Clinical Test on sunburns
Alpine Camp on the Mont Blanc
Altitude 2600 meters
Tested Persons (14 participants):
Instructors of French Alpine Club
Responsability of tests:
Medical unit of the camp : 3 doctors
Age of the tested persons :
Instructors from 30 to 36 years old
Guides from 30 to 40 years old
Trainees from 20 to 25 years old
The skin of the guides and instructors is dry, thick and slightly wrinkled.
Kind of injuries:
The injuries are superficial skin lesions caused by overexposure to ultraviolet rays encountered at high altitude. The lesions were aggravated by the climate, time spent on the glaciers, wind and extreme cold at high altitude.
The lesions are characterized by sun rashes, possibly with blister and/or desquamation (peeling of skin).
The Regenerative Cream VITACREME B12 was applied on all persons suffering from skin lesions.
After several days of application of VITACREME B12 the obtained results were :
Persons with light burns and dry skins :
• Rapid normalization, skin becomes more supple, desquamation stopped.
• Feeling of burn rapidly eased, suntan improvement, epidermal moisture level re-established.
Persons with signs of burnt skin, wrinkled and peeling :
• Gradual improvement in skin smoothness
• Reduction of wrinkles, desquamation stopped, burns soothed
Persons who had applied in advance VITACREME B12 for prevention :
• The treated areas remained soft and moist.
• No desquamation.
By the applicaton of VITACREME B12 a considerable reduction and/or rapid improvement of the lesions caused by ultra-violet rays was found.
