They play a greater role in long-term sun damage and are a major cause of skin ageing and skin cancer. In addition, UVA rays may trigger polymorphic light eruption (PLE), the so-called sun allergy. Short wave UVB (Ultraviolet B) rays, on the contrary, cause immediate visible damage to the skin, leading to what we usually refer to as sunburn. It penetrates the skin less deeply than UVA but is the main responsibility for cellular DNA damage.

What product can I use for soothing skin that is already sunburnt?

As an after sun we recommend Eucerin After Sun Lotion, or, for allergy-prone skin, Eucerin Allergy Protection After Sun Creme-Gel. Having a sunburn you should avoid any further sun exposure until sun burn is healed. In severe cases of sun burn you should consult a doctor.

Eucerin Sun Superior sun protection tailored to skin condition

Eucerin Sun products offer comprehensive protection against sun-induced skin damage.

The innovative Advanced Spectral Technology combines broadband and photostable UVA and UVB filters1 for reliable UV protection with antioxidant Licochalcone A for high-energy visible (HEVIS) light defense. Glycyrrhetinic Acid provides additional DNA protection.2

The superior sun protection range includes products that are tailored to individual skin needs and contain active ingredients for specific skin conditions:

  • If your skin is oily and/or acne-prone, the formula containing sebum-regulating Oil Control Technology with lipid-absorbing pigments leaves an immediate dry touch finish and has a long-lasting anti-shine effect.
  • If your primary skin concern is premature aging, the Photoaging products with short- and long-chain Hyaluronic Acid will visible reduce the signs of skin aging.
  • If you are prone to hyperpigmentation, Eucerin Sun Fluid Pigment Control SPF 50+ protects skin from sun-induced hyperpigmentation and helps to reduce dark spots and prevent their re-appearance.
  • If your skin is prone to sun allergies, the Sun Protection and After Sun formulas with Alpha-Glucosylrutin will help to prevent sun-induced allergies such as PLE.
The range also includes Eucerin Kids Sun products (which have been specially formulated to soothe and protect your child’s sensitive and delicate skin) as well as both adult and children’s products that are suitable for atopic skin. 

Eucerin Sun products are available in a range of medium, high and very high SPFs. All are clinically and dermatologically proven to be both highly effective and well tolerated by sensitive skin.
