NeoStrataNeoStrata has a passion for developing the very best in anti-ageing skincare.
From the beginning, founders, Dr. Eugene Van Scott and Dr. Ruey Yu, discovered novel ingredients that have advanced the science of dermatology. Their commitment to discovery and quest for innovation in skin revitalization have helped to revolutionize physician grade skincare for more than 40 years. This dedication and deeply embedded passion continue today in the laboratories of NeoStrata with the careful crafting of elegant, highly effective formulations, with results proven by rigorous studies.
Each NeoStrata product is backed by the highest standards of quality and effectiveness to deliver products and results worthy of our dermatological heritage.
What makes this brand unique is that not only are the molecules tested for efficacy before being included into a final formulation, the penetration of the molecules is also tested to ensure they are actively delivered into the skin to exert the desired effect. In general skincare, molecules are required to be under a specific molecular weight (500 Da) to ensure penetration into the skin to avoid having these molecules remain on top of the skin and essentially have no effect whatsoever. Many products sold in supermarkets do not go through rigorous testing and therefore no proof exists of penetration.
NeoStrata, being the founder of the Alpha Hydroxy Acid, Glycolic acid, and its anti-ageing benefits on the skin held the patent for 20 years. Many of the newer molecules in the range today are still under patent. Examples of the newer novel ingredients are N-Acetyl Glucosamine and N-Acetyl Tyrosinamide, which are amino acid ingredients that have a variety of benefits within the skin, including stimulation Hyaluronic Acid and have quick skin building effects which have been demonstrated in clinical studies.
Novel ingredients such as Apple Stem Cells are also combined with the patented NeoStrata actives as they prolong cell function in the skin and delay cellular senescence. Older skin cells are able to then act as younger, healthier cells. Potent antioxidants such as Chardonnay Grape seed extract and Lilac Leaf Cell Culture Extract are also included to provide superior antioxidant activity in comparison to Vitamin C and E which are well known antioxidants.
NeoStrata, being a physician grade peel, means that these treatments can only be performed under the supervision of a medical professional as these procedures as the PH of the peels are very low. A clinical result can be seen with the peels and the homecare products in a period of 12-16 weeks depending on what indication is being treated. A unique feature with these peels is the safety surrounding treating all Fitzpatrick skin types 1-6 and being able to treat the majority of skin concerns or indications ie Pigmentation, Acne, Fine lines, Wrinkles and even sensitive skins.
A common misconception is that peels can ‘thin’ the skin, however this is not the case. Peels actually thin out the stratum corneum, which is the top most layer of dead skin cells. This allows for active ingredients to penetrate into the ‘living’ layers of the skin to have a beneficial plumping and evening effect.
