Frequently asked questions

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.

Is Eucerin UreaRepair ORIGINAL Cream 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.

Why is this product more suitable for my elbows and shins than Eucerin UreaRepair PLUS Body Cream 5% Urea or Eucerin UreaRepair PLUS Lotion 5% Urea?

This cream is specially formulated for the treatment of dry skin on certain areas of the body. Its firm texture helps it to target those areas. If you are looking for a cream for full body application, a more fluid texture may be easier to apply.

Eucerin UreaRepair PLUS Immediate + 48h dry skin relief

Dry skin is a very common condition and often results in 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 reason for skin dryness is an impaired skin barrier function which results from: 

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

  • Urea and other Natural Moisturizing Factors (NMFs) to improve skin’s water-binding capacity and increase its moisture content. 
  • Ceramides and other lipids to strengthen the skin barrier and protect against moisture loss.

The formula is clinically proven to replenish both lipids and moisture in the skin to give immediate relief. It delays the symptoms of dry skin for up 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 a cleanser, body lotions and creams (including hand and foot care products) and an intensive treatment cream for problem areas of extremely dry skin. These products are available with different concentrations of water-binding active Urea, and the concentration used should vary according to the severity of dryness.
