New oat derived ingredient set to innovate anti-ageing market

excerpt from above link:
4/26/2007 - Expanding on its expertise in the anti-aging market, France based ingredients provider Silab has launched a new ingredient that is hoped to further establish its presence within the lucrative market sector.

Deriving the main sugar ingredient from oats, Osilift is tapping into the trend for anti-aging ingredients that are sourced from natural environments and that create an immediate lifting effect, whilst also providing long-term preventative action.

The ingredient is said to firm the appearance of the skin through a high molecular weight network of sugars that are linked by intra and inter-chains hydrogen bonds, which adhere to the surface of the skin in a 'lifting' film.

The company said that when tested on untrained and trained volunteers, 86 per cent of the untrained participants reported a 'significant tensor effect' after 30 minutes when applied at 4 per cent in a gel formulation.

In anti-wrinkle terms, a profilometry study found that two hours after application there was a 64 per cent reduction of the number of wrinkles, the length of the wrinkles and the wrinkle surface - with a 28-day period of twice daily application showing a long term anti-wrinkle effect in 67 per cent of volunteers.

not sure I am putting this in the right place.

well, I remember using oatmeal baths when my son had chickenpox! maybe I should take one myself!!

I don't know if anyone knows but applying a hair gel on face has a 'significant tensor effect' also.

My advice: don't go for a hype in some dubious cosmetics magazine. Look for serious double blind studies NOT from the manifacturer. The cosmetics market is full of 'anti-ageing' ingredients that according to their manifacturers are nothing short of 'miracle'. According to the actual consumers though, a miracle in a jar hasn't been observed yet.
