This gentle, replenishing and effective body cleanser for dry to extremely dry skin can be used daily, and will not wash away skin’s natural protective barrier. It is enriched with moisturising Urea and Lactate to prevent skin from drying out.
Many soaps and cleansers contain harsh alkali detergents that wash away the epidermal lipids and moisturising factors that form skin’s natural protective barrier. This leaves it prone to dryness and irritation.
Eucerin UreaRepair PLUS 5% Urea Replenishing Body Wash Fluid contains very gentle cleansing agents, making it suitable for cleansing very dry, rough body skin. It is further enriched with Urea and NMFs which protect skin from drying out further and relieve the itchiness that often comes with dry skin. The formula leaves skin smooth and supple and is ideal for daily cleansing as it moisturises skin and supports its natural barrier function.
The body wash for dry skin is suitable for those with mature skin, Atopic Dermatitis and/or Psoriasis. It can also be used for adjunctive care.
Clinical and dermatological studies prove very good efficacy and tolerability, even on extremely dry and diseased skin.
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.
Eucerin UreaRepair PLUS 5% Urea Replenishing Body Wash Fluid is a water-based cleanser with added moisturising factors and is suitable for very dry, rough skin and Psoriasis. While it is also suitable for atopic skin, it has not been specially formulated for those with Atopic Dermatitis. Eucerin AtoControl Bath and Shower Oil is an oil-based bathing product, so is ideally suited for very dry and atopic skin. It can also be used as a bath additive for babies from three months.

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.
