Protects skin’s barrier from further dryness and itching

Content Parts/Title FAQ

Can I use Eucerin AtopiControl Bath and Shower Oil on my face?

Eucerin AtopiControl Bath and Shower Oil is a body cleanser. If you are looking for a facial cleaner for skin prone to Atopic Dermatitis we recommend you use Eucerin UltraSensitive Cleansing Lotion.

Will Eucerin AtopiControl Bath and Shower Oil make my skin feel greasy?

No. Atopic skin is extremely dry so it will help replenish your skin but will not leave it feeling oily or greasy.

Is Eucerin AtopiControl Bath and Shower Oil suitable for babies?

Yes, it is fine for babies of three months or older but use as a bath additive rather than applying directly to their skin.

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 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.

All our daily care products can also be used during a flare-up and should be applied after your medication and/or Eucerin AtopiControl Acute Care Cream.

Protect atopic skin from the sun

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 Sun Creme SPF30 or Eucerin Sun Creme SPF50+ for your face and try Eucerin Sun Lotion Extra Light SPF30 or Eucerin Sun Lotion Extra Light SPF50 for your body.

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

Eucerin AtoControl 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 AtoControl Acute Care Cream and Eucerin AtoControl 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.
