The dry season is hard to handle every year. Thinking more than usual this year, Would you like to work on “dry measures” for your hands?
Rough hands are a common symptom that we see on a daily basis, but in fact, once the hands are rough, it takes time to completely heal. Especially from autumn to winter, many people feel the symptoms of rough hands due to the dryness of the outside air. Also, people who do not feel rough hands may actually have damaged skin.
Healthy skin has a barrier function to prevent moisture from escaping inside and to protect it from external stimuli due to the stratum corneum on the surface of the skin and the sebum coating that covers it. However, according to the results of this survey, there are many people who feel that “washing dishes has an effect on rough hands.” The barrier function of the skin deteriorates. And when the barrier function declines, the dryness of the skin progresses, and when it gets worse, symptoms such as itching may occur.
“If you start to feel dry, it’s a sign of rough hands.” Even when washing dishes that damage your hands, it is important to take measures against dryness with detergents that are gentle on your hands before you feel dryness. We recommend that you choose

*[Method] Transepidermal cells from the epidermal model before and after culturing for 24 hours by contacting an epidermal model (J-TEC Lab Site Shrimp Model, Lab Site, J-TEC) with 2 w/w% detergent solution for 60 minutes and culturing for 24 hours. The amount of water loss (TEWL) was measured, and the gentleness to hand skin was evaluated from the rate of change (%). The rate of change (%) was determined by (TEWL of the epidermis model after detergent adaptation – TEWL of the epidermis model before detergent adaptation) x 100. Based on our experiments. (This data is an example of measurement, not standard values.)
Comparing the amount of water that evaporates from the hands after washing the dishes, the gentleness of Frosh (R) on the hands is almost the same as washing with water.
