  • Long live our skin microbiota!

    RAHN's brand-new active ingredient DEFENSIL®-PURE naturally strengthens the skin's invisible protective layer and creates the conditions for a healthy skin.

    DEFENSIL ® PURE is obtained by high tech fermentation of organic gold millet. It naturally
    balances the skin microbiota, strengthens the skin barrier and moisturises particularly
    dry skin. Furthermore, it improves the complexion, and counteracts atopic eczema.
    Very dry atopic skin suffers constantly from physical damage and a weakened skin barrier. This opens the door for undesired bacteria entering deeper layers of the stratum corneum and releasing toxins. These toxins can activate the inflammasome and caspase-1, leading to severe inflammation and cell death (pyroptosis).
    In-vitro studies have demonstrated that the postbiotic ingredients of DEFENSIL®-PURE are able to effectively inhibit the activation of the inflammasome. DEFENSIL®-PURE promotes the growth of beneficial bacteria on the skin surface and has the potential to supplant undesirable microorganisms. A healthy microbiota will keep the host’s skin in good shape and ensure it maintains a suitable balance.
    Clinical studies have shown that DEFENSIL®-PURE protects atopic skin against further damage and quickly reseals the skin barrier. It effectively rehydrates dry skin and improves the appearance of skin. A modern fermentation process with optimally adjusted parameters results in a greater release of active substances such as minerals in comparison with plain millet extract. DEFENSIL®-PURE is carbon-neutral, IECIC-listed and conform to natural cosmetics.

 Press Releases

  • 2020 BSB Innovation winner in the "Environment" category due for exemplifying the concept of Circular Economy.  REFORCYL®-AION is produced using pumpkin waste from the food industry, and the remaining product is reused as soil fertilizer to nourish the growth of new pumpkins.  The material activates the skin's autophagy system which keeps cells clean and functional.  The result is an overall improvement in skin appearance:  skin barrier, moisture levels and sebum are all improved.

  • Multi-award winning SEBOCLEARTM-MP helps break the cycle of blemished skin by harnessing the flavonoids of the Maclura cochinchinensis plant.  The material optimizes the skin's microbiome, shuts down inflammation and resets the sebocytes to normalize sebum production. As a result, signs of acne are reduced and skin is more even and youthful looking.


  • DEFENSIL®-SOFT - Help your skin chill out
    DEFENSIL®-SOFT contains an extract obtained from wild-picked mushrooms of the Albatrellus family. It acts as a neuro-soother by extending the feel-good zone of stressed and irritated skin.


  • DEFENSIL®-SOFT, 2017 Gold Medal BSB Innovation winner for most Innovative Natural Product, is a neurobalm for sensitive skin.  The active ingredient is based on the edible mushroom Albatrellus ovinus, also called the Northern truffle. The pain receptor TRPV1, which is expressed in the epidermis’ sensory neurons and keratinocytes, regulates the skin’s comfort zone. Elevated levels of TRPV1 may lead to increased skin sensitivity and unpleasant sensations caused by e.g. sunburn or chemical peelings. DEFENSIL®-SOFT blocks the skin's pain receptor TRPV1 and upgrades the skin’s comfort zone. Redness, stinging and burning are noticeably reduced.
