Neocutis has long been known as a skin care leader for their innovations in growth factor technology. (Read more about that here) The newest NEOCUTIS skin care line, MICRO•ESSENTIALS, is now available - and after weeks of experimentation, I can confidently say: I'm nuts about it. This brand new class of anti-aging brings a new addition ingredient to skin care - So what IS the newest thing, you ask?
The short answer: A brand new blend of peptides.
The short answer, explained: Inspired by matrikine technology, MPC™ (Micro Protein Complex) uses a new blend of peptides to help defend against and correct the visible signs of skin aging.
What will these fancy peptides actually do for me, you ask?
- They stimulate Collagen 1, 3, and 7 (7 is the kind way deep down there, helping with "foundational" support of the skin. Think firm!)
- They stimulate your own production of Hylauronic Acid (HA). HA might sound familiar, it's a popular ingredient in moisturizers, hydrating serums, and fillers like Juvederm and Restylane. It'll keep your skin plump and hydrated.
- They stimulate elastin synthesis. This is exciting, there's not many products/ingredients out there that'll do this.
The NEOCUTIS MICRO•ESSENTIALS line includes five products to help you kick butt in the anti-aging department:
- Broad-spectrum Sunscreen with SPF 30
- An all-in-one for the girl on the go, this moisturizing product also delivers anti-oxidant protection
- Tinted and creamy, yet sheer and satiny consistency is lovely to apply and great for most all skin types
- Finally... A great anti-aging product that isn't too heavy, but still restores moisture. It's about time we had a new product in this category.
- Smooths skin and improves firmness while you sleep.
- If you like Lumiere, you'll LOVE this
- alleviates the signs of fatigue
- Light consistency, noticeable results
- helps make the delicate skin around the eyes resistant to the signs of aging.
- Safe to use on upper lids too! Woot!
- The Cadillac of the line, this glorious serum is the highest concentration of our new found peptide friends.
- Absolutely lovely upon application, not sticky or goopy... Just elegant and enjoyable as it smoothed over skin.
- goes beyond fine lines and wrinkles to address additional signs of aging, including elasticity, tone and texture.
