Eucerin DermoPurifyer Skin Renewal Treatment 40 ml

Blemish-prone skin

A serum with 10% Hydroxy Complex that unclogs pores, visibly reduces blemishes and helps prevent their re-appearance.

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

If I use the serum daily when can I expect to see an improvement?

If used regularly skin will start looking better after just one week.

Can I use the serum in addition to my normal moisturiser and, if so, which should I use first?

Eucerin DermoPurifyer Skin Renewal Treatment combines very well with anti-ageing skincare. We recommend that you use it, in the evenings, alongside Eucerin Hyaluron-Filler Night Cream.

I have both acne-prone and sensitive skin. Can I use Eucerin DermoPurifyer Skin Renewal Treatment?

In principle, yes. But test the product first to ensure it is well tolerated by your skin. You can do this by using a small amount on a small area of skin and leaving it on overnight. If you experience a slight stinging sensation, don’t worry − that just shows that the product is working.

Should I introduce the serum slowly into my routine to help my skin get used to it?

We use a gentle combination of acids that makes the product suitable for use every evening from day one. As with all products, however, it is a good idea to test the product on a small area of your skin before applying it to your full face.

Can I use this product on holiday in very sunny areas?

If the weather is excessively hot we recommend you stop using the treatment. And always be sure to wear sufficient sun protection. We recommend Eucerin Oil Control Sun Gel-Cream Dry Touch SPF 50+.

Do I need to use sun protection the day after applying this treatment?

We recommend that you use the product in the evening because its peeling effect will make your skin more sensitive to UV rays, and more prone to sunburn. And, even after evening use, it’s important you give your skin adequate protection from the sun the next day. We recommend Eucerin Oil Control Sun Gel-Cream Dry Touch SPF 50+.

Why is the pH of the Eucerin DermoPurifyer Skin Renewal Treatment important?

The product’s pH plays an important role in its effectiveness and skin compatibility. Eucerin DermoPurifyer Skin Renewal Treatment has a pH of between 3.7 and 3.9. This low, mildly acidic pH is perfect for the role of this product as it increases its antibacterial effect and its ability to remove dead skin cells.

Can I use the serum in addition to my normal moisturiser and, if so, which should I use first?

Eucerin DermoPurifyer Skin Renewal Treatment can be used alongside other care products such as moisturisers and anti-ageing treatments. We recommend that you use the Skin Renewal Treatment first and in the evening. If you use the Skin Renewal Treatment in the morning be sure to follow with a sunscreen such as Eucerin Oil Control  Sun Gel-Cream Dry Touch SPF 50+.


  • 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 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.

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 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.

oily skin

I've been using this product in over a month now and my skin gets really oily after 10 minutes of application and it hasn't really helped my acne skin at all.
Hi Sky,

We are sorry to hear that you have not yet seen results following your use of the Skin Renewal treatment.  For optimum results we would suggest that you use the full range of the Eucerin DermoPurifyer products. Please also take a moment to read more about the acne condition on our web-site  Should you be battling with the acne for a long period of time, we would recommend that you obtain a medical opinion on the way forward, from a Dermatologist.  


Many Thanks,

Eucerin ZA Team



I absolutely love your products. But my sensitivities to fragrance and "parfum" throws me off continuing to purchase your products. Is there any way the line will eventually become fragrance free?
Hi Arial,

Thank you for your Review. We understand your challenge in respect of the use of fragrance.  In this regard, please be advised that the Q10 Active range, as well as the AquaPorin Active Day Cream is non-fragranced. In terms of the Dermo Purifyer range, the Cleanser is indeed fragrance-free and you should therefore be able to use the product in confidence. Thank you again for your interest in our brand and for taking the trouble to get in touch.

Many Thanks,

Eucerin ZA Team


Darker marks

Greetings. I have been using this product for just over two weeks in the evenings. I do notice that the pimples are slowly dying but it leaves dark marks that I didn't have. Im even using the DermoPurifyer face gel and during the day I use the even bright which I prefer as I have sensitive skin that is also prone to allergies and this has helped me clear the allergies. Please advice on how I can work on the acne and marks parallel.
Dear Ms. Bararati,

Thank you for your enquiry.

We sincerely apologise for the length of time it has taken to respond. This was due to a technical problem on our side, for which we are really sorry.

We would recommend that firstly, you address the acne/pimple skin condition.  Once your skin is under control in terms of excess sebum (oil) and further outbreaks have been reduced, you could then embark upon the use of the Eucerin Even Brighter product.  The Dermo Purifyer range which you have used partly, is extremely well formulated to address the sebum issues and we would recommend that you use this range exclusively until your skin has improved.  Please take a moment to visit our web-site to read more about the condition and to obtain more information relating to the Dermo Purifyer range.

Many Thanks,

Eucerin ZA Team
