Product info

Aquaphor ointment for very dry, cracked skin

Our skin works hard to protect our bodies, but sometimes it can become very dry, cracked and irritated as a result. It needs SOS care.

Eucerin Aquaphor Repairing Ointment gives dry to very dry, cracked and irritated skin the SOS care it needs. The water-free ointment forms a gentle, semi-occlusive, protective barrier over skin that supports the natural transfer of water vapor and oxygen to and from skin allowing skin to ‘breathe’ and strengthen its natural protective barrier. The ointment is enriched with Glycerin and Panthenol. Glycerin is an effective moisturizer that attracts water and helps to keep it in the skin. It works alongside Panthenol which helps to speed up regeneration and repair while also moisturizing skin.

Fragrance- and preservative-free, Eucerin Aquaphor Repairing Ointment has been clinically and dermatologically proven to repair very dry, cracked and irritated skin.

The soothing, transparent ointment is easy to apply and massages gently into problem areas of skin such as the knees and elbows, cracked knuckles and cuticles and cracked heels. With only a few ingredients, it is well tolerated by sensitive skin and is suitable for use on babies and children as well as on minor burns and on skin after superficial dermatological procedures such as laser treatments and chemical peels1. Skin is regenerated, protected and repaired.

 

  1. Eucerin Aquaphor Repairing Ointment should only be used on re-epithelialized skin (i.e. once new tissue has formed) and not on open, wet or bleeding wounds. Ask your Dermatologist for advice on how long you should wait after treatment before using the product.
Eucerin Aquaphor Repairing Ointment is an SOS multi-tasker

Clinical Studies

Superficial Wound Regeneration

The effect of Eucerin Aquaphor Soothing Skin Balm Tube on the rate of regeneration of superficial, partial thickness blister wounds was assessed in a 10 day dermatological study which enrolled 25 patients between the ages of 18 and 50.

Repeated Insult Patch Test

The cumulative irritancy and the sensitisation potential was assessed in a 5-week dermatological study which enrolled 202 patients who did not have any visible skin disease, and were between 17 to 65 years old.

Laser Wounding Model Study

The rate of regeneration of laser wounds was assessed in an 18-day, double-blind dermatological study with 20 subjects.

Post-Laser Treatment

Evaluation of the safety in Post-Laser Resurfacing Wound Care, 100 patients between 17 and 78 years of age were enrolled in a study which investigated change in the wound site, such as erythema, pruritus, edema, burning sensations, pain etc., due to irritant or elicitation of contact allergy.

Eucerin Aquaphor Soothing Skin Balm Tube

Eucerin Aquaphor Soothing Skin Balm Tube is clinically proven to accelerate skin regeneration to aid the healing of extremely dry, damaged or irritated skin.

This water-free, paraffin-based formulation helps the skin to heal faster by creating the ideal wound healing environment. It quickly generates a semi-permeable, protective barrier over the skin which maintains the natural rate of water vapour, thereby keeping the damaged skin moist to accelerate regeneration. This protective barrier also absorbs and holds the recovering skin’s natural wound healing exudates. The active ingredients Panthenol and Bisabolol are also both clinically proven to accelerate skin regeneration. It also contains Glycerin to moisturise and strengthen the skin barrier.

In addition to its effectiveness in aiding healing, it also conditions and soothes the skin, and has clinically proven efficacy in the treatment of extremely dry, chapped, cracked or irritated skin caused by a superficial dermatological treatment such as laser therapy, a chemical peel or dermabrasion. It is also recommended for skin care use in Xerosis, occupational dry skin. It is also gentle enough for use on babies, and is excellent for soothing nappy rash (diaper rash). It only has a minimal number of ingredients and is therefore well tolerated.

Eucerin Aquaphor Soothing Skin Balm Tube is well tolerated, gentle, non-acnegenic, non-comedogenic, odourless, and free of fragrances, colourants, alcohol and preservatives that could cause irritation or contact dermatitis.

  • fragrance-free
  • preservatives-free

Ingredients

How it works

1 creates a protective barrier keeping skin´s own moisture to create an ideal healing environment 2 allows the flow of excess of fluid and oxygen

Eucerin Aquaphor Repairing Ointment gives very dry skin the SOS care it needs and is clinically proven to repair dry to very dry, cracked or irritated skin.

The Paraffinium Liquidum (Liquid Paraffin) and Cera Microcristallina (a light and flexible wax) in the transparent, water-free ointment make it easy to apply gently to problem areas of skin. They form a protective but semi-occlusive barrier over the skin that supports the natural transfer of water vapor and oxygen to and from skin, allowing skin to ‘breathe’ and strengthen its natural barrier function. The Glycerin and Panthenol in the formula are moisturizing actives that smooth skin and give it the moisture it needs to speed up regeneration.

How it works

1 Creates a protective barrier keeping skin´s own moisture to create an ideal environment 2 Allows the flow of excess of fluid and oxygen

The active ingredients work in complementary ways to speed up the healing process. Paraffinum Liquidum and Cera Microcristallina form a semi-permeable, protective coat over the skin which maintains the natural rate of water vapour loss due to evaporation, which in turn keeps the damaged skin moist as the flow of moisture from the deeper skin layers to the upper layers is maintained. Panthenol penetrates into the skin and conditions it by aiding important processes that hydrate and regenerate the skin. At the same time, Bisabolol soothes the damaged skin. The inclusion of Glycerin moisturizes the skin and strengthens its natural barrier function.

    I used this range when I was on Accutane meds for my acne. The only range that managed to soothe my acne flared skin. Also now use on baby’s skin from nappy rash to heat rash. Works like a dream, and recommended by the pediatrician.
