Cosmedix has came out with a new anti aging serum called"Serum 16" A dual retinol rapid renewal compex, this will reverse the signs of aging.
THINK: The new gold standard in anti-aging with NO irritation
WHAT IT IS: The latest encapsulated dual retinol technology from CosMedix In the industry’s first dual retinol anti-aging serum, Serum 16 by CosMedix introduces the most advanced encapsulated delivery system available: LG Retinex. This proprietary technology is proven to deliver higher potency and enhanced efficacy for noticeable skin results.
HOW IT WORKS: LG Retinex uses “intelligent encapsulation” that not only protects ingredients for maximum long-term potency and effectiveness, but also tells the skin to act younger through a supercharged combination of retinol and retinal—creating the most potent form of vitamin A available without a prescription. Retinol and retinal are the golden standards in stimulating the fibroblasts, the cells responsible for the production and synthesis of collagen. These two retinoids play a key role in stimulating and accelerating exfoliation and promoting the cell renewal and rejuvenation.
Serum 16 boasts a full 16% LG Retinex in its formula to provide:
1.Maximum potency. By combining retinol with retinal, Serum 16 is the new gold standard in non-prescription age defiance
.2.Supercharged transport system. Using the best liposomal delivery system available, coupled with glycosaminoglycans to aid in membrane delivery, LG Retinex delivers actives deep into the skin where aging occurs.
3.Supremely stable. CosMedix’s encapsulation protects ingredients from oxidation, for up to twice the efficacy of existing technologies. “It takes two metabolic steps to convert retinol to retinoic acid, the most active form of vitamin A, and only one metabolic step to convert retinal to retinoic acid,” says Noureddine Mriouah, Principal Scientist for Astral Brands. “Among retinoids precursors, retinol and retinal are the nearest to retinoic acid and are likely to match its benefits more closely, yet without irritation, which explains why CosMedix finds it logical to have these two molecules as part of our complex.”
CLINICAL RESULTS: In a six-week clinical trial, Serum 16 visibly reduced the appearance of deep lines, including crow’s feet.
Within two weeks: •88% reported that their skin felt noticeably firmer •100% reported that their skin was softer and smoother in texture Within four weeks: •75% reported that their wrinkles were less apparent •88% reported that their skin was more vibrant, healthy and radiant Within six weeks: •88% reported that their fine lines and wrinkles were visibly diminishing •100% reported that their skin tone was brighter and more even
Within about a week and a half I noticed my skin was looking brighter and more alive. I have yet to notice my crow's feet lines fading, but I think with continued time they will start to dimnish. Cosmedix Serum 16 sells for $78 on the Cosmedix website.
