Principles of Moisturizer Product Design

J Drugs Dermatol 2019 01;18(1s):s89-95

Moisturizers provide significant benefit in dermatology – as adjuvant therapy for many clinical conditions, as a key player in anti-aging regimens, and as a core component in maintaining healthy skin barrier function. Although they have been a mainstay for decades, lotions and creams are no longer formulated with a one-size-fits-all approach, where thickness was the primary cue for efficacy. In fact, moisturizer design today has become an art as well as a science. Read More

Moisturizers versus Current and Next-Generation Barrier Repair Therapy for the Management of Atopic Dermatitis.

Skin Pharmacol Physiol 2019 18;32(1):1-7. Epub 2018 Oct 18.

We compare here the principal characteristics of over-the-counter moisturizers with physiologic lipid-based barrier repair therapy. Moisturizers are standard ancillary therapy for anti-inflammatory skin disorders, like atopic dermatitis (AD), and can attenuate the emergence of AD, the initial step in the "atopic march." But not all moisturizers are beneficial; some can make skin function worse, and can even induce inflammation, possibly accounting for the frequent occurrence of "sensitive skin" in women. Read More

Sweat is a most efficient natural moisturizer providing protective immunity at points of allergen entry.

Allergol Int 2018 Oct 1;67(4):442-447. Epub 2018 Sep 1.

Department of Dermatology, Kawasaki Medical School, Kurashiki, Japan; Dermatology, Kawasaki Hospital, Okayama, Japan.

Although there is a growing acceptance that sweat could play a detrimental role in various allergic skin diseases, the possibility that sweat is also involved in maintenance of skin hydration and skin-specific immune responses has not been acknowledged. We initially describe physiological role of sweat in both maintaining skin hydration and thermoregulation. The purpose of this article is to provide the reader with objective evidence that sweating is intimately linked to vital stratum corneum barrier function and usefulness of application of moisturizers in clinical care of allergic skin diseases.

In Vivo Determination of Moisturizers Efficacy on Human Skin Hydration by Confocal Raman Spectroscopy.

AAPS PharmSciTech 2018 Oct 22;19(7):3177-3186. Epub 2018 Aug 22.

Biomedical Engineering Innovation Center, Biomedical Vibrational Spectroscopy Group, Universidade Brasil-UNBr, Rua Carolina Fonseca, 235-08230-030, Itaquera, Sao Paulo, Brazil.

This research work deals with in vivo testing of the efficacy of commercial moisturizer products on the hydration of human skin, as there are various in vitro and ex vivo studies questioning their activity. Confocal Raman spectroscopy was used for this purpose of assessing the efficacy of moisturizers on skin hydration mainly owing to its simple, non-invasive, non-destructive, timesaving, and cost-effective nature. Water content and natural moisturizing factor (NMF) of stratum corneum were analyzed and compared using this method at high wavenumber (2500-4000 cm) and fingerprint (400-1800 cm) spectral regions, respectively, as these two parameters are correlated to skin hydration.

Gabapentin versus dexchlorpheniramine as treatment for uremic pruritus: a randomised controlled trial.

Eur J Dermatol 2018 Aug;28(4):488-495

Department of Dermatology and Radiotherapy, Botucatu Medical School, São Paulo State University (UNESP).

Background: Uremic pruritus is a common symptom in chronic renal failure patients with undefined pathophysiology. Initial treatment involves topical therapy mainly in the form of moisturizers, however, in many cases, this is not sufficient to relieve itching. Systemic adjuvant therapy is therefore necessary, which commonly includes oral antihistamines, with limited success. Read More

Duration of topical therapy in the maintenance of atopic dermatitis remission in paediatric age.

Minerva Pediatr 2018 Jul 2. Epub 2018 Jul 2.

Department of Surgical Sciences, Dentistry, Gynecology and Pediatrics, University of Verona, Verona, Italy.

Background: Topical Corticosteroids (TCS) are the first-choice treatment for atopic dermatitis (AD) flares. In literature there are clear advices about the potency, dosage and frequency of application of TCS, but there are no shared indications about duration of the treatment during a flare. The aim of the study is to demonstrate if the use of a steroid cream for less than or 5 days , could be equal or more effective than the application for more than 5 days during a flare episode, in keeping a remission state of DA.

Primary role of barrier dysfunction in the pathogenesis of atopic dermatitis.

Authors:
Peter M Elias

Exp Dermatol 2018 08;27(8):847-851

Department of Dermatology, University of California San Francisco, San Francisco, CA, USA.

Based upon the efficacy of recently developed biologics, the pathogenesis of atopic dermatitis (AD) is being attributed once again to the prominent inflammation that occurs in this disorder. Yet, molecular genetics has clearly shown that the aetiology of AD can be attributed to mutations in stratum corneum structural proteins that impact epidermal barrier function, while inflammation instead emerges as a downstream consequence of a sustained, barrier-driven cytokine cascade. Although several different mutations that compromise barrier function are associated with AD, all of these mutations compromise either the contents or secretion of epidermal lamellar bodies.
