Light gel cream for dry, sensitive skin

Moisturise and comfort your sensitive skin with Eucerin pH5 Light Gel Cream and experience a new skin well-being.

The very fast absorbing, non-greasy formula feels weightless on your skin as it melts in and leaves no residue.

The luxurious cream formula with the pH Balance System helps maintain optimal pH level, responsible for the skin’s natural protective barrier.

Enriched with Dexpanthenol, the non-sticky formula calms and naturally hydrates the skin, providing immediate comfort.

The skin is moisturised instantly and long-lastingly, and its pH level is stabilised. Your dry, sensitive skin regains its comfort, strength, and protection.

Healthy skin is the body’s first and best defense against external irritants. But, when skin is dry and sensitive, its barrier function is compromised and it is prone to further dryness and sensitivity.

The Eucerin pH5 range has been specially formulated to address the needs of dry, sensitive skin. The unique Eucerin pH Balance System restores skin’s optimal pH level and strengthens skin’s natural defenses, making it more resilient to environmental triggers and reducing sensitivity. Many of the products also contain Dexpanthenol which is known for its regenerative properties.

FAQ (4)

  • How can I be sure that your products are safe for my sensitive skin?

    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 moisturisers 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.

  • What is the difference between the pH5 Light Gel Cream and the pH5 Lotion?

    Both pH5 lotion and pH5 Light Gel Cream are formulated to moisturise, protect, and soothe sensitive skin. Eucerin pH5 Light Gel Cream has an ultra-light texture that is non-greasy, non-sticky, and is absorbed by the skin rapidly without leaving a residue.
