Outline: Clinical Efficacy Evaluation of a Moisturizing Product
Objective: To determine if the use of a moisturizing product increases moisture content of the skin for up to 8 hours.
Subjects: 30 healthy women
Timing: 4 days to finish with 30 subjects
Start test within 10 days of receipt of samples
Report submitted within 4 weeks after study completion
Quantity: 8 oz.
Methodology: Corneometer® (Courage + Khazaka) to measure moisture content of the skin

Panelists arrive at the testing center on day 1 of the study and calibrate to room conditions. Test sites are marked on the forearm using a skin marker. A baseline measurement of moisture content using a Corneometer® is taken on each site. Test material is applied to one site, and the other serves as the control and remains untreated. After 15 minutes and 1, 2, 4, and 8 hours follow-up measurements are taken.
