Eucerin DermoPURIFYER Cleanser

Cleanser for oily and blemish-prone skin with 6% Ampho-Tensides

Eucerin DermoPURIFYER Cleanser is a daily gel, containing mild Ampho-tensides, for gentle yet effective cleansing.

Eucerin DermoPURIFYER Cleanser is a daily-use, soap-free and fragrance-free formula for gentle, yet effective, cleaning for oily and blemish-prone skin. Containing 6% Ampho-tensides, it eliminates excess sebum (seborrhea) while removing dirt and make-up. Its anti-bacterial properties help rid the skin of bacteria and, as it is non-comedogenic, it will not clog pores.


Clinical and dermatological studies prove excellent skin tolerability and efficacy on oily and blemish-prone skin. A placebo-controlled study, on ninety 16-46 year old male and female patients with blemished, was conducted over three-months in 1999. The study was to establish the suitability and efficacy of Eucerin DermoPURIFYER Cleanser, Toner and Night Care.

Main findings

  • The reduction of blemishes was highly significant in all groups.
  • Assessment of the disability index revealed that the subjective wellbeing of the subjects increased significantly.


  • Wet face.
  • Apply the cleanser to hands and work into a lather. Apply to face avoiding the eye area.
  • Rinse off with warm water.

Frequently asked questions

Are blemishes caused by poor hygiene?

Blemishes are not a sign of poor bodily hygiene. On the contrary: too frequent cleansing of the skin with aggressive cleansing products can irritate the skin even more. Nevertheless, you should take care to cleanse your skin twice daily with a mild, nondehydrating facial cleanser in order to remove excess sebum, sweat and dead skin cells from the skin.

Are blemishes a sign of an allergy?

Blemishes are not an allergic reaction to particular foods or external stimulation. Allergies manifest themselves characteristically in different ways and can usually be clearly identified as such.

Will my blemishes clear up on its own as I grow older?

Usually the oily, blemish-prone skin get better with increasing age once you are past puberty.  Although, some people suffer after the age of 30. If you have any concerns or you do not see an improvement, please contact your doctor or speak to your pharmacist.

Can I use Eucerin DermoPURIFYER Cleanser if I am already taking topical medication?

Yes, all Eucerin DermoPURIFYER products are suitable for use with common topical therapy. If you are at all concerned, talk to your pharmacist or doctor before using.

Are blemishes caused by dirty skin?

Although dirt doesn't cause blemishes, it is important to cleanse skin twice a day with a mild, non-dehydrating facial cleanser in order to remove excess sebum, sweat and dead skin cells as well as any dirt and left-over make up. It is equally important, however, not to over cleanse with aggressive cleansing products as this can irritate skin even more.

Is oily or blemish-prone skin inherited?

Yes. Genetic predisposition plays a large part. If both parents suffered from oily skin or blemishes during their adolescence, then there is a greater likelihood that their children will also.

Eucerin DermoPURIFYER products have been proven in clinical and dermatological studies to be both effective and have very good skin tolerability.
