Hydration effects of moisturizing gel on normal skin: A pilot study
Moisturizers are topically applied agent which increasing moisture content in the skin to maintain skin integrity and youthful appearance. L-brand soothing gel (Tested gel) was developed for skin hydration. The objective of this study is to evaluate the benefits of daily usage of Tested gel amongst healthy young adults. This study also aimed to assess whether storage temperature may affect the efficacy of Tested gel. Changes in moisture content and texture index of the skin where the product was applied over a period of 8 days were assessed using non-invasive devices to measure the skin’s bioelectric impedance. Our results indicate that application of Tested gel produces a hydrating effect characterized by a significant increment in skin moisture and smoothness. There was no association found between storage temperature and efficacy of gel. The hydration effect of Tested gel diminishes gradually after application, but the hydration effect is cumulative upon daily usage for healthy young adults.
