Care of the Dry Skin With Physiogel AI LotionÂ® (W0156)
Dry skin is a physiological condition and is characterized in contrast to greasy skin by roughness, desquamation and lack of brightness of the skin surface. Subjectively, feelings of tension, burning and itching can occur. Dry skin needs special care due to its structural and functional characteristics.We monitor an application test the Dermatocosmetics Oilatum Physiogel AI Lotion and Physiogel Lotion. This is to be accomplished with patients having dry skin. The influence on the roughness of skin, desquamation, feeling of tingle, burning and itching should be documented. If sleep quality is disturbed by tingle or itch, this will be monitored, too.
The included patients use the lotion twice daily for a two-week period. If not sufficient it can be continued up to a four-weeks period. Additionally, the patient receives a documentation sheets to note several parameters. In a sensory assessment, product specific parameter such as spreadability, permeability, lubricating, smell of lotion and cosmetic acceptance during the treatment will be assessed (at the beginning, after 2 weeks, after 4 weeks, 2 weeks after stopping treatment). After four weeks the skin care measurement will be terminated and the patient can continue with a treatment of his choice. A monitoring of at least 50 patients per preparation is intended.
