Eucerin AtopiControl Balm

A daily use body balm with Licochalcone A, Ceramides and Shea butter to care for atopic skin

Soothes itchy skin and strengthens skin barrier

Balm for atopic skin

Atopic skin is irritable, dry and itchy. This itchiness induces scratching which gets in the way of a good night’s sleep and can have a negative impact on quality of life.

Eucerin AtopiControl Balm is a daily-use body balm that has been specially formulated to soothe and intensely moisturize irritated and itchy skin. The light but nourishing oil-in-water balm is enriched with soothing Licochalcone A, Ceramides and Shea butter to strengthen skin’s barrier and relieve dryness and itching. It should also be used during a flare-up alongside Eucerin AtopiControl Acute Care Cream, Eucerin Anti-Itch-Spray and your usual medication.

The balm for atopic eczema provides instant moisture to make skin soft and smooth and, with regular application, skin condition noticeably improves. Eucerin AtopiControl Balm has been clinically and dermatologically proven to support sleep and improve quality of life for those with Atopic Dermatitis1.

The fragrance-free balm has a light, pleasant texture that absorbs quickly and is non-greasy and non-sticky. It is suitable for adults, children and babies over three months.

Frequently asked questions

What is the difference between Eucerin AtopiControl Balm, Eucerin AtopiControl Lotion and Eucerin AtopiControl Cream?

The balm and the lotion are both ideal for use on atopic skin all over the body. They are both effective at soothing skin and supporting its natural barrier function. The choice of which product to use comes down to textural preference: the balm is an oil-in-water formulation and is lighter; the water-in-oil lotion is richer. Some people choose to use the lotion during the winter and the balm during the summer. The cream has a thicker texture and has been specially formulated for use on problem areas such as the elbows and knees.

Is Eucerin AtopiControl Balm suitable for use on children?

Yes, so long as your child is three months or older.

What do you mean by a ‘flare-up’ and ‘the period between flare-ups’?

Broadly speaking, Atopic Dermatitis has two different phases. A ‘flare-up’ is one of the names used to describe the acute, active phase when skin is at its most irritable. It can feel intensely itchy, you may experience a burning sensation and skin can look red, dry and flaky. Between these acute, flare-up phases are periods of time when your skin is relatively calm and less irritated. This period is also known as the non-acute, non-active or interval phase. The length of each phase varies greatly depending on the individual, but products specially formulated to care for atopic skin − such as those in the Eucerin AtopiControl range − can help to extend the period between flare-ups and offer relief during acute flare-ups.

Is Atopic Dermatitis the same as Atopic Eczema?

Atopic Dermatitis and Atopic Eczema are collective terms for inflammatory changes to the skin and they include many different dermatological diseases. Atopic Dermatitis and Atopic Eczema are used to describe the same chronic inflammatory condition.

Care products for eczema

Daily care for the periods between flare-ups

Apply the appropriate daily care product:

Additional care for during a flare-up

Apply Eucerin AtopiControl Acute Care Cream to the relevant affected area to relieve itching and improve skin condition. It is an ideal adjunct to medical treatment for Atopic Dermatitis. If you are also using a topical medical product apply that treatment before Eucerin AtopiControl Acute Care Cream.

All our daily care products can also be used during a flare-up and should be applied after your medication and/or Eucerin AtopiControl Acute Care Cream.

Sun protection is an important part of skincare for Atopic Dermatitis

Immediate itch relief

Eucerin AtopiControl Anti-Itch-Spray instantly cools skin, reducing itching within 60s. Use it to provide immediate and long-lasting relief whenever your skin is itchy – either during a flare-up of Atopic Dermatitis or in the periods between. As it’s not a care product, we recommend you use it in combination with other products in the AtopiControl range. Eucerin AtopiControl Anti-Itch-Spray is also effective on skin that is itchy as a result of Xerosis, Psoriasis and Diabetes.

Sun protection

Atopic skin is particularly sensitive to UVA and UVB rays. For this reason, if your skin is going to be exposed to sunlight, we recommend that you apply a sun protection product after your care product. You only need to add this stage in the mornings. Try Eucerin Sun Creme SPF30 or Eucerin Sun Creme SPF50+ for your face and try Eucerin Sun Lotion Extra Light SPF30 or Eucerin Sun Lotion Extra Light SPF50 for your body.

Eucerin AtopiControl Phase-adapted care for Atopic Dermatitis

Atopic Dermatitis − also known as Atopic Eczema − is a skin disease that makes skin dry, red, irritable and itchy. This itchiness induces scratching which makes symptoms worse and can lead to skin infection. Atopic Dermatitis can also impact on sleep and quality of life. When babies and children suffer their parents can feel helpless and guilty.

The disease has two distinct phases:

  1. An acute phase when skin flares up
  2. The period between flare-ups when skin is calmer

Because there is no known cure for Atopic Dermatitis, the primary aim when caring for atopic skin on a daily basis is to prolong the non-acute phase. During a flare-up, the focus is on soothing and calming skin as quickly as possible. Eucerin AtopiControl offers the phase-adapted skincare that atopic skin needs.

Most products in the range contains a unique active ingredient complex of soothing Licochalcone A and barrier-strengthening Ceramides. When used daily, the basic care products − a bath and shower oil, a balm, a lotion, a hand cream, a face cream and an all-purpose cream − reduce dryness, redness and itching.

Eucerin AtopiControl Acute Care Cream has been specially formulated to relieve skin during a flare-up.  It offers intensive care: reducing itching, moisturizing skin and strengthening its natural barrier. Eucerin AtopiControl Anti-Itch-Spray instantly cools skin, reduces itching within 60s and offers relief for up to six hours1. It can be used when skin is itchy either between flare-ups or during the acute phase of Atopic Dermatitis. It is also effective on skin that is itchy as a result of Xerosis, Psoriasis and Diabetes.

All products are clinically and dermatologically proven to deliver results while being gentle on atopic skin. Research shows that Eucerin AtopiControl Acute Care Cream2, Eucerin AtopiControl Lotion2 and Eucerin AtopiControl Balm3 also promote a good night’s sleep and improve quality of life.

Fragrance-free, the range is suitable for adults, children and babies over three months4.
