Cleanser for dry, sensitive hands

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

Eucerin pH5 Hygiene Handwash Lotion is a daily-use cleanser for your hands, and it’s free from alkali soap. Extra-mild surfactants ensure that dry, sensitive skin is gently but effectively cleansed. The unique Eucerin pH Balance System gives the cleanser the optimal pH to protect skin’s natural defenses, to preserve its resilience and prevent it from drying out.

Eucerin pH5 Cleansing products protect skin´s own microbiome for a healthy skin. 98% of consumers confirm: Gentle cleansing for microbiome protection. Read more about the skin’s microbiome and visit our research background website.

It is also suitable for babies and children.

How To Use

How to use

Protects skin’s natural barrier with everyday use

  • Massage lotion into hands. It will form a foam to cleanse skin.
  • Protects the skin with daily use, rather than attacking its natural barrier.
  • For best results, use in combination with the pH5 hand cream


How Eucerin pH5 works

Healthy skin is our first and best defense against external irritants. But, when our hands’ 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.
