Eucerin DermoPurifyer Cleansing Gel Pump

For impure & acne prone skin 400ml

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.

I’m trying this out.

Hey,my dermatologist recommended I use this product. But i’m very skeptical because I’ve tried everything to get rid of my oily skin and dark marks. Is it a guarantee that this product will work,as I’m tired of wasting my money on products that don’t work💔
Hi Phetolo,

The range that we would recommend for hyper-pigmentation (dark marks) is our Even Pigment Perfector range.  This range contains a ground-breaking ingredient, Thiamidol, which has been extensively tested over a period of 10 years.  The product is formulated to reduce the dark marks caused by hyper-pigmentation.  Please read more about the product by clicking onto this link to our web-site https://www.eucerin.co.za/specials/uncover-even-pigment.  If you have oily skin, you can use the Dermo Purifyer Cleanser in conjunction with the Even Pigment Perfector range.  Should you have any queries relating to our range, please don't hesitate to get in touch via our Consumer Careline 0860 102091 or via e-mail to ConsumerSA.External@beiersdorf.com.  


Many Thanks,

I absolutely love this product range. I have been using it for some time and with hereditary acne, this was the only thing that actually made a significant difference. I would like to ask if Eucerin as a brand will be going plastic free and eco-friendly sometime in the future?
