Research

METHODOLOGY

In a clinical-dermatological controlled study, 20 healthy male and female participants aged 18 and over applied Eczema Lotion onto the skin to determine its efficacy in reducing intensity of itching, swelling and redness induced by a histamine solution. This known irritant was applied on the skin at the start of the study (T0min), after which Eczema Lotion was applied. The skin's reaction was then assessed over 60 minutes: after 5min, 15 min, 30 min, 45 min and 60 min time points.

The reduction of itching was evaluated in a 5-point scale indicated in scores from 0 (no itching) to 4 (very severe itching) and the reduction of redness and swelling was measured in dimension in millimetre.       

RESULT

A gradual reduction in itching, redness and swelling was observed over the 60 minutes period and an average score of 0 (no itching) was observed at T45 min. Results hence showed that Eczema Lotion was effective in providing relief to the skin.
