Eucerin Aquaphor Soothing Skin Balm
Our skin works hard to protect our bodies, but sometimes it can become very dry, cracked and irritated as a result. It needs SOS care.
Eucerin Aquaphor Soothing Skin Balm gives dry to very dry, cracked and irritated skin the SOS care that it needs. The water-free ointment forms a gentle, semi-occlusive, protective barrier over the skin that supports the natural transfer of water vapour and oxygen to and from the skin, allowing the skin to ‘breathe’ and strengthening its natural protective barrier. The balm is enriched with Glycerin and Panthenol. Glycerin is an effective moisturiser that attracts water and helps to keep it in the skin. It works alongside Panthenol which helps to speed up regeneration and repair while also moisturising skin.
Fragrance- and preservative-free, Eucerin Aquaphor Soothing Skin Balm has been clinically and dermatologically proven to repair very dry, cracked and irritated skin.
The soothing, transparent ointment is easy to apply and massages gently into problem areas of skin such as the knees and elbows, cracked knuckles and cuticles and cracked heels. With only a few ingredients, it is well tolerated by sensitive skin and is suitable for use on babies and children as well as on minor burns and on skin after superficial dermatological procedures such as laser treatments and chemical peels(1). Skin is regenerated, protected and repaired.
(1) Eucerin Aquaphor Soothing Skin Balm should only be used on re-epithelialized skin (i.e. once new tissue has formed) and not on open, wet or bleeding wounds. Ask your Dermatologist for advice on how long you should wait after treatment before using the product.

How To Use
- Apply as frequently as needed on affected areas
- A small fingertip of product is normally enough for both your hands. A medium fingertip of product is about right for problem areas on a baby’s skin, and a slightly larger amount is ideal for each of your feet.
- Massage into your skin using your fingertips. The balm spreads easily as it warms.
- Do not use on open, bleeding or wet wounds. Wait until skin has re-epithelialised before using the product.

How often should I apply Eucerin Aquaphor Soothing Skin Balm?
You can apply Eucerin Aquaphor Soothing Skin Balm as often as you like to soothe and smooth areas of irritated or cracked skin. The handy 7ml jar and the 45ml tube make it easy to pop in your bag and carry around with you wherever you go.
Can I use Eucerin Aquaphor Soothing Skin Balm to care for wounds?
Yes, but the product should not be applied to open, bleeding or wet wounds. Wait until new tissue has formed (the medical term for this is re-epithelialisation) before applying the ointment. If you are in any way concerned about the time a wound is taking to heal, or think it may have become infected, consult your doctor for advice.
Once re-epithelialisation has occurred, Eucerin Aquaphor Soothing Skin Balm creates a protective barrier to support the skin regeneration and is clinically and dermatologically proven to protect and soothe dry, cracked or irritated skin.
Is Eucerin Aquaphor Soothing Skin Balm suitable for use on my baby’s skin?
Yes, the ointment is ideal for use on patches of dry skin on your baby’s face or in the nappy area. It only contains a few gentle but effective ingredients and is fragrance- and preservative-free, and so is suitable for your baby’s sensitive skin. You can find out more in How can I treat areas of very dry skin on my baby?
If your baby has Atopic Dermatitis (commonly known as Eczema), we recommend that you use products from the Eucerin AtoControl range, which have been specially formulated for atopic skin.
Can I use the balm to care for skin with a minor burn?
Yes. Eucerin Aquaphor Soothing Skin Balm is ideal for use on superficial, first-degree burns and small areas of skin. It is a skincare product, not a medical product, but it is clinically proven to help protect irritated skin. You can read more in 'What’s the best way to care for minor burns?'
Do not use the ointment on open burns or burns that are bleeding. If you are in any doubt about the condition of your burn, consult your doctor.
If your skin has been stressed by the sun, we recommend you try Eucerin After Sun Creme Gel Sensitive Relief, which is more suitable for all-over body application.
Is Eucerin Aquaphor Soothing Skin Balm suitable for use on very dry skin all over my face and body?
Yes. Eucerin Aquaphor Soothing Skin Balm can be used anywhere on both your face and body as an SOS skincare treatment. Being an ointment, it is best suited to targeted areas of skin, such as cracked hands or feet and minor grazes and burns.
If you have very dry and rough skin all over your body, try Eucerin Intensive Lotion 10% w/w UREA Cutaneous Emulsion. For very dry and rough facial skin, we recommend Eucerin UreaRepair Face Cream Dry Skin 5% Urea.
My skin is prone to acne. Can I use Eucerin Aquaphor Soothing Skin Balm?
Yes, because it has been clinically and dermatologically proven to be non-comedogenic (which means that it does not cause blemishes). However, if your primary skin concern is acne, we recommend that you use products from the Eucerin DermoPurifyer range, which have been specially formulated for blemish-prone skin.
I’ve recently had laser therapy and/or a chemical peel. Is it OK for me to use Eucerin Aquaphor Soothing Skin Balm?
Yes. Eucerin Aquaphor Soothing Skin Balm is safe to use after laser treatment or a chemical peel and will help support skin regeneration. If you have open wounds on your skin, wait until it has fully re-epithelialised (i.e. when new tissue has formed) before you apply the ointment. If you are in any doubt, ask your dermatologist for advice.
Will the balm help with cracked skin on my hands and damaged cuticles?
Yes. Eucerin Aquaphor Soothing Skin Balm is ideal for softening and soothing cracked skin on your hands. Research has shown that it makes a considerable difference overnight even after just one use, and that those benefits continue with regular use. The transparent balm massages easily into cuticles, softening them so they are easier to push back.
I’ve got cracked skin on my heels. Will Eucerin Aquaphor Soothing Skin Balm help?
Yes. Eucerin Aquaphor Soothing Skin Balm helps support the skin's own regeneration process and repairs cracked skin on your feet. The skin is softened, and cracked heels look and feel smoother.
