history form. Subjects declining to sign any of the forms will be dismissed from the study.
Subjects will be enrolled on the basis of the subject selection criteria. Subjects failing to
meet criteria will be dismissed from the study.
Enrolled subjects will begin the washout period. Subjects will receive SilcSkin Cleanser or a
neutral soap (Neutrogena) to use exclusively on their décolleté during the washout period
and study duration.
Subjects will be given specific instructions to discontinue usage of their current personal
care products (e.g. cleansers, lotions, creams, serums) on the test site for the duration of the

Using a pearl size of cleanser, lightly lather in hands and apply to décolleté, massaging with
gentle, circular motions. Rinse well with lukewarm water and pat dry with a soft towel. Once
the skin is completely dry, apply the décolleté pads. Décolleté pads should be worn at night
while sleeping for a minimum of 6 hours. Gently remove in the morning.
The pads themselves must be washed at least once during the week of the test (especially if
the pads start to not stick as well because of exfoliated skin cells, lint, or debris on the pads).
A small pearl amount of cleanser should be applied to the pad and worked into a lather. Rinsethoroughly with warm water, allow to air dry in a clean area.
Upon arrival at BioScreen Clinical Services (BCS) the test product will be assigned a unique
laboratory code number and entered into a daily log identifying the lot number, sample
description, sponsor, date received and tests requested. Each individual sample of the
test product will be weighed before and after use by the subject. This information will be
recorded on the test product log-in form. Samples will be retained for a period of 30 days
beyond submission of final report. Sample disposition will be conducted in compliance with
appropriate federal, state and local ordinances.


Test products that have been reviewed and approved for use by the Regulatory and Safety
representatives of Calvet Cosmetics will be tested. A sufficient quantity of samples of the
above test product to allow for 8 subjects to use for the entire study duration will be received
from Calvet Cosmetics prior to start of the study.


Under conditions of the study a total of 8 healthy female subjects, 49-64 years of age,
completed the clinical study, evaluating the effectiveness of test products: SilcSkin Cleanser
and Decollette Pad, to improve skin conditions based on consumer perception.

Silicone products have been clinically proven to be one of the most effective at-home scar
treatments available for various scar types. These include hypertrophic, keloid, acne, and burn
scars, as well as surgical scars, such as those from a cesarean delivery. SilcSkin uses medical-
grade silicone sheeting on wrinkles and fine lines. The wrinkles therefore are effectively
treated as scars. The silicone used by SilcSkin in the manufacture of their pads has been
refined using a platinum curing process. This method of production removes the residue that’s
typically left behind after silicone has been processed, leaving behind 100% pure silicone.

SilcSkin pads work by the science of occlusion. An occlusive prevents evaporative water loss
by placing a substance on the skin surface that water cannot penetrate through. When the
silicone pads are applied to the treatment area, it creates an environment that super-hydrates
the area underneath the pad by replenishing the moisture by water moving from the lower
viable epidermal and dermal layers. The skin’s natural moisture is increased and plumps the
epidermis, reducing the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, crepey skin, and scars.
