New Redness Relief from Rahn

April 1, 2014

Couperose denotes a persistent dilation and relaxation of the blood vessels in the facial region and is characterized by a typical copper-red coloration, which can result in visible small blood vessels (telangiectasia), particularly in the area of the cheeks, but also on the nose or forehead. If the damage progresses, it can lead to severe inflammatory changes in the blood vessels, also known as rosacea.

A new double-blind, placebo-controlled study reveals that Defensil-Plus markedly reduces the severity of couperose, according to Rahn. It contends within six weeks, the active ingredient significantly and visibly reduces redness as well as the degree of inflammation and improves the appearance of couperose-prone skin.

According to Rahn, the special properties of blackcurrant seed oil and balloon vine extract, in combination with sunflower oil concentrate, effectively reduce inflammatory processes and replenish the damaged skin barrier. Defensil-Plus soothes various forms of skin irritation; acute irritation as a result of razor burn or from mosquito bites are both significantly reduced. Chemically irritated skin also is protected and gently regenerated.
