For people with Psoriasis
Aveeno Lotion contains colloidal oatmeal. Extracts of colloidal oatmeal have demonstrated anti-inflammatory benefits in lab models and in controlled animal experiments (1) (2). A human study has shown that the use of colloidal oatmeal lotion on dry and itchy skin resulted in noticeable improvements of both skin conditions (1).
The experts at HelloSkin were not able to find clinical data on the benefits of Aveeno Lotion on psoriatic lesions.
For people with Eczema
In a study with women suffering from mild-to-moderate itch and moderate-to-severe skin dryness, colloidal oatmeal lotion was shown to improve dryness and itching (1).
Similarly, in other studies involving colloidal oatmeal formulations as a supplement to other treatments of atopic dermatitis, the use of colloidal oatmeal resulted in an improvement in the severity of itchiness and dryness (3). Additionally, it has been proven to benefit people with extremely dry skin (4).
The product also contains glycerin and paraffin, which have been shown to increase skin hydration and decrease the severity of the atopic dermatitis (5, 6).
HelloSkin’s experts were unable to find clinical data on the benefits of Aveeno Lotion in atopic dermatitis.
