Eucerin DermoPURIFYER Hydrating Care

Care with the anti-inflammatory Licochalcone A

Eucerin DermoPURIFYER Hydrating Care significantly reduces the main side effects of standard acne medication.

Eucerin DermoPURIFYER Hydrating Care is an oil- and fragrance-free oil-in-water (O/W) emulsion for oily, impure and acne-prone skin. Its unique combination of anti-inflammatory Licochalcone A, anti-bacterial Decandiol and sebum-regulating Carnitine effectively act against skin blemishes while sebum absorbing particles visibly refine the pores and mattify the skin, making it an excellent daily use make-up base.


An anti-acne study, was conducted to test the efficacy of Eucerin DermoPURIFYER Hydrating Care. 31 male and female subjects, aged 17-44 years, took part in a blind-study over four weeks. Each was tested twice by a dermatologist during this time.

In another study to test the efficacy of Eucerin DermoPURIFYER Hydrating Care 29 subjects, aged 15-37 years, participated in an 8-week study during which they were tested three times.


  • Photo evaluation showed a visible reduction of comedones and propioni acne bacteria.
  • Self-assessment reported effective moisurisation and smoothness (supported by corneometry and topometry).
  • Participants said the formula was quick to absorb, did not clog pores, made their skin feel soft and supple and that it counteracted the production of excessive sebum.
  • The results showed very good skin tolerability and very positive effects on the condition of the skin in patients with slight acne vulgaris.


  • Apply every morning to well cleansed face and other affected areas.
  • Gently massage into the skin.
  • Avoid contact with eyes.

Frequently asked questions

Is acne caused by poor hygiene?

Acne is not a sign of poor bodily hygiene. On the contrary: too frequent cleansing of the skin with aggressive cleansing products can irritate the skin even more. Nevertheless, you should take care to cleanse your skin twice daily with a mild, nondehydrating facial cleanser in order to remove excess sebum, sweat and dead skin cells from the skin. One should, in any case, avoid "fiddling around" with your fingers on the acne symptoms.

Is acne an allergy?

Acne is not an allergic reaction to particular foods or external stimulation. Allergies manifest themselves characteristically in different ways and can thus be clearly identified as such.

Will my acne clear up on its own as I grow older?

Usually the acne symptoms get better with increasing age once you are past puberty.  Although, some patients suffer from acne also after the age of 30. If you do not see an improvement, please contact a dermatologist.

What can I do about reddening of the skin?

Reddening can be a sign of skin inflammation. That's why a suitable skin care product should also contain anti-inflammatory active ingredients like the Licocalchone A in Eucerin DermoPURIFYER Hydrating Care.

Is acne contagious?
