Doux Ultra Moisturizing Bar contains several natural ingredients that work together to cleanse and moisturise the skin. 

Doux Ultra Moisturizing Bar general information

What is Doux Ultra Moisturizing Bar used for?

Doux Ultra Moisturizing Bar is used to cleanse and moisturise the skin, and is particularly suitable for dry sensitive skin.  Xerosis is dry skin lacking in moisture in the outer horny layer of the skin, the stratum corneum.  This is a layer of compacted non-living cells that contains natural water retaining molecules.  The skin is also protected by sebum that covers the stratum corneum in an oily layer and reduces evaporation of water. As skin dries out, its structure breaks down and skin becomes scaly with loss of surface cells in clumps, leading to increased cell turnover.  Dry skin is also more prone to rash formation.  Dry skin is usually caused by environmental factors, such as extreme climactic conditions including cold, dry, low humidity weather as well as exposure to ultraviolet radiation from the sun, which penetrates the skin causing damage.  Using harsh soaps or detergents can also cause dry skin.  Other causes include, some medications, like diuretics,  inherited skin conditions like atopic dermatitis (eczema) and other health conditions like diabetes and thyroid disease (underactive thyroid).  Cleansing the skin is necessary to remove excess oil, dirt and unpleasant odours, however many cleansing agents and soaps contain harsh ingredients that can cause the skin to lose moisture or cause irritation.  Doux Ultra Moisturizing Bar cleanses the skin without drying or irritating the skin while moisturising the skin and it can be used for all skin types including dry sensitive skin. 

How does Doux Ultra Moisturizing Bar work?

Doux Ultra Moisturizing Bar contains a blend of emollients that softens skin, humectants that promotes water retention in the outer layers of the skin and occlusives that prevents water loss by forming a thin oily film over the skin.  Doux Ultra Moisturizing Bar also contains moisturisers that help hydrate dry skin while other ingredients cleanse the skin.  Dimethicone is a surfactant that removes oil-soluble dirt by loosening particles and sticking to dirt on the skin surface; water in the cleansing bar allows the trapped dirt to be washed away.  Glycerin is a humectant that absorbs water from the air and cleanses skin without stripping away natural oils.  It is also low irritant so is less likely to cause a reaction.  Glycerin is also a rich source of antioxidants vitamin A and E, with emollient skin softening properties.  Other ingredients in Doux Ultra Moisturizing Bar include Cocoa Butter, a natural emollient that has a pleasant texture and fragrance.  Natural oils are widely used in moisturisers1.  These include Wheat Germ oil, which is rich in essential fatty acids including, palmitic, oleic, linoleic and linoleic fatty acids; it is also rich in vitamin E, an antioxidant that helps preserve skin from damage by free radicles.  Olive oil is also rich in vitamins A and E and emollients to soften skin and its moisturising and healing properties have been known for thousands of years.  Aloe Vera has anti-irritant and soothing properties for dry and damaged skin, it also acts as a moisturiser and emollient2.  Skin is naturally slightly acidic with a pH of 4-5.5 and is covered in an acid mantle comprised of sebum and sweat3.  The acid mantle provides the optimal environment for the natural flora (bacteria and yeast), which exist on human skin without causing infection.  This protects against the spread of harmful bacteria and also from damage caused by environmental factors.  If the pH increases so that the skin becomes alkaline, the natural skin flora changes and are dispersed from the skin.  This can happen if the acid mantle is washed off by harsh detergents, which can also cause loss of water from the skin and result in dry flaky skin.  Ordinary soap has an alkaline pH which can damage the skin’s barrier function4.  Doux Ultra Moisturizing Bar has a pH of 5.5, which is close to the natural pH of skin and thereby helps maintain the skin’s acid mantle.

Doux Ultra Moisturizing Bar contains the active ingredients Shea Butter, Aloe Vera, Cocoa Butter, Wheat Germ oil, Olive oil, Glycerin and Dimethicone, used in combination to cleanse and moisturize the skin.  It also contains perfume and water.

Cleansing skin with Doux Ultra Moisturizing Bar

Cleansing the skin is necessary to remove excess oil, dirt and unpleasant odours, however many cleansing agents and soaps contain harsh ingredients that can cause the skin to lose moisture or cause irritation.  Doux Ultra Moisturizing Bar contains a blend of emollients (skin softeners), humectants (retains water in the skin) and occlusives (protects skin from evaporation of water) and surfactants (binds and removes lipid soluble dirt) that gently cleanses, softens and moisturises skin, while promoting water retention in the skin and without the harshness of ordinary soap.  These include, Shea Butter, Aloe Vera, Cocoa Butter, Wheat Germ oil, Olive oil, Glycerin and Dimethicone. Doux Ultra Moisturizing Bar is suitable for cleansing all skin types but is particularly helpful for dry or irritated skin.  Xerosis is dry skin lacking in moisture in the outer horny layer of the skin, the stratum corneum.  This is a layer of compacted non-living cells that contains natural water retaining molecules.  The skin is also protected by sebum that covers the stratum corneum in an oily layer and reduces evaporation of water.  Dry skin is usually caused by environmental factors, such as extreme climactic conditions including cold, dry, low humidity weather as well as exposure to ultraviolet radiation from the sun, which penetrates the skin causing damage.  Using harsh soaps or detergents can also cause dry skin.  Other causes include, some medications, like diuretics,  inherited skin conditions like atopic dermatitis (eczema) and other health conditions like diabetes and thyroid disease (underactive thyroid).  Doux Ultra Moisturizing Bar has a pH of 5.5, which is close to the natural pH of skin and thereby helps maintain the skin’s acid mantle and promotes the survival of the skin’s natural flora and prevents growth of harmful bacteria.
