Eucerin AtopiControl Cream
Care cream for Atopic Dermatitis
"Atopic skin is dry, irritable and itchy. It can also be rough and chapped, especially in particular problem areas such as the elbow folds and knee cavities.
Eucerin AtopiControl Cream is a rich, daily-use body cream that gives those special target areas the care they need. It can also be used alongside Eucerin AtopiControl Acute Care Cream during a flare-up. The formula is enriched with soothing Licochalcone A and a high concentration of lipids (Omega-3, Omega-6 and Ceramides) to regenerate skin’s barrier and relieve itching.
The rich oil-in-water cream for Atopic Dermatitis hydrates, soothes and reduces roughness and, with regular use, skin condition noticeably improves.
Fragrance-free, Eucerin AtopiControl Cream is suitable for adults, children and babies from three months old."

How it works
The care products in the Eucerin AtopiControl range contain a unique active ingredient complex:
- Licochalcone: an extract of liquorice which soothes skin and reduces redness
- Ceramides: to strengthen skin’s barrier function
Atopic Dermatitis has two phases:
- The acute phase when skin flares up
- The period between flare-ups when skin is calmer and less reactive
In addition to these actives, acute-care-cream also contains Menthoxypropandiol and Decanediol to calm and soothe skin during a flare-up. A derivative of menthol, Menthoxypropandiol cools skin and works at a sensory level to reduce feelings of itchiness. Anti-bacterial Decanediol combats the Stapphylococcus aureus bacteria associated with Atopic Dermatitis.
You can find out more about how the range works in Behind the science of Eucerin AtopiControl.
Impaired skin barrier - Dry, irritable, itchy skin
Dry, irritable, itchy skin: An impaired skin barrier function leads to dryness.
Skin’s barrier is easily irritated and can become inflamed.
Effect of daily care products with Licohalcone A and Ceramides
Calmed and soothed skin: The skin barrier is strengthened. Skin becomes smooth again and is soothed. Itching is relieved.
What is the difference between Eucerin AtopiControl Cream and Eucerin AtopiControl Lotion?
The cream for Atopic Dermatitis has been specially formulated for use on problem areas such as the elbow folds and knee cavities. The lotion is better suited for use all over the body.
Is Eucerin AtopiControl Cream 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 treat and 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 Eczema?
Dermatitis and Eczema are the same thing: collective terms for inflammatory changes in the skin. As such, they include many different dermatological diseases. Atopic Eczema and Atopic Dermatitis are also the same thing.
