Objective: Investigate the irritation mitigation effect of a surfactant compatible emollient in typical cleansing systems.

This study comprises three approaches to fully understand the anti-irritation effect by combining Zein protein solubilization, instrumental measurements of skin dryness and blood perfusion, and sensory evaluations. 

The response to the treatments varied for different ethnic groups. Asian skin had a higher tendency to exhibit irritation, while Caucasian skin tended to exhibit skin dryness. However, both groups showed improvement in skin condition when the active emollient was incorporated either in the high or low surfactant formulation, thus confirming the anti-irritation effect of this emollient.
