The Alpine rose thrives at high altitudes, perfectly adapted to combat cold, dehydration, and sun exposure. Despite extreme conditions, it blooms every spring more beautiful than ever. Alpine rose stem cells reinforce and stimulate the skin barrier, promoting elasticity and suppleness.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
STUDY #1: ANTI-WRINKLE EFFECT
During the previously described study, high-definition photographs were taken using the VisioFace Quick®. On these photographs taken with white light, the characteristics of the skin such as wrinkles, skin redness and skin radiance were evaluated by trained assessors.
Results showed, after only 16 days a visible reduction of the depth and number of wrinkles on crow’s feet by the Alpine Rose.
After the use of Alpine Rose for 16 days, the TEWL was shown to be reduced compared to the placebo. The TEWL was measured on the face (cheeks) using a tewameter.
This 39 % reduction of TEWL indicates a stronger skin barrier. Thus, Alpine Rose protects the skin barrier by making it more resistant to the combination of strong environmental stresses (UV, cold, wind, dryness).
On the half side of the face treated with the placebo, results didn’t show any improvement of the skin radiance and redness / irritations compared to initial conditions and even a worsening of the wrinkles. Comparatively, the other side treated with Alpine Rose showed an improvement of each of these 3 characteristics.
Compared to initial conditions and to the placebo: • wrinkles were less visible for 45 % of the volunteers • complexion was more radiant for 54 % of the volunteers • redness / irritations were reduced for 9 % of the volunteers.
