How it works
The main active ingredient is Urea: the ‘gold standard’ for dry skin treatment. Urea is a humectant (meaning it attracts water to the skin). It also increases the water-binding capacity of the skin and helps to maintain its barrier function. This improves elasticity and protects against moisture loss (known as transepidermal water loss or TEWL).
The Eucerin UreaRepair PLUS complex combines Urea with Ceramides, Gluco-Glycerol and other NMF that support Urea’s efficacy. Skin-identical Ceramides forms a protective lipid envelope to protect the outer layers of skin and enhance barrier function, while Gluco-Glycerol improves the distribution of water in deeper epidermal layers thereby hydrating skin from the inside out. This combination of moisturizing and lipid-replenishing ingredients provides excellent support for dry skin.
Why do I need a special dry skin lotion 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 even crack.
Eucerin’s UreaRepair PLUS 5% Urea Lotion with soothing scent contains Urea and other NMF (to bind water into the skin) and Ceramides (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.
How can I tell if I have dry skin or a skin disease/condition?
You can find information about dry skin or Xerosis, as well as conditions such as Eczema (Atopic Dermatitis), Keratosis Pilaris (or chicken skin) and Psoriasis on this website. You can also take our skin test to find out more about your skin type and condition and how best to care for it. If you are still unsure, or concerned about your symptoms, we recommend you ask a pharmacist or dermatologist for advice.
What are the most effective ingredients for treating dry skin?
One of the best-known, tried and tested and most effective active ingredients for treating dry skin is Urea. It is considered the ‘gold standard’, based on its long history of efficacy and excellent research. You can find out more about it in Urea for the treatment of dry skin. Other actives that complement Urea and support its efficacy include Natural Moisturising Factors (NMF) such as Ceramides and Gluco-Glycerol.
Is it OK to use fragranced products on dry, sensitive skin?
Some perfumes can irritate sensitive skin. For this reason, people with dry, sensitive skin often choose fragrance-free formulations, thinking that they have to compromise on fragrance in favor of a product that effectively treats dryness.
The lightly scented products in the Eucerin UreaRepair PLUS range – Eucerin UreaRepair PLUS Urea Shower Foam and Eucerin UreaRepair PLUS 5% Urea Lotion with a soothing scent – combine proven effectiveness with a delicate, soothing and skin-friendly scent that is free-from perfumes known to cause allergies and is proven to be well tolerated by dry, sensitive skin. So now you can enjoy the best of both worlds without compromise.
If you prefer a fragrance-free moisturizer for your dry skin, we recommend Eucerin UreaRepair PLUS 5% Urea Lotion.
