Expert skin care for very dry and even cracked skin - clinically proven to support skin regeneration

This water-free ointment creates the ideal environment to support the recovery process of dry, damaged or irritated skin. 

Product info

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

Ingredients

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.
