For very dry to atopic skin
Very dry to atopic skin is characterized by extreme dryness causing skin irritations and displaying a compromised skin protective barrier function. The main cause for these skin properties alterations is an imbalance of the lipids constituting the skin’s protective barrier.
Skin Protection | Repair
A compromised protective barrier will not preserve the natural hydration of the skin and it will not provide an effective skin protection. In such a situation, the measured water loss or TEWL rates will increase.
Exfoliation | Desquamation
The D-Squame® is a transparent adhesive used to sample the superficial layers of skin (squames). The collected samples are quantified by image analysis before and after product usage.
Replenishes skin lipids
The level of lipids present in the skin barrier can be assessed via sampling of the superficial layers of the epidermis with cyanoacrylate.
