Next Generation of AHAs

February 15, 2010

New to the Peels To The People anti-aging arsenal comes Age-Limit, a new generation of alphahydroxy acids (AHAs).  In the 1990s, AHAs were the most remarkable skin treatments ever developed for aging or problem skin.  But they had one big drawback:  irritation.

Age-Limit solves this problem with the AHAminoPlex molecule – a complex of glycolic acid and a naturally derived amino acid to ensure maximum acid delivery without penetrating skin’s zone of irritation.  This patented technology, developed by Drs. Yu and Van Scott, the pioneers of AHA skin therapy, is the next generation of AHAs.

This safe and effective new product is available now!  Coupled with periodic chemical peels, results are phenomenal.

Further Predictions

January 16, 2010

Let me share some thoughts written by David Suzuki, president of Bio-Therapeutic, the manufacturer of my Platinum Microcurrent device.  He begins by summarizing the financial uncertainties and opportunities of 2009, then proceeds with describing “the implementation of new services in new environments that cater to our new culture”.

“The new evolution of Americans has not displaced their priority of looking and feeling young; on the contrary, this priority has risen.  What has changed however is how they want to receive their services, the environment and the process.  Today’s clients have learned to be direct and frugal.  They have also learned the hard way that they, and only they, are responsible for their well being and livelihood”.

“Today’s clients will quickly sacrifice a two hour facial in the room for a 25 minute mini facial.  Mini-facials are generally specifically zone focused, therefore addressing their primary concerns.  Bottom line they are quick, practical, effective and allow the client a platform to become an active participant in their skin care, all of which speak to today’s new culture”.

Fast services such as peels, LED light treatments and mini-facials are a staple here at Peels To The People.

Skin Care Predictions 2010

January 3, 2010

I find it interesting to read what the “experts” say about skin care in the coming year.  These predictions are global in nature rather than specific to brands, colors, and so forth.   Sources are noted; most are market research firms either in the U.S. or the U.K.

1.  “Mood Beauty”:  there will be an increasing use of scents to promote well-being and induce sleep, for example.  Source:  Mintel International Group Ltd.

2.  “New Natural”: claims like “free from” and “sustainable” will appear in products that simulatneously contain synthetic actives like peptides, hyaluronic acid, ceramides and collagen.  Source:  Mintel International Group Ltd.

3.  “Waste Not”: consumers are adopting a “waste not, want not” mentality regarding skin care products.  They must be simple to use and make their skin better.  Souce:  S. Shelton, Shelton Group.

4.  “Skin Care: The Next Fast Food”: the consumer push-back that began with tobacco and more recently has focused on fast foods will soon be aimed at leading cosmetic companies and faux organic/natural lines.  Once social networks are mobilized against chemical “baddies”, personal care manufacturers need to be ready for the consumers’ rejections and offer natural and efficacious alternatives.  C. Swanson, Tonique, Utalkmarketing.com.

Personally I’m pleased that my own skin care line as well as the Epionce brand can back up their efficacy with clinical studies by third parties.  Their “scents” are botanical rather than synthetic, their packaging is minimal, and they have not been tested on animals.   I do believe that the skin care that I offer is already trend-setting.
