We’re excited to introduce our newest age corrective skin care product, the Vitamin C Stem Cell Mask. As the name suggests, it includes high concentrations of Vitamin C (BV-OSC), two new Stem Cells, and a new Peptide. With the Vitamin C Stem Cell Mask formulation complete, we expect to launch the professional size in April, and in June/July for retail. It’s the latest addition to our growing line of result driven stem cell products, and another of our stem cells products that can also be filed under skin lightening.

Stable, Oil Soluble Vitamin C: BV-OSC (Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate)

This regenerative skin treatment includes the anti-aging agent Vitamin C Ester, which has been proven to stimulate the growth of skin cells that help produce collagen and elastin, and which give the skin strength and flexibility. BV-OSC repairs the effects of sun damage and restores smoothness, brightness and luminosity, while visibly firming the skin. Unlike traditional Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid), it does not oxidize, or turn brown in color over time.

Argan Stem Cells (Argania Spinosa Sprout Cell Extract)

Argan Stem Cells are another key ingredient in our Vitamin C Stem Cell Mask. Found exclusively in the southwestern part of Morocco, the argan fruit stem cells have proven effective in accelerating the skin’s natural repair process, minimizing fine lines and wrinkles while rejuvenating dermal skin cells responsible for collagen and elastin production.

CIC2 (Sea Fennel) Stem Cells for Skin Renewal

  • Lightening of the skin
  • Improved skin radiance and tone
  • Skin renewal stimulation

LPAR Skin Care is pleased to announce a formulation upgrade to our Enzyme Lifting Mask, now to include Argan Stem Cells. These groundbreaking stem cells, created from the Argan tree in Morocco, help delay the depletion of dermal stem cells while restoring firmness to the skin and reducing wrinkles. The results delivered by this treatment mask are a visible “lift” and firmer, tighter skin.

Recommended for mature skin types, the Enzyme Lifting Mask also moisturizes and hydrates the skin, increasing circulation deep within skin cells.

Argania Spinosa Sprout Cell Extract (Argan Stem Cells)

argania-spinosa-sprout

Argan trees are large and long-lived, belonging to the oldest tree species on earth. Growing only in the southwestern part of Morocco, they are able to resist droughts and extremely high temperatures. The argan fruit stem cells have proven effective in accelerating the skin’s natural repait process, minimizing fine lines and wrinkle while rejuvenating dermal skin cells responsible for collagen and elastin production.

Euterpe Oleracea (Acai) Fruit Extract

euterpe-oleracea

The acai tree is a type of palm tree native to the Amazon rainforest. These tall trees produce small, dark purple acai berries. Brazilian natives found the healing properties of acai berries thousands of years ago, and found it boosted their energy when consumed regularly. Acai has all the vitamins and minerals of most fruits, but one if its most powerful antioxidants is anthocyanin, a big part of acai’s free-radical and age-fighting powers.

Regenerative Moisturizing CreamLPAR Skin Care’s Regenerative Moisturizing Cream is a rich, creamy and luxurious glycolic acid based moisturizer formulated with numerous botanical extracts, essential oils, and now with the maximum concentration of Grape Stem Cells, (Vitis Vinifera Fruit Cell Extract – 1%).

Grape Stem Cells are renowned for their ability to help protect and strengthen skin cells against UV stress and for fighting premature photoaging, while glycolic acid (2%) facilitates a gentle exfoliation of the epidermis. Dermatologists recommend the use of skin care products that contain glycolic acid because of their ability to “peel” away layers of toxins and unhealthy skin cells that have accumulated over time.

It’s important to note that Grape Stem Cells do not take the place of sunscreen, but they help the skin combat and recover from daily environmental stresses like UV rays. Considering sun damage accounts for the vast majority of premature skin aging, UV protection and recovery is often the most effective and important skin concern.

How to Use:

Smooth a pearl sized drop onto the face once or twice daily (morning or evening). It is important to follow with Solar Protection if used during the day to prevent further skin damage and photoaging.

Ingredient Highlights:

Grape Stem Cells (Vitis Vinifera Fruit Cell Extract): These grape stem cells (from the Gamay grape) contain special epigenetic factors and metabolites which are able to protect human skin stem cells against UV. They also delay the aging of essential skin cells, helping to fight photo-aging.

Glycolic Acid: As mentioned, Glycolic Acid is one of the most tried and true exfoliants in skin care. Dermatologists recommend the use of skin care products that contain glycolic acid because of their ability to “peel” away layers of toxins and unhealthy skin cells that accumulate over time.

Botanical Extracts & Essential Oils: Sweet Almond Oil (Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis), Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Sesamum Indicum (Sesame) Seed Oil, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice Powder.

An important addition to mature skin regime, Regenerative Moisturizing Cream helps eliminate environmental toxins that damage and prematurely age skin while  providing penetrating moisture.

Clear Zinc Solar ProtectionThe new formulation of LPAR Skin Care’s highly popular professional skin care “Clear Zinc Solar Protection – Tinted” officially launched the last week of January. The FDA mandated that a sample of the product be sent out for SPF testing and analysis by an independent lab. We are excited to report that it passed with flying colors, averaging over 35 in SPF and qualifying as broad spectrum solar protection (UVA & UVB) which addresses both issues of protection from sun burning and UVA radiation that cause wrinkles and sun damage.

We knew there would be a high demand to keep this product in stock, so we did not label the first batch with an SPF value in order to speed up availability as we waited for the test results. The new formulation of this product provides the excellent solar protection that we’ve all come to expect and now more. Note that the SPF value and introductory text (on the back label) will reappear on the product label later in the year.

Why the change?

This was probably the last product of ours that we ever wanted to re-formulate, due its retail and professional success. However, the zinc oxide we sourced in our ingredients is no longer available and we’ve had to look for a sustainable solution. We have done this with the “Silicon Based” and “Light Tint Silicon” products as well. The result is an even better, more effective sun protection product.

The Names of our Solar Protection Products:

Since all three of our Solar Protection products (Clear, Light Tint, and Tinted) now contain the same zinc oxide, all three will be produced with a silicon base, which blends well with zinc oxide and adds stability to the product. It also allows for an easier application with less product, as it glide on the skin with less pull and is more effective in all climates even areas with high humidity. For this reason, we will be phasing out the term “Silicon Based” and “Light Tint Silicon” on the product labels since now there is no reason to differentiate the Silicon Based products.

What to expect:

Our goal was to keep every element to this product consistent with the original formula, including the color, coverage, and natural glow it gives to the skin. We have spent over a year perfecting these elements and ultimately found along with the new formulation comes a slightly different texture. The result is not quite as thick as with the original, but that is offset by increased solar protection.

We’re also continuing to explore different shades for future products and plan to produce a darker shade to add to our line of SPF products. We look forward to your feedback, and hope you continue to enjoy what we believe is among the finest in cosmetic quality, professional sun defense available.

Lucrece Massage Cream & Body BalmWe formulated our new botanically rich Massage Cream with Professional Skin Care in mind, especially as a service oriented product for Spa’s. We quickly realized that the product had great retail potential, especially when sampled as a hand, forearm, and body cream. So much so that the product name will eventually reflect this (Massage Cream & Body Balm).

Lucrece Physicians’ Aesthetic Research’s (LPAR) new Massage Cream & Body Balm contains ingredients from the essential oils of coconut, grapefruit and mandarin orange to make this a naturally aromatic cream. In the background are the soft scents of sweet almond, safflower seed and candlenut. The combination of these essential oils, in just the right balance, awakens the senses, stimulates circulation, calms inflammation, aids in relaxation and provides moisture for the skin.

Other essential ingredients in this unique massage cream include:

One of the benefits of this massage cream is that it has rejuvenation qualities as it hydrates and each ingredient is carefully selected to meet LPAR’s standards for their skin care products.

Now available for LPAR skin care professionals and for retail purchase, it will be available in a smaller size for  use at home. Its gentle formulation allows this product to be used on any part of the body including the face (avoid the eye area).

Apply generously to face, neck and body to soothe and nourish the skin during a massage or as an every day moisturizing cream. Remove with warm, damp towel.
