Product info

Eucerin AQUAporin ACTIVE with SPF 25 and UVA protection is an innovative face moisturiser that enhances skin’s own hydration system to leave skin supple, smooth and radiant. At the same time it protects skin from UVB and UVA-induced damage.

Skin needs water to work efficiently and effectively. Well hydrated skin is smooth and supple and looks radiant. When skin’s natural protection barrier is compromised, it loses moisture and becomes dehydrated. When dehydrated, skin looks dull, feels tight and is unable to keep external irritants at bay. It becomes sensitive as a result. Intense and long-lasting hydration is necessary to keep it looking and feeling its best.

Most moisturisers improve skin hydration by limiting the evaporation of water from the skin and/or by binding moisture in to the outer layer of the skin with humectants such as Glycerin. Skin also has its own hydration system – the Aquaporins. These microscopic channels transport water between skin cells and support skin hydration from within. Eucerin AQUAporin ACTIVE enhances their natural strength. The formula contains Gluco Glycerol, a state-of-the-art hydrating ingredient, which is proven to increase the number of Aquaporins in the skin. This means that, in addition to limiting evaporation and binding water into the outer layers of skin, Eucerin AQUAporin ACTIVE enhances skin’s own moisture supply.

The velvety texture of Eucerin AQUAporin ACTIVE with SPF 25 and UVA protection for all skin types provides intense, 24-hour hydration and is easily absorbed by the skin. It relieves tightness and leaves skin smooth and supple. SPF 25 and UVA protection also effectively prevent UV-induced skin damage. Eucerin AQUAporin ACTIVE is clinically and dermatologically proven to be compatible with sensitive skin and is fragrance and paraben free.

Clinical and dermatological studies

The product has been rigorously tested in both in-vitro and in-vivo studies that verify the efficacy of the range and its compatibility with sensitive skin.
