Clinical Studies


Efficacy of a soy moisturizer in photoaging: a double-blind, vehicle-controlled, 12-week study.

Products

Aveeno Positively Radiant Skin Daily Moisturizer

Product vehicle

Trial Design

Parallel, randomized, double-blind, vehicle-controlled

Duration

12 weeks of treatment

Subjects

68 females aged 30 to 61 with Fitzpatrick phototypes I, II and III, and with moderate facial photodamage.

Regimen

Applied Aveeno Positively Radiant Skin Daily Moisturizer on the entire face twice daily, once in the morning and again in the evening. Subjects also avoided sun exposure.

Methods of Assessment

Colorimetry to quantify skin brightness and colour.

Clinical evaluations by a dermatologist on tactile roughness, mottled hyperpigmentation, lentigines, blotchiness, dullness and fine lines, on a 10-point scale.

Global investigator assessment of overall skin texture, overall skin tone and overall skin appearance on a 10-point scale.

Subjects' ratings of the appearance and feel of their skin in a mirror on a 10-point scale.

Side Effects

1 subject on the vehicle formulation developed mild contact dermatitis. Patch testing was negative for an allergic reaction however, and the subject continued to use the product.

Conflicts of Interest

Sponsored by J&J, the manufacturer of Aveeno products. 2 out of 3 authors were employees of J&J.

Effects observed in this study:

Aveeno Positively Radiant Skin Daily Moisturizer was significantly superior to the vehicle in improving skin tone, skin clarity, mottled hyperpigmentation, blotchiness and fine lines, as well as overall texture and appearance. Importantly, all subjects achieved smoother skin and greater skin clarity, and the vast majority also experienced at least a 1-grade improvement in mottled hyperpigmentation, fine lines and skin tone.

Colorimetry confirmed the improvement in skin tone and skin lightening, but skin brightness was not significantly different between the 2 groups. This was thought to be because colorimetry captures data from a limited skin area, while the clinical evaluation assesses the appearance of a much larger skin area.
