Eucerin DermoPurifyer Scrub
Skin peel for acne-prone skin
Eucerin DermoPurifyer 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.
The product’s effectiveness was tested in a six-week study in Germany with a sample of 16 women and 4 men aged between 13 and 34 (average age 18.5 years).
The study confirmed:
- That Eucerin DERMOPURE Scrub has a very positive effect on general skin condition.
- That the scrub is very well tolerated by those with blemish- and acne-prone skin or those with mild acne comedonica.
- lightly fragranced

How often should I use Eucerin DermoPurifyer Scrub?
We recommend you use the scrub once a week, instead of the Cleansing Gel. However, due to its mild formula the product is suitable for daily use so you can use it more frequently.
Can I use Eucerin DermoPurifyer Scrub alongside the Eucerin DermoPurifyer Skin Renewal Treatment?
Yes. You can use the Scrub once a week while using Eucerin DermoPurifyer Skin Renewal Treatment.
Do I need to use Eucerin DermoPurifyer Cleansing Gel before the Scrub?
No. Use Eucerin DermoPurifyer Scrub instead of your usual cleanser but be sure to remove any eye make-up (try Eucerin DermoPurifyer Micellar Water) before using the scrub and be careful not to get the scrub in your eyes.
I’ve previously used the Eucerin DermoPurifyer Scrub. What is the difference between that and Eucerin DermoPurifyer Scrub?
We’ve changed the fragrance, the name and the packaging. The active ingredients in the formula remain the same.
Is acne caused by poor hygiene?
No. There are a lot of myths surrounding the causes and triggers of acne and poor hygiene is one of them. Blemish-prone skin is not a sign of poor hygiene. On the contrary, washing skin too frequently with aggressive cleansing products can irritate skin even more. We recommend that you cleanse your face twice a day using mild cleansers specially formulated for oily, blemish-prone skin and which clinically and dermatologically proven to remove excess sebum, sweat and dead skin cells without drying skin. It’s also important not to fiddle with your spots and to keep your hands away from your face.
Will my acne clear up by itself as I get older?
For many people, acne clears after puberty but there are also people over 30 who are still suffering from acne. If your skin condition doesn’t improve please consult a dermatologist.
Can the pill help to prevent/heal acne?
Acne 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 acne?
We do not recommend that you use the scrub while you are having medical treatment for acne as medications such as Isotretinoin, Benzoyl Peroxide and Antibiotics all make your skin more sensitive. Use Eucerin DermoPurifyer Cleansing Gel 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.
