Previous items on the Arubix Anti-Redness products only referenced the abstract of a study trialling the main active ingredient: Chrysanthellum Indicum. Recently Sicobel, the makers of Arubx have published the full text of the journal article:
The Chrysanthelleum indicum contained in the cream on trial is reported to possess vitamin P properties, which has been found to be of possible interest in reducing or preventing vascular disorders, and specifically microcirculation disorders involved in erythema of rosacea.In this trial, the Chrysanthelleum indicum-containing cream was more effective than the placebo in reducing the erythema of rosacea. In addition, it seems that, even though the cream on trial was applied for an extended period of time (12 weeks), it was fairly safe and well tolerated by the patients.
The list of active ingredients are: Golden Camomile – Chrysanthellum Indicum (Sicobel patented), Solomon’s Seal, Cypress Liquorice Extract, Mimosa Tenuiflora, Arnica, Borage Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Shea Butter
Interesting to note that it also contains liquorice (or licorice) extract. This has been a topic of interest with the release of the Eucerin Redness Relief product range that also contains a licorice extract.
So far the online rosacea community is only beginning to try the new Arubix products. Here is an encouraging start from a member of the Rosacea Forum.
Blue Note, Posted: Sat Feb 11, 2006 5:45 pmIt’s been almost three weeks now and I’m starting to see results. Permanent redness is down between 10-20% and I’m less prone to have a flush. When I do, it doesn’t seem as intense. So maybe this stuff does work! I’m still using it as directed, twice a day. I’ll continue the updates.

This cream is definitely working for me. I haven’t had a bad flush in about a week. When I would normally feel a flush coming on, about half the time it turns into a hardcore flush, but lately it’s been keeping under control rather nicely. So far I am very pleased with this product. More updates to come.

I never got around to ordering a second tube of Arubix. Honestly, my flushing has been so good for a few months that I don’t think i need it. For now, at least.
Anyone still using this stuff? I want to reiterate that I highly recommend it. I’m curious to see how others have done.
