Body care products, which consumers see as a way to take care of themselves, belong to an extremely-innovative industry investing a lot in research and development. This industry is always looking for new trends to launch to the skin care market. These new products come into contact with skin and mucous membranes, so the need for high-quality safety and efficacy testing is always of the essence

One of the most difficult challenges for body care products is to fight the signs of ageing and give our skin a firm and elastic look. For this reason, many efficacy tests on body care products assess their power to stimulate the synthesis of:

  • Collagen: the main protein in connective tissue, with the important function of supporting and nourishing tissues and organs, thus improving the health and elasticity of tendons, bones, and skin,
  • Elastin: the protein responsible for skin elasticity allowing skin to resume its initial condition after stretching or contracting,
  • Fibronectin: the glycoprotein promoting cell adhesion to the extracellular matrix, providing structural support to the tissue.

Focus on: Anti-cellulite Products

Notwithstanding the many body care cosmetic products to reduce the effects of edemato-fibro-sclerotic panniculopathy (commonly referred to as cellulite) that are available on the market, the scientific literature on the effectiveness of these treatments is still a work in progress.

As there is no standardised parameter for clinical efficacy tests on these products yet, there are several ways to quantitatively measure the reduction of cellulite imperfections: efficacy tests are based on indicators such as skin elasticity and compactness, skin roughness, the circumference of the affected area or even a mere visual assessment.

For this reason, Abich – Lifeanalytics, the Group’s Competence Center for Pharma and Cosmetics industries, has introduced the innovative thermographic technique in the clinical studies of its laboratories, in order to guarantee qualitative and quantitative data with an extremely-high clinical-cosmetological value in the evaluation of the stages of cellulite.
