Every skincare product promises to turn back the clock, rejuvenate the skin and restore a youthful glow. However most of these products, while effective, have harmful side effects. Retin-A is while still the gold standard in skincare efficacy. Retin-A users reported improvements in skin texture, including diminished wrinkles and brown spots. The problem with Retin-A is that it has significant side effects. Most people cannot tolerate the side effects of Retin-A; redness, peeling, thinning skin and sensitivity to light. In the late 80’s I discovered that glycolic, fruit and lactic acids provide similar effects to Retin A but with less side effects. However, these molecules are enzymes which digest both living and dead skin cells. And these enzymes continue to digest until there is nothing left. As a result, while consumers experienced less side effects than they did when using Retin-A products, they still experienced thinning skin, redness, peeling, flaking and photo-sensitivity when using these enzymes for prolonged periods of time. Restorsea’s active enzyme provides the same effects as glycolic acid but without the side effects. This is because our enzyme is unique in two ways. First, the enzyme only digest dead skin. Unlike the other enzymes, this enzyme is three dimensional and can only latch on to three dimensional cells. Living skin is smooth and so the enzyme cannot attach itself to live skin. Dead skin cells are not smooth and the enzyme attaches itself to these cells. Second, the enzyme is unique in that it is able to turn itself off. When it is finished digesting the dead skin cells, the enzyme goes into a sleep mode. This is why Restorsea users after 8 weeks see the Restorsea Glow; skin looks more even, firmer, and radiant without the side effects of redness, flakiness, thinning skin and sensitivity to light. Composed entirely of naturally-derived ingredients, all Restorsea formulas are free of PEGS, parabens, phthalates, silicone and mineral oil. Restorsea is hypoallergenic, dermatologist and ophthalmologist tested.   XOX Patti
