Some 11-12 years ago I had the opportunity to help a chemist in Southern California launch a new anti-aging product that contained a new ingredient under the trademark name of Matrixyl by Sederma. Matrixyl is an amino-peptide that was proven through extensive studies to create dramatic changes in the appearance of aging skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkle, age spots and skin firmness by synthesizing collagen production. It was the most advanced ingredient in the anti-aging line-up of skincare formulations.
As we age and collagen production decreases peptides are vital to our cellular function because they support the skin’s collagen, strengthen and rebuild the skin, and improve photo-damage and wrinkling.
I immediately feel in love with this product. My skin felt and looked better just after a few days. As our clients began to reorder two at a time I knew we had a winner! Over time the texture of my skin continued to improve.
Several years later we upgraded to a newer formula that contained Matrixyl 3000 that contained two peptides that delivered even better results. How could it be even better I wondered?
Here’s how. As I was approaching my 50’s I began noticing changes in the texture and look of my chest. Ugh! We can cover our face with makeup to look younger but I could not hide my chest. It was looking old and I was horrified! Why was I not using the CSII on my chest I wondered? It was a basic application that I was taught early on in my career! After a few months the results were amazing and definitely something I could measure. The wrinkles had disappeared! Now I started telling everyone about it. CSII became known as the “blue miracle crème”
Fast forward to today and we just launched a newer and improved Collagen Solutions Serum and a nite creme. CS3 has been launched with Matrixyl® synthe’6 or Palmitoyl tripeptide 38.
I was very skeptical of changing. Anita and I began using this newer version and I sampled a few long time clients. I noticed Anita’s skin looking more radiant. 2 days after giving Roxanne a sample she emailed me and said “The product sample you gave me that goes under my moisturizer I feel it is doing some good already can you send me a bottle?”
This powerhouse peptide dramatically smoothes and refines skin. Noticeable improvements are visible in 4 key ways:
• Reduces wrinkle volume by up to 21%
• Reduces wrinkle depth by up to 19%
• Increases skin smoothness
• Increases hydration levels
CS3 serum $60 1 oz CS3 Nite Crème $60 2oz
