Nerium SkinCare is dedicated to “evidence-based” product development. Quite simply, the company believes that preclinical and clinical testing of its products is essential prior to the release of a given product to the public. Nerium SkinCare does not rely merely on published work by others, but provides for appropriately designed studies of its own to insure safety and efficacy.
When asked to describe the precautions and protocols that Nerium SkinCare uses to ensure it meets all safety standards, Dr. Robert Newman, scientific advisor to Nerium SkinCare, responded, “Both preclinical and clinical safety testing is performed on Nerium SkinCare
products. Importantly, this is NOT done using animals. Rather, the research relies on in vitro cell culture, as well as actual human clinical studies. The clinical studies are carried out in volunteers, typically using small, defined areas of skin or other target tissue sites, which include additional safety precautions utilizing blood chemistry’s and CBC analysis for each participant. Once safety is assured, larger scale clinical testing and analysis is then done.”
The skincare market is filled with products that have little, if any, evidence-based research behind them. Often, what is saved in terms of research simply goes into marketing. Nerium SkinCare’s philosophy stands in stark contrast to that, as the company will not release any product without safety and evidence-based proof of product performance and efficacy.
The discovery of using Nerium oleander in a skincare capacity was truly accidental. Following this finding, scientific steps were taken to create a product harnessing the power of Nerium oleander. This process included the selection of appropriate product components (such as
aloe), development of innovative technology related to the extraction of Nerium oleander leaves, unique blending of the aloe-based oleander extract into a useful cream-based cosmetic product, safety testing, and preclinical and clinical testing to assure product efficacy and utility.
