Eucerin UreaRepair PLUS Washfluid 5% Urea

+ NMFs

This gentle, replenishing and effective body cleanser for dry to extremely dry skin can be used daily, and will not wash away skin’s natural protective barrier. It is enriched with moisturising Urea and Lactate to prevent skin from drying out.

Many soaps and cleansers contain harsh alkali detergents that wash away the epidermal lipids and moisturising factors that form skin’s natural protective barrier. This leaves it prone to dryness and irritation.

 Eucerin UreaRepair PLUS Washfluid 5% Urea contains very gentle cleansing agents, making it suitable for cleansing dry to extremely dry skin. It is further enriched with Urea and NMFs that bind moisture into the stratum corneum (the upper layer of the skin). The formula is ideal for daily cleansing as it moisturises skin, and supports its natural barrier function.

 Suitable for mature skin and those with Psoriasis. Also for adjunctive care.

Clinical and dermatological studies

Clinical studies have demonstrated that the product offers very good care efficacy and is well tolerated, even by extremely dry and diseased skin.



  • Apply a small amount of the body wash, massage gently into a lather and apply on your skin
  • Rinse thoroughly
  • For best results, use in combination with Eucerin UreaRepair care products

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.
