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.


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 it 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.

      How to use it
      I just bought the product and I'm not sure if after using it I should apply a moisturizer and sunscreen or not.


      Hi Nesisa.  It is recommended that you use the product at night, followed by Mattifying Fluid (moisturiser).  It is also recommended that you use a high factor sunscreen during the day as your skin may be slightly more sensitive during your use of the Skin Renewal Treatment.  Please take a moment to read the information contained on our web-site using the following link:  https://www.eucerin.co.za/products/dermo-purifyer/skin-renewal-treatment

      Sun protection
      Can I use the dermapurifer protective fluid as a last step or I would still need sunscreen?


      Hi Noni.  Thank you for your enquiry.  As the Protective Fluid contains a sun protection factor (SPF) of 30, it would not be entirely necessary to use another sun product in addition to this product.  Should you need any further information, please don't hesitate to get in touch with our Consumer team via e-mail - ConsumerSA.External@beiersdorf.com.  Many thanks again for getting in touch.

      Breaking out
      Hello, I bought a skin renewal treatment in 2021 and I started breaking out with pimples so I stopped. This year I decided to use it again and it’s only been 3 days of use and I am breaking out with new pimples I am not sure if I should continue to use it or stop.

      Hi Cherry.

      Thank you for your enquiry. As with any cosmetic product, if you are certain that a particular product is causing any discomfort or adverse reaction, it is recommended that you stop using the product.

      Many thanks,

      Eucerin ZA
