PERFELINE®-FIT is obtained by means of water-based extraction of Helichrysum italicum syn angustifolium. It contains chlorogenic acid and di-O-caffeoylquinic acids, which are used to reinforce the plant’s capillary system. We used this in a biomimetic way to strengthen the micro-vessels in human skin. PERFELINE®-FIT inhibits nitric oxide synthase, responsible for the generation of the strong vasodilator nitric oxide.
Clinical studies have shown that PERFELINE®-FIT significantly reduces the visibility of puffy eyes and spider veins. It smoothes and soothes the skin by reducing the microcirculation. It even counteracts an increase in the microcirculation on exposure to heat stress, thus reducing redness of the face.
HAIRVIVINE®-PRO is a water-based extract derived from the seeds of the Styrian pumpkin Cucurbita pepo var. styriaca. It contains valuable nutrients in the form of amino acids and carbohydrates that support the physiological functioning of hair follicles.
Clinical studies have shown that HAIRVIVINE®-PRO improves the density of hair per cm2 and reduces hair loss. Furthermore, it stimulates eyelash and eyebrow growth. HAIRVIVINE®-PRO leads to an improvement of numerous eye appearance parameters assessed on the basis of subjective perception and visual inspection.
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 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.
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.
