Over a consecutive 3 day period subjects between the ages of 19 to 44 applied Dermal Therapy Lip Balm on their dry lips four times a day. This test was performed to measure whether there was an increase in hydration levels and was determined by using a Corneometer on days 0, 1 and 3.
The mean values of the Corneometer were analyzed statistically using an analysis of variance (ANOVA). The results indicated a positive increase in the moisture level of the lips using the Dermal Therapy Lip Balm.
Note: The above results are from a study commissioned by LaCorium Health and conducted at the Australian Photobiology Testing Facility in Sydney.
In a controlled trial, nurses assessed subjects suffering from dry, cracked lips as a direct side effect of strong medications, such as specialised acne treatment and drugs used for Chemotherapy, that were tested on with a Lip Balm. The trial was conducted to measure the effectiveness of the Lip Balm, 20 male and female subjects were provided with a questionnaire to complete the trial.
Subjects rated the detailed effect of the Lip Balm on each of the symptoms using a 7 point scale (1: no effect and 7: great improvement)
The results showed that all 20 subjects reported improvements on the conditions of their lips and found the product to be very effective. It was also reported that they would continue to use the product and recommend it to others.
The nurses who assessed the subjects saw the effectiveness of the lip balm and attest that the product is effective in improving very dry lip conditions of patients.
