The Age Tech Serum: Clinical Study
We have conducted an independent clinical study with the French Company COMPLIFE, to insure results’ transparency. The outcome is compelling at every level.
Tests measuring our serum’s efficacy
All the following tests have been performed on 20 individuals, (males and females mixed), from age 35 to 65. The serum was applied once in the morning once in the evening on clean dry skin for a period of eight weeks. All the following measurements have been made at day 0, 7, 28 and 56.
Assessment of Wrinkle Depth
The measurement principle is based on structured light projection (The device used for measurements was the LIFEVIZ Micro from Quantificare) A software then evaluates skin surface properties such as wrinkle depth and volume.
Results: up to 64% wrinkle reduction after two months.
Assessment of Skin Elasticity
The measurements are made based on a suction method generated by a negative pressure deforming the skin mechanically. (The device used for measurements was the Cutometer® MPA 580 from Courage + Khazaka Electronic GMBH). The parameters were measured on the cheek skin. Gross elasticity was measured through an evaluation of the ability of re-deformation of the skin to its basal state.
Results: up to 22% increase in skin elasticity after two months.
Assessment of Skin Firmness
The measurements are made based on a suction method generated by a negative pressure deforming the skin mechanically. (The device used for measurements was the Cutometer® MPA 580 from Courage + Khazaka Electronic GMBH). Firmness was measured on the cheek skin and assessed skin distensibility.
Results: up to 28% increase in skin firmness after two months.
Assessment of Skin Moisturization Level
Skin moisturization was measured through electricity. The concept is based on the dielectric constant of water, and basically assesses hydration level. (The device used for measurements was the Corneometer® from Courage + Khazaka Electronic GMBH).
Results: up to 75% increase in skin hydration after two months.
Evaluation of Melanin Index
This study measures the reduction in hyperpigmentation or age spots. The device is based on absorption/reflection of three specific light wavelength; (The device used for measurements was the Mexameter from Courage + Khazaka Electronic GMBH).
Results: up to 40% reduction in dark spots after two months.
Other tests for your safety
We are abiding to the Swiss and European safety regulation and our products went through the following mandatory tests:
The Challenge test: Preservative Efficacy of a Cosmetic Product
The aim of the test is to assess the ability of the cosmetic to defend itself against microbes. The product is inoculated with the following common microorganisms: Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Candida albicans, Aspergillus brasiliensis.
The ability of the cosmetic product to reduce the level of these microorganisms is measured at 24h, 7, 14 and 29 days.
Results: antimicrobial protection in accordance with the ISO 11930 standard
Patch test: In Vivo Evaluation of Skin Tolerance of a Cosmetic Product
This test consists of placing the substance directly on the skin. Squares or plastic cups on which the substance is placed are then glued with adhesive tape. The agents are then classified as irritants, moderately irritants and non-irritants, based on degrees of the presence of erythema (redness related to inflammation) or edema (swelling related to inflammation). The test is made on 10 volunteers for 48 hours.
Results: dermatological skin tolerance was qualified as excellent.
Moreover, as we are placing safety first, we wanted to minimize even slight irritability potential. Hence, we processed to the following test that is not mandatory but guarantees low irritation potential:
In Vitro Evaluation of The Eye Irritating Potential
The test is based on cytotoxicity and assessed by a marker called Neural Red which is absorbed by healthy cells, more precisely, their lysosomes. The concentration of cosmetic leading to 50% decrease in this absorption will determine irritability.
Results: ophthalmological tolerance was qualified as excellent.
