Eucerin AtoControl Body Care Lotion 250ml

Basic, daily care for skin with Atopic Dermatitis
A rich body lotion for dry, irritated and itchy skin
Prolongs the period between flare-ups


With Omega oils and Licochalcone A to help alleviate the discomfort of Atopic Dermatitis

Soothes itchy skin and prolongs the period between flare-ups 

Product Info

Eucerin AtoControl Body Care Lotion uses a combination of concentrated Omega-6-fatty acids (Evening Primrose Oil and Grape Seed Oil) and soothing Licochalcone A to replenish skin and restore its natural barrier. Apply once or twice daily or as adjunctive care to Eucerin AtoControl Acute Care Cream during a flare-up.

With regular application itchiness and tightness are relieved and skin feels soft and noticeably smoothed. Eucerin AtoControl Body Care Lotion is clinically and dermatologically tested and proven to be compatible with atopic skin in adults, children and babies from 4 weeks.

The water-in-oil formula is fragrance-free, colourant-free and paraben-free to minimise the risk of skin irritation and allergies.

Clinical Studies

Clinical and dermatological studies show very good skin tolerability on patients with atopic skin.

Main findings

In a Product in Use (PiU) test, Eucerin AtoControl Body Care Lotion was used alongside Eucerin AtoControl Acute Care Cream by a sample of 144 men and women, 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 AtoControl 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 Creme SPF 50+ for your face and try Eucerin Sensitive Protect Sun Lotion Extra Light SPF 50+ for your body.

Kuinka tuote vaikuttaa

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

  • Licochalcone: 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.

The phases of Atopic Dermatitis
Atooppisen ihottuman eri vaiheet

In addition to these actives, acute-care-cream also contains Menthoxypropandiol and Decanediol to calm and soothe skin during a flare-up. A derivative of menthol, Menthoxypropandiol cools skin and works at a sensory level to reduce feelings of itchiness. Anti-bacterial Decanediol combats the Stapphylococcus aureus bacteria associated with Atopic Dermatitis.

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

Atooppisessa ihottumassa on kaksi vaihetta:

  1. Akuutti vaihe, jolloin oireet pahenevat
  2. Pahenemisvaiheiden väliset ajanjaksot, jolloin iho rauhoittuu ja oireita on vähemmän

Atooppisen ihon hoidossa hyödyllisiä ovat sellaiset ihonhoitotuotteet, jotka on kehitetty hoitamaan ihoa molemmissa vaiheissa.

FAQ (5)

  • Will Eucerin AtoControl products cure my Atopic Dermatitis?

    Applying Eucerin AtoControl Body Care Lotion as part of a daily skin care routine can alleviate some of the discomfort.

  • Is Eucerin AtoControl Lotion suitable for use on children?

    Yes, so long as your child is four weeks or older.

  • What is meant by the “vicious circle of atopic skin”?

    This describes the constant dry, itchy skin cycle experienced by people with Atopic Dermatitis; itching starts and consequently the  sufferer scratches. This causes the skin's barrier to disfunction, creating a humid environment for Staphylococcus aureus bacteria to grow.

  • Is Atopic Dermatitis the same as Eczema?

    No. Eczema is a general term for any inflammation of the skin. Atopic Dermatitis is a form of eczema, so is also known as Atopic Eczema, but there are several other skin diseases that are eczemas but not Atopic Dermatitis.

  • Mitä tarkoittaa pahenemisvaihe ja ajanjakso pahenemisvaiheiden välillä?

    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 care for atopic skin − such as those in the Eucerin AtoControl range − can help to extend the period between flare-ups and offer relief during acute flare-ups.

    It helps a lot with my scalp flare ups…
    Apart from the smell and thickness it works. At first I thought that the product was off but I see people are writing about it. It is a good product and it relieves itchy scalp and skin immediately. I bought Eucerin pH5 Emulsione Corpo Idratante in Italy and really like it. I want to try more products after these ones are done.
