Atopic dermatitis is a chronic, inflammatory skin condition that affects around 15-20% of children and 1-3% of adults1. Among the most notable symptoms are; intense itch, redness and a weakened skin barrier2,3. The skin barrier serves two important functions:

  1. Keeping moisture in

  2. Keeping allergens/irritants out

This function relies on the intercellular lipids (ceramides, cholesterol, free fatty acids), which interlink to form water-repellent membranes, or sheets, between the skin cells4. So the amount of water or moisture being lost through the skin, called trans-epidermal water loss can be a good way to measure the integrity of the skin barrier4.

Maintaining adequate skin hydration is especially important for people with eczema.

In order to maintain normal function and elasticity, the outermost layer of the skin (the stratum corneum) should have a water content of 20-30%6.

Why QV Dermcare® Eczema Daily?

QV Dermcare Eczema Daily Wash and QV Dermcare Eczema Daily Cream are medical devices in Australia and are backed by years of research and clinical testing.

One hundred adults medically diagnosed with moderate eczema took part in a clinical trial. They were randomly assigned QV Dermcare Eczema Daily Wash and Daily Cream, or a placebo wash and cream. For 28 days they showered using the wash once a day, and applied the cream twice a day, in the morning and evening. See the results for yourself!

QV Dermcare Eczema Daily Cream and QV Dermcare Eczema Daily Wash, when used together, were found to significantly reduce moisture loss (TEWL) over 28 days compared to the placebo cream and wash5.

Of those that used QV Dermcare Eczema Daily range over the period achieved greater product satisfaction and experienced skin softness and smoothness. And, indicated better itch relief than the placebo5.

While moisturisers and cleansers are often recommended by Health Professionals for eczema affected skin, most are cosmetic products that are only designed for normal, healthy looking skin. QV Dermcare Eczema Daily range is clinically tested and designed for mild to moderate skin5.

QV Dermcare Eczema Daily contains a researched blend of ingredients that work together to support the skin barrier in mild to moderate eczema skin, including, glycerin, lactic acid, niacinamide (vitamin B3) and a ceramide blend (ceramides, cholesterol, free fatty acid).

There were no serious adverse events recorded during the clinical trial, and none of the participants withdrew from the trial due to minor adverse events.
