Despite visible relief of the dryness symptoms, however, the abnormal transepidermal water loss has been reported to remain high, or even to increase under certain regimens, whereas other moisturizers improve skin barrier function.
As for fine lines and wrinkles, Numelle reduces their appearance by reducing transepidermal water loss.
Clinical studies measure epidermal barrier integrity by looking for changes in transepidermal water loss (TEWL) as well as susceptibility of skin to irritation by, for example, sodium lauryl sulphate (SLS).
Improvement of the saturated to unsaturated fat ratio provides for cellular lubricity, which benefits skin tone and reduces transepidermal water loss to prevent dryness.
The processes of molecular heat transfer, metabolic heat production and heat transfer due to blood flow are modelled as well as the heat losses over the skin by transepidermal water loss, radiation, and convection.
With the women divided into three age groups--13 to 14, 16 to 18 and 19 into the early 20s--the initial study showed that the hydration state of the stratum corneum increased with age, while there was no statistical difference in transepidermal water loss values between the three groups.
Removal of 6-7 [micro]M of the stratum corneum by 30 tape strips using D-Squame tape and significant increases in transepidermal water loss after 30 tape strips have been documented (Dreher et al.
