Nu Skin Expands Its Scientific Research In Skincare Devices





Research Highlighted at Prestigious Conferences in U.S. and China   


PROVO, Utah — June 19, 2017 — Scientists at Nu Skin Enterprises, Inc. recently presented scientific posters at conferences in the United States and China. The insights presented in the posters are advancing the understanding in the development and efficacy of skin care device technology.  The research was presented at the annual meeting of the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), the Society for Investigative Dermatology, as well as the Cosmetics R&D and Technology conference.  


“These latest novel findings from Nu Skin’s scientists serve to continually transform our skincare device platform so we can bring the best products to market,” said Dr. Joseph Chang, chief scientific officer. “The studies described in the posters are tangible demonstration of our innovative approach in skincare devices so that we can incorporate the best technology into products that provide the best experience and benefits for our customers.”


Unique Sensitive Skin Cleansing Technology

The first poster, which was co-presented by certified dermatologist Dr. Zoe Draelos and Nu Skin Scientist Dr. Dale Kern at the 2017 American Academy of Dermatology Annual Meeting, highlighted a study on individuals with clinically sensitive skin. This study found that a cleansing treatment device with a soft silicone treatment head and counter-rotating action provided both aesthetic improvement and deep cleansing benefits in subjects with sensitive skin after just one use. Furthermore, the study found that these benefits intensify over time with consistent use of the device.


“The research we conducted on individuals with sensitive skin found that the surface of the device cleansing head along with the cleansing motion can make the difference between damaging the skin’s surface or removing facial debris without damaging the skin and creating bumps,” said Dr. Draelos. “Both the clinical assessment and the self-assessment for all participants noted statistically significant improvement in smoothness, softness, pore size, texture and cleansing ability after just seven days of use.”


Optimal Device Frequency and Motion

A second poster detailed a study that examined different frequencies and movements of a cleansing treatment device to determine the precise motion and frequency that promotes skin renewal, revealing smoother, softer skin after just one use. This poster was presented by Dr. Kern to the Society for Investigative Dermatology in Portland, Ore., and similar information was shared at the Cosmetics R&D and Technology conference in China.
