The beauty aisles are flooded with anti-aging skincare brands that claim to plump, hydrate and erase fine lines or wrinkles - all things to be lauded - but none have the added (and important) benefit of replacing and stabilizing the elastin fibers in our skin. Introducing technology! In addition to hydrating the skin, boosting skin-plumping collagen (the sponge-y protein that gives skin its shape and structure), and protecting from environmental damage, NUFLEX™ does what no other skincare has been able to do: strengthen and build elastin fibers, the stretchy protein that helps our skin retain its youthful elasticity. Here’s what you need to know about this breakthrough skincare discovery that not only combats the signs of aging but delivers transformational youthful-looking skin results.
The trouble with elastin
Both collagen and elastin production decline with age, but our skin has the ability to repair and produce collagen—plus there are topical anti-aging skincare formulas, including Neolastin, that support that process. Treating aging elastin, however, is trickier. Elastin fibers, which are solely responsible for skin’s elasticity and resilience, are rarely, if ever, repaired or replaced (which explains why skin becomes increasingly slack with age)—and creating a topical treatment to repair or regenerate them has, historically, proven elusive.
NUFLEX™ technology in Neolastin has arrived to change that. Created by a team of scientists at Clemson University, NUFLEX™ incorporates a patented blend of a unique polyphenol (antioxidant) called PGG with micro–hyaluronic acid molecules to increases elastin production and deposit new elastin fibers in the skin to improve its stretch and snap-back in as little as 28 days. NUFLEX™ technology is the culmination of more than twenty years of research and is based on successful therapy used by the same team of Clemson scientists to improve elasticity in diseased lungs.
A thoughtful support system
In addition to stabilizing and building new elastin, the antioxidant-rich polyphenols in NUFLEX™ technology also help protect existing elastin from further degradation. These polyphenols, similar to those found in red wine and dark chocolate, scavenge for free radicals, trapping them and preventing them from causing oxidative damage to the elastin. And, to ensure these polyphenols reach their intended target (elastin fibers!) NUFLEX™ uses micro-hyaluronic acid molecules because of their ability to penetrate the skin with precision, trigger fast absorption, and provide long-lasting results.
Start strengthening your elastin
Harness the power of science, and protect your skin from outside environmental damage, with these two Neolastin products that boast NUFLEX™ technology:
Face & Neck Regenerative Serum For best results, apply to clean skin both morning and night.
Rejuvenate and Hydrate Moisturizing Cream Layer this plush formula over the serum to maximize potency of the NUFLEX™ technology.
