Further preventive potential especially for diabetics discovered
Achieve skin circulation-promoting effects in case of impaired peripheral skin circulation
Dry skin may be caused by insufficient circulation. Especially diabetics are often affected by peripheral skin circulation. The six-week application of the GEHWOL med Lipidro Cream significantly improved the microcirculation of the skin due to the increase in blood flow. The result: +16 % more skin circulation.
Improve barrier stability by decreasing transepidermal water loss
Lack of moisture is usually caused by a disturbed skin barrier. This in turn is responsible for the insufficient moisture retention and deficient moisture intake. Increased moisture retention capacity and thus improved barrier properties made a reduction of the transepidermal water loss (TEWL) possible. The result: -14% less water loss.
Increase hydration with urea, algae extract and lipids
Due to the special formulation of urea (10%), algae extract and lipids, a significant increase in the moisture content of the horny layer was observed after six weeks of application. The result: +12% more moisture.
Preserve the natural perspiration capacity of the skin
In order to preserve the natural perspiration capacity of the skin, moisture should not cause any occlusive effects in order to avoid an increase in germ density. Due to the thermostable effect, the skin temperature on the soles and backs of the feet remained constant during the six-week application. The result: The perspiration capacity of the skin is preserved.
Nourish skin even in the toe gaps
In general, diabetics are advised to be careful. Depending on the emulsion used, creaming between the toes can cause the thin skin in this region to swell and bacteria to settle there. This does not happen with GEHWOL med Lipidro Cream. Measurements of the microflora had shown that there was no increased bacterial growth between the toes when the cream was applied. The result: the cream can also be recommended for use between the toes.

However, despite the great lipid content, there is no feeling of oily skin. This is another result of the study: 96% of the users report a very good or good skin feeling. Undesirable sealing of the skin or increase in skin temperature were not found. GEHWOL med Lipidro Cream is dermatologically tested and unscented.
