Body wash for dry skin, very dry skin and extremely dry skin

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

Eucerin UreaRepair ORIGINAL 5% Urea Washfluid contains very gentle cleansing agents, making it suitable for cleansing very dry, rough body skin. It is further enriched with Urea and NMFs which protect skin from drying out further and relieve the itchiness that often comes with dry skin. The formula leaves skin smooth and supple and is ideal for daily cleansing as it moisturizes skin and supports its natural barrier function.

The body wash for dry skin is suitable for those with mature skin, Atopic Dermatitis and/or Psoriasis. It can also be used for adjunctive care.

Clinical and dermatological studies

Clinical and dermatological studies prove very good efficacy and tolerability, even on extremely dry and diseased skin.
