Several dermatological studies have proven the efficacy and tolerability of Eucerin Aquaphor Soothing Skin Balm.

“Eucerin’s care for damaged skin works in several ways. When skin is irritated, or extremely dry or cracked, providing the correct conditions for skin regeneration is vital. This water-free, paraffin-based formulation creates the ideal environment by generating a semi-permeable, protective barrier for the skin that regulates the rate of water vapour loss.”

‘The formula with active ingredients also work to support skin regeneration. Panthenol is known to support skin regeneration, Bisabolol has anti-irritant and anti-inflammatory properties and Glycerin has moisturising properties, this improving the skin’s natural barrier function.”

Proven efficacy and tolerability

“Several dermatological studies have proven its efficacy and tolerability. One efficacy study demonstrated its ability to support regeneration.

‘Tolerability studies showed its exceptionally low irritation and sensitisation potential, as no allergic or irritant skin responses were noted during repeated insult patch testing. Its non-comedogenic quality was also demonstrated and its safety in the post-operative care of laser-resurfaced skin was proven by a complete lack of any allergic contact and/or irritation reactions in the test subjects.’

“All these factors have together made Eucerin Aquaphor Soothing Skin Balm trusted by so many people, of all ages, for a range of conditions.”
