NEW YORK, Jan. 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- As the antioxidant authority, SkinCeuticals is committed to developing skincare products backed by science that protect and prevent skin from free radical damage while providing corrective benefits. The latest breakthrough ingredient to the SkinCeuticals portfolio is resveratrol, a naturally derived molecule clinically proven to provide far-reaching benefits for both the body—and the skin.
Resveratrol is a potent polyphenol antioxidant found in grapes, red wine, nuts, and other plant sources and has garnered the reputation as the "longevity molecule" because of the role it has been found to play in determining species' longevity and health span. Researchers believe that resveratrol can positively influence the processes that cause age-related deterioration and functional decline.1 Today that longevity power is translated into strong cutting-edge applications in anti-aging medicine. Resveratrol has been proven to provide a broad range of beneficial effects including cardioprotective, neuroprotective, and chemoprotective properties.2 New studies now show the potential for resveratrol in the biology of aging. Working by a new antioxidant pathway of action, resveratrol helps sustain healthy cell longevity by neutralizing intracellular free radical damage and repairing the visible effects of age-accelerated skin. However due to the natural instability of the molecule, it has been impossible to formulate resveratrol at meaningful concentrations, proven to penetrate skin.
Skinceuticals introduces Resveratrol B E – an antioxidant night concentrate that boosts skin's internal antioxidant defense system to help repair and prevent accumulated damage. Resveratrol B E features a maximized concentration of 1% pure soluble resveratrol synergistically enhanced with baicalin and vitamin E for more antioxidant protection than any one of these alone. Together these three active ingredients boost skin's internal antioxidant defense system to enhance skin's natural self-repair and rebuild its defenses against new damage.
To overcome the challenge of formulating a meaningful concentration of resveratrol proven to penetrate skin, SkinCeuticals advanced research has developed an innovative patent pending delivery system to solubilize a high concentration of resveratrol in an aqueous formulation. As a result, Resveratrol B E is a first-to-market nighttime antioxidant delivering a maximized concentration of pure, stabilized resveratrol.
"Resveratrol B E is a potent antioxidant night concentrate that boosts skin's internal defense system to help repair and prevent accumulated damage," says Marc Toulemonde, SkinCeuticals Global General Manager. "By maximizing skin's nighttime reconstruction potential, Resveratrol B E offers a comprehensive approach to preventing and repairing visible signs of skin aging through three modes of action. It neutralizes age-accelerating internal free radicals, promotes skin's natural repair to diminish the signs of accumulated damage and strengthens skin to resist new damage."
As with all SkinCeuticals products, Resveratrol B E has been subjected to rigorous clinical testing, including a trial of 55 women with mild to moderate hyperpigmentation, skin laxity, and lines and wrinkles. After 12 weeks of use, Resveratrol B E significantly improved skin radiance, firmness, thickness, elasticity, density, and smoothness. Ultrasound measurement was used to visualize the effects of Resveratrol B E within the skin. After 12 weeks of use, underlying skin repair prompted an 18.9% increase in skin density.
Resveratrol B E is just one part of a comprehensive, reparative skincare regimen. For around the clock antioxidant prevention and repair it is recommended to use C E Ferulic in the morning to help shield skin from environmental damage and Resveratrol B E at night to boost skin's resilience. For an intensive nighttime regimen to correct signs of accumulated damage use Resveratrol B E to boost skin's resilience followed by A.G.E. Interrupter to reduce the appearance of creping, thinning skin.
SkinCeuticals Resveratrol B E will be available for $145 beginning February 2014 at physician offices nationwide as well as www.skinceuticals.com
