Incontinence-associated dermatitis (IAD) is a common form of irritant contact dermatitis caused by prolonged skin contact with urine. Moisturizing and restoring the skin barrier function are vital to treating IAD.
Atopic dermatitis (AD) causes dry skin, itch, and rash. Up to 50% of people with AD lack the natural protein filaggrin in their skin. Therefore, their skin becomes dry, cracked and prone to infections.
1 in 250 people has dry “fish scale” skin. It is caused by a lack of filaggrin – a protein that occurs naturally in the skin and plays a vital role in maintaining a healthy skin.
A recent survey of biomee™ customers found that 83.6% prefer biomee™ to other products for relieving symptoms like dry, itchy, and red skin related to Sjögren's, atopic dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis, and other conditions.
Amino acids found in the outermost layers of the skin are crucial to normal skin hydration and are derived from degradation of the protein filaggrin. Filaggrin mutations or suppressed filaggrin production due to inflammation can result in lack of amino acids and dry skin.
