Eucerin UreaRepair PLUS 5% Urea Hand Cream 75ml

for very dry rough hands

Intensively moisturises and soothes dry to severely dry hands to noticeably smooth and soften skin. 

The skin on our hands is more exposed to external aggressors than on any other part of our body. Frequent hand washing means it is often in contact with water, as well as soaps and other chemicals, and subject to temperature changes. A stable barrier function protects us from these external factors and keeps skin hydrated. When the skin barrier is impaired, skin may lose moisture and hands can look and feel very dry, red and scaly. 

Eucerin UreaRepair PLUS 5% Urea Hand Cream contains Urea, Ceramide and other Natural Moisturising Factors (NMFs). It has been clinically proven to deliver both immediate relief and intense moisturisation for very dry, rough and strained hands, even after repeated hand-washing. It strengthens skin’s natural barrier, making skin resilient to dryness for up to 48 hours.

Suitable for those with Xerosis, Psoriasis, Diabetes and mature skin. Also for adjunctive care.

Clinical Studies

Clinical studies have demonstrated that the product offers very good care efficacy and is well tolerated, even by extremely dry and diseased skin.


Clinical results indicated:

  • An immediate and significant decrease in skin dryness and roughness after a single product application.1
  • A significant decrease in skin dryness and roughness even after six hand washings.1
  • 97.2% of patients scored the hand cream as "very good" and "good" in terms of tolerability.2

UreaRepair PLUS Immediate relief PLUS 48hr delay of dry skin symptoms

Dry skin is a very common condition and accounts for more than 40% of visits to dermatologists. Depending on the severity of dryness, skin can be tight and rough and/or prone to itching, scaling, flakiness and redness. In extreme cases, skin is pathologically dry (Xerosis).

The main reasons for dryness are a lack of moisture and an impaired skin barrier function which results from:

- A lack of lipids: these are essential for a stable barrier function, which also protects from moisture loss.
- A deficit of Urea and Natural Moisturising Factors (NMFs) which bind moisture in to the skin.

All Eucerin UreaRepair PLUS products are formulated with a unique combination of ingredients:

- Ceramide and other lipids to form a lipid envelope to strengthen the skin barrier and protect against moisture loss. 
- Urea and other Natural Moisturising Factors (NMFs) to improve skin’s water-binding capacity and increase its moisture content. 

The formula is clinically proven to replenish both lipids and moisture in the skin to give immediate relief. It also delays the symptoms of dry skin for up to 48 hours. Eucerin UreaRepair PLUS leaves skin looking and feeling smooth, soft and supple.

Eucerin UreaRepair PLUS offers a comprehensive range of products which includes lotions, creams and a cleanser as well as hand care treatments. These products are available with different concentrations of the water-binding active Urea, and the concentration used should vary according to the severity of dryness.

Fixes hands and soothes instantly

Great product! Helps with cracking skin around my nails and just dry, itchy, rough skin on my hands overall - from washing them and especially in the dry months. The thin, protective layer it leaves on the skin immediately after applying also works wonders for irritation. You have to reapply the stuff so infrequently it moisturises so well, and it’s worked miracles on my dry brittle nails too which are long and healthy now! My one friend also uses it on his hands for his severe eczema and it’s the only product out of many that he claims has worked the best. I’m definitely never using another hand cream again!
