Soothes and intensely moisturises skin undergoing medical treatment for blemish-prone skin
DermoPurifyer Oil Control Adjunctive Soothing Cream
I use acne medication and it counteracts both the dryness and irritation perfectly.'
Moisturiser for acne-prone skin
Eucerin DermoPurifyer Oil Control Adjunctive Soothing Cream is a moisturiser suitable for acne-prone skin specially formulated for people undergoing medical acne treatment.
One of the side effects of acne medication is that it frequently causes severe dryness in skin. This intensely moisturising, non-greasy cream alleviates these side effects. Ceramides support the skin’s protective barrier and reduce moisture loss, SymSitive* helps to calm irritations such as stinging and burning directly at source and Licochalcone A helps to soothe irritations. The formula helps to bring demanding, blemish- and acne-prone skin under control and it feels smooth and supple after the first application.
Eucerin DermoPurifyer Oild Control Adjunctive Soothing Cream is suitable for use during pregnancy.

Is this the right product for my skin?
Use this product if …
Your skin has been dried out and irritated by medical treatment for blemished skin.
Try a different product if …
You are no longer having medical treatment for your blemished skin:
Can I carry on using Eucerin DermoPurifyer Oil Control Adjunctive Soothing Cream when I’m no longer having medical treatment for acne?
Yes. The product can be used on an ongoing basis even when you are not having medical treatment for blemished skin. If you have dry, blemish-prone skin it’s likely to be very suitable, but if your skin stops being so dry you may find it too rich and need a lighter product. Try Eucerin DermoPurifyer Oil Control Mattifying Fluid.
Which type of medical acne treatments does Eucerin DermoPurifyer Oil Control Adjunctive Soothing Cream work with?
It is an ideal moisturiser to accompany both topical treatments (such as Adapalene and Benzoyl Peroxide) and systemic therapies for blemished skin (such as Isotretinoin).
I’ve previously used the Eucerin DermoPurifyer Adjunctive Hydrating Care SPF30. What is the difference between that and Eucerin DermoPurifyer Oil Control Adjunctive Soothing Care?
We have fundamentally changed the formula of this product. If you used Adjunctive Hydrating Care in the past then you will be absolutely fine to use this new cream and we hope you’ll experience additional benefits. Our new, improved formula contains SymSitive*, Panthenol, more Licochalcone A, Ceramide and more Glycerin.
It is now free from Parabens and no longer contains an SPF. This means that this product is now also suitable for night time use. Skin is particularly sensitive to the sun when it is undergoing acne treatment so we recommend you apply additional sun protection in the morning. Try Eucerin Sun Gel Creme Oil Control Dry Touch SPF50+ depending on your levels of exposure.*Registered trademark of Symrise, Germany
Does the product contain sun protection factor?
No, so you can use it in the evenings. When skin is undergoing medical treatment for blemished skin it is particularly sensitive to the sun so, if your skin is going to be exposed for a considerable time, you should regularly apply a sun screen such as Eucerin Sun Gel Creme Oil Control Dry Touch SPF50+
I cover my acne with make-up. Am I making everything worse?
Thorough cleansing and moisturising will make little difference if skin is regularly contaminated by cosmetics that promote impurities. Be sure to use make-up that is suitable for your skin and don’t forget to remove it thoroughly in the evening. Eucerin DermoPurifyer Oil Control Cover Stick has been specially formulated to both conceal and helps to reduce blemishes. Your doctor or pharmacist will be able to advice you on cosmetic choices.
Are the Eucerin DermoPurifyer Oil Control care products suitable as a make-up base?
Yes. If skin is thoroughly moisturised then it will be easier to apply make-up evenly.
Is acne genetic?
A genetic predisposition certainly counts. If both parents had acne in their youth there is a greater likelihood that their children will also experience acne.
