Description

Oatmeal baths have been recommended for people with sensitive skin conditions for many years. The Aveeno range of products uses oatmeal and other natural ingredients to help moisturise dry and sensitive skin.

The Aveeno Body Wash is specially formulated for people with dry skin conditions. Its gentle cleansing action means it can replace soap, which often contains irritants that can aggravate damaged skin and skin conditions.

As well as being soap-free, this creamy body wash is only lightly fragranced, dye-free, paraben-free, and hypoallergenic, so it can generally be used by people with sensitive skin.

When used daily, the body wash will help to moisturise, soften, and protect dry skin. The naturally active oatmeal essence is rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. It acts as an emollient that reduces water loss from the upper layers of skin.

By restoring the oil layer, the wash helps to restore the skin’s natural protective ‘barrier’, reducing evaporation, and making the skin feel softer, smoother, and less tight.

The body wash has a non-greasy formula and is rapidly absorbed; it cleanses without drying the skin.

Research & Evidence

For people with Psoriasis

HelloSkin’s experts were unable to find any scientific data on the use of Aveeno body wash on psoriatic lesions.

However, the product contains colloidal oatmeal. Extracts of colloidal oatmeal lotion have shown anti-inflammatory benefits in lab models and in controlled animal experiments (1), (2), and in a human study shown to improve dry and itchy skin conditions (1).

Furthermore, one study also found that the colloidal oatmeal emollient compared with its vehicle had significant benefits on people with extremely dry skin (4).

This product also contains glycerin which effectively attracts and binds water, and thereby helps hydrating the upper skin layers. In dry skin conditions, including psoriasis, water loss from the upper skin layer is linked to a reduced skin barrier function, which may be worsening the disease symptoms.
