LUMINESCINE is the first natural active ingredient for cosmetics based on luminescence. Its phytocomplex is able to protect the skin from harmful high energy UV radiation, transforming it into a source of light that radiates directly from the skin and hair making them looking shinier, younger and healthier.

The skin radiance variation was measured by comparing the effect of a simple gel formulation containing LUMINESCINE 3% w/w with the effect delivered by a placebo. Data showed a mean increase of the L parameter of 5.5 units vs. placebo after just one application; a clear increase of skin radiance was therefore delivered by LUMINESCINE.

To assess the effect of LUMINESCINE in hair care applications, several ex vivo tests were performed on virgin hair swatches. The increase of L values recorded vs. placebo (up to +10.3 units) was directly related in a dose-dependent way to the efficacy of the treatment used in delivering the active ingredient to the hair surface.
