Anti-ageing Cosmetic Clinical Study Services

Anti-ageing clinical trials for cosmetics, anti ageing skin treatments and consumer products by experienced dermatologists delivering scientifically robust human efficacy testing data focused on claim areas such as anti-wrinkle, skin elasticity, skin firmness, hydrating effect and anti-dark spots

Clinical studies for anti-ageing skin care products are vital to prove their effectiveness and safety. Increased awareness around skin care and a growing interest in a more holistic approach towards health and wellness is driving growth in the skin care market where beauty is celebrated at all ages. Consumers are also increasingly interested in prevention rather than treatment of skin ageing. With innovative moisturizers, serums, and other skincare products being developed every year, the anti-aging product market has experienced a shift in not just targeting wrinkles and fine lines but also to optimise products for older skin and target issues such as dry skin, skin firmness, uneven skin tone, hyper-pigmentation and dark circles under eyes. To achieve a market advantage for your age-inclusive or anti-ageing products you need to demonstrate proven effectiveness in order to reassure your target consumer segments. Proven efficacy will set your brand apart. 

Efficacy and Safety of Anti-ageing Skin Care Products Through Robust Clinical Studies

Our dermatological clinical study services, delivered from our facilities in France and China, help you to demonstrate a reparative or anti-ageing effect across a range cosmetic skin care products including creams, lotions, devices, and serums. Our human clinical trials are conducted by trained investigators and are scientifically robust, meeting industry standards whilst providing meaningful evidence on the effects of the consumer product.

Our dermatology experts conduct anti-aging human trials for cosmetics, beauty,  personal care products and consumer devices focusing on the common signs of skin ageing including wrinkles and fine lines, skin sagging or laxity, age spots, dull complexion or dryness.

Working from a risk-based approach; our dermatologists design bespoke study protocols for your product, generating cost-efficient and highly credible clinical trial data which will support your product development or claim substantiation across these anti-aging parameters: anti-wrinkle effect, skin elasticity / firmness, hydrating effect and anti-dark spots / skin brightening /anti-age spots / pigmentation. Our study designs are focused on the product’s mode of action and include appropriate target anti-aging parameters.

Visual anti-ageing assessment by our dermatologists include wrinkles using a photographic scale, assessment of skin sagging, skin laxity, appearance of age spots, pigmentation and skin tone uniformity. We can additionally provide Illustrative photography in standardized conditions (diffused light) with self-perception assessments.

We offer a range of measurement techniques conducted by trained technicians with experience in visual and instrumental measurement and clinical image capture and analysis.

  • Skin replicas and image analysis using Monaderm Quantirides/ Quantilines software (wrinkles (number, length, depth) and cutaneous micro relief analysis)
  • Fringe Projection analysis using Primos (wrinkles and cutaneous micro relief analysis)
  • Photographic acquisitions in standardized conditions and analysis using Visia CR (wrinkles, age spots analysis)
  • Diastron Dermal Torquemeter and Ballistometer (Firmness/Elasticity measurement)
  • Courage + Khazaka Corneometer/ Tewameter (hydration and skin barrier function)

We can perform skin sampling techniques including tape stripping,  D-squame sampling and punch biopsy methods.
