Product info

Eucerin DermoPurifyer Skin Renewal Treatment 40 ml

The innovative Eucerin DermoPurifyer Skin Renewal Treatment has been specially formulated to reduce the appearance of pimples, papules and pustules as well as to fade acne marks. 

It is suitable for all mild to moderate forms of acne and has a triple effect:

  • The 10% Hydroxy Complex contains a highly effective combination of peeling agents − Glycolic Acid, Salicylic Acid and Polyhydroxy Acid – which help to resurface skin, unclog pores, reduce bacteria, remove dead skin cells and prevent new blemishes from appearing

The formula also contains Licochalcone A which has been proven to reduce inflammation and help soothe irritation.

Eucerin DermoPurifyer Skin Renewal Treatment starts to visibly improve skin after just one week, revealing clearer and smoother-looking skin over time.

Can be used during pregnancy but should not be used by skin undergoing medical acne treatment.

Clinical studies

* In a Product in Use (PIU) study 40 men and women (aged 12-44) with acne-prone skin used the product once a day (in the evening) for eight weeks. Results were assessed after one, two, four and eight weeks of use. The before and after images show the visible results after eight weeks of use.


In a self-assessment study, 80 women between the ages of 15 and 40 applied Eucerin DermoPurifyer Skin Renewal Treatment every evening for eight weeks. They reported the following results:

  • 95%: Helps to control the oiliness of skin
  • 94%: Prevents new blemishes from appearing
  • 94%: Reduces dark post-acne marks
  • 94%: Has an anti-shine effect
  • 94%: Smooths the skin’s surface
  • 94%: Visibly improves skin’s appearance
  • 93%: Diminishes the visibility of pores
  • 88%: Visibly reduces blemishes
  • 85%: Reduces whiteheads
  • 83%: Reduces blackheads
  • 81%: Reduces inflammatory pimples 


    How To Use


    • Use once a day. Preferably in the evening.
    • Apply a small amount (about the size of a pea) to a thoroughly cleansed face
    • Massage gently into skin
    • Follow with an appropriate care product such as Eucerin DermoPurifyer Mattifying Fluid
    • Avoid contact with your eyes

    Tip: Try out on a small area of skin first. A slight tingling sensation may occur but, if your skin show a visible reaction, consult your dermatologist or pharmacist.

    This product contains Alpha Hydroxy Acids that may increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun and the possibility of sunburn. As a result, we recommend you limit your exposure to the sun while using this product and for a week after. During that period, and after, be sure to apply sun protection in the morning. Try Eucerin Oil Control Sun Gel-Cream Dry Touch SPF 50+.

    Your daily routine


    The care product you use depends on the severity of your acne and on the type of treatment you are undergoing. 

    If you are using medical treatment for acne, Eucerin DermoPurifyer Adjunctive Cream helps to alleviate some of the symptoms such as intense dryness. It should be applied five minutes after your medication so the treatment can absorb fully. 

    If you have mild to moderate acne, but are not undergoing medical acne treatment, use a soothing and mattifying moisturiser such as Eucerin DermoPurifyer Mattifying Fluid in the morning and evening.

    For clearer and smoother-looking skin over time, you may also like to incorporate our skin renewal treatment into your routine. It is suitable for all blemish-prone skin that is not undergoing medical acne treatment and should be used once a day only − ideally in the evening. You can use it before the mattifying fluid or on its own.

    Cleanse and Tone

    Cleanse skin in the morning and evening:

    • am: to remove the sebum and dead skin cells that have accumulated overnight
    • pm: to remove make-up and free skin from the day’s dirt

    Use gentle cleansing products such as Eucerin DermoPurifyer Cleansing Gel with lukewarm water and follow with an appropriate toner. You may also benefit from using a scrub once a week to unclog pores and refine skin texture.

    We do not recommend using an alcohol-based toner and the scrub alongside acne medication as Isotretinoin, Benzoyl Peroxide and Antibiotics can make skin more sensitive. If you like the refreshing feel of a toner, try the alcohol-free Eucerin DermoPurifyer Micellar Water instead.

    Concealer and make-up

    Cover blemishes and even out skin tone with foundation and/or a concealer. Choose products that are non-comedogenic (i.e. that will not block pores) and, ideally, ones that contain ingredients that work to improve the condition of blemish-prone skin. Be sure to remove all make-up before you go to bed.

    Sun protection

    Sun protection is an important step in your morning routine. Blemishes can cause pigmentation issues if over-exposed to the sun, and acne medications can make blemish-prone skin even more sensitive to UV rays. Eucerin Oil Control Sun Gel-Cream Dry Touch SPF 50+ offers the levels of protection that your skin needs and should be applied before your cover-up and make-up. If you’re applying sun protection after a topical acne treatment wait five minutes to allow the treatment to fully absorb.

    • Question
      My dermatology gave me samples of dermoPurifyer oil control ,cleansing gel and skin Renewal treatment,oil control sun gel cream -dry touch ,so would like to know that i must use these products for ever or I need to change to other eucerine product when acne and blemishes are gone?
    • Which product to choose?
      I have an acne probe skin, I currently don't have any pimples but I have a lot of pimple scars, because I always breakout just before my periods. I have also noticed that my lips have become darker even though I don't have aby habits such as smoking... I'm not sure of which products to use. Please advise

      Hi Carol,

      Pimple scarring is always fairly challenging.  However, if the scars are surface scars and are not indented into the skin, you could use the Even Brighter range or the Even Pigment Perfector range, which will indeed assist in brightening the scarring.  However, if they are indented, our product will not assist.  Please take a moment to read through the information contained in our web-site  Your darker lips are a separate issue which you may like to discuss with a Dermatologist.  We regrettably don't have a product which would actively address this particular issue. 

      Many Thanks,

      Eucerin ZA Team

    • Question: Have purchased Skin Renewal treatment already, need your advice please?
      Let me start off by saying how much I love your products! I am currently on Roaccutane treatment and using the Adjunctive Soothing Cream (my favourite moisturiser), the Anti-Redness Concealing Day Cream with SPF25+. My question is: 'Is the Skin Renewal Treatment safe to use while on Roaccutane? If yes, do I use it every night? What would you recommend?'

      Hi Elle,

      Thank you for your query.  The Skin Renewal Treatment is not recommended for users who are currently taking acne medication such as Roaccutane.  You may carry on using the Adjunctive Soothing Cream, but not the Skin Renewal Treatment whilst you are still on the medication.  Please take a moment to read the information on the web-site using the following link:  Should you need any further information, please don't hesitate to get in touch, either via our Consumer Careline 0860 102091 or via e-mail


      Many Thanks,
