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.

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 dry, red 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.
Can I use Eucerin AtopiControl Face Cream during a flare-up?
Yes. You can use Eucerin AtopiControl Face Cream daily − during flare-ups of Atopic Dermatitis as well as in the period between flare-ups. During acute, flare-up periods we also recommend that you use any medication recommended by your doctor and/or Eucerin AtopiControl Acute Care Cream to soothe your skin and reduce irritation. Eucerin AtopiControl Acute Care Cream is not a medical product, or intended to replace one, but is suitable for use alongside your medical treatment to help calm your skin. Apply your topical medical product first, followed by Eucerin AtopiControl Acute Care Cream. You can then use Eucerin AtopiControl Acute Care Cream for extra moisturisation.
