The latest scientific data confirm that protecting the skin barrier ecosystem is a critical element in the management of skin issues. In pets as in humans, it is particularly important in sensitive, itchy and irritated skin problems.
What is DOUXO® Calm?
Just like people your pet can show allergic symptoms to everyday substances.
DOUXO® Calm replenishes the barrier that protects your pet from allergens and irritants and improves skin hydratation between day 0 and day 21 (see chart). The skin becomes more supple which reduces the sensations of itching.
DOUXO® Calm is clinically proven to help to decrease itch and irritation in sensitive skins.
Skin hydratation rate - DOUXO® Calm Shampoo & Mousse
DOUXO® Calm contains Phytosphingosine
DOUXO® Calm, as the entire DOUXO® range, contains the patented molecule Phytosphingosine. It is a fundamental component of ceramides, complex lipids, found naturally in the skin and ensuring the cohesion of the skin barrier.
Phytosphingosine is a key player in skin functions and helps protect the skin barrier ecosystem:
- Supports the cohesion of the mechanical skin barrier
- Soothes and hydrates
- Helps balance microflora
Pseudofilaggrin for an enhanced activity on the skin barrier
Skin of atopic dogs presents a filaggrin defect.
Filaggrin is a protein that permits to skin cells to mature and become the strong corneocytes that protect the body from outside. Filaggrin has also a direct role in moisturization: it degrades producing NMF (Natural Moisturizing Factor) which is essential to skin hydration. We can compare filaggrin to a sponge that helps retain the water in the skin.
DOUXO® Calm Shampoo and Mousse contain Pseudofilaggrin that boosts the profilaggrin synthesis and that guarantees impermeability of skin barrier.
