Eucerin Sun Creme Sensitive Protect SPF 50+

An easily-absorbed sun creme for the face that protects and soothes sensitive and dry skin.

Eucerin’s Advanced Spectral Technology offers very high factor UVA/UVB protection and HEVIS light defense. The sunscreen also supports skin’s own DNA repair mechanism.

A facial sunscreen to protect and soothe sensitive and dry skin

Eucerin Sun Creme Sensitive Protect SPF 50+ is an advanced facial sunscreen designed specifically to protect against sun-induced skin ageing and pigment spots. For normal and dry skin. Water-resistant.

This innovative formulation provides comprehensive protection against UV damage – in both the upper and lower layers of the skin:

  • A highly-effective, photostable, UVA/UVB filter system with Tinosorb S provides reliable protection against sunburn. EU- and Cosmetics Europe – The Personal Care Association (formerly called Colipa)-compliant.
  • DNA protection with Glycyrrhetinic Acid, which supports the skin´s own DNA protection and repair mechanisms.
  • Cellular protection with Licochalcone A, a powerful antioxidant that protects the skin cells against damage caused by free radicals.

Clinical Studies

Clinical studies have proven the efficacy and skin compatibility of Eucerin Sun Creme Sensitive Protect SPF 50+, even in patients with Atopic Dermatitis. Suitable for sensitive skin and after a chemical peeling or laser therapy.



  • Avoid contact with the eyes.
  • Do not use for small children.
  • Avoid intensive midday sun and extensive sun exposure as even sunscreens with high SPFs do not offer a 100% protection.
  • Apply generously before sun exposure & reapply frequently, especially after swimming, towelling and sweating to maintain the original protection. An insufficient application of sunscreen  reduces the protection effect.
  • Avoid contact with textiles and hard surfaces to prevent staining.
  • Do not stay too long in the sun, even while using a sunscreen product.

Frequently asked questions

What SPF sunscreen do I need?

Sun Protection Factor (SPF) increases the time it takes for the skin to burn. For example, a person who gets sunburnt after 30 minutes of sun exposure without sunscreen would not get sunburnt for 300 minutes using a sunscreen in high enough amounts with a sun protection factor of 30. However, it is best to only stay in the sun for up to 60% of this time, and remember that skin damage can occur even before sunburn is visible. Additionally we know that no sun protection product has a 100% protection.

Is Eucerin Sun Creme Sensitive Protect SPF 50+ suitable for young children?

Eucerin Sun Creme Sensitive Protect SPF 50+ was specifically developed for adult skin. For children over 1 year old try Eucerin Kids Sun Lotion SPF 50+

What is the difference between a fluid and a creme sunscreen?

Fluids are designed for combination to oily skin as they have a non-greasy texture that does not leave an oily shine. Cremes are specifically designed for normal to dry skin.

What is the difference between mineral and chemical UVA/UVB filters, and which one should I use?

Chemical filters absorb UV rays and transform UV rays into harmless warmth, whereas mineral filters remain on the surface of the skin and reflect and scatter UV rays that reach the surface of the skin. While chemical filters are generally considered to be safe, the use of mineral filters is advisable in case of intolerance towards chemical filters or for sun protection for babies and toddlers, whose skin is highly sensitive.

What is the difference between UVA and UVB rays?

Long wave UVA (Ultraviolet A) rays emitted by the sun penetrate deeply into the skin and are the originating factor of oxidative stress in the skin. They play a greater role in long-term sun damage and are a major cause of skin ageing and skin cancer. In addition, UVA rays may trigger polymorphic light eruption (PLE), the so-called sun allergy. Short wave UVB (Ultraviolet B) rays, on the contrary, cause immediate visible damage to the skin, leading to what we usually refer to as sunburn. It penetrates the skin less deeply than UVA but is the main responsibility for cellular DNA damage.

What is the difference between Eucerin Sun Creme Sensitive Protect SPF 50+ and Eucerin Sun Creme Tinted SPF 50+?

While both these sunscreens are SPF 50+ and offer a very high level of sun protection, Eucerin Sun Creme Tinted SPF 50+ contains mineral tinted pigments for a natural tanned looking skin tone, and also allows the covering up of pigment spots. It is suitable for all skin types. Eucerin Sun Creme Sensitive Protect SPF 50+ contains Glycyrrhetinic Acid to support skin´s own DNA protection and repair mechanisms. It is suitable for normal to dry skin.

Eucerin Sun Protection Superior sun protection for your skin´s individual needs


Eucerin Sun products offer comprehensive protection against sun-induced skin damage.

The innovative Advanced Spectral Technology combines broadband and photostable UVA and UVB filters
1 for reliable UV protection with antioxidant Licochalcone A for high-energy visible (HEVIS) light defense. Glycyrrhetinic Acid provides additional DNA protection.2

The superior sun protection range includes products that are tailored to individual skin needs and contain active ingredients for specific skin conditions:

  • If your skin is oily and/or acne-prone, the formula containing sebum-regulating Oil Control Technology with lipid-absorbing pigments leaves an immediate dry touch finish and has a long-lasting anti-shine effect.
  • If your primary skin concern is premature aging, the Photoaging products with short- and long-chain Hyaluronic Acid will visible reduce the signs of skin aging.
  • If you are prone to hyperpigmentation, Eucerin Sun Fluid Pigment Control SPF 50+ protects skin from sun-induced hyperpigmentation and helps to reduce dark spots and prevent their re-appearance.
  • If your skin is prone to sun allergies, the Sun Protection and After Sun formulas with Alpha-Glucosylrutin will help to prevent sun-induced allergies such as PLE.

The range also includes Eucerin Kids Sun products (which have been specially formulated to soothe and protect your child’s sensitive and delicate skin) as well as both adult and children’s products that are suitable for atopic skin. 

Eucerin Sun products are available in a range of medium, high and very high SPFs. All are clinically and dermatologically proven to be both highly effective and well tolerated by sensitive skin.

1 - Meeting the highest standards for UVA and UVB protection as defined by Cosmetics Europe.  The levels of UVA protection are higher than the EU requirement. 
2 -  Eucerin Kids Mineral Sun Lotion does not include Advanced Spectral Technology but uses clinically proven non-chemical filters. Eucerin Sun Lotion Extra Light Sensitive Protect, Eucerin Sun Spray Sensitive Protect, Eucerin Sun Spray Transparent Sensitive Protect and Eucerin Sun Spray Transparent Dry Touch do not contain Glycyrrhetinic Acid.
