Balm for atopic skin

Atopic skin is irritable, dry and itchy. This itchiness induces scratching which gets in the way of a good night’s sleep and can have a negative impact on quality of life.

Eucerin AtoControl Balm is a daily-use body balm that has been specially formulated to soothe and intensely moisturise irritated and itchy skin. The light but nourishing oil-in-water balm is enriched with soothing Licochalcone A, Ceramides and Shea butter to strengthen skin’s barrier and relieve dryness and itching. It should also be used during a flare-up alongside Eucerin AtoControl Acute Care Creamand your usual medication.

The balm for Atopic Eczema and Atopic Dermatitis provides instant moisture to make skin soft and smooth and, with regular application, skin condition noticeably improves. Eucerin AtoControl Balm has been clinically and dermatologically proven to support sleep and improve quality of life for those with Atopic Dermatitis1.

The fragrance-free balm has a light, pleasant texture that absorbs quickly and is non-greasy and non-sticky. Eucerin AtoControl Balm is dermatologically tested for dry, atopic skin. It is safe to use from day one for the fragile skin of newborns and babies. Due to the sensitive yet effective formula, it is also ideal for children and adults, hence a balm for the whole family that preserves the skin barrier and actively soothes itchy skin.

Sun Protection

Sun protection

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. You only need to add this stage in the mornings. Try  or Eucerin Sun Creme SPF50+ for your face and try  or Eucerin Sun Lotion Extra Light SPF50 for your body.

How they work together

How they work together

The care products in the Eucerin AtoControl range contain a unique active ingredient complex:

  • Licochalcone A: an extract of liquorice which soothes skin and reduces redness
  • Ceramides: to strengthen skin’s barrier function

These ingredients work together to soothe skin during acute flare-ups as well as to deliver the daily, basic care that atopic skin needs to prolong the period between flare-ups.

Impaired skin barrier
Dry, irritable, often itchy skin

Impaired skin barrier function leads to dryness, skin becomes irritable and sometimes even inflamed.

Effect of daily care products with Licochalcone A and Ceramides

The skin barrier is strengthened. Itching is relieved and skin is calmed, soothed and smooth again.

Atopic Dermatitis has two phases


The acute phase: where skin flares-up.

The subacute phase: the period between flare-ups when skin is calmer (also known as the inactive or subclinical phase)

You can find out more about how the range works in Behind the science of Eucerin AtopiControl.
