NeoStrata® Introduces New SKIN ACTIVE® Perfecting Peel: A High Strength Alpha Hydroxy Acid Exfoliation Treatment Effective and Safe for Home Use from the Creators of the Original Glycolic Acid Peel
PRINCETON, N.J., Sept. 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — NeoStrata Company, Inc., the creators of the original glycolic acid peel, today announced the introduction of new Perfecting Peel to SKIN ACTIVE, its line of elite science antiaging skincare. This new Alpha Hydroxy Acid home exfoliation product was unveiled at the 2012 American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) summer academy meeting held August 15 – 19 in Boston, MA.
“Enhanced exfoliation with Alpha Hydroxy Acid peels helps skin speed its natural rejuvenation process,” said Elizabeth Briden, MD, Director of the Advanced Dermatology and Cosmetic Institute and Assistant Clinical Professor of Medicine at the University of Minnesota Medical School. “Perfecting Peel is a first-time-ever home use formula containing citric acid and glycolic acid, the peeling agent that we’ve used so effectively in our dermatology practices for many years with great results. Patients find this weekly peel gentle and easy to use complementing their daily skin care regimen for beautiful results.”
SKIN ACTIVE Perfecting Peel is formulated with a unique 20% Alpha Hydroxy Acid blend of 10% Citric and 10% Glycolic acids. In a study, 94% of women (N=17) noticed overall improvement when Perfecting Peel was used once weekly for two months. Observed visible improvement included fine lines, wrinkles, and uneven pigmentation. In the study, 100% observed it to be gentle.
“The science of Alpha Hydroxy Acids in skin care was pioneered by NeoStrata’s founders who wrote the dermatology textbook chapter and created the first glycolic acid peel,” said Barbara Green, R.Ph., Vice-President of Clinical Affairs at NeoStrata. “Now this revolution in skin care can be safely and effectively used at home. It is a perfect addition to Skin Active, our elite science line of home use products that address multiple signs of aging.”
SKIN ACTIVE Perfecting Peel is available exclusively through professional dermatology offices and their on-line outlets beginning September 2012. To find them online visit www.lovelyskin.com or www.skintherapy.com.
About the SKIN ACTIVE System
Perfecting Peel joins the NeoStrata SKIN ACTIVE system, launched in 2011. The clinically proven base regimen is made up of four high-performance products, each formulated to deliver outstanding rejuvenating effects, including significant improvement in the appearance of deep wrinkles, crow’s feet, sagging and uneven pigmentation. When the four core products are used as a daily regimen, complementary mechanisms of action work synergistically in all skin layers to achieve even greater results.
Unlike other skin products that rely on one approach or key active, SKIN ACTIVE contains many novel ingredients like Maltobionic acid, NeoGlucosamine®, and Swiss apple stem cell extract that work together to stimulate cell renewal, even pigmentation, boost collagen and protect against oxidative damage. The four base regimen products include Exfoliating Wash, Matrix Support SPF 30 (day cream), Cellular Restoration (night cream) and Intensive Eye Therapy. In addition to the base regimen are two high potency serums: Firming Collagen Booster and Antioxidant Defense Serum both formulated to boost a daily regimen addressing key antiaging concerns.
