Frequently asked questions
Why do I need a special moisturiser for my face?
Your face is generally exposed to the causes of dry skin, like sunshine, wind and detergents, much more frequently than the rest of your body, and therefore needs frequent moisturisation to prevent dry skin symptoms, such as itching, redness, scaling and irritation. Eucerin Smoothing Face Creme 5% Urea contains key ingredients that lock in moisture to maintain long-lasting hydration. Learn more about dry facial skin.
Why should I use Eucerin Smoothing Face Creme 5% Urea instead of just using a body product, such as Eucerin Smoothing Cream 5% Urea, on my face?
Facial skin is different to body skin, and Smoothing Face Creme 5% Urea is specifically formulated for facial skin - it has a superior texture to Eucerin Smoothing Cream 5% Urea, making it more easily absorbed and better tolerated (when used on the face).

What is the difference between Eucerin Smoothing Face Creme 5% Urea and Eucerin Smoothing Night Creme 5% Urea?
The intensive night creme provides instant moisture and reduces skin tightness overnight.
Is Eucerin Smoothing Face Cream 5% Urea safe for children?
This product was not designed for children, and therefore has not been tested by children. If you want a product that is suitable for children, try Eucerin AtopiControl Body Care Lotion or Face Care Cream. Both of these products are suitable for babies.
