Frequently asked questions

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 even crack.

Eucerin’s UreaRepair PLUS Lotion 5% Urea contains Ceramide (to repair the skin barrier and reduce moisture loss) and Urea and other NMFs (to bind water in to 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.

Is Eucerin UreaRepair PLUS Lotion 5% Urea safe for children?

This product is recommended for adults and has not been tested for children. For babies and children, we recommend Eucerin AtopiControl. Most products in this range are suitable for babies over three months old with dry to extremely dry skin with Atopic Dermatitis.

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 Eczema (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.

How do I know if I should use Eucerin UreaRepair PLUS 5% or Eucerin UreaRepair PLUS 10%?

Your choice of product should depend on the level of dryness of your skin and the symptoms you experience. If your skin is dry or very dry and rough then 5% Urea should be a sufficient concentration to provide immediate and long-lasting relief. If your skin is extremely dry, flaky and itchy then a higher, 10% concentration of Urea will be more suitable for immediate relief and for delaying symptoms for up to 48 hours. If you are in any doubt, 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.
