The Trial

Oat® COM In-Vivo Skin Trial to assess skin repair properties.

  • This study was carried out on 15 healthy adult subjects over a period of 10 days.
  • Two skin areas on the volar forearms were pre-irritated using a 0.5% Sodium Dodecyl Sulphate solution, one area was covered with an patch coated with 0.6% Oat® COM and the other an uncoated control.
  • The test sites were assessed at day 0, after 24 hours, 5 days and rate of recovery compared.

More Info

The combination of Tewameter and Corneometer results showed that Oat® COM supported the increased rate of repair of the skin. The data additionally showed statistically significant better recovery than the control site on Day 5 for assessments of skin hydration, skin cracking and visual erythema. Visual erythema scores were extremely impressive.
