Bordeaux area (FR), September 2016 – Developed by Activ’Inside (France), SkinAx²TM is a patented anti-aging formula backed by one published clinical study on its capacity to improve skin radiance by oral route. Combining French grape (Vitis vinifera L.) and melon (Cucumis melo L.) extracts respectively rich in polyphenols and SuperOxide Dismutase (SOD), zinc and vitamin C, SkinAx²TM 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, SkinAx²TM globally improves all the parameters involved in skin radiance (color, contrast, imperfection): after 2 months of oral supplementation, 82% of women enrolled have an even complexion and a more brighten skin. Available both as an ingredient or a ready-to-use formulation for private labelling, SkinAx²TM is a unique and patented solution with more than 20 clinical data. The innovation provided by SkinAx²TM on the nutricosmetic market has already been rewarded twice: already selected as one of the three finalists of the NutraIngredients awards organized during the last Vitafoods Europe show, SkinAx²TM has also been selected as a finalist of CPG Editor’s Choice Award, whose winner will be selected at the upcoming Supply Side west event.
Clinical evidence on skin radiance: new publication
The efficacy of SkinAx²TM is backed by one clinical study, recently approved for publication in the peer-reviewed journal Clinical, Cosmetic and Investigational Dermatology. SkinAx²TM has been clinically tested in France on 35 Caucasian women (40-70 years old) with dull complexion. Performed under dermatological control, 3 approaches evaluating both objective (sensorial evaluation and physical measurement) and subjective (self-assessment) criteria of skin radiance have been conducted. After two months of oral supplementation (150 mg of SkinAx²TM/day), results show a significant global effect of SkinAx² TM on skin radiance factors: color, contrast, imperfection. 82% of women are satisfied by the efficacy of SkinAx²TM on skin radiance, and 2 women out of 3 feel looking better after the supplementation.
“Contrary to most of skin anti-aging solutions, SkinAx²TM 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 less imperfections” highlights Marion Dumoulin, co-author of the study. “Overall, more than 20 clinical results detailing the SkinAx²TM efficacy have been obtained, each representing one validated differentiating message for the final consumers”, she adds.
A patented and optimal antioxidant protection
SkinAx²TM is a unique and patented combination of natural French grape (Vitis vinifera L.) and melon (Cucumis melo L.) extracts, respectively rich in highly bioavailable flavanol monomers and bioactive SuperOxide Dismutase (SOD), zinc and vitamin C. SkinAx²TM ingredients have been carefully selected for their demonstrated and complementary beneficial effects on skin, already reported in more than 40 scientific publications. Providing both primary and secondary antioxidants, SkinAx²TM provides an optimal and synergistic antioxidant protection, preventing skin oxidation, well-known as the main cause of skin alterations.
The unique antioxidant capacity of SkinAx² allows regulating melanin synthesis, protect skin fibers from degradation and improve skin microcirculation. This multifactorial way of action contributes to the global effect of SkinAx² TM on the three main components of skin radiance: color, contract and imperfection.
