How Aquaphor Works
Aquaphor is uniquely formulated to restore smooth, healhty skin. Unlike petroleum jelly, it creates a semi-occlusive barrier on the skin, which creates an ideal healing environment that enables the flow of water and oxygen. It also absorbs and holds up to three times its weight in the recovering skin's own natural wound exudates, keeping the wound moist to enhance healing.
Eucerin Frequently Asked Questions
Are your products tested on animals?
No, Eucerin does not test their products on animals. Product safety is important to them and all product clinical and product safety tests are conducted via comparable, high-technology testing methods that do not involve animals.
Can Eucerin body cremes and lotions also be used on the face?
Yes! Eucerin and Aquaphor products are non-comedogenic and non-irritating for sensitive skin, so they can safely be used on the face. However, since these products are designed primarily for use on the hands and body, you may prefer the feel of a moisturizer formulated specifically for facial use. Additionally, these hand & body products don't provide sun protection.
Eucerin Extra Protective Moisture Lotion SPF 30, Eucerin Q10 Anti-Wrinkle Creme and Lotion SPF 15 are all formulated for use on the face. If your skin is visibly red, Eucerin Redness Relief has a line of 4 products specifically developed for your facial skin's unique needs.
Can Eucerin and Aquaphor products be used on children?
Several Eucerin and Aquaphor products have been clinically tested and shown to be safe for children. Eucerin Original Creme and Lotion, Aquaphor Healing Ointment, and Aquaphor Gentle Wash have been clinically tested and shown to be safe on infants and children. Eucerin Calming Creme has been clinically tested and shown to be appropriate on children two years of age and older. If you have any questions about the suitability of any product for your child, please consult your pediatrician.
What is the shelf life for Eucerin and Aquaphor products? Can I use them after their expiration date has passed?
Shelf life varies by product, but most Eucerin and Aquaphor products are safe to use for two years after being produced. Although they will not be harmful after their expiration date has passed, products may begin to deteriorate and active ingredients may become less effective. For this reason, Eucerin recommends that you replace any unused product after the expiration date has passed, or if the product doesn't look or feel right.
I've heard that alcohol can dry out the skin. Why do Eucerin products contain alcohol if they are supposed to be moisturizing?
In chemistry, there is a group of substances with the collective name "alcohols." They have many different properties. Cetyl alcohol and lanolin alcohol are often used as emulsifying agents and actually have a moisturizing—not drying—effect on the skin. If you have any concerns regarding the suitability of a product for use on you or your child, please consult a dermatologist or pediatrician.
Can I get the ingredient list for a particular Eucerin or Aquaphor product?
The ingredients list for each Eucerin and Aquaphor product is displayed on its packaging. If you have sensitivity to a particular ingredient, or any other concern, we suggest that you consult your dermatologist.
Do your lotions with SPF protect against UVA and UVB rays?
Yes. All Eucerin products that contain sunscreens have been proven to protect against both UVA and UVB radiation.
I see that your products are fragrance-free. What's the difference between fragrance-free and unscented?
Fragrances are a leading cause of irritation for sensitive skin. A product labeled "unscented" may contain subtle masking fragrances, which are used to cover up medicinal or unpleasant product odors. "Fragrance-free" means that a product contains absolutely no fragrance. Most dermatologists recommend fragrance-free products.
High quality ingredients and clinically-proven formulas that help keep your skin healthy. Eucerin skin care is safe for sensitive skin and so effective that it's been trusted by dermatologists for years.
