SALT LAKE CITY, Sept. 14, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- ASEA, an emerging global leader in cellular health, today announced findings from a skin study conducted by leading dermatological research institute Dermatest. The study showed that RENU 28® skin gel effectively improves the appearance of cellulite as a result of the reduction of the size of adipose lobules. Additionally, the study showed significant improvement in skin elasticity.
In the study, 30 females aged 18 or older who had cellulite used RENU 28 twice a day for a 12 week period. In the cellulite test area, the use of ultrasound measurement showed improvement in the thickness and density of the skin. The measurements were performed in the same position and at the same sites before and after the 12 week in-use-period. The participants experienced a reduction of 15.81 percent in the appearance of cellulite, with the reduction in size of adipose lobules after the application period of 12 weeks.
"While other treatments for cellulite employ inflammation and the use of fillers for a temporary effect, RENU 28 works with the body's natural cellular communication to actually reduce the adipose lobules," said Charles F. Funke, ASEA Chief Executive Officer.
In the second test area, RENU 28 showed an increase in both the elasticity and hydration of the skin, both of which result in improved function and appearance of the skin. After the 12 weeks, researchers used a Cutometer sensor to measure the results and saw that the participants had an increase of 20.91 percent in skin elasticity. This is important given that with age, our skin loses its elasticity, or ability to bounce back to shape upon stretch, which results in the appearance of wrinkles.
"RENU 28 is active in redox signaling molecules that can be applied directly onto the skin to improve and revitalize it at the cellular level from the outside in," said Dr. Karen Stolman, M.D. a board certified dermatologist. "These studies further validate the essential benefits of cellular health."
The study was conducted by researchers from the Dermatest GmbH Institute for Reliable Results.
