Aquaphor ointment for very dry, cracked skin

Our skin works hard to protect our bodies, but sometimes it can become very dry, cracked and irritated as a result. It needs SOS care.

Eucerin Aquaphor Repairing Ointment gives dry to very dry, cracked and irritated skin the SOS care it needs. The water-free ointment forms a gentle, semi-occlusive, protective barrier over skin that supports the natural transfer of water vapor and oxygen to and from skin allowing skin to ‘breathe’ and strengthen its natural protective barrier. The ointment is enriched with Glycerin and Panthenol. Glycerin is an effective moisturizer that attracts water and helps to keep it in the skin. It works alongside Panthenol which helps to speed up regeneration and repair while also moisturizing skin.

Fragrance- and preservative-free, Eucerin Aquaphor Repairing Ointment has been clinically and dermatologically proven to repair very dry, cracked and irritated skin.

The soothing, transparent ointment is easy to apply and massages gently into problem areas of skin such as the knees and elbows, cracked knuckles and cuticles and cracked heels. With only a few ingredients, it is well tolerated by sensitive skin and is suitable for use on babies and children as well as on minor burns and on skin after superficial dermatological procedures such as laser treatments and chemical peels1. Skin is regenerated, protected and repaired.


  1. Eucerin Aquaphor Repairing Ointment should only be used on re-epithelialized skin (i.e. once new tissue has formed) and not on open, wet or bleeding wounds. Ask your Dermatologist for advice on how long you should wait after treatment before using the product.

Clinical and dermatological studies

Clinical and dermatological studies prove very good efficacy and tolerability even on extremely dry, cracked or irritated skin.Clinical and dermatological studies prove very good efficacy and tolerability even on extremely dry, cracked or irritated skin.

Main findings

Clinical and dermatological studies on Eucerin Aquaphor demonstrate its effectiveness (both overall and on specific parts of the body) and its skin tolerability (both overall and in terms of being non comedogenic).

Overall effectiveness

A 10-day trial in clinical conditions with a sample of 25 people aged between 18 and 50, showed that Eucerin Aquaphor Repairing Ointment significantly improved the time it took for skin to regenerate.

Effectiveness in treating dry, rough and cracked skin on the hands

In a further 7-day clinical study, a sample of 17 people applied Eucerin Aquaphor regularly to one hand while leaving the other hand as a control. The study measured the results clinically using a corneometer (a scientific instrument used to measure skin hydration) as well as collecting feedback from the respondents. The results demonstrated that:

  • the ointment delivers a statistically significant and noticeable improvement overnight to dry skin on the hands. 
  • with regular use for seven days skin condition continues to improve

Overall tolerability

A tolerability study with a sample of 202 people aged between 17 and 65 showed no allergic reactions on using the product and demonstrated the excellent tolerability of the product.


In a further test, a sample of 27 people aged between 19 and 55 used the product at least once a day for four weeks. The dermatologists who evaluated the results concluded that the ointment is non-comedogenic.

How it works

Mode of action for AquaPhor woundcare ointment
1 creates a protective barrier keeping skin´s own moisture to create an ideal healing environment 2 allows the flow of excess of fluid and oxygen

The active ingredients work in complementary ways to speed up the healing process. Paraffinum Liquidum and Cera Microcristallina form a semi-permeable, protective coat over the skin which maintains the natural rate of water vapour loss due to evaporation, which in turn keeps the damaged skin moist as the flow of moisture from the deeper skin layers to the upper layers is maintained. Panthenol penetrates into the skin and conditions it by aiding important processes that hydrate and regenerate the skin. At the same time, Bisabolol soothes the damaged skin. The inclusion of Glycerin moisturizes the skin and strengthens its natural barrier function.
