Atopic dermatitis – more commonly referred to as atopic eczema – is a chronic condition characterised by the appearance of itchy, red patches on the skin at irregular intervals. Eucerin has created carefully formulated products for atopic dermatitis, which are designed to combat the side effects of the issue while also targeting the root cause of each individual flare-up.
In its range of atopic dermatitis treatments, Eucerin brings together ingredients that hydrate the skin, soothe itching and burning sensations and act against microbiological agents acting within the skin itself, in order to provide a comprehensive programme for managing break-outs and irritations in both the short- and long-term. Each atopic eczemacream, lotion and cleansing oil has been scientifically tested to ensure that it offers real and lasting relief from the uncomfortable and unpleasant consequences of atopic dermatitis, restoring the skin's natural verve, vigour and vivacity and maintaining its natural, healthy balance.
Dry skin is a common side effect of the condition, so atopic dermatitis moisturisers are a good way to nourish and hydrate ailing skin. Eucerin's AtoControl line for dry, irritated and atopic skin is rich in natural Omega fatty acids, which prevent the loss of moisture, and Licochalcone A, which restores and strengthens the natural dermal barriers that retain water. The latter also boasts powerful anti-inflammatory properties, combacting bacteria and viruses and reducing irritation, swelling and redness. When included in an oil or cream, this substance is easily absorbed into the body, where it can help to reduce the impact of the underlying irritation and stave off any infections that may affect atopic skin during an inflammation. The AtoControl range is also free from fragrances, colorants and parabens, so it can be used on all skin types, as well as younger children aged three months and up.
Atopic skin creams can also be used to rejuvenate dry, damaged skin, thanks to the presence of several invigorating oils. Grape Seed Oil acts as a strong antioxidant, purifying the skin and providing a nutrifying boost for irritations and outbreaks. Evening Primrose Oil supports the natural barriers, aiding in moisture retention and, in turn, nourishing the affected areas.
Specific atopic dermatitis treatments are also available for specific body areas, including products for atopic dermatitis on face and body.
These products for atopic dermatitis are also suitable for kids.
