For dehydrated, sensitive skin

A unique moisturiser that provides intense, 24-hour hydration to dehydrated, sensitive skin.

Product info

Eucerin Aquaporin Active for dry skin is an innovative face moisturiser that enhances the skin’s own hydration system and leaves skin supple, smooth and radiant.

Skin needs water to work efficiently and effectively. Well hydrated skin is smooth and supple and looks radiant. When skin’s natural protection barrier is compromised, it loses moisture and becomes dehydrated. Dehydrated skin looks dull, feels tight and is unable to keep external irritants at bay. It becomes sensitive as a result. Intense, long-lasting hydration is necessary to keep skin looking and feeling its best.

Most moisturisers improve skin hydration by limiting the evaporation of water from the skin and/or by binding moisture in to the outer layer of the skin with humectants such as Glycerin. Skin also has its own hydration system – the Aquaporins. These are microscopic channels that transport water between skin cells and support skin hydration from within. Eucerin Aquaporin Active enhances their natural strength. The formula contains Gluco Glycerol, a state-of-the-art hydrating ingredient, which is proven to increase the number of Aquaporins in the skin. This means that, in addition to limiting evaporation and binding water into the outer layers of skin, Eucerin Aquaporin Active supports skin’s own hydration system.

The velvety texture of Eucerin Aquaporin Active for dry skin provides intense, 24-hour hydration as is quickly absorbed by the skin. It relieves skin tightness and leaves skin smooth and supple. Eucerin Aquaporin Active is clinically and dermatologically proven to be compatible with sensitive skin and is free from fragrance or parabens.

Clinical and dermatological studies

The product has been rigorously tested in both in-vitro and in-vivo studies that verify the efficacy of the range and its compatibility with sensitive skin.

365 women (aged between 20 and 45) took part in a usage test in September 2014 where they tried the product for two weeks. 88 of these women tried Eucerin Aquaporin Active for dry skin. The results were analysed by dermatologists as well as being self-assessed.

    A touch of velvet
    I'm generally a great believer in sticking with the same product or brand once I find something I like, however, there are exceptions to the rule! I experience dry skin that sometimes gets a bit red and itchy - nothing too horrendous but irritating nevertheless. I came across Eucerin Aquaporin Active for Dry Skin and thought I would give it a go. It's quite a plain and simple pot but quite classy in appearance. On first glance, the contents looked rather gloopy to me and I thought I would have trouble rubbing it in as it has quite a greasy texture. But I was wrong! The cream rubbed in beautifully and quickly and had the most lovely texture to it - like brushing your skin with a piece of velvet. There was no sign of greasiness but my skin felt soft and smooth once it was rubbed in fully. It has a very delicate scent, barely there but not completely bland, which I liked. The smooth texture to my skin lasted well and I do believe it felt more hydrated and certainly less irritated. I've been using the cream for about a week now and would highly recommend. You don't need a great deal of cream on each application as it spreads so it should last for a decent length of time and the long term effect is fabulous. My skin still felt soft, smooth and hydrated at the end of the day. It says on the pot that it provides deep 24 hour hydration, relieves tightness and leaves skin smooth and supple and I have to agree. It does exactly what it says! No frills, no flounces, no false promises - a fabulous product that I will be buying again.

    What dry skin?
    I am very impressed by Eucerin AQUAporin. Firstly, upon opening it, it really is odourless and looked a good consistency. It goes on really well and absorbs quickly so there is none of that greasy feeling that you can get with other dry skin creams. After just two days, my skin was feeling much softer and the flakeyness on my forehead was looking better. After just a couple more days it had all disappeared completely which is the first time in a very long time. I also found it very good to use as a base for my make-up as it made it cover more evenly and kept my skin soft. Overall, this is one of the best creams I have tried for dry skin and I will continue to use it daily. Definitely worth giving it a go!

    Surprisingly Good
    Was pleasantly surprised at how well this worked. I have very sensitive skin, that is both oily and dry. This worked really well at helping moisturise my dry areas, without making my oily skin worse. Only complaint was that it left my skin very shiny, but had a nice feel to it.
