Independent Research Studies Validate Moisturization Efficacy of Omeza Skin Protectant

Independent Research Studies Validate Moisturization Efficacy of Omeza Skin Protectant

In a randomized single blind study of 31 healthy volunteers conducted by Princeton Consumer Research, Omeza Skin Protectant was investigated in order to evaluate its moisturization efficacy.  Outcomes substantiate its claims of hydration, combating dehydration, and moisturization lasting up to 8 hours.

Measurements using the Corneometer® CM825 were taken on the subject’s lower legs in an area treated with the product, versus an untreated area and versus an area treated with glycerin.  At measurement points of 1, 3 and 8 hours, statistically significant hydration of the skin was measured on the test area.

* The range of variation of the values of skin hydration degree is between 0-130 arbitrary units (AU). In standard working conditions (T°= 20-22°C, humidity 40-60%), the variations of the values of skin hydration degree for the middle area of the front side of the forearm are the following: under 30 AU – very dry, between 30 and 45 AU – dry, 45 AU – sufficiently hydrated.

Trans-epidermal water loss study

The single blind study of 31 healthy subjects was conducted by Princeton Consumer Research to evaluate the relative degree of improvement of skin barrier function.  The claims, “emollient –“instant” and “long lasting””, “8-hr moisturization” and “kind to skin” were all substantiated by the study.

Test sites on the subjects’ lower leg included an untreated area and an area with application of the Omeza Skin Protectant. Trans-epidermal water loss on both areas was measured using the Tewameter® TM 300.  Assessments were recorded at baseline, 1, 3 and 8 hours.

* units for TEWL are stated as grams of water per square meter per hour (g*m-2*h-1) to express the rate of water evaporation from the skin. Measurements vary greatly from one anatomical site to another and are greatly affected by surrounding environmental conditions.

Measurable and visible benefits

The Omeza Skin Protectant has been demonstrated to be a powerful moisturizer which provides long-lasting protection against water loss.  Its effectiveness in replenishing and locking in moisture, without irritation or greasiness, makes it an ideal formula for damaged or vulnerable skin.
