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).
