This ointment is nearly identical to the original Aquaphor Healing Ointment, and it’s just as basic and effective at protecting very dry skin from moisture loss and reducing dryness. Although the formula is dated, it’s exceptionally gentle and doesn’t contain fragrance or coloring agents. This deserves our highest rating due to its value for compromised skin and as an aid for sensitive skin, including for infants struggling with eczema or dry skin. A larger size is available in a jar, and is also recommended, although the tube packaging is easier to use and more sanitary.

Mild, multi-purpose Aquaphor Healing Ointment provides the extra gentle care your baby's delicate skin needs.

Active: Petrolatum Other: Mineral Oil, Ceresin, Lanolin Alcohol, Panthenol, Glycerin, Bisabolol

This drugstore staple line claims to be dermatologist-preferred skin care, but any dermatologist who recommends this line in its entirety without reservation needs a crash course in what skin really needs to be protected and look its best.

There are some basic products that a dermatologist would want to consider, but Eucerin falls short in products to address acne. Further, their latest facial skincare products aren't keeping pace with what industry frontrunners are doing in an effort to create elegant, effective products. For example, serums from Olay, Neutrogena, and Aveeno have much more interesting formulations, while moisturizers from many other drugstore lines (including Nivea, which is owned by Eucerin parent company Beiersdorf) include a greater complement of antioxidants and ingredients that mimic the structure and function of healthy skin. Eucerin is making some strides here, though, which is an encouraging sign.

A major pro for this line is that all of the products are fragrance-free. Although that's helpful for all skin types, it certainly isn't compelling enough for dermatologists to green-light this line without cautions about which products to avoid.

    Recommended by our Pediatrician
    • This product was recommended by our pediatrician when our older daughter was an infant and had some patchy red skin on her face due to teething drool. It cleaned up the patches in a few days. We've used it multiple times for mild skin irritations with both her, and our younger daughter. Each time it's worked very well. Occasionally when my husband has run out of prescription eczema cream he uses this until he gets a new prescription.

    I love it
    • I have been using Eucerin's "Aquaphor Baby Healing Ointment" for about a week now and I LOVE IT. I get SUPERDRY hands as soon as it gets cold and this product keeps my hands moist and soft for HOURS. Everything is perfect about it - the effectiveness, the texture, the packaging, the price, etc. And, I discovered that it works great as a lipbalm too. Woho, I found my new go-to!
