Age-Defying Skin Care Works Wonders for All Ages!

Hydration & Healthy Skin Care 

Did you know your skin is an organ of elimination and detoxification, as well as the largest organ of respiration? 

Especially if your liver, kidneys and colon are not at their best, toxins will be excreted through the skin. 
If you are experiencing skin eruptions, please consider the suggestions below, before scheduling a consultation for this condition.

This problem may resolve itself if you drink plenty of pure (non-chlorinated) water daily.  You should be drinking half your body weight in ounces daily.  (If you weigh 120 lb. then drink 60 oz.) 

Proper hydration requires enough water getting   inside your cells.  Recent Nobel Prize researchers discovered that each water molecule must travel single file through an aquaporin in the cell membrane. 

 HERE to learn how this can be safely and conveniently facilitated by the use of a remarkable invention!  Be sure to study the research reports by clicking on all links on that site.

Let us know if you are interested in purchasing a StirwandTM

Properties of Some Key Ingredients

Note:  No harmful preservatives  are used.   For a complete list of ingredients,
please refer to ingredients listed with each individual product before ordering.


This amino acid is best described as a semi-essential amino acid. Arginine is a precursor to proline, which is converted to hydroxyproline, then to collagen. It has a positive influence on the body's levels of insulinlike growth factor (IGF-I), is a prucursur to pulyamincs, the cell's building blocks, is the only substrate for nitric oxide synthesis. Nitric oxide has a beneficial effect on circulatory status and increases blood supply. All of which are necessary for healing and repair to the skin.  Arginine contains immune-enhancing properties that can slow down the growth of all kinds of tumors and many types of cancer.


Carnosine is a dipeptide of the amino acids beta-alanine and histidine. Carnosine can increase the Hayflick limit in human fibroblasts, as well as appearing to reduce the telomere shortening rate. Recently, scientists at Harvard Medical School have managed to reverse some of the effects of ageing in mice. The key to this is telomeres and their length. Telomeres are the regions of repetitive DNA at the end of a chromosome. Essentially it protects the end of the chromosome from deterioration. In the course of an average lifespan, as cells divide and replicate, these telomere become worn and degenerate. As this occurs and the telomeres shorten, obvious signs of their degeneration become apparent in humans, forming the classic symptoms of old age,e.g., greying hair, wrinkles, joint pain, organ failure.

Since Carnosine can reduce the telomere shortening rate, we added it to our PM product. Researchers in Britain, South Korea, Russia and other countries have shown that carnosine has a number of antioxidant properties that may be beneficial as well. Because of its antioxidant, antiglycator and metal chelator properties, carnosine supplements have been proposed as a general anti-aging therapy. Carnosine has great potential in topical preparations to reduce wrinkles on the skin.


Niacinamide is one of the two principal forms of vitamin B3 (nicotinic acid is the other). The levels of NADH / NADPH decrease with age, and topical niacinamide appears to reverse the decline. Niacinamide also appears to have some Antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Furthermore, niacinamide is stable, safe and well tolerated in topical formulations even at relatively high concentrations. All of the above suggests that niacinamide, theoretically, may be useful in skin rejuvenation and some skin conditions. Research supporting practical uses of topical niacinamide is already available:


In a randomized controlled study, 4% niacinamide gel has been compared to 1% clindamycin gel (a topical antibiotic) in 76 patients with moderate acne. After 8 weeks, 82% of patients treated with niacinamide and 68% of those treated with clindamycin were considered improved. There were no side effects in either group. The research suggested that anti-inflammatory activity of niacinamide may have contributed to its effect on acne. The main downside of antibiotics is the emergence of resistant microorganisms. If further research confirms that niacinamide is at least as effective as topical antibiotics, it may become a treatment of choice for many acne sufferers because it does not gives rise to microbial resistance.


Rosacea is a condition associated with excessive skin redness, irritability, sensitivity and inflammation. In one study, niacinamide was shown to improve skin barrier function in rosacea patients, leading to diminished reaction to irritants, such as detergents. In another study, treatment with 1-methylnicotinamide (metabolite of niacinamide with known anti-inflammatory effects) resulted in improvement in 26 out of 34 treated subjects. Further research is clearly indicated.

Skin Rejuvenation:

Unfortunately, the research of the niacinamide's potential for skin rejuvenation is in relatively early stages. However, the few existing studies produced promising results. One study showed niacinamide to increase the skin's production of ceramides (natural emollients and skin protectants), thus improving skin hydration. Another study demonstrated mitigating effects of niacinamide on some of the deleterious effects of UV light. Of particular interest, is a well designed (double-blind, placebo-controlled, split-face, left-right randomized) 12-week study in 50 women of the effects of 5% topical niacinamide on various signs of skin aging. The researchers reported significant improvement in fine lines/ wrinkles, hyper pigmentation spots, texture and red blotchiness.

Niacin:  Niacin is a water-soluble vitamin, which is also known as nicotinic acid or vitamin B3. Nicotinamide is the derivative of niacin and used by the body to form the coenzymes nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) and nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NADP).

Function:  Living organisms derive most of their energy from oxidation-reduction (redox) reactions, which are processes involving the transfer of electrons. As many as 200 enzymes require the niacin coenzymes, NAD and NADP, mainly to accept or donate electrons for redox reactions. NAD functions most often in energy producing reactions involving the degradation (catabolism) of carbohydrates, fats, proteins, and alcohol. NADP functions more often in biosynthetic (anabolic) reactions, such as in the synthesis of all macromolecules, including fatty acids cholesterol.

Non-redox reactions: 

The niacin coenzyme, NAD, is the substrate (reactant) for two classes of enzymes (mono-ADP-ribosyltransferases and poly-ADP-ribose polymerase) that separate the niacin moiety from NAD and transfer ADP-ribose to proteins. Mono-ADP-ribosyltransferase enzymes were first discovered in certain bacteria, where they were found to produce toxins, such as cholera and diphtheria. These enzymes and their products, ADP-ribosylated proteins, have also been found in the cells of mammals and are thought to play a role in cell signaling by affecting G-protein activity. G-proteins are proteins that bind guanosine-5'-triphosphate (GTP) and act as intermediaries in a number of cell-signaling pathways. Poly-ADP-ribose polymerases (PARPs) are enzymes that catalyze the transfer of many ADP-ribose units from NAD to acceptor proteins.

PARPs appear to function in DNA repair and stress responses, cell signaling, transcription, regulation or apoptosis, chromatin structure, and cell differentiation, suggesting a possible role for NAD in cancer prevention. At least five different PARPs have been identified, and although their functions are not yet well understood, their existence indicates a potential for considerable consumption of NAD. A third class of enzymes (ADP-ribosyl cyclase) catalyzes the formation of cyclic ADP-ribose, a molecule that works within cells to provoke the release of calcium ions from internal storage sites and probably also plays a role in cell signaling.


The late stage of severe niacin deficiency is known as pellagra. Early records of pellagra followed the widespread cultivation of corn in Europe in the 1700's. The disease was generally associated with poorer social classes whose chief dietary staple consisted of cereals like corn or sorghum. Pellagra was also common in the southern United States during the early 1900's where income was low and corn products were a major dietary staple. Interestingly, pellagra was not known in Mexico, where corn was also an important dietary staple and much of the population was also poor. In fact, corn contains appreciable amounts of niacin, but it is present in a bound form that is not nutritionally available to humans. The traditional preparation of corn tortillas in Mexico involves soaking the corn in a lime (calcium oxide) solution, prior to cooking. Heating the corn in an alkaline solution results in the release of bound niacin, increasing its bioavailability.

The most common symptoms of niacin deficiency involve the skin, digestive system, and the nervous system. The symptoms of pellagra were commonly referred to as the four D's: dermatitis, diarrhea, dementia, and death. In the skin, a thick, scaly, darkly pigmented rash develops symmetrically in areas exposed to sunlight. In fact, the word "pellagra" comes from the Italian phrase for rough or raw skin. Symptoms related to the digestive system include a bright red tongue, vomiting, and diarrhea. Neurological symptoms include headache, apathy, fatigue, depression, disorientation, and memory loss. If untreated, pellagra is ultimately fatal.

Cancer Prevention: 

Studies of cultured cells (in vitro) provide evidence that NAD content influences the cellular response to DNA damage, an important risk factor in cancer development. Cellular NAD plays a role in DNA repair, and cyclic ADP-ribose may also mediate cell-signaling pathways important in cancer prevention. Additionally, cellular depletion of NAD has been found to decrease levels of the tumor suppressor protein, p53, in human breast, skin, and lung cells. One study reported that niacin supplementation decreased the risk of ultraviolet light-induced skin cancers in mice.


Coenzyme Q10 (Co Q10) is a relative newcomer to the skin care industry. Yet, its value for general health and nutrition is rather well known and well researched. CoQ10 has at least two important roles in the body. First, it is one of the essential cogs in the biochemical machinery that produces biological energy (ATP) inside the cells. Second, CoQ10 is an antioxidant. It helps neutralize harmful free radicals, which are one of the causes of aging. Under perfect conditions, the body can produce as much CoQ10 as it needs. However, various factors, such as aging, stress and some medications, can lower the levels of CoQ10 in the body. As a result, the ability of cells to withstand stress and regenerate declines. Unfortunately, the levels of CoQ10 in the body almost inevitably decline with age. In fact, CoQ10 is regarded as one of the most accurate biomarkers of aging since its decline correlates so well with the aging process. In some studies, rodents treated with supplemental CoQ10 lived up to 30 percent longer than their untreated counterparts. The effects of CoQ10 supplements on human longevity remain unknown. On the other hand, it was proven useful in treating certain human diseases, including heart failure and hypertension.
Theoretically speaking, CoQ10 (in a skin cream, for example) can be helpful. In most people over thirty, levels of CoQ10 in the skin are below optimum, resulting in lesser ability to produce collagen, elastin and other important skin molecules. Besides, CoQ10-depleted skin may be more prone to the damage by free radicals, which are particularly abundant in the skin since it is exposed to the elements and chemical assaults. Thus, CoQ10 may boost skin repair and regeneration and reduce free radical damage. Furthermore, CoQ10 is a small molecule that can relatively easily penetrate into skin cells.

Based on this rationale as well as the drive to put new products on the marker, some companies introduced skin care products with CoQ10. It is unclear whether these products are effective. Firstly, theoretical effectiveness does not always result into practical benefits. Second, very few real studies indicating possible practical skin benefits of CoQ10 have been conducted so far. Arguably, the most encouraging was a 1999 study by German researchers who reported that long-term use of CoQ10 reduced crows feet (wrinkles around the eye). CoQ10 has been used in thousands of studies on cellular aging. Because our formulas use live CoQ10 and it is drawn to the dermal level, the anti-aging and collagen production and decrease in free radicals, is seen on the deepest cellular level one can obtain through the skin.


DMAE may be best known by its reputation as an oral cognitive supplement, but it also has a great effect on skin. Topical creams that include DMAE aid in tightening the muscles that keep your skin looking healthy to diminish the appearance wrinkles, lines, and sagging. DMAE performs two different roles in the body. It both produces the neurotransmitter acetylcholine in the brain and acts as an antioxidant cell membrane stabilizer. DMAE’s antioxidant action comes from this ability to strengthen the cell membrane. DMAE can do this because its structure allows it to insert itself between components of the cell plasma membrane and help protect the cell from free radical attack. When DMAE functions as an antioxidant and helps keep the cell membrane intact, this reduces stress to the cell and inhibits production of arachidonic acid and other chemicals responsible for pain and inflammation.


Hma (Micro Algae factor) is a unique concentration of natural active ingredients, extracted from the essence of Micro Algae. It is an effective hydrating agent and can help in strengthening the mechanisms of skin defense. It has deep moisturizing action while strengthening the defense qualities of the skin barrier, thus giving extraordinary softness and brightness.
In addition, Hma is rich in Vitamin B1, B2, B12 and niacin, which can increase the skin's energy and protect the skin to stay away from all kinds of pressure. With its absolute compatibility with the skin, it doesn't irritate, and provides moisture for all types of skin in all climates.


Lipoic acid is a well-known natural substance found in certain foods and also produced in the human body. It has an impressive array of potentially beneficial mechanisms of action:

(1) It is a potent and versatile antioxidant. 
(2) It is a co-factor in a key biochemical pathway responsible for energy production in the cells (citric acid cycle). 
(3) It inhibits cross-linking which is the formation of chemical bridges between proteins or other large molecules.
Cross-linking contributed to the aging process by causing hardening of arteries, wrinkling of the skin and stiffening of joints.
(4) It has moderate anti-inflammatory effect.
(5) It has a capacity, albeit a modest one, to neutralize and remove from the body a variety of toxic metals.

How does topical lipoic acid fare in clinical studies department? Well, at this point it holds a junior position. In one small-scale study, high potency lipoic acid reduced mild-to-moderate wrinkles by up to 50 percent, whereas fine lines have almost disappeared. In another study, lipoic acid significantly improved the appearance of certain types of scars.

If further studies corroborate skin benefits of lipoic acid, it may become one of the mainstays of today's anti-aging skin care. In fact, lipoic acid will be especially welcome in the family of proven wrinkle fighters because it is less irritating than tretinoin (Retin A, Renova) and hydroxy acids. (Therefore it can be used, albeit in lower concentrations, in delicate and wrinkle prone area around the eyes.) Dr. Nicholas Perricone, a Yale dermatologist, has published several research studies that suggest topical application of alpha lipoic acid is effective in reducing the appearance of wrinkles, and he has created his own skincare line with products that contain high concentrations of alpha lipoic acid.


Retinol and retinyl palmitate are among the most widely used active ingredients in skin care  Both retinol and retinyl palmitate are forms of vitamin A (along with yet another form retinaldehyde). As opposed to many other vitamins, vitamin A does not have much of a direct biological effect. It works via its active metabolite (biochemical derivative) called retinoic acid. Only retinoic acid and its analogs collectively called retinoids have direct effect on skin cells and can adjust their physiology toward a more youthful state. In fact, retinoic acid a.k.a. tretinoin is the active ingredient in Retin A and Renova - some of the best-known anti-wrinkle creams.

Retinol when applied to the skin is thought to work both by stimulating new collagen formation as well as preventing the breakdown of existing collagen. It appears to have a stimulatory effect on the fibroblasts that produce collagen as well as an inhibitory effect on enzymes that break down the collagen support structure. What makes retinol unique is that its molecular structure is small enough to allow it to penetrate the skin, which is a limiting factor for some skin care ingredients. If a substance can’t penetrate the epidermis and gain access to the dermis, it’s not going to have any real effect on skin aging. There are a handful of chemical products on the market that use enhanced delivery methods that can do this and are very dangerous to the long term health of the user internally and the cellular structure of the skin.

Thus, one major benefit of natural live retinol that distinguishes it from other skin care ingredients is its ability to reach the areas of the skin where it can actually have an effect on collagen production and breakdown.


There have been a number of encouraging studies of skin benefits of green tea. Animal studies showed protection from skin cancer. Both animal and human studies have credibly demonstrated that topical green tea formulations reduce the effects of UVA- and UVB-induced sun damage.

Green tea appears to exert sun damage protection by quenching free radicals and reducing inflammation rather than by blocking UV rays. Therefore, green tea may synergistically enhance sun protection when used in addition to a sunscreen. EGCG in particular, a prime component of green tea, provides broad-spectrum protection against UV light-induced DNA damage and immune system dysfunction of the skin.

Topical green tea extract is exceptional in preventing the inflammation and oxidative stress associated with UV light-induced skin damage. As a result, scientists believe green tea may help prevent skin cancers that commonly result from exposure to the sun's radiation. Numerous studies have shown that topical application of green tea confers broad-spectrum protection against photo damage, one of the leading causes of visibly aged skin. Polyphenols from green tea leaves have been found protect against the adverse effects of overexposure to ultraviolet light.

Green tea appears to exert sun damage protection by quenching free radicals and reducing inflammation rather than by blocking UV rays. Therefore, green tea may synergistically enhance sun protection when used in addition to a sunscreen.


Ten carotenes, colored molecules synthesized only in plants, show vitamin A activity. In other words, they function like vitamin A. However, only the alpha- and Beta-Carotenes and cryptoxanthin are important to man, and Beta-Carotene is the most active. Beta-Carotene and other carotenoids that can be converted by the body into retinol are referred to as provitamin A carotenoids. Hundreds of different carotenoids are synthesized by plants, but only about 10 % of them are provitamin A carotenoids.

Beta-Carotene also helps prevent night blindness and other eye problems, skin disorders, enhance immunity, protects against toxins and cancer formations, colds, flu, and infections. It is an antioxidant and protector of the cells while slowing the aging process.


Hyaluronic Acid occurs naturally in the deeper layers of our skin (the dermis). It helps to keep skin smooth and "plump" through its ability to hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water. Hyluronic acid also plays a critical role in the rapid repair of wounds and other skin conditions.

In Yuzuri Hara, a village in Japan, ten percent of the population is 85 or older. Diseases of aging, such as cancer, diabetes and Alzheimer's, are virtually unknown. People rarely see a doctor and their skin rarely shows signs of aging. They live long, healthy active lives. As reported on the ABC News program 20/20, researchers have discovered the ‘magical’ ingredient that appears to keep people in Yuzuri Hara young. It is hyaluronic acid, which is found naturally in the carbohydrate foods that are unique to the hilly terrain of this village.


Resveratrol is a powerful antioxidant seen in many plants like red grapes and peanuts. The antioxidant benefits of Resveratrol help to slacken the process of aging by scavenging the damage causing free radicals from the body. The free radicals would damage the cells and tissues of the body resulting in wrinkles and cell fatigue. Free radicals are highly reactive unpaired electrons that weaken the other molecules of the body to set off more such free radicals leaving the body aged and weak.  Recent studies have proved that resveratrol skin ensures protection from the harmful UV radiations making the skin radiant and healthy.

Resveratrol plays a key role in anti-aging skin care because it thwarts the free radical damage, making the skin smooth and soft It also enhances circulation by improving the cardio muscular health, which in turn also results in smooth and wrinkle free skin. Facial creams containing Resveratrol have been shown to reverse the process of aging by making the sin smooth and wrinkle free. Being a natural product, it is free from any side effects or allergies. Resveratrol also enhances the capillary circulation in the tissues making it smooth and healthy.


Preliminary research indicates that a biopolymer from oat called beta-glucan may be capable of both penetrating deep into the skin and delivering significant skin benefits. Beta-glucan is a linear polymer consisting of glucose molecules linked together in a particular fashion.

It has a long history of safe use in skin care and dermatology as a  long-lasting, film-forming moisturizer. It has also been shown to work as anti-irritant and to speed up healing of shallow abrasions and partial thickness burns. Beta-glucan appears to enhance wound healing through several mechanisms including the stimulation of collagen deposition, activation of immune cells and so forth. Beta-glucans are found in various natural sources, such as cereals and yeast; oat beta-glucan being the most active.

While the utility of beta-glucan in moisturizing and healing minor wounds and burns has been fairly well established, the evidence of its anti-wrinkle effects on the intact skin has emerged only recently. In a 2005 study published in the magazine of International Federation of Societies of Cosmetic Chemists, Dr Pillai and colleagues investigated skin penetration and anti-aging effects of topical oat beta-glucan. In a penetration experiment on isolated skin sections, the researchers found that beta-glucan penetrated the epidermis and reached the dermis by passing in the gaps between cells. After 8 hours of treatment with 0.5% beta-glucan solution, 28% of the applied beta-glucan entered the skin and as much as 4% reached the dermis (i.e. the layer where wrinkles form). Dr Pillai and colleagues also treated 27 subjects with 0.1 % topical beta-glucan or placebo twice daily for eight weeks, assigned randomly, using a half-face design. By the end of the study, beta-glucan treated areas fared significantly better than placebo, with wrinkles and roughness diminishing by about 10-15%. Skin firmness (tensile strength) also increased.


Gotu Kola (Centella asiatica [Latin]), also known as centella and Indian pennywort, is a creeping vine found growing tropical and subtropical climates in Africa, Asia, Australia, India and South America, and even the southeastern United States. It has been used for thousands of years in ayurvedic medicine to improve memory and maintain a healthy central nervous system, and recent clinical studies support this tradition. Indian ayurvedic tradition also recommends gotu kola to treat a wide range of skin diseases, from mild inflammation to leprosy. Surprisingly, modern research supports the use of gotu kola as a treatment for leprosy. This herb not only acts as an anti-inflammatory, but also helps strengthen the veins and capillaries that supply blood to new tissue at the injury site, two qualities that make this an excellent treatment for skin ulcerations. In addition, gotu kola contains an active ingredient called asiaticoside, which helps dissolve the protective coating around leprosy bacteria so that the system can destroy them.

Topical preparations containing gotu kola regulate collagen production and inhibit excessive scar formation. Studies have reported that gotu kola speeds wound healing and the body’s assimilation of skin grafts. Topical preparations containing gotu kola regulate collagen production and inhibit excessive scar formation. Studies have reported that gotu kola speeds wound healing and the body’s assimilation of skin grafts. Studies suggest that gotu kola may be an effective treatment for other skin disorders as well.

In one study, participants suffering from scleroderma (a condition that causes tissues to harden) reported that taking 20 milligrams of gotu kola extract three times a week made their joints and skin more flexible. Gotu kola has also demonstrated an ability to improve the appearance of cellulite by increasing the body’s production of glycosaminoglycans, compounds needed to form the connective tissues that hold fat in place.

Topical preparations containing gotu kola regulate collagen production and inhibit excessive scar formation. Studies have reported that gotu kola speeds wound healing and the body’s assimilation of skin grafts. Gotu kola is included in a handful high-end commercial topical creams used to promote wound healing, collagen production, or to reduce the appearance of cellulite.


Panthenol is an ingredient often used in cosmetics and topical medications. It is converted to vitamin B5 in the body and sometimes called "provitamin B5." Although any chemical can be dangerous at sufficiently high exposure levels, panthenol is "safe as presently used in cosmetics," as concluded by a study in the "International Journal of Toxicology."

Panthenol is the alcohol form of vitamin B5 and is soluble in water. It is hygroscopic, meaning that it absorbs moisture from the air. This is part of the reason it works well as a moisturizer. Panthenol is converted to vitamin B5 in the body when ingested or absorbed through the skin. Typically, panthenol-containing products soothe skin irritation rather than causes it. In fact, it is used in acne treatments and smoking-cessation products to counteract the irritation that can be caused from their active ingredients.


Also known as Lycium barbarum fruit, goji berries have been grown in China, Tibet and Mongolia for ages. The oblong-shaped berries are bright red and contain 20-40 tiny seeds, and can be eaten raw, or made into a juice or wine, brewed for tea, or prepared as a tincture. But it’s the extracted phytochemicals used in nutritional supplements that provide the most potent health benefits Goji berry has been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) for thousands of years as a health tonic to promote overall health and healthy eyesight, strengthen the immune system, protect the liver, improve circulation and sperm production, and to enhance sexual performance.

It has also been used as a remedy for diabetes, anemia, tinnitus, and lung diseases. In TCM terms, goji berries are sweet in taste and neutral in nature, they act on the liver, lung, and kidney channels and enhance “chi” or life force. Goji berry continues to be a revered and popular health tonic in China. In fact, in 1983 the Ministry of the Public Health of China approved goji berry to be marketed as a botanical medicine. It is believed to boost your immune system, circulatory system, proves great for liver and kidney protection, improves your vision, and works wonder for your skin.

Gojies are surely very rich in vitamins and minerals but what is more it is also the best in Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) scale. It is used to measure the antioxidant levels in any food. And studies have revealed that they contain 25000 units per 100 milligrams which is about five times more than the fruit (prunes) that comes second on the scale and about 15 times more than the vegetable that comes second on the list. It is true that Goji berries have just found application in topical uses, yet you can find it being used in a wide range of skin care products right form creams and lotions to every other product. And that is why most of the new natural skin care product has Gojies as its ingredient.


As we grow older we no longer have the same skin complexion we once had. While the quality of your skin is based on genetics, you can improve your skin by taking good care of it. Studies show that acai berry supplements have been linkedto more beautiful, healthy, and youthful skin. This is primarily due to its high antioxidant content. Regardless of whether it is used as a topical cream or as an oral pill, acai berry supplements can nourish the skin and improve skin tone. We often cover our face with creams made from multiple chemicals, not all of which are beneficial to the body. Acai berry is a natural product and improves the body's ability to heal itself by removing harmful free radicals in the body. In addition to antioxidants, acai supplements contain phytonutrients and vitamins for proper skin regeneration. Acai supplements are
available in multiple forms depending your preference for capsules, drinks or topical creams.

Acai supplements are heralded as anti-aging drugs because of the high concentration of natural skin enriching compounds. Acai extract contains phytoserols, which are known to protect collagen and increase the skin's moisture. Collagen is necessary to provide structural support to the skin and acai supplements can help in the formation of new collagen. They also contain flavonoids to fight inflammation and preserve the skin.


If you’re interested in "anti-aging secrets" you will want to learn about mangosteen. No other tropical fruit has been found to contain as high concentrated doses of antioxidant vitamins, known as xanthones, with the power to nourish, transform your skin, and reverse the signs of aging. Mangosteen Fruits (Garcinia mangostana) is found primarily in Southeast Asia, parts of South America and the Philippines. Although the fruit can be eaten fresh or dried, it is its juice that has grown in popularity. The exotic fruit juice can be used topically on your face and dried juice powder can be used to mix in an anti aging cream.

Aside from the well known health benefits of this fruit, an enormous amount of modern study and research has been channeled toward unlocking the anti aging skin care secrets of this remarkable fruit. Xanthones are found in abundance throughout the entire fruit, but with the greatest amount being found in the pericarp or inner rind of the fruit. Xanthones are 100 times more powerful antioxidants than vitamin A, C & E. The antioxidant properties of xanthones are now available in anti aging skin care. Xanthones, have properties, which help to heal cells damaged by free radicals, slow aging, and ward off degenerative diseases. It is the latest miracle fruit, having great anti-oxidizing benefits which in turn help to control the aging process. This Asian fruit, packed with naturally occurring xanthone, can help:

(1) Stimulate collagen protein production to strengthen the skin matrix.
(2) Combat the effects of Free Radicals and Inflammation.
(3) Anti aging – Pure mangosteen pericarp oil can give topical skin nutrition
     to sooth, energize, and protect skin.
(4) Bring balance and helps in signs of inflammation in problem skin.

POMEGRANATE EXTRACT: [Article by Howard Murad, MD1]

Pomegranate juice and cocktails are all the rage these days, but did you know pomegranate extract isn't just good for your health. It also is good for the skin. Since my early days as a dermatologist, I've studied the ability of various antioxidants to protect the skin. However, the most potent antioxidant power I've found is in the pomegranate: in the form of ellagic acid. A powerful free radical scavenger, ellagic acid is extremely effective in increasing the body's built-in antioxidant, glutathione, which helps protect DNA from free radical damage.

Glutathione also is essential in helping the body recycle hormones, such as estrogen, which also protects skin cells. I first began studying the effects of pomegranate extract in the early 1990s. Intrigued by the powerful benefits of pomegranate extract, I theorized that it could play a significant role in protecting the skin from all types of environmental damage, specifically ultraviolet rays.

Natural UV Protection. To prove this theory, I initiated an independent pilot study to determine the effect of pomegranate extract in improving the sun protection factor of sunscreens. In 1999, I asked an independent laboratory to test the effect of pomegranate extract on the sun protection factor of volunteers. Thirty-two subjects (male and female, ages 18 to 60, with fair to medium skin types) used pomegranate extract orally and topically. Adding pomegranate extract to skin care products boosted the SPF of the sunscreen formula by 20 percent. Over and above that, ingesting a 15 mg tablet of standardized
pomegranate extract provided an additional 25 percent improvement in the SPF.

Research Findings: In 2000, the Journal of Agricultural Food Chemistry covered research by a team from South Dakota University. These researchers reported that when applied topically on mice, pomegranate oil inhibited papilloma incidence and activity.

In the fall of 2003, researchers at the University of Wisconsin evaluated pomegranate's anti-skin tumor effects by comparing the topical application of pomegranate extract on neonatal mice against TPA-induced markers, a strong promoter of chemically induced skin cancer. Applying extract onto the skin of neonatal mice 30 minutes before the TPA application significantly inhibited TPA-mediated increases in skin edema and hyperplasia, researchers found. They also tested the pomegranate extract on TPA-induced skin tumor promotion.

The animals pretreated with pomegranate extract showed substantially reduced tumor incidence and lower tumor body burden. In the TPA-treated group, all mice developed tumors at 16 weeks, while only 30 percent of the mice treated with pomegranate extract exhibited tumors at that point. Perhaps the most extraordinary result of these studies is the discovery of pomegranate's age-proofing capabilities and healing benefits. When taken orally, this ingredient boosts the SPF rating of topical sunscreens so that the same SPF protection levels are maintained, using fewer chemicals and more antioxidants.

If you ask a hundred doctors to name a natural antioxidant, about eighty will bring up vitamin E. Indeed, vitamin E is one of the best-known antioxidants found in the human body. Its key biological function is to protect lipids from oxidation and free radical damage. Lipids are the building blocks of cell membranes and other important biochemical structures. Lipid-based entities are so vulnerable to oxidation that if left unprotected, they disintegrate in a matter of hours. Therefore, a lipid protector, like vitamin E, should be a good and necessary thing.

Vitamin E is the major lipophilic antioxidant in plasma membranes and the primary antioxidant of the skin barrier. It works synergistically with vitamin C and coenzyme Q10 in the antioxidant network. Vitamin E consists of eight naturally occurring molecules: four tocopherols and four tocotrienes. Tocopherol is the most abundant form of vitamin E in humans and is used in treating yellow nail syndrome, vibration disease, epidermolysis bullosa, claudication, cutaneous ulcers, collagen synthesis and wound healing.  It also can be used to prevent cancer and heal wounds. Clinical studies have shown vitamin E to have a topical photoprotective effect.  Combined in sunscreens, vitamin E has decreased UV erythema, edema, sunburn and lipid peroxidation. It also can help prevent chronic reactions to UV rays, such as wrinkling and skin tumors.

To be effective in providing antioxidant protection to the skin, the concentration of alpha-tocopherol in topical formulations should be greater than 0.1 percent. Other than vitamin E's photoprotective effects, little clinical evidence is available to show the effectiveness of vitamin E in treating specific dermatologic disorders.

Topical vitamin E preparations are used widely to improve or prevent scarring, but two controlled studies failed to show scar prevention with vitamin. In terms of skin health and skin care, vitamin e benefits are numerous. In fact, skin care products that contain vitamin e have become an essential part of healthy skin care. First of all, because of its antioxidant activity, vitamin e is vital in protecting skin cells from ultra violet light, pollution, drugs, and other elements that produce cell damaging free radicals. It is believed that vitamin e is most effective in its natural alcohol form rather than its acetate form where it is a less effective antioxidant. Watch for this in the labeling of skin care products. The benefits of vitamin e for healthy skin care also include its ability to regulate vitamin a in the body, which itself is important for healthy skin. Vitamin e added to lotions, creams, and other skin care products plays a role in the anti-aging of skin. It helps skin look younger by reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Also, free radicals are believed to play an important role in skin aging and therefore the antioxidant activity is quite valuable for this skin problem.


Noni juice benefits are not only limited to various aspects of good health, but also extent to healthy skin care. Noni juice has several key ingredients that have been scientifically proven to be beneficial for good skin health and skin healing. Some of these key ingredients are linoleic, linolenic, and arachidonic - three essential polyunsaturated fatty acids for the body. The human body cannot manufacture these components and therefore the best source is from food. The main benefits of these fatty acids with respect to the skin are that they counteract skin trauma, prevent dry skin, and allow skin to maintain it’s integrity. Therefore, a reduction in the signs of skin aging is one of the many noni juice benefits. There are other naturally occurring ingredients in noni that provide noni juice benefits for the skin. Glycerol and butyric acids are useful in combating excessively dry and rough skin. Caprylic and capric acids present in the juice combine with glycerol to form triglyceride compounds in the body. Triglycerides lubricate the skin as well as the scalp and hair and also work in conjunction with other nutrients present in the juice to ensure skin maintains its smoothness, plumpness, and young looking appearance. In one survey performed by a physician, out of 877 people that used noni juice specifically to enhance their skin, 78% reported positive noni juice benefits.

Noni juice also contains scopoletin, which has anti-inflammatory and histamine-inhibiting effects. Anti-inflammatories can be used for some skin conditions. Histamine-inhibition is very usual for treating hives, allergic skin reactions, and dermatographism. Normally anti-histamine medications are prescribed. However, drinking this juice allows you to treat histamine related skin conditions in an all-natural way.

Dermatographism is the appearance of hives or raised welts on the skin surface in response to friction on the skin or applied pressure. The body releases histamine in response to the friction and welts appear in the shape or pattern of the applied pressure or friction. Because noni juice is histamine inhibiting, it is an all-natural way to lessen the symptoms of dermatographism. In addition, because the benefits of noni juice work down at the cellular level, it may help to combat the cause of the dermatographism problem. Suffers of dermatographism often need to be on anti-histamines for long periods of time. Because of the concerns with side effects of prescription anti-histamines, using an all-natural product and utilizing the noni juice benefits, makes a lot of sense.

In addition to taking noni orally, the noni juice benefits can be experienced by using noni juice topically for skin conditions. Topical application is also beneficial for the rest of the body because of noni’s ability to penetrate the skin to reach problem areas inside the body.


Creatine is found naturally in the body and provides energy to cells, improving athletic performance and enhancing strength. But Creatine has skin benefits, too. Creatine in skin cells helps trigger the mitochondrial function that renews skin. Unfortunately, over time, Creatine naturally becomes depleted in skin cells. As a result, skin renewal functions slow, leaving your skin open to accelerated aging and damage from a variety of sources. The live ingredient creatine has a significant effect on maintaining the health of elderly skin that has become stressed. It stimulates the energy exchange rate of skin that declines with age and thereby supports the skin’s natural functional mechanisms. However creatine also does more than this. It surrounds the skin cells and protects them from external attack. This way, irritated skin is protected against further damage.


Comprehensive anti-ageing. Teprenone works on the origin of youth and targets the cell components that ensure lifespan and youth. It improves tissue quality and can extend cell lifespan by one third. Teprenone fights against all signs of aging by improving dehydration, age spots and ineffective barrier function. Teprenone improves skin moisture, redness and pore size, skin roughness and fine lines. The overall texture and health of the skin improved and restored to a more youthful state. Think of it as a healthy-cell multivitamin.


Aloe vera pulp is the clear, thick substance inside of the Aloe vera leaf. (It is often called Aloe vera gel, but it is usually treated before it is used in cosmetics). Aloe vera juice is made by liquefying Aloe vera pulp. Aloe vera gel is made by adding a thickener such as Irish moss to Aloe vera juice. Aloe vera oil is made by extracting oil-soluble portions of the Aloe vera plant into a light vegetable oil, such as safflower oil. Aloe vera juice, gel and oil can be used in cosmetics.

Aloe is used in many high end products because of its ability to stimulate healthy cell growth and repair damaged tissues. Most people think of using Aloe only on their skin because that is all they know about.

It is an excellent skin moisturizer that keeps the skin flexible by giving oxygen to the cells, which in turn increases the strength and synthesis of skin tissue. It is helpful in removing dead skin cells and has the ability for effective penetration and transports healthy substances through the skin.

It's been known throughout history to have medicinal properties, used to cure various ailments and nowadays, the myths surrounding it that go back 5,000 years to the ancient Chinese, Egyptians and Greeks are no longer myths but medical fact. Scientists have found that the Aloe Vera gel is a mixture of antibiotic, astringent, coagulating agent, pain inhibitor, cell growth stimulator and scar inhibitor. It contains a total of 70 essential ingredients.

Studies in Europe and the U.S. have demonstrated that supplemental Ester-C may counter many of the effects of aging, husbandry and stress with it's far-reaching nutritional properties.  Recent studies provide strong evidence that vitamin C can protect and even correct damage caused by aging, lifestyles and environmental stress, such as UV radiation and chemical pollutants. Unfortunately, when ordinary vitamin C is formulated into the emulsions typical of most cosmetic products, it rapidly degrades. Thus the benefits of this essential vitamin are lost. Recently Blackbox introduced a breakthrough Ester-C product that will complement the various dietary supplement formulations containing Ester-C ascorbates. This new liquid concentrate,

In the AM Serum, is superior to ordinary vitamin C in shelf life and stability, and is perfectly suited for cosmeceutical formulations due to our vacuum sealed bottles.  Studies have shown that it penetrates to the levels of the skin where collagen and other support structures are formed, so that the tone and health of skin are preserved and increased.

Treating Sun Damage Skin with Ester-C:

The Ester-C Vitamin provides a powerful type of antioxidant therapy by repairing skins damaged by the effects of sun exposure. Topical applications of Ester-C, by ways of antioxidant defenses, can increase the production of collagen, which in turn, can thicken the skin and make it stronger against UV rays. Ester C, in it's alternative form hinders the chemicals that cause inflammation. It hinders the chemical by changing arachidonic acid from a supportive inflammatory compound into a cluster of less deteriorating substances.  As opposed to L-ascorbic acid, the regularly known form of vitamin C, Ester C is highly recommended for topical application because L-ascorbic acid is very water-soluble. Vitamin C only goes inside a cell and the damaged areas outside of one.

Typical Feedback from Users

"BlackBox Cosmetics is the best.  Who  needs plastic surgery... I am 51 years old and have the regular wrinkles someone this
age has.  You know, the ones around your eyes, forehead, and mouth.  I started using the products about 3 weeks ago.  I noticed the wrinkles have lessened and I really notice it around my eyes.  In regards to the extra skin that develops above your eyes... after using these products, the skin has tightened up and doesn't sag anymore.  Glad I found BBC before I spent thousands of dollars to look young again. Thanks BBC."

-- T. Kretlow

"The product does everything it says and more, but the biggest difference is when my husband started using it.  He had a rash
around both his eyelids and on the bridge of his nose, to which his dermatologist said it was "sun damage" and there was nothing they could do for it.  After just a month of using the AM and PM Serums, the rash has completely disappeared.  I made the mistake of waiting too long to reorder.  I ran out for a few days and I could tell my skin really missed its nutrients.  I will never, ever, ever let myself run out again."

-- M. Dusak

"I first tried the miro-derm and vitamin C, not because I wanted to look younger (I'm 35), but because I have extremely
sensitive skin that is allergic to just about everything.  I have an underlying medical condition and now try to eat well, and really control my health through diet and staying away from toxins, metals, and chemicals.

Throughout my research, I discovered that 30% of all of the toxins and chemicals that poison us come through our skin.  So it made sense when I started getting sick, that my face started breaking out and I should probably try "natural" face creams. 

Nothing was helping it.  I have tried Aveda, Origins, Philosophy, Dermalogicia, Perricone and every other procuct on the
market that touts itself as having "natrual" ingredients.  I broke out twice as bad.

While not usually into writing testimonials, I am writing this because my face has looked so bad for so many years (first
trying dermatologist recommended treatments, then all natural) that people would ask my 10 year old son what was wrong with his Mommy. 

Within 48 hours of using the Infusion Orange morning bottle, everything was gone.  I mean everything.  I had rashes and cysts
in places where I just picked my face... and they were GONE!  For the first time in 6 years, I didn't wear makeup in public.  Not only that, the next time family membrs saw me, they asked how my vacation was.  Normally they ask me how my health is, because I looked like a sick dalmation. 

I had glowing, really glowing skin!  It looked healthy and clear and beautiful.  I also looked younger, which for me was just
a bonus.  People used to look at my eyes, not the dots on my face, and it feels good to  have that back.  Thank you for caring enough to make something really good!

BTW, because I do have a severe allergic condition, other creams would  get absorbed and just cause problems.  This one
didn't! This is a miracle for me."

-- R. Hill

"I can't say enough good things about these products! My friend who hadn't seen me for a year asked me what "procedures" I
had done, because I looked 10 years younger.  She actually though I had botox! 

I had really deep forehead wrinkles that are barely visible now, crows feet that are compltely gone, and the overall tone of
my skin has improved dramatically.  If I have any blemishes on my skin or dry spots, the vitamin C serum heals them almost overnight.  This is probably my favorite product because it feels and works so much like a foundation primer.  I can skip that step of my makeup.  After using it for the VERY first time, I was amazed to see color in my skin. l It's like I spent a day in the sun!  I LOVE IT!!

One use of the facial scrub and I could feel the difference.  My skin is so smooth, like glass, and it lasts for days!  Make
-up goes on so easily and evenly, it"s by far the best facial scrub I have ever used.  The body lotion is amazing too.  I have scaly skin on my shins.  Every winter I get it, and this lotion gets rid of it in less than a week!!   I have never seen a body lotion ANYWHERE that has a retinol product in it!  But the very best thing about these products is that there are no harsh chemicals or preservatives in them.  I am really picky about what I put on my skin and try to use organic, chem free products whenever I can find them, but they are so hard to find.  And then if you can find them, they don't work.  THESE ACTUALLY WORK!!  I am so happy that this is available for me!"

-- M. Powell

"BlackBox Cosmetics: WHERE WERE YOU TWENTY YEARS AGO?  I have used these products for 3 months now.  I am 68 years old, so I
can say from using many different brands of cosmetics, that I have never felt as if my skin was absorbing nutrients that it CRAVED, until I used Infusion AM.  It reminded me of how you feel when you are thirsty for a drink of water; I immediately felt my skin absort it and each time I use it, the sensation is stil the same pleasure.  If I could recommend just one product, I don't know which I would chose.

The Six Minute Miracle is probably the one that is absolutely better than any exfoliating product I have used.  My face is
smooth to the touch for days even after wearing makeup.  I found that I like to rinse my face before and leave my skin moist.  Then I am careful to rinse thoroughly with a warm wash cloth, as directions recommended, to remove.  I absolutely love the way it makes my skin feel. 

My friends are impressed with the way I displayed the BlackBox on my dressing table.  I place the cosmetics in their box at
an angle so all of the pretty bottles are catching the light and they almost sparkle.  Thank you again for allowing me the pleasure, and I would not hesitate to recommend all of the products to any of my loved ones and friends."

-- F. Lloyd

"I got my kit and was so excited, I did the microderm last night and the only thing different from the microderm in a jar and a spa microderm was I was in control of the pressure, which I LOVE!  I'm certified in microdermabrasion and I would honestly never use a microderm machine on anyone again, with having the 6 Minute Miracle at my disposal.  My skin is so soft now, I can't wait for my friends and family to try this.  They are gonna be hooked!!!"

-- Lisa

"I've been using the PM product for several weeks now, and I absolutely love it!  I can see and feel a big improvement in my
skin and look forward to using the other products." 

-- C. Cratty, American Airlines

"I have been using the products now for several days. l really did not have a lot of skin problems, EXCEPT the way the
jawline starts to sag just a little after 40 yrs. old.  There has never been anything that works on that, but THIS DOES!  I can't believe it. My skin just snapped back into place and it does look like at least 10 yrs. younger."

-- R. LaBrie


"I have now been using the products about 2 wks and my skin is still getting better!  I see why this is the only product
that can say "age reversing" and not just the signs of aging but actual repair.  My skin which didn't look like it was thinning away has gotten even thicker & stronger (in a good way).

You know how you lose fat on your face when you age? Well I
am getting that back in the right places, which is a big part of how old a person looks, as you know.  Unbelieveable!!!

I am
such a believer in these products after experiencing them!  Thanks!

R. LaBrie

"Oh WOW!

I am always so careful to listen to product claims, then make my own decisions.  I have used my products 2 times already and
I was hooked after the first application.  Have not used night or scrub, but am amazed!!

Mineral makeup worked wonderful, no glopps-streaks-anything.  Last tests are night product and scrub, and how liquid makeup works.  Then I will be able to tell enyone that I have used BBC and I am blown away.  I have incredible skin and it already
looks better.  I am stunned in a very good way."

-- Mare G.

"I want the new bottle for my son who has horrible acne.  He has been using mine and we've seen a difference in his skin, so
I wanted him to have his own bottle.  Thank you again."

-- N. Roberts


I just got my cosmetics yesterday afternoon, so I tried them last night for the 1st time.  Geez, Louise!!  I emailed you
before that I was a Make Up Artist years ago; so when I saw the ingredients, I KNEW these were going to stand out!  I LOVE these cosmetics!  I just got ready for work and my face is soooo soft... I believe especially from the "6 Minute Miracle".

Love the Frost and the fragrance is so refreshing and beautiful in everything.  I can see why men will like them too.  Not girly or fruity, just beautiful!!  I espcially love that they do not leave any type of residue on your skin, not greasy of "thick."

Thank you, Black Box.  I believe you just gained a customer for life.  Can't wait to start marketing them!  Woohoo"

"Good morning.  I have a friend (Maarten) here in Germany, who is currently personally trying the products.  He told me last
night that the products are working on clearing up/controlling his Psoriasis, which is apparently chronic.  He has tried other products as prescribed by doctors and nothing to date has worked except BlackBox Cosmetics!!  He is signing on as an ISA or maybe has already today.  I don't know yet.

Additionally, I swim everyday in the inside pool here at the hotel in Germany.  Sometimes as much as three times a day,
depending on how hot it is outside!!  The pool is overloaded with chlorine.  Anyway, I decided to give the Defiance PM a personal test under those adverse conditions.  I put the standard (2 pumps) amount on my face and headed straight downstairs.  I was in the water for over 2 hours (off and on).  I rinsed off all of my poor body, with the exception of my face.  I left that with the PM and chlorine on, just to see what would happen. 

I went to bed, and the next morning found out
that my skin was just as soft and healthy looking as the minute I put the serum on my face in the first place.  The Defiance PM serum definately fights off the adverse effects of chlorine (and whatever else they throw into that soup down there) and
doesn't wash off in any way, shape or form!!  Just for information and regards."

-- Craig G.

"I'm loving the face products!  I haven't really needed to wear foundation or powder because my complexion is so good."

-- B. Cotter

"Sooooo...  I tried the BlackBox products... and I LOVE them!!!  Insane, truly amazing stuff! The under eye serum does work. 
I am 33 years old and just starting to get the little fine lines, etc. and I am impressed by the "Magic"!  My mother-in-law and good friend Christie have been trying to con me into handing it over to them... not a chance!  They will have to wait."

-- G. Henke

"Hi... just got my BlackBox Cosmetics... may I say... WOW!!!  I have tried the body lotion and LOVE it!! Love the scent! I
think it is perfect!  Kinda makes my skin shimmer in a healthy way... the scent is perfect... clean but yet nicely scented!  Totally honest, right???

Only after one day.. I am totally sold.  I love the 6 Mnute Miracle... used it on my hands at the
same time... works better than any I have tried.  Both the AM and PM are perfect.  It is all PERFECT, seriously.  I can't wait to see the difference in a month.. as one day seems to have made a big improvement.  Love the airtight jar... first that I have seen... very cool.  Soooo... here is my only complaint... I am going to need more on a regular basis!"

--S. Mudge

"Although I am new to BlackBox Cosmetics products, all I can say is good things about the product line!!  Since I was a
little girl, I was taught to take care of my skin and these products are the BEST I have used by far! The 6 Minute Miracle and Infusion AM leave my skin feeling so soft and clean.  I love Radiance AX and keep a bottle at work and one by my bed.

After 25+ years of looking for the perfect fit for skin care, I've finally found it!! I also want to add... I love the added bonus of "being green" and being able to just re-order the insert refills.  This is such an important element in all aspects of our lives today."
