DRT company (Les Derives Resiniques et Terpeniques) sollicited Dermscan Laboratory in order to assess the cutaneous lightening and anti-ageing effects of a biological extract after 56 days of consumption, in healthy Asian women aged from 46 to 70 years.
Oligomeric proanthocyanidins extracted from the bark of the French maritime pine Pinus pinaster (FMPBE) have been studied for a long time and demonstrated various phytopharmaceutical applications. This study focused on the cutaneous efficacy of the extract through various biometrological evaluations.
This randomized, double-blind, placebo controlled and cross-over study evidenced the safety and efficacy of the 100 mg FMPBE supplementation from 28 days of intake: in comparison to placebo, the skin on pigmentary spots became significantly lighter and less red, skin on the face was more firm and its surface was less wrinkled.
After 56 days of consumption, the skin was additionally significantly more elastic and the yellow constituent of the skin decreased on the normal skin.
Taken together, results obtained by Dermscan proved that FMPBE supplementation can be considered as an innovative approach to skin whitening and anti-ageing treatments. It represents an interesting alternative to topical products and supports the skin from the inside out.
