Aveeno Skin Relief Soothing Shampoo is part of the extensive Aveeno range of moisturising products that use the re-hydrating properties of oatmeal. These products aim to soothe the itching and sensitivity associated with dry skin conditions.

This shampoo has a gentle formula that soothes a sensitive and itchy scalp while cleansing the hair to leave it feeling healthy, soft, and shiny.

Finely-milled (colloidal) oatmeal helps to moisturise the scalp, which may be very dry or damaged from a skin condition.

The lightly-fragranced shampoo is free of many common irritants and formulated for frequent use. It can be used daily even on fine and fragile hair.

Scientific Research

For people with Psoriasis

HelloSkin’s experts were unable to find clinical data on the use of Aveeno Skin Relief Soothing Shampoo in people with psoriasis. However, the product contains glycerol and colloidal oatmeal.

Glycerol effectively attracts and binds water, and thereby helps hydrating the upper skin layers. In dry skin conditions, including psoriasis, water loss from the upper skin layer is linked to a reduced skin barrier function, which may be worsening the disease symptoms (1).

Further, extracts of colloidal oatmeal lotion have shown anti-inflammatory benefits in lab models and in animal itch models (2, 3), and in a human study shown to improve dry and itchy skin conditions (2).

Furthermore, one study also found that the colloidal oatmeal emollient compared with its vehicle had significant benefits on people with extremely dry skin (4).
