In order to test the in vitro efficacy of Striover, two different formats were used: dermal fibroblasts isolated from white stretch marks and Provital’s exclusive 3D reconstructed skin, with fibroblasts from white stretch marks and normal keratinocytes. Results confirmed that Striover “awakens” the fibroblasts.
Afterwards, an in vivo study was carried out to test the efficacy of Striover. To check the reduction and improvement in stretch marks, using different techniques, stretch mark perimeter, area, roughness, elasticity, firmness, anisotropy and redness were measured. Results show how Striover reduces the appearance of stretch marks, even white ones, after only 28 days.
Activating the fibroblasts has other nice secondary effects such as improving skin texture, firmness, elasticity and reducing redness, said the company.
