A mild but effective cleansing water that removes make-up and excess sebum

Eucerin ProAcne Solution Micellar Water is a refreshing solution with APG Complex: an effective yet extra-mild make-up remover, cleanser and toner. Alcohol-free, it gently but effectively removes all water-soluble eye and face make-up without irritating or disrupting skin’s natural moisture barrier. Quick and convenient to use, it helps prepare your skin for your topical acne treatment product or moisturiser and has been tested on, and proven to be compatible with, sensitive skin and eyes. Skin feels clean and soothed, is noticeably soft and supple and is well prepared for care products.

Clinical and dermatological studies

Clinical and dermatological studies prove very good tolerability and efficacy on blemish-prone skin. Suitable for sensitive skin.

MAIN FINDINGS

The product was tested in controlled usage studies amongst females aged 18 to 75. The sample included volunteers with sensitive skin. The following results were recorded: 

  • Skin hydration improves: Eucerin ProAcne Solutoin Micellar Water does not dry skin and moisture significantly increases after one week of regular use. 
  • Proven to be suitable for sensitive skin, including the sensitive skin around the eyes. Also proven to be safe for eyes and for contact lens wearers.

Frequently asked questions

Is Eucerin ProAcne Solution Micellar Water suitable for removing eye make-up?

Yes. It has been clinically and opthalmologically tested and proven to be compatible with the sensitive skin around your eyes as well as with the eyes themselves. The eye contour area is particularly delicate and sensitive with a different pH level to facial skin. Eucerin ProAcne Solution Micellar Water respects this difference and has been formulated to pH 7.4 - the optimum pH for the eye area.

Eucerin ProAcne Solution Micellar Water will remove all water soluble eye make-up.

Do I really need to cleanse my skin in the morning and the evening?

Yes. Your skin works hard at renewing itself over night so, when you cleanse in the morning, you are removing sebum (the oily substance that your skin produces naturally to stop it drying out). At the end of the day you need to remove sebum, sweat and any make-up that you may have been wearing. Cleansing your skin also ensures that it is able to absorb the active ingredients in your care products.

What does Micellar mean?

Micelles are microscopic, spherical aggregates of surfactant molecules. Each surfactant molecule has a hydrophilic (water-loving) head that is attracted to water molecules and a hydrophobic (water-hating) tail that repels water and simultaneously attaches itself to the oil and grease in dirt. These opposing forces loosen dirt and suspend it in the water which is wiped away on the cotton pad. Micellar cleansers are used without water and are especially suitable for sensitive skin. 

When should I use the ProAcne Solution Micellar Water and when should I use Eucerin ProAcne Solurion Toner?

Micellar water is a cleanser, toner and make-up remover all in one intended for use when you need a quick and convenient cleansing solution. Toner is applied after using a dedicated cleanser such as Eucerin ProAcne Solution Cleansing Gel and prepares skin for moisturiser and other care products.

Eucerin ProAcne Solution Toner is particularly suitable for oily and blemish-prone skin as it feels refreshing but, as it contains alcohol, we do not recommend that you use it during medical acne-treatment. If you are undergoing medical acne treatment and enjoy using a toner, then use Eucerin ProAcne Solution Micellar Water to tone your skin after cleansing thoroughly with Eucerin ProAcne Solution Cleansing Gel instead.

Eucerin ProACNE Solution Effective skin care products for oily/ acne-prone skin

The Eucerin ProAcne Solution range has been specially formulated to work against the main causes of oil/acne-prone skin:

  • micro-inflammation: the root cause of the acne cycle 
  • excess sebum production which is also known as seborrhea
  • hyperkeratosis (a thickening of the external layers of skin) which then leads to blackheads and whiteheads - bacterial growth which leads to visible inflammation in the form of papules and pustules

The formulas include: 

  • Licochalcone A: a highly effective anti-inflammatory that soothes irritations and helps to reduce redness
  • Salicylic Acid: an antibacterial ingredient with a comedolytic effect that reduces blemishes and prevents them from re-appearing 
  • Sebum-regulating technology: reduces sebum production

The ProAcne Solution AI Clearing Treatment also contains:

  • 10% Hydroxy Complex: a highly effective combination of peeling agents (Glycolic-, Salicylic- and Polyhydroxy Acids) that helps to resurface skin, unclog pores, reduce P. acnes (bacteria) and remove dead skin cells

The range includes mild but effective cleansers and a selection of care products specially formulated for oily/acne-prone skin many of which are suitable for use alongside medical acne treatment.

Clinical and dermatological studies prove that the products are compatible with oily/acne-prone skin and very effective at treating and relieving symptoms
