The test items consisted of skin findings, equipment measurements, and a questionnaire survey by a dermatologist, and a before-and-after comparison was made at the start of the test and after 4 weeks.
As a result, a significant improvement in the dryness score was observed in the skin findings, and a significant change in the stratum corneum water content and transepidermal water loss was also observed in instrumental measurements.
