Eucerin Intensive 10% s/s Urea Teratment Cream is suitable for use on dry skin conditions such as Xeroderma, Atopic Eczema, Hyperkeratosis and Ichthyosis. Eucerin Intensive 10% w/w Urea Treatment Cream is enriched with two of the skin’s own natural moisturising ingredients, Urea and Lactate. Replenishing these ingredients is the key to trapping moisture into the skin, which ensures long-lasting hydration. Eucerin® Intensive 10% w/w Urea Treatment Cream also contains natural lipids, which along with Urea, can help maintain the skin’s natural moisture balance, keeping it smooth and supple. The formulation forms a fine protective layer on the skin preventing further moisture loss. Eucerin Intensive 10% w/w Urea Treatment Cream is a medicine. Always read the leaflet.
