Locobase Repair performs just as well as petrolatum in study

In a double-blind study, a commercially available physiological lipid mixture (containing ceramide 3) was found to promote barrier recovery in SLS-irritated and tape-stripped human skin, compared with the untreated control area. However, the barrier recovery was not superior to its placebo (petrolatum) (Figure 15.2).

Ingredients of Locobase Repair: Petrolatum, Aqua, Paraffin, Paraffinum Liquidum, Glycerin, Sorbitan Oleate, Carnauba, Cholesterol, Ceramide 3, Oleic Acid, Palmitic Acid, Carbomer, Tromethamine

Review with Pictures (in German)

I’d like to see a comparison between the Locobase product that more directly compares the lipid mixture vs. petrolatum. Perhaps a setup with the Locobase vs. an emulsion with the same water to petrolatum proportions would work.
