Comparison of epidermal cell proliferation produced by SESHA SKIN THERAPY A.C.E. Cream containing PET™ delivery system with Retin-A Cream (0.025%) and Oil of Olay Original Beauty Fluid.
PROTOCOL AND STUDY PARAMETERS:
7-day in-vivo study
- The A.C.E Cream significantly thickened the epidermis. The skin is plump and has characteristics of young, healthy skin.
- Retin-A 0.025% produced a slight increase of skin cells, but the epidermis is damaged.
- Oil of Olay did not show signs of cell proliferation.
Biopsies stained with hematoxylin and eosin at 400x magnification show that A.C.E. Cream is an effective stimulator of epidermal cells.
Study conducted by Peter T. Pugliese, M.D.
