Frequently asked questions

What is Enzyme Protection?

Eucerin Skin Research developed a method to evaluate the activity of the enzyme trypsin present in the topmost layer of skin. Lab tests proved that the Eucerin Sensitive Skin care products activate it to strengthen skin’s natural defences from the inside out.

What is the active principle of the Eucerin pH5 products?

Eucerin pH5 cleansing and moisturizing products contain very mild, dermatologically tested ingredients ideal for sensitive skin and sensitive dry skin. All of these products have excellent skin compatibility and protect your skin against daily environmental stress. The pH5 Citrate Buffers contained in Eucerin pH5 products naturally stabilize the hydrolipid film of skin. Glycerin and Dexpanthenol protect from drying out and support the regeneration of the skin.

How can you tell if a product is safe for sensitive skin?

Eucerin Sensitive Skin products have been specially developed to combine excellent skin protection and regeneration with clinically proven skin tolerability. However, in general, if you’re trying out a new product, apply it repeatedly to skin at the flexure of the elbow. If it does not lead to redness, swelling or itching the product can be assumed to be compatible with your skin.

Talk to your dermatologist or pharmacist if you’re worried about any of your symptoms.

What are surfactants, and which ones does Eucerin use?

Surfactants are active cleansing agents, also called active surface or active interface substances. They are organic compounds that influence the molecular adhesion on the contact surfaces of various materials (like skin and dirt particles) by reducing the surface tension to ease the removal of dirt particles, for example.
Eucerin cleansing products contain mild surfactants that demonstrate excellent skin compatibility, documented in comprehensive clinical studies.

Eucerin Sensitive Skin Activating skin’s natural defences

Our skin is naturally well-protected from environmental influences through its own defences, which are controlled by enzymes. They regulate bacterial growth, maintain moisture and protect against irritation. In sensitive skin, however, enzyme activity is reduced and the barrier function compromised, which leads to irritability and dryness.

Eucerin offers a complete range of products specially developed to combine excellent skin protection and regeneration with clinically proven skin tolerability. Unique ingredients with a pH value of 5 restore enzyme activity, strengthening the natural protection layer and regulating the moisture balance of skin. So skin feels noticeably soft and is visibly smooth.
