Eucerin AQUAporin ACTIVE for dry skin


For dehydrated, sensitive skin

A unique moisturiser that provides intense, 24-hour hydration to dehydrated, sensitive skin.

Product info

Eucerin AQUAporin ACTIVE for dry skin is an innovative face moisturiser that enhances the skin’s own hydration system and leaves skin supple, smooth and radiant.

Skin needs water to work efficiently and effectively. Well hydrated skin is smooth and supple and looks radiant. When skin’s natural protection barrier is compromised, it loses moisture and becomes dehydrated. Dehydrated skin looks dull, feels tight and is unable to keep external irritants at bay. It becomes sensitive as a result. Intense, long-lasting hydration is necessary to keep skin looking and feeling its best.

Most moisturisers improve skin hydration by limiting the evaporation of water from the skin and/or by binding moisture in to the outer layer of the skin with humectants such as Glycerin. Skin also has its own hydration system – the Aquaporins. These are microscopic channels that transport water between skin cells and support skin hydration from within. Eucerin AQUAporin ACTIVE enhances their natural strength. The formula contains Gluco Glycerol, a state-of-the-art hydrating ingredient, which is proven to increase the number of Aquaporins in the skin. This means that, in addition to limiting evaporation and binding water into the outer layers of skin, Eucerin AQUAporin ACTIVE supports skin’s own hydration system

The velvety texture of Eucerin AQUAporin ACTIVE for dry skin provides intense, 24-hour hydration as is quickly absorbed by the skin. It relieves skin tightness and leaves skin smooth and supple. Eucerin AQUAporin ACTIVE is clinically and dermatologically proven to be compatible with sensitive skin and is free from fragrance or parabens.


The product has been rigorously tested in both in-vitro and in-vivo studies that verify the efficacy of the range and its compatibility with sensitive skin. 365 women (aged between 20 and 45) took part in a usage test in September 2014 where they tried the product for two weeks. 88 of these women tried AQUAporin ACTIVE for dry skin. The results were analysed by dermatologists as well as being self-assessed

  • Eczema
    My child have eczema on his fingers it get dry and make like sores and you can pull his dry skin off and it is black can I use this for his eczema

    Hi Mary,

    Aquaporin Face cream is for use on adults only. We would perhaps suggest that you discuss your son's eczema-related issue, with a medical practitioner, with a view to discussing the way forward. In the meantime, if you wish to soothe the area, you would be able to use the Aquaphor Soothing Skin Balm which is available in a tube and tub format and can be purchased at all Clicks and Dischem stores country-wide.

    Many thanks,

  • Amazing
    I have dry, dehydrated skin and nothing leaves it feeling as plump and hydrated as Eucerin Aquaporin. This product absorbs quickly and does not leave an oily cast. My skin is usually sensitive and breaks out easily, but I’ve never experienced any reactions, stinging or pimples while using this. I’ve been using this for years and in my quest for flawless hydrated skin, I’ve often tried other (much more expensive) products, which have always left me disappointed and zitty. I’ve learned my lesson, and will stick with this product for many years to come!
