RAHN-Cosmetic Actives

MYRAMAZE®-ESSENCE - Make your skin shine with all your senses

MYRAMAZE®-ESSENCE is a sensocosmetics active ingredient that revives and vitalises the skin. It reinstates the skin’s natural radiance and relaxes skin and mind.

Stressed and dehydrated skin can look sallow and dull. If you are also in a depressed mood, this has an additional negative effect on the appearance of your skin. MYRAMAZE®-ESSENCE revitalises the skin with the help of all the senses: its scent compounds can lighten the mood even at low-threshold concentrations. There is an effect on bitter taste receptors in the skin, thus reinvigorating it and returning it to a healthy state. Skin becomes relaxed and luminous.

RADICARE®-ECO - The urban antidote for hair and scalp

RADICARE®-ECO is produced using extracts of a medicinal plant with well-known calming effects – lemon balm (Melissa officinalis) – and tender young shoots of barley grass (Hordeum distichon), while it also contains bio-technologically produced α-glucosyl hesperidin. This sophisticated blend of three natural and very powerful antioxidants protects scalp and hair against deleterious urban airborne particulate matter and UV.

DEFENSIL®-SOFT - Helps your skin to chill out

DEFENSIL®-SOFT contains an extract obtained from wildpicked mushrooms of the Albatrellus family. It acts as a neuro-soother by extending the feel-good zone of stressed and irritated skin.

Clinical studies have shown that DEFENSIL®-SOFT instantly soothes irritated skin and prevents the development of sensitive skin after irritation in just a few minutes. It extends the skin’s feel-good zone by augmenting the pain threshold and reducing the perception of the stinging and burning effects that occur, for example, in association with sunburned skin. DEFENSIL®-SOFT rapidly suppresses skin microcirculation and skin reddening.

LIFTONIN®-QI - For a skin in harmony and balance

LIFTONIN®-QI is a water-based extract obtained from the fungus Ganoderma lucidum, an ingredient that has long been used in traditional Chinese medicine. It protects the skin from epigenetic stress to promote a youthful and relaxed skin appearance.

Clinical studies have shown that LIFTONIN®-QI has superior lifting effects and generates a more positive facial expression. LIFTONIN®-QI strengthens the dermis as well as the epidermis, increases skin elasticity and improves the overall appearance of the skin.

Application Lab

The two cosmetic laboratories in Zurich (CH) and London (UK) were created mainly for the technical support of the RAHN sales crew.

Due to many years of developmental experiences with both our own and other Cosmetic raw materials, increasingly customised developments are created alongside official formulations.

Meanwhile, the primarily formulation-oriented laboratory has evolved into a flexible and comprehensive service pool. Also provided are additional services such as: phone consultancy for new developments or developmental problems, product samples, dosage, marketing claim proposition and manufacture regulation.
