Soothes itchy skin and strengthens skin barrier
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 and Atopic Dermatitis 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. Eucerin AtopiControl Balm is dermatologically tested for dry, atopic skin. It is safe to use from day one for the fragile skin of newborns and babies. Due to the sensitive yet effective formula, it is also ideal for children and adults, hence a balm for the whole family that preserves the skin barrier and actively soothes itchy skin.

The care products in the Eucerin AtopiControl range contain a unique active ingredient complex:
These ingredients work together to soothe skin during acute flare-ups as well as to deliver the daily, basic care that atopic skin needs to prolong the period between flare-ups.
Impaired skin barrier function leads to dryness, skin becomes irritable and sometimes even inflamed.
The skin barrier is strengthened. Itching is relieved and skin is calmed, soothed and smooth again.
You can find out more about how the range works in Behind the science of Eucerin AtopiControl.
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.
Yes, it is suitable for newborns as of day one.
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.
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.
