Dry skin is a very common condition and often results in visits to dermatologists. Depending on the severity of dryness, skin can be tight and rough and/or prone to itching, scaling, flakiness and redness. In extreme cases, skin is pathologically dry (Xerosis).
The main reason for skin dryness is an impaired skin barrier function which results from:
- A lack of lipids that help to protect skin from moisture loss.
- A deficit of Urea and Natural Moisturizing Factors (NMFs) which bind moisture into the skin.
All Eucerin UreaRepair PLUS products are formulated with a unique combination of ingredients:
- Urea and other Natural Moisturizing Factors (NMFs) to improve skin’s water-binding capacity and increase its moisture content.
- Ceramides and other lipids to strengthen the skin barrier and protect against moisture loss.
The formula is clinically proven to replenish both lipids and moisture in the skin to give immediate relief. It delays the symptoms of dry skin for up 48 hours. Eucerin UreaRepair PLUS leaves skin looking and feeling smooth, soft and supple.
Eucerin UreaRepair PLUS offers a comprehensive range of products which includes a cleanser, body lotions and creams (including hand and foot care products) and an intensive treatment cream for problem areas of extremely dry skin. These products are available with different concentrations of water-binding active Urea, and the concentration used should vary according to the severity of dryness.
