JOHNSTON, IOWA, Nov. 7, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Topical use of BiovaDerm®, a water soluble egg membrane (WSEM) ingredient, was shown to reduce the appearance of wrinkles after just eight weeks according to recently published peer-reviewed research. BiovaDerm is manufactured in the United States by Biova LLC.
The open-label study published in Clinical, Cosmetic and Investigational Dermatology (DovePress; 14 October 2016 Volume 2016:9 Pages 357-66) showed daily topical use of BiovaDerm on facial skin significantly reduced the appearance of wrinkles after eight weeks, as measured across three parameters: roughness, contour and depth. This study corroborates results seen in Biova's prior trial research studies. Further, the researchers point to WSEM's association with additional mechanisms of cellular activity whereby BiovaDerm might offer natural skin health support and restoration, especially under conditions of oxidative stress, thus contributing to prophylactic anti-aging effects among other applications.
