Alabaster is the finest and most delicate stone for creating sculptures. Women of the baroque period were striving for alabaster-like skin as it was considered as a beauty ideal and as a synonym for even, flawless, radiant skin with a velvety look.
According to recent findings RAHN’s LIFTONIN ® provides alabaster-like skin. The active ingredient combines astringent tannic acid from oak gallnuts and a millet extract (Panicum miliaceum), which is rich in bioavailable botanical silicon derivatives such as orthosilicic acid.
In several new in-vitro studies RAHN has investigated LIFTONIN ® ‘s properties to reinforce the dermal fibre network as prerequisite for alabaster-like skin. According to new in-vivo data the active ingredient improves skin texture and structure and provides a more even complexion and improved radiance. If applied on Asian skin which is very susceptible to an impaired skin complexion due to the development of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation LIFTONIN ® leads to a more even skin tone.
LIFTONIN ® is not only suitable for anti-ageing products, but also for nail care: after 4 months of application the silicon content in fingernails increases by 183 %.
