Jan Marini Skin Research Sets a New Standard in Retinol Based Products
SAN JOSE, Calif., Sept. 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Jan Marini Skin Research (JMSR; JanMarini.com), a leading provider of professional skin care and aesthetic solutions, announced the shipment of two new revolutionary retinoid-antioxidant-peptide complex product solutions – Retinol Plus and Retinol Plus MD. Retinol Plus MD, containing a high concentration 1.0% Retinol, is provided exclusively through the physician retail marketplace while Retinol Plus (0.5% Retinol) is available to licensed skin care professionals and physicians.
The Retinol Plus products offer significant advantages beyond just those of high-concentration retinoids. Key integrated peptides, antioxidants, hydrators and soothing agents enhance clinical benefits while simultaneously reducing the acclimation and sensitivity historically associated with high concentration retinoids. The advanced combination formula provides rapid and clinically proven improvement for smoother, more uniform looking skin with marked reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles with little to no acclimation and sensitivity.
Jan Marini – CEO of Jan Marini Skin Research stated, “We are extremely excited by the advancements Retinol Plus and Retinol Plus MD offer to our customers and the professional retinoid market. These revolutionary products combine the most concentrated levels of retinol allowed with powerful anti-aging peptides and protective and soothing antioxidants in a stabilized lightweight hydrating cream. No other single product offers the same complete anti-aging solution.”
An ongoing, 12-week, multi-center clinical study is showing dramatic and rapid results with extremely high subject satisfaction. Of the first 23 subjects to complete the 12-week study, 100% noted improvement in the appearance of their skin with 72% indicating moderate to significant improvement. The range of anti-aging improvement was broad with 95% of subjects reporting improvement in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and 100% indicating improvement in skin texture, smoothness and pore size. Subject satisfaction was extremely high with 91% indicating purchase intent and 84% rating Retinol Plus MD superior to other prescription and non-prescription anti-aging products for overall improvement and usage experience.
Dr. Kelly Bomer, a Facial Plastic Surgeon in Scottsdale, Arizona overseeing one of the study center locations stated, “As someone who is sensitive to both retinol and prescription retinoids, I was impressed by both the usability and rapid skin rejuvenation. In fact I feel my skin is rejuvenating more quickly than it was with the prescription topical I most recently used without the irritation, redness, itching or inflammatory bumps. Further, it is fun to apply having just the right amount of emollience without being greasy or occlusive. This product is remarkable for transforming the skin into a more vibrant, youthful state; appearing more radiant and supple with reduced appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and pores.”
Dr. Jacqueline Calkin, a Dermatologist in Sacramento and second study site coordinator stated, “Retinoids (Vitamin A) are essential for maintaining optimal skin health and are utilized extensively in both our office and dermatology in general. The improvement and product tolerability we’ve observed in this study surpassed my expectations and, based on my personal observation, in many cases proved superior to prescription solutions. The results are impressive and will definitely change the way we help our patients.”
John Connors, General Manager and EVP of Sales & Marketing commented, “The release of Retinol Plus MD solidifies JMSR’s comprehensive MD line, sold exclusively through physician offices. Combined, Retinol Plus MD, Duality MD, Enlighten MD and the Skin Care Management System MD offer clinically proven, physician dispensed solutions for major adult skin care concerns – including the textural changes, the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentation concerns and adult acne.”
