Eucerin AtoControl Face Care Cream

With 12% Omega oils and Licochalcone A to calm and nourish atopic skin

Fragrance- and paraben-free daily care cream for everyday (non-flared) facial Atopic Dermatitis.

Eucerin AtoControl Face Care Cream is a light, easily-absorbed daily-use care cream, for inactive ("interval") phases.

When flare-ups do occur, Eucerin AtoControl Face Care Cream should be used as adjunctive cosmetic care to Eucerin AtoControl Acute Care Cream.

Containing 12% Omega-6-fatty acids to calm and nourish dry, chapped skin, and the anti-inflammatory and anti-irritant Licochalcone A, Eucerin AtoControl Face Care Cream hydrates, soothes and reduces roughness while relieving itchy and tight skin. Skin feels soft and noticeably smoothed. It has been clinically proven to be compatible with atopic skin and can be used on children and babies from 3 months old.

As with all products in the Eucerin AtoControl range, no parabens, fragrances or colourants have been added. These omissions are to minimise the risk of skin irritation and allergies.

Clinical Studies

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



  • After cleansing, apply Eucerin AtoControl Face Care Cream carefully in the morning and evening on to your face and neck.

Frequently asked questions

Can I apply make-up on top of Eucerin AtoControl Face Care Cream?

Yes, it is fine to wear make up. Just check the ingredients to make sure it doesn’t include any of your known triggers.

Is Eucerin AtoControl Face Care Cream suitable for use on children?

Yes, so long as your child is three months or older.

Will Eucerin AtoControl products cure my Atopic Dermatitis?

There is no cure as such for this disease but applying AtoControl Care Cream as part of a daily skin care routine can alleviate some of the discomfort.

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

This describes the constant dry, itchy skin cycle experienced by people with Atopic Dermatitis. Irritation begins so the sufferer scratches. The scratching causes inflammation which leads to skin dryness which causes barrier dysfunction. This, in turn, provides a humid growth environment for Staphylococcus aureus bacteria to colonise, causing irritation and further scratching. And so the vicious circle continues.

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.

Eucerin AtoControl Dermo-cosmetic skin care for dry and irritable skin

Eucerin AtoControl is a range of dermo cosmetic products that care for for dry and irritable skin and also atopic skin during inactive phases and when flare-ups occur. Each has been clinically and dermatologically proven to reduce dryness, scaling and tension while relieving itching and all are proven to be compatible with atopic skin.

The Basic Care lotions and creams contain a combination of Omega-6-fatty acids and Licochalcone A to replenish skin, restoring its natural barrier and making it more resilient. As well as hydrating skin intensively, these products reduce the roughness, itch and tightness associated with atopic skin.

The Active Care range includes Eucerin's new AtoControl Acute Care Cream. Its skin caring properties significantly improve the skin's appearance during flare-up phases and help reduce the use of hydrocortisone during flare-ups. A clinical study shows a comparable cosmetic effect of the skin caring properties of Eucerin AtoControl Acute Care Cream to the effects of a 1 % hydrocortisone cream on the complexion of atopic skin. AtoControl Acute Care Cream is not a pharmaceutical product and is not meant to replace one. The other product in the Active Care range is Eucerin AtoControl Anti-itch Care Spray which, as its name suggests, gives instant relief to itchy skin.

No fragrances, colourants or parabens have been used in this range and products are suitable for children and babies over the age of 3 months (or 3 years for Eucerin AtopiControl Anti-Itch Care Spray).
