Eucerin UreaRepair PLUS 30% Urea Cream
Eucerin UreaRepair PLUS 30% Urea cream
Areas of the body such as our elbows, knees, hands and feet experience lots of pressure and friction. Skin’s protective barrier is disturbed and it is unable to retain sufficient moisture. Skin dries out and can become extremely dry, rough, thickened and scaly.
Eucerin UreaRepair PLUS 30% Urea Cream gives extremely dry skin the intensive treatment it needs. The formula contains a unique combination of:
- highly-concentrated 30% Urea to exfoliate
- Ceramide to repair skin’s barrier
- other Natural Moisturizing Factors (NMFs) to hydrate and bind water in to the skin
Skin is intensely moisturized and looks and feels smooth and soft.
As an intensive treatment, the product should only be applied to localized problem areas1 rather than the whole body. Clinical and dermatological test show that skin is visibly smoother and supple after one week and improves continuously with regular use.
Eucerin UreaRepair PLUS 30% Urea Cream is suitable for areas of hyperkeratotic (the medical term for thickened) skin and for people with Keratosis Pilaris and Psoriasis. It can also be used for adjunctive care in combination with the treatment prescribed by your dermatologist.
- Eucerin UreaRepair PLUS Treatment Cream should not be used on open wounds.
Clinical and dermatological studies
Clinical and dermatological studies prove very good efficacy and tolerability on extremely dry, rough and thick (hyperkeratotic) patches of skin as well as on psoriatic plaques.
How to use
- Apply once or twice daily on localized areas of dry, rough, thickened and scaly skin on your elbows, feet, hands and knees
- Not intended for full body use
- Do not apply to open, bleeding or wet wounds
- Avoid contact with your eyes

How it works
The NMFs in the formula bind water into skin, repairing skin’s barrier and reducing moisture loss. Urea is also a natural moisturizer and, in the high concentration (30%) it is in in this formula, works as a keratolytic agent removing (or exfoliating) dead skin cells thereby reducing the thickness of skin and making it smooth and soft.
- 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
