dc.description.abstractNguyen, Hanh T., Evaluation of Sensitive Skin in the Asian Population. Masters of Science (Clinical Research Management), December, 2008, pp. 80, 7 tables, 1 illustration, bibliography, 26 titles. Over 50% of the world’s population has self-perceived sensitive skin. Many of these individuals believe that their skin sensitivity was caused by topical products which caused them to avoid certain skincare products. However, previous research has shown that geographical environments such as weather changes, temperature, pollution, diet, and lifestyle can cause or enhance skin sensitivity. The results from this study failed to confirm the results from earlier studies. Instead, data indicated that geographical environment effects on skin sensitivity were minimal. Moreover, analysis of transepidermal effects on skin sensitivity were minimal. Moreover, analysis of transepidermal water loss for subjects with and without sensitive skin revealed that the skin barrier function for both skin types was not significantly different. Future studies are needed to investigate the sensitivity of the transepidermal water loss for evaluating skin barrier function. In addition, sample size for these studies should be increased to better represent the testing population. Moreover, if the Asian population is used in future clinical research studies, success will be governed by the effectiveness of the educational materials in minimizing the gap between Asian culture and clinical research in this population.
