Phosphagenics develops high quality body care and skin care products under the brand name BioElixia®, and through various strategic brand partners including GNC’s Total Lean® skin care range and Le Métier de Beaute’s Peau Vierge® skin care range. Our consumer health products, based on over 10 years of scientific research and development, offer innovative solutions for modern women who want personal care products that actually work. Our strategy for developing products is simple: we select the most powerful active ingredients available to the skin care industry, and then deliver them into the skin to where they are needed most with our patented TPM® Delivery Technology. Our scientists have developed a range of breakthrough anti-aging, anti-cellulite, anti-stretch mark products that are reinventing what is possible in the consumer health industry.

Unlike most other personal care products, which sit on the surface of the skin, scientific testing shows that TPM® Delivery Technology absorbs further into the skin. Vitamin E in Phosphagenics’ skin care products is in the form of tocopheryl phosphate, while Vitamin E in other brands’ skin care products is in the form of tocopheryl acetate. Figure 1 shows that the TPM® absorbs up to 4x greater than tocopheryl acetate into the epidermis, and up to 9x greater into the dermis. What this means is that TPM® enhances the delivery of active cosmetic ingredients into the skin. The result is that key ingredients in each BioElixia® product are delivered deeper into the skin’s layers, where they are needed most, resulting in smoother, firmer, younger looking skin. Figure 2 shows results comparing the absorption of key skin care ingredients in formulations with TPM® and without TPM® (Franz Cell in vitro testing on human skin):

Our lead body care products are our two targeted solution formulations: BioElixia BodyShaper® Cellulite Contour Crème for targeting cellulite, and BioElixia BodyShaper® Stretch Mark Diminishing Crème for targeting stretch marks. In 2010, in vitro studies showed that the absorption of skin care active ingredients in formulations with TPM® and without TPM® (Franz Cell in vitro testing on human skin) differed significantly. TPM® delivered up to 5 times* more forskolin (which helps optimize the appearance of skin tone) into the skin, and up to 2.5 times* more caffeine (which provides a visible toning effect to the appearance of skin) into the skin.

In 2012, a consumer study conducted by AMA Laboratories Inc. (USA) showed statistically significant results from scientifically validated photogrammetric analysis of 5 women using the BioElixia BodyShaper® Cellulite Contour Crème at 28 days and 56 days. The study showed that the formulation reduces the appearance of cellulite by an average of 38% after 4 weeks of use and an average of 57% after 8 weeks of use. That same study showed a 40% average improvement in skin hydration, using Corneometer® measurements on 30 women after 4 weeks of use (53% after 8 weeks of use), as well as a 10% improvement in skin elasticity, using Cutometer measurements on 30 women, after 8 weeks of use.

In 2013, a consumer study conducted by AMA Laboratories Inc. (USA) showed statistically significant results from scientifically validated photogrammetric analysis of 10 women using the BioElixia BodyShaper® Stretch Mark Diminishing Crème at 28 days and 56 days. The study showed that the formulation reduces the appearance of stretch marks by an average of 46% after 4 weeks of use and an average of 87% after 8 weeks of use. That same study showed an average decrease in skin surface roughness, using Visioscan images, of 8% after 4 weeks of use and 12% after 8 weeks of use.
