Aveeno introduces eczema cream, body wash
SKILLMAN, N.J. Aveeno on Friday introduced the Eczema Care Moisturizing Cream and Body Wash, new products formulated to help manage daily symptoms of eczema and improve the skin’s natural barrier function.
“We have conducted extensive research in order to develop [a] proprietary Triple Oat formula to manage eczema symptoms,” stated Judith Nebus, manager of clinical research for skin care at Aveeno. “Key ingredients in the patented formula, including ceramides and panthenol, moisturize and help protect the skin’s barrier to help prevent the recurrence of redness, irritation and extra dry skin.”

In a clinical study, all subjects who used the Aveeno Eczema Care Moisturizing Cream twice a day showed improvement in roughness in one week, the company reported. In a separate clinical study, subjects who used the Aveeno Eczema Care products showed significant improvements in itching and skin scaling after one week of use.
Additionally, 89 percent of consumers found that the Moisturizing Cream helped them manage the daily symptoms of eczema and 78 percent of consumers reported the same for the Body Wash.
