Peter Thomas Roth has always provided a reliable, extensive line of gender-neutral skin care products. To the catalog of “Clinical Skin Care” they add the latest collection, the Firma-Cell-4 products, a collection of two sets of products whose base is the signature patent pending complex, a fusion of four active peptides that permeates the outer layer of the skin to boost cellular production of collagen and elastin.

The 24/7 collection is comprised of a light cream, a moisturizer, and the Cellular Eye Repair Gel, all of which contain glycolic acid and vitamins A, C, and E. The Mega-Rich collection has all the ingredients the 24/7 lines does, but the serum contains lactic acid, gingko biloba, and fennel seed, while the face and eye crèmes contain pro-vitamin B5 as well. The Ultra-Lite 24/7 Anti-Aging Cellular Repair cream and the Mega-Rich Intensive Anti-Aging Cellular Repair Serum are suitable for all skin types, including oily and acne prone skin.

Despite their new technology, there are some PTR mainstays that warrant a mention. The Environmental Repair Hydrating Gel is an oil-free solution that absorbs quickly and is a great base for a moisturizer and makeup. It hydrates skin damaged by wind, sun, and pollutants.

Another crowd pleaser is the Cucumber Gel Masque. Though it looks like a tub of green aloe, this cool, soothing mask is a combination of many ingredients, including papaya, bilberry, sugar cane, lemon, orange, and maple extracts. The fruit and sugar extracts shed dead skin cells; the maple, aloe, and cucumber extracts soothe skin; and the bilberry extract has a dual function: it’s an antiseptic and an anti-inflammatory.

If you’re looking for an extra step to add before your moisturizer, choose the Power C Soufflé. The medium-weight vitamin C-based cream contains ginkgo biloba, which soothes skin, and beta-glucan, which permeates the dermis to decrease the depth of wrinkles.

Finally, for the woman who is nearing the senior discount, there’s the Power Rescue Facial Firming Lift, a creamy hydrator packed with moisture-boosting soy protein; vitamin C and citrus bioflavonoids to combat free radicals; green tea, kojic acid, vitamin K, and arnica to ease inflammation and lighten skin; and small roe-size beads of coenzyme Q10 to combat wrinkles by neutralizing free radicals and stimulating collagen and elastin production. This is everything a maturing woman needs to erase the sun’s signs of personal neglect and help maintain natural beauty.
