New Eucerin lotions feature enhanced gluco-glycerol formula

NORWALK, Conn. — Beiersdorf’s Eucerin skin care brand has expanded its Eucerin Repair line with two new moisturizing lotions.

Hitting shelves is the new Eucerin Professional Repair Lotion — extremely dry skin lotion, and the Eucerin Smoothing Repair — dry skin lotion.

The Eucerin Professional Repair Lotion — extremely dry skin lotion is a concentrated formula that is designed to improve moisture reserves, strengthen the skin’s barrier to lock in hydration and alleviate tight, flaky skin. It features 10% Urea, the highest percentage available without a prescription, to rehydrate dry, scaly skin, the manufacturer stated. The suggested retail price is $7.99.

The new Eucerin Smoothing Repair — dry skin lotion is designed to help skin retain moisture for more than 24 hours. It is recommended for those with xerosis. The suggested retail price is $11.99.

Both formulas feature gluco-glycerol to improve moisture supply to the stratum corneum and ceramide-3 to improve barrier function and reduce water loss. They are free of dyes and fragrance.
