Intensive care cream for flare-ups of very dry skin

Eucerin OMEGA Acute Care Cream has been specially formulated to offer relief and intensive care for skin undergoing a flare-up of very dry skin. The formula has a unique active ingredient complex of soothing Licochalcone A, anti-bacterial Decandiol and anti-itching and cooling Methoxypropandiol (MPD). This complex, combined with a high concentration of Ceramidesstrengthens skin’s barrier, alleviates dryness and relieves itchiness at a sensory level, thereby reducing the need to scratch.

Fragrance-free, the cream for very dry & irritable skin can be applied as often as needed on affected areas and has been shown to support sleep and improve quality of life for those with very dry skin. Suitable for adults, children and babies from four weeks.

Clinical and dermatological studies

Very good care efficacy and skin tolerability proven on atopic skin.

Main findings

In a Product in Use (PiU) test, by a sample of 144 men and women, all aged 30+, with very dry skin. 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 very dry skin affected their quality of life. After four weeks of using the OMEGA 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.

Ingredients

How they work together

Eucerin OMEGA Acute Care Cream and Eucerin OMEGA Acute Calm Spray have been specially formulated with active ingredients that soothe itchy skin.

Eucerin OMEGA Acute Care 

Cream contains Menthoxypropandiol and Decanediol to calm and soothe skin during flare-ups of very dry & irritable skin:

  • An extract of menthol, Menthoxypropandiol activates natural cooling receptors (known as TRPM8) found in the nerve endings in skin. The resulting cooling sensation reduces feelings of itchiness.
  • Anti-bacterial Decanediol combats the Stapphylococcus Aureus bacteria associated with very dry & irritable skin.

The formula also contains the unique active ingredient complex used in the daily-use basic care products in the range:

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

The key actives in Eucerin Acute Calm

Spray are MenthoxypropandiolSymSitive* and Polidocanol:

  • As in the Acute Care Cream, the Menthoxypropandiol cools skin and works at a sensory level to reduce feelings of itchiness
  • SymSitive* calms skin, stops any stinging and reduces redness. It does this by blocking an itch-related receptor known as TRPV1 (transient receptor potential vanilloid 1) and calming the skin’s nervous system.
  • Polidocanol soothes skin by reducing the signals of itchiness in the cells of the epidermis (the outer layers of skin. It does this by inhibiting the release of TSLP (Thymic Storal Lymphoietin) an itch mediator created by the keratinocytes (a type of epidermal cell).

As well as being used to calm skin during a flare-up, the spray can also be used in the periods between flare-ups when skin is a bit itchy. The product should not be used on open wounds.
