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.

Eucerin DermoPURIFYER products have been proven in clinical and dermatological studies to be both effective and very good for skin tolerability.

Wonderful Product!

I have been using this product for a couple of months now, after a doctor recommended it to me and have seen so many improvements. This gentle formula means that my sensitive skin does not break out or become irritated. I have been using it alongside the Adjunctive Soothing Cream and have really been enjoying it? Do you recommend that I use the Mattifying Fluid and/or Skin Renewal Treatment from this range as well?
Hi Caity,

Thank you for your Review.  We are pleased to hear that the Dermo Purifyer range has been suiting your needs well.  We are making the assumption that you are taking acne medical (Ruacutane/Oratane etc.), hence your use of the Adjunctive Soothing Cream product.  As this is a moisturiser, we would not recommend that you use an additional moisturiser (Mattifying Fluid).  However, you can ad the Skin Renewal Treatment product to your regimen.  Should you have any further queries, please don't hesitate to get in touch via our Consumer Careline 0860 102091 or via e-mail to



Many Thanks,

Nick ,

Great cleanser

This is a great cleanser. Does it also exfoliate the skin?
Hi Nick,

The Dermo Purifyer Cleanser is not formulated as an exfoliator.  We have a product in the range (Eucerin Dermo Purifyer Scrub) which you would be able to use for this purpose.  The product is available at all Clicks and Dischem stores at an approximate cost of R159.99 for 100ml.    Thanks again for posting your Review.  We really appreciate your interest in our brand.


Many Thanks,

Eucerin ZA Team


Great products

I used the 200 ml cleansing gel and I loved every single thing about the product. Is their a diffrence between the 200 ml cleansing gel and this 400 ml product? Other than the size.
Hi Pieter,

Thank you for your Review. The 200ml and 400ml Dermo Purifyer Cleanser are exactly the same product, but simply in different sized bottles.


Best facial cleanser I have ever tried!

This cleanser, combined with the oil control moisturizer, has helped clear up my skin immensely.

I like how my skin feels after I wash for 10 minutes but that's it. Been using over a month and my skin has gotten the worse it's been and been getting large red pimples which I never got. Not sure if I want to continue.
