Escin …. Allergen of the Year candidate??? (or just bad luck)
So about to add Escin to the next iteration of an eye cream I am working on…and was reading through the mfg provided data…. ONLY TO DISCOVER….IN THEIR PROUD FINDINGS…. 15% OF TEST SUBJECTS REACTED TO IT.
The product I will introduce…is Edemine…which is lecithin and Escin. Does lecithin minimize a possible reaction (not logical to me)?
OMG…. was this just bad luck????
Here is a ‘copy and paste’ from the mfg material:
“Cream with 0,5% Escin vs Cream with 0,5% of Edemine®, 20 volunteers for 2 months - daily application.
Note: Three volunteers didn’t finish the Escin cream application due to an allergic reaction.”
I also found studies that oral Escin, helped mitigate allergic responses!?
