Subjects were given a moisturizing bar that contained Bonicel at a 5% inclusion rate and were instructed to wash their face twice daily for 14 days. Subjects were instructed not to use any other daily moisturizers, and were allowed to apply normal make-up. High-resolution photographs were taken at baseline and day 14 for analysis.
Bonicel at a 5% inclusion decreases redness, even in a product that is washed off, said the company.
A second study was conducted on a bar that did not contain Bonciel. It is known that these types of products can cause skin irritation. As expected, this study demonstrated a 31% increase in facial redness over 14 days.
