    Light emollients

    Skin feel

    Method of quantitative descriptive analysis

    • Volunteers were trained using defined substances prior to testing
    • Rating 0 = none to 100 = very strong/very high for defined attributes
    • Samples (50 μl) are applied randomly on inner side of the forearms and evaluated two times
    • Usually 8 panelists participate in test in climate controlled rooms
    • 36 samples of emollients in total were evaluated during 3 phases of perception

    Method of quantitative descriptive analysis

    Principal component analysis (PCA) is a statistical procedure used to analyze the variability of data, determine patterns within the data sets and can be used to visualize the results. All 27 attributes for the 6 emollients were subjected to PCA to facilitate visualization of the main patterns for each emollient.


    Definition of skin feel attributes

    • Dry: thin, immediate disappearing feel, dull – reminiscent of paper surface
    • Residue: amount of product on skin (from low to high)
    • Oil-smooth: thin, slippery, cared-for, even, sleek, continuous feel – reminiscent of baby oil
    • Wax-dry: thin, dry, draggy, stiff, coated feel – reminiscent of candle wax
    • Cushiony: soft, „nourishing“ feel – reminiscent of pillow
    • Silicone oil feel: thin, dry, slippery, not sticky, silky, continuous feel, low level residue / cushiony feel – reminiscent of silicone oils
    • Powdery: a thin, slippery coating that is very dry, smooth and silky feel on the skin – reminiscent of talcum powder

    PCA (Principal Component Analysis)

    • Cetiol® Ultimate is close to silicone oil feel and leaves a powdery feel with a low residue
    • Cetiol® Sensoft leaves a low residue and a wax-dry and oil-smooth after feel
    • Cetiol® OE, Cetiol® C 5 and Cetiol® CC are all close to silicone oil feel with different lightness
    • Cetiol® RLF leaves an oil-smooth and silicone oil-like after feel

    Kinetic skin sensory profile

    Each spider map reveals the unique kinetic skin sensory profile of each light emollient.

    Profiles are the result of the analysis related to mean ratings of a total of 36 emollients.

    With a difference of more than ± 20% compared to the mean ratings of the 36 emollients, attributes in profiles are considered as highly different (outside area of a grey ring in a map).

    Red dots indicate highly different sensory attributes and bigger sized ones are dominant attributes defining a unique character of the sensory profile of each phase of evaluation (Rub-out phase, Immediate after feel, 20 minutes after feel).
