Why our skin agesScientists talk of two main reasons for aging skin; genetic heritage and external influences such as smoking, stress, sunlight and ultraviolet rays (UV radiation). UV radiation causes around 90 per cent of the skin's age changes. When UV radiation meets the skin, oxidised substances are formed called free radicals, which damage the skin tissues. When we are young our skin cells are changed every 21 to 40 days, but as we get older the renewal speed slows down to roughly half of that. The skin can repair most damage caused by the free radicals itself, but with time the cells do not receive enough energy to enable them to function effectively. The collagen that helps the skin maintain its elasticity is broken down and the sun causes the skin to stretch, thus making it slacker. The skin gradually loses its elasticity and fresh tone and becomes more uneven with bags under the eyes, coarse pores, fine lines and wrinkles.
Clinical testing of QAL-100The clinical trial lasted a total of twelve weeks. The human guinea pigs were given two coded (labelled right and left respectively) but in every other respect identical tubes at the start of the trial. One tube (the placebo creme) was used on one side of the face. The other tube (QAL-100) was used on the other side of the face. Neither the trial direction nor the human guinea pigs knew which tube contained what. The results were measured using four different methods: clinical assessment, photographic evaluation, self estimates and laser profilometry (a method that measures the depth of wrinkles in the skin with the aid of a silicon moulding compound and laser technology).
Results from the study
After three months the following could be
• The wrinkle depth decreased on average by 51%
• The skin regained vigor and luster
• Reduced pore size
• The bags under the eyes reduced
The results were measured using four different methods.
Specifies the percentage improvement over baseline.
At the clinical assessment valued the impact of eleven
using different dimensions:
1) Fine lines 2) Deep lines 3) Pigmentation 4) Pore size 5) Under-eye bags and puffiness 6) Visible dryness 7) Skin thickness 8) Skin elasticity 9) Skin lustre 10) Uneven structures identified by touch 11) Telangiectasia
The test supervisor evaluated the appearance of the skin, using a scale of nine and according to the aforementioned criteria, at the start of the test period and on four separate occasions during the test period which the last was after twelve weeks.
In the photographic evaluation the effect was evaluated according
to the first five criteria used in the clinical evaluation.
The photography was completed by a Swedish photographer specialising in skin photography. The same equipment, lighting and placing was used at the beginning of the test and at the end of the test.
The photographs were examined by the test supervisor using magnifying equipment.
Laser profilometryIn the self evaluation the test subjects evaluated the effect according to the same criteria employed by the test supervisor in the clinical evaluation.
Documented effects after 3 months
After 3 months, effect like this were shown on the test subjects.
Laser profilometryThe structure of the skin (above all, the depth of the wrinkles) was measured objectively using laser profilometry. A silicon imprint of the same area of skin was made at the start of the test and at the end of the test. The imprints were made of an area from the side of the eyes to a fixed point at the ears on both sides of the face. A special laser measured the distance between a number of points on the imprints and then compared them. Such an advanced technique allowed a completely objective comparison. Considerable improvement was shown in all test subjects.
Except QAL-100 the Eye Lift Serum also includes Eyeseryl:Eyeseryl is a peptide composed of four natural amino acids which counters the loss of hydration and elasticity in your skin and can reduce accumulated fluids and fat. Eyeseryl also includes stem cells from apple, which slow aging and increase the vitality in the skin’s own stem cells. Eyeseryl and stem cells which have both been clinically tested.
The first three measuring methods showed very good results from the treatment with Jabushe. These results were confirmed by the fourth method (laser profilometry) that showed a 51% reduction on average of wrinkles around the eyes after three months use. In the light of these observations it can be stated that Jabushe with the formula QAL-100 is a breakthrough in attempts to find an effective treatment for age related skin problems.
