Efficacy of anti-pollution ingredient shown in study
Lipotec Active Ingredients has performed a new clinical test in Milan, Italy, that demonstrates the efficacy of its anti-pollution ingredient.

Pollushield is a functional ingredient in lighting facial dark spots and improving skin dullness, according to the company, composed of a combination of a polymer with metal chelating properties and a potent free radical scavenger.

Lipotec says that the ingredient can help prevent accumulation of pollution particles in the epidermis and replenish the skin with antioxidants, increasing its capacity to resist the harm caused by heavy metals, particulate matter (PM) and other harmful elements found in big cities and other polluted areas.

Lipotec says the efficacy of the ingredient in lightening facial dark spots and improving skin dullness has been recently proven in its recent clinical test.

Proving efficacy

The test involved 20 female volunteers between 43-69 years old with dark spots and dull complexion.

The participants each applied a cream containing 2% ingredient on half face and a placebo cream on the other half, twice a day, and spent 2-3 hours a day in the traffic.

After 14 days of treatment facial dark spots, a visible manifestation of pollution damage, became lighter and skin dullness was reversed, giving a brighter complexion to the skin.

In addition, the participants were responded to a self-assessment evaluation questionnaire, with the majority confirming perceived changes in facial glow and a smoother skin.


Lipotec functional ingredient can be included in cosmetic formulations seeking to provide daily anti-pollution care as well as in anti-aging products to protect skin that is sensitive or more vulnerable to ambient contaminants.
