Skingain™

Firming the skin, reducing wrinkles, fine lines and stretch marks.

Skingain™ is a novel food supplement designed to slow the signs of skin aging and to improve skin complexion.

Skingain™ contains a unique combination of collagen type I and II that helps build the collagen contents of the skin, improve skin elasticity and keep the moisture of the skin.

Administration form: Powder to be dissolved in water or other liquid. (Sachets of 1 dose each)

 

Skin and Skin Aging

The major components of the dermis are collagen, elastin and glycosaminoglycans In addition the dermis contain fibroblast cells, macrophages and adipocytes. Rejuvenation of the skin takes place in the lower levels of the skin (dermis), while the outer layers mostly consist of dead skin cells that are gradually shed.

From the age of about 25 the body’s own ability to develop collagen starts dropping and skin rejuvenation is slowing. This results in gradual wrinkling of the skin, lack of flexibility and skin that is more prone to dry out.

Exposure to sun and wind, smoking, unhealthy eating habits and stress may speed up skin aging. Creams, ointments and other topical (non-medical) treatment may help protect the skin, but do in only few cases help against the underlying causes of skin aging. Peeling and other chemical, topical treatment may help by removing the outer layers of the skin, but do not improve the condition of the lower levels of the skin.

In order to secure healthy, beautyful skin over time, the dermal cells need replenishment of the nutrients that form their building blocks.

SkingainTM Efficacy Study

48 women between the age of 30 and 65 participated in a study on SkingainTM over 12 weeks in 2011. Collagen content in the dermis and elastisity was measured at week 0, 4, 8 and 12. Visual assessment by skin expert and pictures were taken at week 0, 8 and 12.

The measurements of skin collagen content and elasticity was conducted with DermaLab® Combo Skinlab. Dr. Roald Strand assisted the study as advisor.

Participants took 2 sachets of SkingainTM per day in combination with Oxytarm®

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Graph 1 (left): The collagen content of the skin increased by 45 % in the course of 3 months treatment.

Graph 2 (right): 67 % of participants showed increased collagen contents already after 1 month's use of SkingainTM. 87 % after 3 months.

 

 

Success cases

Heidi Virik (38) and Hanne Haavelmoen (43) both participated in the efficacy study on SkingainTM. They are both very pleased with the results they noticed after just 12 weeks.
