HOW IT ALL BEGAN
NEOSTRATA was founded as a brand in 1988, but the research started long before that. The founders of NEOSTRATA, Dr Van Scott and Dr Yu, are internationally recognised pioneers who, among other things, have received an Honorary Discovery Award of the Dermatology Foundation for their outstanding research. The professors are unsurpassed in their field and recognised for their ground-breaking discovery of the importance of alpha hydroxy acids (AHA) to the skin. Over the years, they have made continuous progress, created scientific innovations, and conducted clinical studies published in many major, peer-reviewed medical dermatological journals. Even today, after over 50 years of research, NeoStrata remains at the cutting edge.
FOR HEALTHY CELL RENEWAL
NEOSTRATA has been developed to facilitate the skin's natural exfoliation process, to strengthen the skin and to provide optimal hydration and protection. By stimulating exfoliation and normalising cell regeneration, dead skin cells, which clog the pores and also give the skin a dull, lustreless appearance, are replaced by new cells with a healthier brightness. The result is skin with a fresher and healthier look. NEOSTRATA's treatments and products are designed to suit all skin types and common skin problems such as dryness, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, acne and an imbalance in sebum production. The products are also suitable for the most sensitive skin conditions, such as atopic eczema or rosacea. The philosophy is that even sensitive skin should also benefit from NEOSTRATA's active technologies to minimise the appearance of ageing without irritation. NEOSTRATA also offers skin care for the whole body. All treatments and skin care products from NEOSTRATA improve the skin's cell renewal process, counteract wrinkles, strengthen and moisturise the skin. For the right treatment approach, products and best results, a skin analysis at a NEOSTRATA clinic is recommended.
AHA, PHA AND BIONIC PHA
AHA, alphahydroxy acid, is one of the most widely used and well-documented active ingredients in advanced skin care, with the capacity to gently release the top layer of skin from old cells and stimulate the cellular renewal process. AHA acids also build up the skin's supporting matrix, which makes the skin feel firmer and smoother. PHA, polyhydroxy acid, is a further development of the AHA technology and is often called "next-generation fruit acid". PHA is a highly moisturising ingredient that has also been developed by the creators of NEOSTRATA. Because the molecule is larger, it penetrates the skin slowly. For this reason people with sensitive skin type can also experience the benefits of exfoliation without irritation. Lactobionic and Maltobionic acids, are "Bionic" PHA acids developed by NEOSTRATA that are highly moisturising and help to minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, uneven pigmentation, enlarged pores and uneven skin. Lactobionic acid is also an effective antioxidant.
NEOGLUCOSAMINE & AMINOFIL
NeoGlucosamine is a relatively new technology patented by NEOSTRATA that is based on a naturally occurring amino sugar in the skin. NeoGlucosamine is a building block for hyaluronic acid that helps to plump the skin naturally and helps the skin to become fuller and smoothed from within. NeoGlucosamine gently exfoliates the skin and promotes the formation of new cells, making fine lines and wrinkles less prominent and minimising hyperpigmentation. Aminofil is a patented derivative of amino acid that has been shown to stimulate the fullness and firmness of the skin's supporting matrix. This gives the skin renewed volume, as well as improved firmness, thus making wrinkles and lines less prominent.
ACCUSTOMISATION TO PRODUCTS
A normal side effect when using AHAs is a passing, mild tingling sensation. This is usually a short-term reaction and a sign that the acids are penetrating the skin and is not to be confused with irritation. Usually, these mild reactions diminish within a short time upon continuous use of the products.
