Eucerin UreaRepair PLUS 5% Urea Body Cream
Dry skin cream for body
When the skin on our bodies has a stable barrier function, it protects us from external irritants and is able to maintain its optimal level of hydration. But when that barrier is impaired, skin can lose moisture and look and feel dry as a result.
Eucerin UreaRepair PLUS 5% Urea Body Cream gives dry, rough body skin the daily care it needs. It contains a unique combination of ingredients – Urea, Ceramide and other Natural Moisturizing Factors (NMFs) – which bind moisture in and repair skin´s natural protective barrier to prevent further moisture loss. The formula has been clinically and dermatologically proven to deliver both immediate relief and intense, long-lasting moisturization, delaying dryness and roughness for up to 48 hours. Skin is intensely moisturized and looks and feels soft and smooth.
This soft and pleasant dry skin cream, which comes in a generous 450ml jar for full body application, is suitable for those with mature skin and/or skin conditions such as Xerosis, Psoriasis and Diabetes. It can also be used for adjunctive care.

How it works
The Ceramide in the formula repairs the skin barrier and reduces moisture loss. The Urea and other NMFs bind in water, giving immediate relief to dryness and roughness and delivering intense, 48-hour moisturization.
- Deficiency of skin barrier lipids
- Deficiency of moisture binding substances such as Urea and other NMFs
- The Ceramide in the formula repairs the skin barrier and reduces moisture loss
- Urea and other NMFs bind in water and relieve symptoms of dryness and roughness
Why do I need to moisturize my skin?
Skin is one of our most important protective barriers. It defends the body from external influences such as pollution, sunlight and chemicals. These factors can also cause damage to the skin barrier and, when this happens, skin’s capacity to retain moisture is compromised. As a result, it becomes prone to dryness and irritation. It’s important that we care for our skin so that it, in turn, can carry on its vital work of protecting us.
Why do I need a special moisturizer for dry, rough skin?
A moisturizer specially formulated for dry, rough skin should be rich in the ingredients that skin needs to prevent moisture loss, bind in more water and strengthen its protective barrier. Left untreated, or treated with a product that doesn’t contain the appropriate ingredients, skin might dry out further and may crack.
Eucerin UreaRepair PLUS 5% Urea Body Cream contains Urea and other NMFs (to bind water into the skin) and Ceramide (to repair the skin barrier and reduce moisture loss).). The formula gives immediate relief and delays the symptoms of very dry skin (such as roughness and scaliness) for up to 48 hours.
