Skin Relief Moisturizing Lotion to Improve Itchy, Extra-Dry Skin

A Randomized, Double-Blind Bilateral Controlled Study to Evaluate the Effectiveness of AVEENO® Skin Relief 24 Hour Moisturizing Lotion vs VEHICLE for the Relief of Itchy, Dry Skin (n=30)

Objective

  • To objectively compare the efficacy of AVEENO® Skin Relief 24 Hour Moisturizing Lotion against its own vehicle in a randomized, double-blind, bilateral controlled clinical study.

Study Design

  • Thirty (30) female subjects 18-70 with bilateral moderate to severe dryness and bilateral mild to moderate itch took part in the study.

  • Test sites on the lower legs of each of the subjects were graded for scaling, overall dryness and intensity, duration and frequency of itch at baseline (Visit 1, Day 0), after 21 days of treatment (Visit 2) and after a one-week regression without treatment (Visit 3, Day 28).
