UreaRepair PLUS Body Cream 5% Urea

+ Ceramide and NMFs

Immediate relief PLUS 48h delay of dry skin symptoms

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 Body Cream 5% Urea contains Urea, Ceramide and other Natural Moisturising Factors (NMFs). It has been clinically proven to deliver both immediate relief, and intense, long-lasting moisturisation, for dry and very dry skin.

This soft and pleasant cream, which comes in a convenient 450ml jar for full body application, strengthens skin’s natural barrier, making it soft, smooth and resilient to dryness for up to 48 hours.

Suitable for those with Psoriasis, Diabetes and mature skin. Also for adjunctive care.

Frequently asked questions

Why do I need to moisturise my skin?

Skin is one of our most important protective barriers. It defends the body from external influences such as pollution, UV light 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 moisturiser for very dry and rough skin?

A moisturiser specially formulated for very dry and 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.

A moisturiser such as Eucerin’s UreaRepair PLUS Body Cream 5% Urea contains Ceramide (to repair the skin barrier and reduce moisture loss) and Urea and other NMFs (to bind water into the skin). The formula gives immediate relief and delays the symptoms of very dry skin (such as roughness and scaliness) for up to 48 hours.

How can I tell if I have very dry skin or a skin condition or disease?

You can find information about dry skin as well as conditions such as Atopic Dermatitis and Psoriasis on this website. If you are still unsure, or concerned about your symptoms, we recommend you ask a pharmacist or dermatologist for advice.

Eucerin UreaRepair PLUS Immediate relief PLUS 48h delay of dry skin symptoms

Dry skin is a very common condition and accounts for more than 40% of 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 reasons for dryness are a lack of moisture and an impaired skin barrier function which results from:

  • A lack of lipids: these are essential for a stable barrier function, which also protects from moisture loss.
  • A deficit of Urea and Natural Moisturising Factors (NMFs) which bind moisture in to the skin.

All Eucerin UreaRepair PLUS products are formulated with a unique combination of ingredients:

  • Ceramide and other lipids to form a lipid envelope to strengthen the skin barrier and protect against moisture loss.
  • Urea and other Natural Moisturising Factors (NMFs) to improve skin’s water-binding capacity and increase its moisture content.

The formula is clinically proven to replenish both lipids and moisture in the skin to give immediate relief. It also delays the symptoms of dry skin for up to 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 lotions, creams and a cleanser as well as hand and foot care treatments. These products are available with different concentrations of the water-binding active Urea, and the concentration used should vary according to the severity of dryness.
