Brief Summary:
To determine the effect of Activation Mist (AM) on skin wrinkles and appearance.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Skin Wrinkles on Face and Neck Areas Other: Activation Mist Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
This study aims to study the effects of Activation Mist ( AM) on skin wrinkles. It contains a proprietary blend of minerals and nutritional supplements which is patented as "Liquidized Infrared Negative Ion Activation Energy". Active ingredients include sodium bicarbonate, potassium bicarbonate, sodium carbonate, strontium carbonate, gold nanoparticles, calcium, germanium, selenium , zinc, sugar and water. When applied to the skin , it has been shown to reduce the appearance of wrinkles by stimulation of skin fibroblasts to produce new collagen while removing aging dermis cells, facilitate the production of fibrillin proteins and protect the skin from ultraviolet rays.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 60 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Quadruple (Participant, Care Provider, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Double-Blind, Randomized, Placebo-controlled Study to Compare the Efficacy and Safety of Rena ™ Activation Mist on Facial Skin Wrinkles.
Study Start Date : November 2013
Estimated Primary Completion Date : June 2014
Estimated Study Completion Date : August 2014

Arm Intervention/treatment
Active Comparator: Activation Mist
Liquid mist preparation to be sprayed topically on wrinkle areas
Other: Activation Mist
Activation Mist topical spray
Other Name: AM

Placebo Comparator: Placebo
sugar pill
Other: Activation Mist
Activation Mist topical spray
Other Name: AM




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Silicone skin replica analysis [ Time Frame: before and after 8 weeks of treatment ]
    Silflo ™ vinyl silicone ( Cuderm Corp.) is applied to the skin areas to be studied and replicas obtained after letting it stand for 3- 5 minutes. The replica technique takes a negative copy of the skin surface which is analyzed by optical profilometry. Optical profilometry ( BioNet Inc.) uses light intensity to assess skin wrinkle texture by objective parameters ( e.g. spacing, breadth, shadows, num wrinkles) This will be performed before and after 8 weeks of treatment.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Wrinkle Score [ Time Frame: every week for 8 weeks ]
    A blinded evaluation will assess wrinkle appearance and grade on a scale of 0 to 5

  2. Photographic evaluation [ Time Frame: weekly for 8 weeks ]
    A blinded evaluator will assess photographs of wrinkles and evaluate presence or absence of improvement
