DermoPurifyer Oil Control Scrub
Skin peel for blemish-prone skin
Eucerin DermoPurifyer Oil Control Scrub is an oil-free skin peel with Lactic Acid that removes impurities without drying out the skin. Suitable for face and body, the exfoliating action of natural micro particles works against dead skin cells − one of the key causes of blackheads and spots − and gently cleanses skin and removes make-up.
Pores are unclogged, impurities and blackheads are reduced and skin texture is visibly smooth and refined.
The product has been specially formulated for oily and blemish-prone skin which is not undergoing medication and can be used during pregnancy.

No. There are a lot of myths surrounding the causes and triggers of blemished skin and poor hygiene is one of them. Blemish-prone skin is not a sign of poor hygiene.

Blemished skin is associated with hormonal imbalances which can cause the sebaceous gland follicles to become more sensitive. For this reason, a contraceptive with an anti-androgen hormonal element can help. If you are in any doubt, consult your dermatologist or gynecologist.
Can I use the scrub while I’m undergoing medical treatment for blemished skin?
We do not recommend that you use the scrub while you are having medical treatment for blemished skin as medications such as Isotretinoin, Benzoyl Peroxide and Antibiotics all make your skin more sensitive. Use Eucerin DermoPurifyer Oil Control Cleansing Gel or Eucerin DermoPurifyer Oil Control Micellar Cleansing Water instead.
Does the product contain micro plastics?
Eucerin has made a significant step towards more environmentally-friendly products and does not use any microbeads made of polyethylene (PE). The cellulose particles that we use are a mixture of microcrystalline cellulose and silicon dioxide particles. These particles are gentle and skin-friendly and deliver the same results as less environmentally-friendly micro plastic alternatives.
