Bioderma Atoderm Crème de douche is a protective cleanser designed for use on dry to very dry, sensitive skin.
Many of the standard cleansers, shower gels, and soaps contain harsh chemicals that drain moisture and nutrients from the skin. For people with dry to very dry or sensitive skin, this can worsen their condition.
Bioderma Atoderm shower cream has a gentle action that helps moisturise the skin and prevent dryness. It is hypoallergenic and contains no parabens, soap, or colouring. Its purifying agents help to control the proliferation of micro-organisms, which can irritate dry skin.
The oils contained in the cream not only cleanse and moisturise; they also help to replenish the hydrolipidic film, which prevents excessive moisture loss from the skin. This natural ‘barrier’ is often damaged in people with very dry skin, so helping to restore it is one of the keys to providing lasting protection of the skin. With regular use, the skin will feel smoother, softer, and suppler after each shower.
The shower cream can be used daily on the whole body and face, and its creamy texture works gently enough for children and babies to use.
The ingredients in Bioderma Atoderm Crème de douche are:
Bioderma Atoderm Crème de douche should be used daily, once or twice a day. Use in the bath or shower, applying to damp skin on the face, hands, or body. Massage into a lather before rinsing thoroughly. Finally, pat dry with a soft towel.
Bioderma Atoderm Crème de douche can be used by children but should be kept out of their sight and reach. It is for external use. Take care when cleansing around the eyes.
The oil content in this shower cream may make tiles or the bathtub more slippery. Take extra care when entering or exiting the bath or shower and clean away residue after use.
If you are allergic to any of the ingredients in this shower cream, find an alternative product. In the event of an adverse skin reaction, stop use and seek medical advice.
Bioderma Atoderm Crème de douche has no known side effects. No interactions with other medicines have been identified to date.
HelloSkin’s experts did not find clinical data on the use of Bioderma Atoderm Créme de douche in people with psoriasis. However, the product contains glycerin. Glycerin is found naturally in the skin where it helps attract and retain water from the deeper skin layers, thereby helping hydrating and moisturising the skin (1).
In dry skin conditions, psoriasis included, water evaporation is increased compared with normal skin (2). Furthermore, water loss from the upper skin layer is linked to a reduced skin barrier function, which may be worsening the disease symptoms (3).
