Check your eligibility here

If you’re a female with pigmentation and visible signs of ageing, you could help research an anti-aging skin serum.

Thank you for your interest in RDC Clinical’s new study, into a topical serum containing grape seed extract. Grape seed extract contains oligomeric proanthocyanidin complexes (OPC) which are known for their free radical scavenging and antioxidant activity. OPCs have previously been shown to demonstrate anti-inflammatory actions and an ability to inhibit lipid peroxidation, capillary permeability and fragility.

Help assess an anti-aging facial serum

If you’re a woman aged between 30 – 50 years old with pigmentation and visible signs of aging, and otherwise healthy, you could help us with this study and have access to an anti-aging facial serum. Once enrolled you’ll be asked to attend our clinic in Newstead, Brisbane, for an initial interview where you will complete baseline questionnaires, undergo skin assessment and have facial photographs taken.

You will then be given the study serum and asked to apply a small amount to your face morning and night. You will be required to use the product for 4 weeks before coming back into our Newstead clinic for the final appointment. At your week 4 appointment, you will also be given an additional bottle of serum as a thank you for your participation. 

If you’d like to take part in this study, we’d love your help. More information is below, the eligibility & registration form is on this page.
