Efficacy of anti-aging products

Both intrinsic and extrinsic factors are responsible for the aging of the skin. The changes associated with the aging process of the skin are varied: The epidermis becomes thin and the collagen content of the dermis decreases as well as the fat content and elasticity. The subcutaneous tissue loses volume. On the surface, old skin appears wrinkled, irregularly pigmented, dry and limp. Dark circles around the eyes, swollen lower eyelids and other features are also known indicators of the skin aging process. The determination of the efficacy of an anti-aging product can therefore be based on a number of different parameters. The study design should be focused precisely on the mode of action of your product and take into account the appropriate target parameters.

We don’t want to set limits to your drive for research! From the classic anti-wrinkle efficacy study, to the demonstration of the most innovative parameters, such as water mobility or papilla index to the global, multi-parametric investigation of skin aging in the face – we are happy to assist you with a variety of approaches in efficacy testing.
