Dry, sensitive skin is easily irritated by environmental triggers, making it even more sensitive. It requires more than a gentle moisturizer to become less sensitive.
Eucerin pH5 Lotion is a gentle but effective body moisturizer has been specially formulated to make dry, sensitive body skin more resilient and less sensitive. The unique Eucerin pH Balance System contains pH5 Citrate Buffer to restore and support skin’s optimal pH. The body lotion also includes Dexpanthenol, an active ingredient known for its regenerative properties.
Use daily for long-lasting protection and soft, smooth skin. Eucerin pH5 Lotion is available in both a lightly fragranced and a fragrance-free version. It is suitable for use on children of three years and older.
Clinical and dermatological studies
In addition to other clinical and dermatological studies, a Product-in-Use (PiU study)1 was conducted with 168 women with sensitive skin aged between 35 and 65. They reported the following results after two weeks of use:
- 99%: gives skin a velvety-smooth feeling
- 99%: reduces skin sensitivity
- 98%: delivers intensive moisture
- 97%: delivers long-lasting moisturization
- 96%: makes skin more resilient

All Eucerin pH5 products have been specially formulated to combine excellent skin protection and regeneration with clinically-proven skin tolerability. Eucerin pH5 Body Lotion is suitable for frequent use on skin that is prone to type 1 allergies such as Hay Fever.
Before applying a new product all over your body, test it first by applying it repeatedly to the skin on the inside of your elbow. If there’s no reaction (e.g. redness, swelling or itching) then it’s safe to assume the product is compatible with your skin. If you have any concerns we recommend that you ask a pharmacist or dermatologist for their advice.
Why does skin need protection?
Our skin works hard to protect our bodies. It defends the body from external influences such as changes in climate, pollution, UV light, and chemicals. But these environmental forces can have an impact on skin and cause it to become stressed. When skin is stressed, it is less able to work as an efficient barrier. It loses moisture and becomes permeable from the outside. It’s important that we protect our skin and support the optimal pH balance for its natural barrier function. Skin is then able to carry on its important work of protecting us.
What are the active ingredients in the Eucerin pH5 range?
Eucerin pH5 cleansers and moisturizers contain mild ingredients that have been clinically and dermatologically tested and proven to restore skin’s optimal pH and protect its natural defenses, making it more resilient and less sensitive to environmental triggers.
These include pH5 Citrate Buffer to restore and support skin’s optimal pH, and Dexpanthenol, an active ingredient known for its regenerative properties. Dexpanthenol increases skin’s resilience to irritation, has wound healing properties, and leaves skin looking and feeling soft and smooth.
All products in the Eucerin pH5 range have excellent skin compatibility with dry, sensitive skin.
