Urea + Ceramide and NMFs
Eucerin UreaRepair PLUS 10% Urea Lotion - 100 ml
Eucerin UreaRepair PLUS 10% Urea Lotion
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 10% Urea Lotion gives very 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 immediate relief and intense, long-lasting moisturisation, delaying dryness and roughness for up to 48 hours. Skin is intensely moisturised and looks and feels smooth and supple again.
The lotion is suitable for mature skin and those with Diabetes, Psoriasis and Keratosis Pilaris. It can also be used as adjunctive care.

Why do I need a special moisturizer for very dry, rough skin?
A moisturizer specially formulated for very 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’s UreaRepair PLUS 10% Urea Lotion contains a high concentration of Urea and other NMFs (to bind water in to the skin) and Ceramide (to repair the skin barrier and reduce moisture loss). The formula gives immediate relief and carries on working, delaying the symptoms of very dry, rough skin for up to 48 hours.
Is Eucerin UreaRepair PLUS 10% Urea Lotion safe for children?
This product is recommended for adults and has not been tested for children. For babies and children with dry skin and Atopic Dermatitis we recommend Eucerin AtopiControl. Most products in this range are suitable for babies over three months old.
