New Moisturizer Formulation Effective for Dermatitis

Waranya Boonchai, M.D., from Mahidol University in Bangkok, published a study in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology about the moisturizer formulation that works effective for facial dermatitis.

According to the study,  moisturizer containing 4-t-butylcyclohexanol (a sensitivity regulator) and licochalcone A (an anti-inflammatory agent from Glycyrrhiza inflata licorice plant) is used to compare with 0.02 percent triamcinolone acetonide (TA) , a wide used drug for treating facial dermatitis.

Both the moisturizer and TA showed a statistically significant improvement in skin hydration, transepidermal water loss, and patient-assessed visual analog scale following two and four weeks of treatment. The moisturizer showed better skin hydration than TA. 

In patients’ subjective evaluation, TA improved sensation sensitivity more rapidly.
