Eucerin AtopiControl Hand Cream

Suitable care for skin with Hand Eczema

A quick-absorbing and non-greasy hand cream that cares for dry, irritated and itchy atopic skin.

Daily care cream for hand eczema

Our hands are frequently in contact with water and cleaning products. Depending on the work we do, they may also be exposed to other chemicals. These factors can damage skin’s barrier and cause skin to dry out and become tight and rough and prone redness, scaling and itchiness.

Eucerin AtopiControl Hand Cream smooths and soothes skin. The quick-absorbing and non-greasy formula has a unique active ingredient complex of soothing Licochalcone A, anti-bacterial Decanediol and itch-relieving Methoxypropanediol (MPD). This complex, combined with a high concentration of Ceramides and Avena Sativa (Oatmeal), strengthens skin’s barrier, alleviates dryness and relieves the sensation of itchiness.

 The formula is fragrance -free. Though widely valued for its soothing properties, some people can be allergic to oatmeal.

With regular use, skin condition noticeably improves and skin feels smooth and supple even with frequent washing.

Frequently Asked Questions

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.

What causes Hand Eczema?

There are several different causes for Hand Eczema. In some people it occurs because of an underlying skin disease. Other people get Hand Eczema because of external factors such as frequent washing or the use of chemicals in the workplace. Hand Eczema can also be triggered by an allergic reaction to some substances.

Is the cream for eczema on hands suitable for children?

We have not tested Eucerin AtopiControl Hand Cream for its suitability for children. For this reason, we only recommend it for adult use.

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 quality of life: the constant dryness, redness and itching is uncomfortable to live with and can cause a lack of sleep and low self-confidence. 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 and less reactive

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.

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 body lotion and body, hand and face creams − reduce dryness, redness and itching and extend the period between flare-ups.

Eucerin AtopiControl Acute Care Cream has been specially formulated to relieve skin during a flare-up − it soothes and calms redness and itchiness and reduces the need to scratch.

All products are clinically and dermatologically proven to deliver results while being gentle on atopic skin. Research shows that Eucerin Acute Care Cream and Eucerin AtopiControl Lotion also promote a good night’s sleep and improve quality of life.1

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