Isomers Wrinkle Viper
Snake venom has had a place in traditional cultures as a medicinal and beauty ingredient for a long time. Now, you too can deal with any unsightly marks of time with a little touch of poison. Isomers Laboratories’ breakthrough product Wrinkle Viper Skin Smoothing Serum is an anti-wrinkle product that has bottled synthesized snake venom for that exact purpose.

The formula contains an anti-wrinkle synthetic peptide that mimics the effect of the snake venom peptide Waglerin-1. Combined with the well-known age defying ingredient acetyl hexapeptide-3, it creates an even more powerful weapon against the visible lines of aging.

“We wanted to harness the effect of the venom to create an injection-free way of addressing surface skin lines and wrinkles and relaxing the lines of time on our skin”, notes Manuela Marcheggiani, Isomers CEO and cosmetic chemist. Beauty News’ short testing of the product found it to leave a decidedly supple matt effect on the skin.

Strivectin-SD Eye Cream
StriVectin-SD, the stretch mark cream turned anti-wrinkle phenomenon, which has become one of the most sought-after topicals around the globe, including its ironic success as an American product in the French (ahem!) cosmetic market, was released in an under-eye treatment version earlier this year.

The cream uses the same functional compound as the original StriVectin-SD, with slight modifications for the delicate skin in the orbital eye area – the eyelid and the area directly below the eye. The product is intended to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and dark circles around the eye. Although we did not have too many wrinkles or fine lines to test on, the skin around the eye feels significantly tightened – meaning reduced signs of puffiness and slack – after just a couple of applications. We are hooked!
