Q&A with Isabel Greiner from Intuisse

Swiss skincare brand Intuisse has launched its innovative products in the U.S. I recently sampled Intuisse’s product line and was impressed with the products’ performance and prestigious packaging.

I jumped at the chance to learn more about Intuisse from the brand’s co-founder and CEO, Isabel Greiner. Isabel and her team of molecular scientists and organic chemists developed Intuisse’s products with a stabilized form of Active NAD+. This revolutionary innovation allows the product to penetrate the deep layers of your skin to promote collagen and elastin development. Isabel gave me some insight into her impressive career in the beauty space, and told me how Intuisse’s high-performance, luxurious products will stand out in the U.S.


Isabel, can you tell us about your background and what inspired you to pursue skincare?

I was born in Germany and raised in New York City. Although I dabbled in other industries, beauty has always been my passion. I started my beauty career at Estée Lauder and Avon where I worked on several smaller brands, including MAC, Kate Spade Beauty, Jo Malone, Tiny Tillia, which kindled my entrepreneurial spirit, despite being under the auspices of a large corporation.

Co-founding Intuisse has been a true labor of love. My mission was to create a truly modern skincare brand that, beyond being clean and scientifically proven by clinical trials went further, not only in terms of efficacy and leveraging new findings in the field of longevity science, but also in terms of transparency.


How does Intuisse differ from other skincare brands on the market?

A scientifically proven, premium skincare range from Switzerland, Intuisse utilizes a ground-breaking liposomal formulation of pharma-grade Active NAD+ (global patent pending) to activate the skin’s own collagen, elastin, and laminin production, helping skin to stay younger and healthier for longer. It’s the perfect trifecta – clean, highly effective, and eco-conscious – as the formulas bio-activate the body’s own production of proteins that make skin cells strong and resilient.

A lot of beauty brands are either clean or science-led, eco-conscious or not, transparent, or complex. Intuisse offers the consumer efficacy, natural ingredients, transparency, sustainability, ground-breaking innovation, advanced scientific proof, sumptuous texture, and immediate results.

How does Intuisse approach the development of its skincare products from a research standpoint?

Intuisse (www.Intuisse.com) is the scientific brainchild of a team of Swiss experts in molecular cardiology and organic chemistry, who are revolutionizing the fight against skin aging. While health experts in functional medicine for instance have talked about the benefits around NAD+ IV injections and supplements, skincare is new to the discussion. The difference is this: Intuisse uses active NAD+ – the coenzyme found in all living cells which powers the mitochondria (battery of the cell) and helps repair DNA damaged by external (UV, pollution) and internal stressors. This coenzyme declines with age, so supplementing is important.

While the benefits of NAD+ for skin health are well documented, its structure is unstable and scientifically proven penetration to the lower levels of the dermis had remained elusive. Using breakthrough technology and cutting-edge science, the Intuisse team has developed a revolutionary patent-pending liposomal formulation that addresses both stability and penetration. Studies prove that Intuisse liposomal Active NAD+ permeates right down to the lower levels of the skin to supplement the body’s own natural NAD+ levels and delay cell ageing.

Intuisse is the world’s first and only skincare with pharma-grade, pure, bio-available, cold chain preserved NAD+. We back up everything we do with clinical trials. Our research studies show that Intuisse:

  • Permeates the epidermis and the papillary dermis, delivering Active NAD+ directly to the cells (Source BIO-EC)
  • Decreases the number of senescent cells (Source: Center for Molecular Cardiology, University of Zurich)
  • Promotes cell lifespan and healthy functioning (Source: Center for Molecular Cardiology, University of Zurich)
  • Promotes the skin’s own production of laminin-V, elastin, and collagen I (Source: Laboratoire BIO-EC)

How does Intuisse approach sustainability?

Sustainability is key to everything we do. Responsible skincare. Genius products, genius packaging. Health and longevity for our skin and our planet is at the core of what we do.

 At Intuisse, we strive to avoid single-use plastics by using multi-use applicators and 100% recyclable refills. Our cartons use FSC-certified materials and are 100% recyclable, compostable, and biodegradable. All of our bio-active formulations are clean and over 95% natural [as well as] non-GMO.

Is there anything else you would like our readers to know about Intuisse?

Intuisse treats the cause of aging by addressing the biological mechanism of aging – e.g., why cells age, what causes them to enter senescence versus continuing to be healthy and replicating. Our liposomal version of NAD+ is proven to be more effective than NAD+ alone in extending cell lifespan. This means it is preventative and reparative.

 Treating the signs of aging means treating the expression of aging that has already occurred – fine lines and wrinkles that already exist. Intuisse is packed with proven clinically effective levels of other natural actives such as peptides, squalene, fruit acids, hyaluronic acids to address the signs of aging. As an analogy, a dermatologist would treat a spot with salicylic acid. A functional medicine doctor would tell you to stop eating chocolate. One treats the cause, the other the sign. We do both. This is integrative skincare, like integrative medicine. We believe this is the future of skincare.
