Ultra Rejuvenex® is a youth-promoting face cream that contains green and white tea extracts, along with many other beneficial nutrients for the skin. Scientific studies reveal that tea extracts promote healthy-looking skin.
For example, studies showed that green tea promotes younger looking skin by protecting skin against oxidative stress.1-5 Topical application with green tea extract also reduces the appearance of wrinkles and slows skin aging.6-9
Alpha-hydroxy acids were long ago documented to remove coarse dead cells at the skin’s surface, thereby exposing the youthful-looking cells beneath. However, individuals with sensitive skin may not tolerate some products formulated with alpha-hydroxy acids due to unacceptable levels of stinging and irritation. To resolve this problem, Ultra Rejuvenex® provides a balanced combination of alpha- and beta-hydroxy acids. The beta-hydroxy acids remove dead cells at the skin’s surface without causing irritation.
Youthful skin contains an abundance of hyaluronic acid. This viscous protein forms part of the structural support scaffold beneath the skin. In the epidermis, hyaluronic acid helps the skin retain moisture.10-12 Ultra Rejuvenex® contains hyaluronic acid in a patented QuSome® liposome delivery system for deeper penetration.
As we grow older, the accumulation of glycated collagen can result in visible skin aging. Alpha-lipoic acid helps maintain healthy looking skin by inhibiting glycation and reducing the appearance of wrinkles.13-15 Ultra Rejuvenex® contains an abundance of alpha-lipoic acid.
Beta-glucan is a specialized yeast cell wall extract that helps retain one’s youthful appearance.16-20 More beta-glucan has been added to Ultra Rejuvenex®. Oat kernel extract, a 100% natural sugar extract derived from oats, has an elastic nature that acts immediately, making the skin appear firmer.
Scientific studies substantiate the skin-rejuvenating effects of topically applied antioxidants, especially vitamin C.21 When applied topically, the ascorbyl palmitate and ascorbyl phosphate forms of vitamin C nourish the skin. Ultra Rejuvenex® contains both of these forms of vitamin C.
Ultra Rejuvenex® provides optimal potencies of the best-documented skin-rejuvenation agents. Key ingredients in Ultra Rejuvenex® are encased in a patented QuSome® delivery system. This system enables the ingredients to reach the lower layers of skin where they are released gradually to maximize their effects.
The pioneering work of Benjamin S. Frank, M.D., showed that RNA (ribonucleic acid) improves the appearance of the skin. Clinical trials have demonstrated the rejuvenating effects of creams containing RNA/DNA. Ultra Rejuvenex contains RNA.
Ultra Rejuvenex® provides a complete moisturizing complex, including NaPCA, lactic acid, and urea. Patented Ceraphyl® NGA is also included because of its moisturizing ability.
Ultra Rejuvenex® is a comprehensive skin cream that should be applied to the face every morning before your first encounter with the sun. It readily penetrates the skin and can be worn under makeup.
