Hands up if you shower at least once daily.
What do you use when you shower ? soap bar ? shower gel ? shower oil? milk ? butter < kidding? For me, I use shower gel for sensitive skin because I find them more mild and not so dry on the skin. Isn’t it a pain when you step out from the shower and feel like your skin is dry, even though clean?
Regular body washes that do not contain nourishing ingredients can cause dry skin damage by washing away skin’s natural moisture. Some body washes can actually damage proteins and lipids in the skin’s outer layer in the process of cleansing. Minimizing this damage during cleansing is important for maintaining skin’s beauty.
So I was at The Food Studio, Mont Kiara, to find out about how we can get nourished skin while showering, without stripping off the skin’s natural moisture. (Not only that, we also cooked our lunch with healthy ingredients to promote healthy skin)
Now, Dove has discovered how to actually/effectively nourish skin while cleansing with body wash. By doing so, the body wash minimizes the damage caused during cleansing and cares for skin’s long-term beauty.
That sounds good right? It’s like cleaning and moisturizing at the same time. What’s the secret ?
So what’s NutriumMoisture™
• Helps rebuild skin’s beauty from the inside the epidermis layer by replenishing lipid so it feels more beautiful on the outside
• Unlike moisturizers in regular body washes that wash away during cleansing, when used regularly NutriumMoisture™ penetrates surface skin 20 layers deep into the epidermis layer of the skin to replenish and nourish.
“Dove has continuously led innovations in the skin care industry and the introduction of NutriumMoisture™ technology continues that tradition,” said Tanya Teng, Brand Manager for Skin Cleansing at Unilever (M) Sdn Bhd. “We are thrilled our extensive research and testing has allowed us to be the first brand to minimize lipid damage with a liquid cleanser in order to provide long-term beauty benefits that strengthen and smooth skin.”
“By absorbing into the skin, Dove NutriumMoisture™ helps rebuild skin’s beauty from the inside of the epidermis layer to make it feel more beautiful on the outside. The new technology delivers hydration for skin barrier components and processes to help skin remain healthy and beautiful in the longterm when used daily,” said John Goh, R&D Deploy Manager, Home & Personal Care and R&D Site Leader, Unilever (M) Sdn Bhd.
So how is it better than milk ? We know that milk is nourishing for the skin already, but can Dove NutriumMoisture™ prove otherwise ?
We had some tests and experiments to try. I volunteered to try it out since it always is better trying on our own skin rather than just seeing it.
So yes, according to the gadget to measure moisture level on the skin (hydrometer ?), there’s a higher increment in using Dove NutriumMoisture™ than milk. Indeed more nourishing than milk.
NutriumMoisture™: Clinically Proven to Deliver Results
The new Dove Body Wash collection with NutriumMoisture™ is clinically proven to deliver noticeable results. Results from a clinical study show that when used daily:
• Softer, smoother skin all over
• Significantly reduces dryness

We then had our lunch cooked by all the other bloggers attended with the guidance of Chef Paul, from The Food Studio. It was very fun and interactive to include cooking in any events. Definitely is more fun than sitting and listening to people talking ?
