Tighter Skincare and Cellulite Reduction

There is exciting research linking the use of Raspberry ketones (RK) to tighter skin and improving skin elasticity. Since sensory neurons release calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) on activation, the topical application of capsaicin creates tighter skin and increases facial skin elasticity by increasing dermal insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) production through activation of sensory neurons in mice and humans.

Raspberry ketone (RK), a major aromatic compound contained in red raspberries (Rubus idaeus), has a structure similar to that of capsaicin. Thus, it is possible that Raspberry ketone (RK) activates sensory neurons, thereby creating tighter skin and increasing skin elasticity by increasing dermal IGF-I production. In a study, the possibility of this was examined in mice and humans.

Topical application of 0.01% Raspberry ketone (RK) increased dermal IGF-I levels at 30 min after application in WT mice, but not in CGRP-knockout mice. Topical application of 0.01% Raspberry ketone (RK) increased immunohistochemical  expression of IGF-I.   When applied topically to facial skin, 0.01% Raspberry ketone (RK)  increased cheek skin elasticity at 2 weeks after application in 5 females (p < 0.04). These observations strongly suggest that Raspberry ketone (RK) might increase dermal IGF-I production through sensory neuron activation,  thereby increasing skin elasticity.
