The cosmetic and fragrance industries have become territory open to exploration by all, from flighty pop stars to socially inept scientists. Recently I was shocked to hear that the latest boldface name to bottle her scent is none other than the infamous romance novelist Danielle Steel. This causes one to question how long it will be before celebrities not only represent skin care lines, but start to make them too. Which leads me to one not-so-brilliant revelation – if anything, we can always rely on the results science affirms. Enter Neocutis.
This California-based biotech company creates a variety of healing products to treat ailments from head to toe, but their wonder cream, Bio-restorative Skin Cream with PSP (Processed Skin Cell Proteins), is a healing cream to be used for natural and chemical-induced skin issues, from rosacea and wrinkles to post-treatment reactions.
Developed by scientists at University Hospital of Lausanne in Switzerland PSP contains growth factors and interleukins that stimulate collagen growth and cell turnover. It also utilizes cultured fetal skin cells to obtain the best mix of nutrients, proteins, and antioxidants, and contains no sunscreen, fragrances, or additives, which makes absorption easier. In addition, it can be used with all other products, including retinoids. Botox and Restylane patients have also reported that using the cream after procedures extends the results.
What differentiates this product from other anti-aging products is that it isn’t one at all. It was originally created for wound therapy and was given to burn and skin ulcer patients. Like many other lab-based products, scientists and subjects discovered by accident that is also functions remarkably well treating sunspots, rosacea, eczema, wrinkles and general skin care aggravations and signs of aging.
But beyond the scientific claims, the one factor in this situation that affirms its effectiveness is it can only be purchased through plastic surgeons, dermatologists, or medical spas.
