Brings Pioneering Anti-Aging Technology to Hand Care
N.J. (December 22, 2005) Every year, American women spend millions of dollars
on anti-aging face products in the hopes of disguising how old they really are.
But what about the telltale fine lines and brown spots on the hands?
As one of the most exposed areas of the body, the hands are
just as susceptible to the effects of photoaging and are just as visible
as the face and neck. Commercial lotions that most people use for their
hands are usually nothing more than an amalgam of water and mineral oil, which
does nothing more than coat the skin so it feels softer.
NEOSTRATA, the company that revolutionized dermatology with
its introduction of alphahydroxy acids to skin care, presents a series of treatments
that bring breakthrough anti-aging and skin-lightening technology to hand care.
These physician-developed products have been clinically proven to help re-texturize,
protect and brighten hands that show accumulated physical and UV damage.
Years of use and abuse exact a severe toll on the hands,
leading to the development of a crepe-like skin texture and unsightly hyperpigmentation
spots, says Lynda Wilson, Vice President, U.S. Market Development at NeoStrata.
NeoStratas hand formulas use the ingredient technology found in our
powerful anti-aging products to return hands to a more youthful, clarified appearance.
NeoStratas hand care products deliver exceptional hydrating,
smoothing and protecting benefits. A powerful blend of patented polyhydroxy, alphahydroxy
and bionic acids stimulate and support skins cellular renewal
process, smooth skin tone and pigmentation, while nutritive vitamins and botanicals
defend against free radicals.
