Genucel® anti-aging skin care products were developed by George Faltaous, a pharmacist with a background in chemistry and nutrition as well as pharmaceuticals. Our unique anti-aging formulations are based on sound scientific thinking, a belief in using only pure ingredients, and clinical proof of what works to fight wrinkles and restore skin’s youthful appearance.
Knowing that antioxidants have the power to fight wrinkle-causing free radicals, as well as nourish and moisturize, we base all of our anti-aging skin care products on antioxidants.
Free radicals are formed when the body uses oxygen. This is a normal process, but exposure to sunlight, cigarette smoke, pollution and other external and internal stresses increases the number of free radicals in the body. These molecules are unstable due to unpaired electrons, so they seek out electrons from healthy molecules. At abnormally high levels, the result is cellular damage – the primary cause of wrinkles, dark circles under the eyes and other visible signs of aging.
Antioxidants are the best defense, playing an important role by neutralizing oxidative damage and building up natural defenses. They’re produced in the body, and also found in a wide array of foods, such as cranberries, grapes, blackberries, blueberries, green tea and many others. However, studies have shown that the skin is the last organ of the body to receive antioxidants from the foods we eat.
Genucel antioxidant skin care products are the solution. Clinical studies prove that topical antioxidants like those in our best-selling anti-wrinkle creams not only help to heal environmentally damaged skin, but slow down the aging process and prevent wrinkles. All Genucel anti-aging treatments are packed with powerful antioxidants. A synergistic combination of natural ingredients ensures that your skin receives its maximum benefit.
A number of our physician-endorsed anti-wrinkle creams, eye wrinkle creams and other anti-aging treatments contain the following:
- Cranberry: The tocotrienols in cranberries have great antioxidant properties, which help protect the skin from stress caused by sunlight. It also has omega oils to nourish and moisturize the skin while calming inflammation.
- Grape Seed Extract: Containing chemicals known as polyphenols, scientifically recognized to be powerful antioxidants, grape seed extract is instrumental to protecting the skin from free radical damage.
- Vitamin E: This vitamin is an excellent antioxidant, protecting the skin from environmental pollution and UV radiation. It also has excellent moisturizing properties and an anti-inflammatory action, which helps prevent skin aging.
- Green Tea: Extensive research has shown that this botanical extract not only has amazing antioxidant and cell protective qualities, but also protects collagen, a primary component of healthy skin, and fights inflammation.
Other anti-aging skin care products contain antioxidants. However, in most cases these potentially highly effective ingredients are buried in a poor quality base, so that their immediate benefits quickly erode. Also, quality ingredients like antioxidants are often present only in very small amounts, making them ineffective. Genucel anti-aging products contain clinical concentrations of a variety of powerful antioxidants in a gentle, natural base of calendula that ensures effectiveness without any harmful side effects.
