Product info

Intensive care cream for flare-ups of Atopic Dermatitis

Atopic skin is dry, irritable and itchy. This itchiness induces scratching which triggers the itch-scratch cycle. Symptoms worsen and can get in the way of a good night’s sleep and have a negative impact on quality of life.

Eucerin AtopiControl Acute Care Cream has been specially formulated to offer relief and intensive care for skin undergoing a flare-up
of Atopic Dermatitis. The formula has a unique active ingredient complex of soothing Licochalcone A, anti-bacterial Decanediol and anti-itching and cooling Methoxypropandiol (MPD). This complex, combined with a high concentration of Ceramides, strengthens skin’s barrier, alleviates dryness and relieves itchiness at a sensory level, thereby reducing the need to scratch.

Fragrance-free, the cream for Atopic Dermatitis flare-ups can be applied as often as needed on affected areas and has been shown to support sleep and improve quality of life for those with Atopic Dermatitis. Suitable for adults, children and babies over three months.

Clinical and dermatological studies

Very good care efficacy and skin tolerability proven on atopic skin

Main findings

In a Product in Use (PiU) test, Eucerin AtopiControl Acute Care Cream was used alongside Eucerin AtoControl Body Care Lotion by a sample of 144 men and women, all aged 30+, with mild and moderate Atopic Dermatitis. After four weeks of daily use they reported the following results:

Improves skin condition

97% agreed with the statement that the products “Improve skin condition”

Supports better sleep

  •  96% agreed that, with the products, “I don’t need to scratch a lot during the night”
  • 94% agreed that, with the products, they weren’t “waking up early due to skin problems”
  • 93% agreed that, during the trial period, they woke up “less often during the night”
  • 89% agreed that the products help them to “wake up well-rested”
  • 88% agreed that the products helped them to have a “good energy level during the day”

Improves quality of life

  •  Before the trial, 92% of the sample agreed that Atopic Dermatitis affected their quality of life. After four weeks of using the AtopiControl products, only 38% of the sample agreed that the disease affected their quality of life. From this we can infer that, as a result of using the products, 54% of the sample felt there was an improvement in their quality of life.

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. Try Eucerin Sensitive Protect Sun Cream SPF30 or Eucerin Sensitive Protect Sun Cream SPF50+ for your face and try Eucerin Sensitive Protect Sun Lotion Extra Light SPF30 or Eucerin Sensitive Protect Sun Lotion Extra Light SPF50+ for your body.

    Amazing relief
    I have eczema on the bottoms of my feet and on my neck. So obviously it drives me crazy shoes and shirt collars causing all kinds of ridiculous itching and discomfort. I tried this product and I don’t know what magic they packed it but the relief was divine. It by no means was a cure all, or 100% effective but I would definitely recommend it to anyone in need of irration relief. I didn’t really notice any smell and there wasn’t a load of residue left on my hands after applying. I didn’t get any staining of my clothes or weird sticky patches which I have had with other products. Going into work with your trousers stuck to your knees is not a flattering look!!

    Good for itchy skin
    I have sensitive, dry skin and found Eucerin AtoControl Acute Care Cream soothing and easy to apply. Sometimes, particularly after a shower, my lower legs become extremely itchy. On one such occasion I applied this cream and it greatly improved the problem quickly. I also used it on my son, who has dry skin and he thought his skin felt better.

    Eucerin AtoControl
    The cream is easy to apply, although sometimes I found I would squeeze out more than I needed. It feels nice and cooling on the skin, and has a slight smell which is nice and fades quickly. I found the cream moisturised the areas I used it on and made my skin feel less dry, and reduced the redness I sometimes experience in the dry areas. I don't get itchiness associated with my dryness so I don't know how the product helps with itchiness, but it helped with my symptoms. The product works well for instant relief but I feel like my skin has not dramatically improved in the long term.
