The skin smoothing effects of three different liquid gels were compared on 20 mature women. Treatment applications were performed twice a day over a period of 4 weeks, and the skin roughness parameter (Rz) of all test participants was determined at the beginning and at the end of the study using a computer‐aided laser profilometry, in accordance with DIN 4768 ff. At the end of the application period, the liquid gel with 1% of a Dead Sea mineral solution had an average skin roughness parameter reduction of 40.7%. The liquid gel without mineral additives showed an average reduction in skin roughness of 27.8%. The control gel without anti‐wrinkle agents or the additives showed an average reduction of only 10.4%. Resume. On a teste l'influence d'une formulation aux liposomes d'un melange ceramide/phospholipide sur la fonction protectrice de la peau de personnes en test atopique, avec une peau saine, et apres extraction lipidique. On a utilise la perte d'eau transepidermique et l'hydratation de l'epiderme comme parametres d'evaluation de l'influence du traitement sur la fonction protectrice. On a en outre effectue apres application un test de la fonction protectrice avec un ester d'acide nicotinique. On a constate des effets stabilisateurs de la fonction protectrice apres application seulement sur peau atopique et apres extraction lipidique mais pas sur peau saine. Les resultats nous conduisent a esperer des effets positifs uniquement en cas d'alteration de la fonction protectrice.
