Flexoprin Cream - Consumer Evaluation

The application test of the Flexoprin Cream was performed in home conditions on a group of 25 subjects – women aged 30 to 67 years old. The subjects were qualified for the test by a doctor who took into account the following factors: age, type of skin and skin problems, the usage of cosmetics and their tolerance, as well as the subjects' intellectual capacities required to correctly evaluate the product and fill out the questionnaire. Furthermore, in order to perform a natural comparative test, subjects who had been using cosmetic creams were qualified for the test. Considering the cream usage the additional factor used for qualifying the subjects for the test was the presence of variety of numerous joint pains and diseases. The applicants group characterized different type of skin; normal, oily, dry and complex skin. The majority of applicants had allergic and atopic skin with sensitive skin.

The Flexoprin Cream was applied once a day for the period of 3 weeks, more often in the evenings after washing and drying skin by gently circular massage motion. Some of the applicants used the cream 2 or 3 times a day due to comfort feeling after the cream application. Besides usage of the Flexoprin Cream neither additional creams nor ointments were applied to the same part of skin as investigated preparation was applied.
