Eucerin pH5 Skin-Protection Shower Oil

A rich and replenishing daily body cleanser that protects skin’s natural defenses

Relieving dry, itchy skin begins in the shower with a unique body wash that does more than cleanse; it helps improve the condition of your skin.

pH5 Skin-Protection Shower Oil

Shower oil for dry, sensitive skin

Dry, sensitive skin is easily irritated by environmental triggers, making it even more sensitive. It requires more than gentle cleansing to become less sensitive. 

Eucerin pH5 Skin Protection Shower Oil has been specially developed with extra-mild surfactants suitable for cleansing dry, sensitive skin. The unique Eucerin pH Balance System gives the formula the optimal pH to protect skin’s natural defenses and preserve its resilience.

Rich in natural caring oils, it replenishes lipids, leaving skin feeling pampered and silky soft, and stops it from drying out even after frequent use. 

The Shower Oil is available in both lightly fragranced and unperfumed versions. It is suitable for use on children of three years and older.

Frequently asked questions

What is the active principle of the Eucerin pH5 products?

Eucerin pH5 cleansing and moisturizing products contain very mild, dermatologically tested ingredients ideal for sensitive skin and sensitive dry skin. All of these products have excellent skin compatibility and protect your skin against daily environmental stress. The pH5 Citrate Buffers contained in Eucerin pH5 products naturally stabilize the hydrolipid film of skin. Glycerin and Dexpanthenol protect from drying out and support the regeneration of the skin.

What happens when water gets into a bottle of Eucerin pH5 Shower Oil?

Many Eucerin products contain water-soluble or hydrophilic ingredients, as well as lipidic or hydrophobic ingredients. To enable these ingredients to mix with one another and to create a homogenous product, we add emulsifiers or ingredients with emulsifying properties. The composition of this mixture must be precisely balanced. If for example a large amount of water unintentionally gets into the bottle of Eucerin pH5 Shower Oil the homogeneity of the product can be compromised. The additional water can lead to a consistency change in the product. The liquid shower oil is replaced by a gel-like mass that sits on the bottom of the bottle. The watery and gel-like portions seem to separate and you can no longer mix just by shaking. The product will not perform optimally. We suggest keeping it away from the shower spray and please do not add water.

How can you tell if a product is safe for sensitive skin?

Eucerin Sensitive Skin products have been specially developed to combine excellent skin protection and regeneration with clinically proven skin tolerability. However, in general, if you’re trying out a new product, apply it repeatedly to skin at the flexure of the elbow. If it does not lead to redness, swelling or itching the product can be assumed to be compatible with your skin.

Talk to your dermatologist or pharmacist if you’re worried about any of your symptoms.

What are surfactants, and which ones does Eucerin use?

Surfactants are active cleansing agents, also called active surface or active interface substances. They are organic compounds that influence the molecular adhesion on the contact surfaces of various materials (like skin and dirt particles) by reducing the surface tension to ease the removal of dirt particles, for example.

Eucerin cleansing products contain mild surfactants that demonstrate excellent skin compatibility, documented in comprehensive clinical studies.

Eucerin pH5 for Sensitive Skin Restores skin’s natural defenses with pH5 Balance System

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.

Eucerin pH5 is a comprehensive range of skin care products that has been specially formulated to address the needs of dry, sensitive skin. The unique Eucerin pH5 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.

All products in the range – which includes body lotions, body creams and body cleansers – are clinically and dermatologically proven to be ideal for daily use on dry, sensitive and allergy-prone skin. They protect skin from drying out, support long-lasting moisturization and leave it looking and feeling soft and smooth.
