Eucerin Aquaphor Soothing Skin Balm  is ideal for a wide range of skin conditions, as it accelerates skin regeneration. Initially formulated for extremely dry, cracked or irritated skin, Aquaphor Soothing Skin Balm is now recommended by dermatologists worldwide for various skin complaints. It is also frequently recommended for the treatment of skin after superficial dermatological procedures.


Eucerin Aquaphor Soothing Skin Balm was first introduced in the US and has been a success ever since.

Eucerin Aquaphor Soothing Skin Balm is now widely used by dermatologists in many countries around the world.

Rainer Wolber, PhD, Head of Research & Development Eucerin, has witnessed Eucerin Aquaphor rapid growth in popularity first hand.

“There are many obvious reasons for Aquaphor great success; its effectiveness, the fact that it is a water-free ointment that generates the ideal environment to heal damaged or irritated skin, its tolerability on irritated skin, and not least its numerous uses.”

Its unique mode of action makes it suitable for a wide range of skin conditions. Eucerin Aquaphor Soothing Skin Balm is clinically proven to accelerate skin regeneration to aid the healing of extremely dry, damaged or irritated skin.

The Beiersdorf research and development center is based in Hamburg, Germany.
Several dermatological studies have proven the efficacy and tolerability of Eucerin Aquaphor Soothing Skin Balm.

“Eucerin’s solution to damaged skin works in several ways to aid healing. When skin is broken or irritated, or extremely dry or cracked, providing the correct conditions for skin regeneration is vital. This water-free, paraffin-based formulation creates the ideal wound healing environment by generating a semi-permeable, protective barrier for the skin that regulates the rate of water vapour loss.”

‘The formula with active ingredients also work to accelerate skin regeneration. Panthenol is known to improve skin regeneration, Bisabolol has anti-irritant and anti-inflammatory properties and Glycerin has moisturizing properties, this improving the skin’s natural barrier function.”

Eucerin Aquaphor Soothing Skin Balm – efficient in many ways

“In addition to its effectiveness in aiding the healing of broken skin, Eucerin Aquaphor Soothing Skin Balm also conditions and soothes the skin, and is clinically proven for the use on extremely dry, chapped, chafed or cracked skin. This makes it ideal for a wide range indications, whether it’s for soothing skin that has recently undergone a superficial dermatological treatment, such as laser therapy, a chemical peel or dermabrasion, or for use on babies skin or even for athletes, keeping them free from uncomfortable chafing, blisters, and other skin conditions that can occur from frequent exercise.”

But the versatility of Eucerin’s tried and tested skin regeneration formula doesn’t stop there. Dr. Wolber explains how it is also recommended for use in certain irritable skin conditions. Eucerin Aquaphor Soothing Skin Balm is well tolerated, gentle, hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic, odourless, and free of fragrances, colourants, alcohol and preservatives that could cause irritation or contact dermatitis.  

“It is also gentle enough for use on highly irritable skin, for instance in Atopic Dermatitis, Xerosis, or occupational dry skin. It only has a minimal number of ingredients and therefore the potential risk for irritations is minimised.”

Proven efficacy and tolerability

Proven efficacy and tolerability

“Several dermatological studies have proven its efficacy and tolerability. One efficacy study demonstrated its ability to enhance superficial wound regeneration by significantly reducing the time needed to regenerate a blister wound. Further, a wound model study revealed the accelerated healing of laser induced wounds – Aquaphor treated wounds also had less erythema than untreated wounds.”

‘Tolerability studies showed its exceptionally low irritation and sensitisation potential, as no allergic or irritant skin responses were noted during repeated insult patch testing. Its non-comedogenic quality was also demonstrated and its safety in the post-operative care of laser-resurfaced skin was proven by a complete lack of any allergic contact and/or irritation reactions in the test subjects.’

“All these factors have together made Eucerin Aquaphor Soothing Skin Balm trusted by so many people, of all ages, for a range of conditions.”
