Rahn publishes new data : LIFTONIN® provides alabaster-like flawless skin

H&PC Today

LIFTONIN®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 %.
