NEW YORK – Kao USA Inc. has introduced two products designed to address the cause and effects of dry skin.
Curél Itch Defense Body Wash and Curél Itch Defense Instant Soothing Moisturizing Spray offer hydration in the shower as well as a moisturizing spray that calms flare-ups on contact.
The body wash serves as a calming and hydrating cleanser. According to the company, it is formulated with a blend of cleansing agents mild enough for serious dryness and eczema-prone skin. The soap-free formula is made with a cationic ingredient that the company says leaves skin especially soft. The body wash is available in a light citrus scent that comes from orange oil, plus a conditioning mix of panthenol, glycerin, jojoba and olive oil.
Curél Itch Defense Instant Soothing Moisturizing Spray is a nonmedicated, moisturizing spray formulated with such hydrators as a proprietary ceramide complex, allantoin and panthenol, the company says. The proprietary cooling complex offers a soothing sensation like a cold compress.
A 10-ounce bottle of the Curél Itch Defense Body Wash sells for a suggested $6.99. A six-ounce bottle of the Curél Itch Defense Soothing Moisturizing Spray sells for a suggested $8.99.
