Eucerin DermoPurifyer Cleansing Gel is a daily gel, containing mild Ampho-tensides, for gentle yet effective cleansing.

Cleansing gel for impure and acne prone skin

Eucerin DermoPurifyer Cleansing Gel is a daily-use, soap-free and fragrance-free formula for gentle, yet effective, cleaning for impure and blemish-prone skin. Containing 6% Ampho-tensides, it eliminates excess sebum (serbboreah) while removing dirt and make-up. Its anti-bacterial properties rid skin of bacteria and inhibit bacterial reproduction and, as it is non-comedogenic, it will not clog pores.


Clinical and dermatological studies prove excellent skin tolerability and efficacy on patients with impure and acne-prone skin. A placebo-controlled study, on ninety 16-46 year old male and female patients with acne vulgaris, was conducted over three-months in 1999. The study was to establish the efficacy of Eucerin DermoPurifyer Cleansing Gel, Toner and Night Care.


  • The reduction of non-inflammatory lesions and papules was highly significant in all treatment groups.
  • Assessment of the disability index revealed that the subjective wellbeing of the subjects increased significantly.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will the Cleansing Gel remove my make-up completely?

It is a good idea to remove eye make-up, especially the water-resistant type, with a dedicated make-up remover (e.g. Eucerin DermatoClean Waterproof Eye Make-up Remover) before thoroughly cleansing skin with the Cleansing Gel.

Can I use the cleansing gel with an electric cleansing brush?

Yes, of course, but be very careful cleaning your skin in this way if you are undergoing medical acne therapy.

My skin feels tight after cleansing. Is that normal?

Tightness can be a sign of dry skin. If your skin feels tight be sure to thoroughly moisturise after cleansing. Consider using one of the moisturisers in the Eucerin DermoPurifyer range.

Is acne caused by having dirty skin?

This is a common myth but it’s not true. It is, however, important to choose products that have been specially formulated for blemish- and acne-prone skin – mild but effective cleansing gels are much more suitable than harsh soap-based alternatives.

Is acne genetic?

A genetic predisposition certainly counts. If both parents had acne in their youth there is a greater likelihood that their children will also experience acne.


- Wet face.

- Apply the cleanser to hands and work into a lather. Avoid contact with the eyes.

More breakouts

Since i started using the wash. New pimples started to appear. Knowing that regularly i do not experience this kind of red big pimples. I'm starting to blame the wash for this.

Dineo ,

Is it too early to expect results?

I have been using the Dermopurifung range for over 2 and a half weeks and I see no changes. My skin still breakouts everyday. Pretty much seems like products are not doing anything. How long am I suppose to wait? I’m actually considering stopping because it seems like I wasted my money. I really had high hopes.

Hi Dineo,

Thank you for your Review.  Acne is a very complicated skin condition which does take time to improve.  We would recommend that you carry on using the range, at least until you have completed your products.  In the meantime, we would also encourage you to read the detail contained in our web-site www.eucerin.co.za/acne.  This information is very pertinent and informative in respect of the acne condition and its root causes.   If you have serious concerns relating to your skin condition, we would recommend that you visit a Dermatologist to discuss possible medical intervention.  Thank you for your interest in the Eucerin brand and for getting in touch.

Many Thanks,

Eucerin ZA Team

I have been using the dermopurifung rang for well over a month now however my breakouts are even worse than before. I just need to know if that is normal as I am a very patient person who is willing to wait until I see good results.

Awesome Product

I have been battling with acne for years and decided to try this product after reading up on it at the local pharmacy. It has been amazing on my skin and in combination with the mattifying fluid and oil control spf +50 sunscreen for the face! My dermatologist even commented on my first treatment after two weeks of using the products. Happy customer!!
