Eucerin AtopiControl Hand Cream

Suitable care for skin with Hand Eczema

Our hands are frequently in contact with water and cleaning products. Depending on the work we do, they may also be exposed to other chemicals. These factors can damage skin’s barrier and cause skin to dry out and become tight and rough and prone redness, scaling and itchiness.

Eucerin AtopiControl Hand Cream smooths and soothes skin. The quick-absorbing and non-greasy formula has a unique active ingredient complex of soothing Licochalcone A, anti-bacterial Decanediol and itch-relieving Methoxypropanediol (MPD). This complex, combined with a high concentration of Ceramides and Avena Sativa (Oatmeal), strengthens skin’s barrier, alleviates dryness and relieves the sensation of itchiness.

 The formula is fragrance -free. Though widely valued for its soothing properties, some people can be allergic to oatmeal.

With regular use, skin condition noticeably improves and skin feels smooth and supple even with frequent washing.

Frequently asked questions

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.

What causes Hand Eczema?

There are several different causes for Hand Eczema. In some people it occurs because of an underlying skin disease. Other people get Hand Eczema because of external factors such as frequent washing or the use of chemicals in the workplace. Hand Eczema can also be triggered by an allergic reaction to some substances.

Is the cream for eczema on hands suitable for children?

We have not tested Eucerin AtopiControl Hand Cream for its suitability for children. For this reason, we only recommend it for adult use.


  • You have Atopic Dermatitis or Hand Eczema: The hand cream soothes skin, reduces redness and strengthens skin’s natural barrier and can be used as often as required.

  • Cleanse skin with a mild, soap-free handwash
  • Use daily, or more often if needed

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

Eucerin AtopiControl is a range of dermo-cosmetic products that care 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 AtopiControl 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 AtopiControl Acute Care Cream to the effects of a 1 % hydrocortisone cream on the complexion of atopic skin. AtopiControl 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 AtopiControl 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).
