Rahn Reveals New Study

August 15, 2014

Illumiscin fights age spots.

The latest ingredient from Rahn, Illumiscin, eliminates age spots and provides illuminated skin. A balanced composition of oleuropein, vitamin C and zinc-PCA effectively fights against both the pigments responsible for the appearance of age spots – melanin and lipofuscin. Rahn already could show that Illumiscin diminishes the size and reduces the contour contrast of age spots.

A new in-vivo study was carried out in European winter (first month) and spring (second and third month). This placebo-controlled, double-blind and random study reveals that following the application on the back of the hands Illumiscin has a lightening effect on age spots under winter sun (depigmentation) and inhibited new pigment formation under spring sun (repigmentation). It could also be demonstrated that Illumiscin controls age spots without lightening the surrounding skin: the lightening effect on age spots is much stronger than on surrounding skin areas.

Thus the efficacy of Illumiscin is based on a triple effect: minimization, lightening and fading-out of age spots.

This distinguishes Illumiscin from conventional skin lighteners which reduce the color of the age spots and the adjacent skin simultaneously. The application of Illumiscin for the treatment of age spots is patented.
