When the skin on our bodies has a stable barrier function, it protects us from external irritants and is able to maintain its optimal level of hydration. But when that barrier is impaired, skin can lose moisture and look and feel dry as a result.
Eucerin UreaRepair PLUS 5% Urea Lotion gives dry, rough and bumpy body skin the daily care it needs. It contains a unique combination of ingredients – Urea, Ceramide and other Natural Moisturising Factors (NMFs) – which bind moisture in and repair skin´s natural protective barrier to prevent further moisture loss. The formula has been clinically and dermatologically proven to deliver immediate relief and intense, long-lasting moisturisation, delaying dryness and roughness for up to 48 hours.
Skin is intensely moisturised and looks and feels smooth and soft.
The dry skin lotion is suitable for those with mature skin and/or Diabetes. It can also be used as adjunctive care.
Clinical and dermatological studies prove very good efficacy and tolerability, even on extremely dry and diseased skin.
Clinical results indicated:
A moisturiser specially formulated for dry, rough skin should be rich in the ingredients that skin needs to prevent moisture loss, bind in more water and strengthen its protective barrier. Left untreated, or treated with a product that doesn’t contain the appropriate ingredients, skin might dry out further and may even crack.
Eucerin’s UreaRepair PLUS 5% Urea Lotion contains Urea and other NMFs (to bind water into the skin) and Ceramide (to repair the skin barrier and reduce moisture loss). The formula gives immediate relief and delays the symptoms of very dry skin (such as roughness and scaliness) for up to 48 hours.
This product is recommended for adults and has not been tested for children. For babies and children with dry skin and Atopic Dermatitis we recommend Eucerin AtoControl. Most products in this range are suitable for babies over three months old.
You can find information about dry skin as well as conditions such as adult-atopic-dermatitis and Psoriasis on this website. You can also take our skin test to find out more about your skin type and condition and how best to care for it. If you are still unsure, or concerned about your symptoms, we recommend you ask a pharmacist or dermatologist for advice.
Your choice of product should depend on the level of dryness of your skin and the symptoms you experience. If your skin is dry and rough then 5% Urea should be a sufficient concentration to provide immediate and long-lasting relief. If your skin is very dry then a higher, 10% concentration of Urea will be more suitable for immediate relief and for delaying symptoms for up to 48 hours. If you are in any doubt, we recommend you ask a pharmacist or dermatologist for advice.

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.
