Clinical Trial Summary

This research is being done to evaluate the role of a regular skin care regimen comprising of a mild soap and moisturizer in improving dry skin and overall skin health. In this study, the investigators hope to learn the importance of regular skin care regimen in improving dry skin and overall skin health.


Clinical Trial Description

Dry skin is a common phenomenon and can dramatically decrease a person's quality of life as well as contribute to a wide variety of skin diseases. Skin care products hydrate the skin and breaks the dry skin cycle. While there is extensive evidence of benefits of using mild cleansers and moisturizers, much of the previous studies are limited to the effects of single cleanser or moisturizer.

In this study, the investigators are going to enroll up to 100 people over the age of 18 with dry, itchy skin and they will be split into 2 groups. Participants will be randomly assigned to skin care regimen group (approximately 75% of total enrolled) and control group (approximately 25% of total enrolled). All evaluation include clinical assessments, subject questionnaires and photography will be conducted similarly in both groups.

Analysis will include paired and unpaired t-tests with two-tailed p-values. Values obtained at baseline, in middle of the study and after completing the study will be compared. The difference of measure values will be compared between application group and control group.

The moisturizing lotion and wash are generally very well tolerated.Rarely, they can induce a burning sensation, dryness, skin irritation, erythema, stinging, sensitization, and dermatitis. Risk events, problems, and deviations will be reported by the PI directly to the Institutional Review Boards.

The investigators hope to learn the importance of regular skin care regimen in improving dry skin and overall skin health. ;
