Kelisoft Leads The Way at Sederma
Sederma recently debuted a variety of new ingredients, including Kelisoft, a new hair minimizer that reduces stubble and softens skin under the arms.
Kelisoft slows down hair growth while refining its diameter, according to the company. The hair is thus less visible and the need to shave as often is reduced. Due to its anti-inflammatory properties, Kelisoft also provides an immediate soothing sensation after hair removal. It contains a purified natural plant molecule, which regulates the production of inflammatory mediators.

Rahn Cosmetic Actives Protect Epidermal Stem Cells
Stem cells are the fountain of youth for skin. Epidermal stem cells are the key cells that initiate tissue regeneration and play a fundamental role in rejuvenation. They are responsible for the maintenance of homeostasis after the skin is stressed or damaged. Thus, damage of stem cells is a predominant factor that leads to accelerated skin aging.
Rahn has screened two cosmetic actives, Defensil and Celligent, for their stem cell protecting properties and has observed impressive results for both, according to the company.
Defensil is an optimized system for physical and biochemical protection, which normalizes sensitive skin types due to its excellent inflammation inhibitory efficacy. Treatment with this ingredient leads to remarkable effects on stem cells following damage by UV-irradiation.
Celligent is both a preventative and an active cell and DNA protector. The active ingredient complex has been specially developed for treating UV-stressed skin.
