Eucerin Aquaphor Wound Care Ointment

Expert skin care for damaged skin - clinically proven to accelerate skin regeneration

This water-free ointment generates the ideal environment to support the healing process of damaged or irritated

Eucerin Aquaphor Wound Care Ointment is clinically proven to accelerate skin regeneration to aid the healing of extremely dry, damaged or irritated skin.

This water-free, paraffin-based formulation helps the skin to heal faster by creating the ideal wound healing environment. It quickly generates a semi-permeable, protective barrier over the skin which maintains the natural rate of water vapour, thereby keeping the damaged skin moist to accelerate regeneration. This protective barrier also absorbs and holds the recovering skin’s natural wound healing exudates. The active ingredients Panthenol and Bisabolol are also both clinically proven to accelerate skin regeneration. It also contains Glycerin to moisturise and strengthen the skin barrier.

In addition to its effectiveness in aiding healing, it also conditions and soothes the skin, and has clinically proven efficacy in the treatment of extremely dry, chapped, cracked or irritated skin caused by a superficial dermatological treatment such as laser therapy, a chemical peel or dermabrasion. It is also recommended for skin care use in Xerosis, occupational dry skin. It is also gentle enough for use on babies, and is excellent for soothing nappy rash (diaper rash). It only has a minimal number of ingredients and is therefore well tolerated.

Eucerin Aquaphor Wound Care Ointment is well tolerated, gentle, non-acnegenic, non-comedogenic, odorless, and free of fragrances, colorants, alcohol and preservatives that could cause irritation or contact dermatitis.

Eucerin Aquaphor Wound Care Ointment Expert skin care for damaged skin - clinically proven to accelerate skin regeneration

When skin is broken or irritated, or extremely dry or cracked, aiding skin regeneration becomes paramount. In these situations, providing the correct conditions for healing is vital. Skin needs a healthy amount of hydration to heal, yet excess moisture can slow healing and prevent regeneration.

Skin regeneration occurs best under a semi-permeable, protective barrier which maintains a natural rate of evaporation. Eucerin Aquaphor products are clinically proven to support the regeneration of damaged skin.
