Study 3

OBJECTIVE:

Research the effectiveness of Super C Serum and A.C.E. PLUS Cream in reducing fine lines and improving skin texture

VARIABLE:

Super C Serum and A.C.E. PLUS Cream

SUBJECTS:

Six females, between the ages of 37 and 58. All were free of skin diseases as determined by medical history. All showed signs of fine lines and wrinkles as well as redness and/or hyper-pigmentation in the form of freckles or age spots.

PROCEDURE:

This was a 12 week study during which all subjects were instructed to apply Super C Serum over the “crows feet” area around the eyes first, followed by applying A.C.E. PLUS Cream over the entire face. Subjects repeated this in the morning and at nighttime and were evaluated on day 1, week 6 and week 12.

The following parameters were used to measure the performance of the creams: photographs, clinical assessments, silastic castings, and biopsies for histological examinations.

CONCLUSION:

  • Biopsies among those who used Super C Serum and A.C.E. PLUS Cream indicate proliferation in the epidermis and an increase of collagen in the dermis.
  • Castings of lines and wrinkles taken periodically throughout the study show a reduction in the depth and length of wrinkles.
  • All subjects had a marked reduction in redness and an overall improvement in skin tone and elasticity.
