Clinical Studies


Photo-damage protective effect of two facial products, containing a unique complex of Dead Sea minerals and Himalayan actives.

Products

AHAVA Extreme Day Cream

AHAVA Extreme Night Treatment

Trial Design

Wrinkle Treatment: Uncontrolled

Skin Hydration: Controlled

Duration

Wrinkle Treatment: 4 weeks

Skin Hydration: 12 hours

Subjects

Wrinkle Treatment: 20 women aged at least 45 years

Skin Hydration: 10 women aged 19-60 years

Regimen

Wrinkle Treatment: Subjects applied the AHAVA Extreme Day Cream and Night Treatment to their left eye area once daily for 4 weeks.

Skin Hydration: Subjects applied the AHAVA Extreme products to the flexor aspect of one forearm, with the other forearm serving as control.

Methods of Assessment

Measurement of wrinkle depth before and after treatment by the PRIMOS Optical 3D measuring device

Measurement of skin hydration using a Corneometer

Side Effects

Adverse events were recorded and compared between groups, but no further details were given, though it was mentioned that the treatments are safe for use.

Conflicts of Interest

5 of the 10 authors were employees of AHAVA Dead Sea Laboratories.

Effects observed in this study:

Wrinkle treatment: 4 weeks of daily application of the Day Cream yielded a 19.8% reduction in wrinkle depth, whereas the Night Treatment gave a 26.4% decrease over the same time period. Both changes were statistically significant compared to baseline.

Skin hydration: Skin hydration improved by 16-29% relative to the control forearm at various time points up to 12 hours after application for the Day Cream, and by 29-63% for the Night Treatment. The changes were statistically significant for both products at all measured time points.

Ex-vivo experiments: Topical application of both the Day Cream and the Night Treatment markedly reduced the enhancement of pro-apoptotic caspase-3 activity normally induced by UVB irradiation, by 60% and 80% respectively, compared to untreated samples. Further, the Day Cream reduced the UVB-induced secretion of the pro-inflammatory cytokine TNF-α by 80%, while the Night Treatment completely abolished its secretion. The increase in MMP-1 activity following UVB irradiation was also diminished by the application of both preparations.
