Oral supplement offers brighter skin

Newly published clinical study on SkinAx≤ confirms its capacity to improve skin radiance by oral route

SkinAx≤, a patented anti-aging formula developed by French company ActivíInside, has been backed by a clinical study on its capacity to improve skin radiance by oral route. The study has just been published in Clinical, Cosmetic and Investigational Dermatology.

SkinAx≤ ingredients have been carefully selected for their demonstrated and complementary beneficial effects on skin, already reported in more than 40 scientific publications. Combining French grape (Vitis vinifera L.) and melon (Cucumis melo L.) extracts rich in polyphenols and SuperOxide Dismutase (SOD), zinc and vitamin C, SkinAx≤ provides both primary and secondary antioxidants for an optimal and synergistic protection against skin oxidation.

Clinically tested under dermatological control on 35 women using both subjective and objective methods, SkinAx≤ was found to improve all the parameters involved in skin radiance (colour, contrast, imperfection). After two months of oral supplementation (150mg of SkinAx≤/day), 82% of women enrolled had a more even complexion and a brighter skin.

'Contrary to most skin anti-aging solutions, SkinAx≤ not only acts on a single parameter but has a full and complementary action on all factors involved in skin radiance: your skin is more luminous, smoother and firmer, with fewer imperfections,' said Marion Dumoulin, co-author of the study. 'Overall, more than 20 clinical results detailing the SkinAx≤ efficacy have been obtained, each representing one validated differentiating message for the final consumers.'

Available both as an ingredient or a ready-to-use formulation for private labelling, SkinAx≤ was selected as one of the three finalists of the NutraIngredients awards organised during the last Vitafoods Europe show; it has also been chosen as a finalist in CPG Editorís Choice Award, the winner of which will be selected at the forthcoming Supply Side West event.
