Abstract

Clinical evaluation of skin safety and usefulness for dry skin by a new cosmetic series "MM" was made in patients with contact dermatitis and atopic dermatitis by usage test. The "MM" series, intended to be hypoirritant and hypoallergic, were prepared by Nippon Menard Cosmetic Co., Ltd., for the subjects with sensitive skin. It is composed of cleansing cream, washing cream, lotion, milk lotion, and cream, totaling 5 cosmetics. The results of the arm usage test for 4 weeks in 10 patients with atopic dermatitis and 10 healthy volunteers indicated that the "MM" series significantly improved dry skin. Furthermore, the results of the face usage test for 4 weeks in 30 patients with dry skin indicated that the "MM" series were safe, since only a few patients stopped this trial due to side effects, and the improvement rate in dry skin was high. The "MM" series were thus concluded to be safe and useful for those with sensitive skin.
