The aim of all the strategies, which interact with the lipid metabolism, is to reduce the volume of adipose tissue.This can be achieved by preventing the formation of adipocytes, suppressing lipogenesis or stimulating lipolysis. Activation ofthe microcirculation encourages drainage of the tissue by means of the lymphatic system and accelerates the removal of fattyacids by the vascular system. The cosmetics market has shown an increased demand for natural and plant-based slimmingsubstances. Using RAHN’s knowledge and expertise, some of the candidates that showed the best prospects of success werecombined, further developed and tested in terms of their potential.
