Eucerin is a company that specializes in skin care and has an extensive range of products. The products are aimed at maintaining and promoting healthy skin. The company also supplies specialty products designed to combat certain skin conditions.

Skin Conditions

Eucerin cream is heavy. This means that the cream is ideal for very dry skin. The heaviness of the cream allows it to treat skin conditions such as atopic dermatitis, psoriasis and eczema.

Function

Eucerin Original moisturizing cream is ideal for using on the body, hands or feet. However, the company also sells creams that can be used specifically for the face.

Effects

According to Eucerin, the creams and lotions should cause the skin to look and feel better. If a person experiences redness, itching or swelling from use, the product may not be compatible with her skin.

Warning

In June 2009, ABC News reported that some moisturizers such as Vanicream, Dermavan, Dermabase and Eucerin were linked to skin cancer in mice. There is uncertainty about whether or not the discovery has any implication for humans.

Considerations

According to Pharmacy Health, Eucerin should be stored at room temperature, away from sunlight and moisture.
