Research and development are important to our company. Our innovative research, along with rigorous quality and purity standards, results in industry-leading products that help you live beautifully.

Our products are formulated to optimize skin health and longevity. UV damage is detrimental to skin health, and as a result, we are interested in creating products that combat its damaging effects on the skin.

We are very proud of the clinical trial we conducted that demonstrates Renew & Protect’s (formerly called Anti-Aging Formula) ability to increase skin resistance to UV-induced sunburn. Recently, a cell culture (in vitro, human dermal fibroblasts) study was completed to dive deeper into how this product is producing its photo-protective effect and the synergistic activity of this unique blend of ingredients.

This research, published in the Journal of Natural Health Product Research, shows that Renew & Protect has a photo-protective effect in human dermal fibroblast cell culture models. This was demonstrated by a reduction in UV-induced cell death in cells treated with our product. It also supports the synergistic effect of the blend of medicinal ingredients within Renew & Protect to provide greater protection against UV-induced cell death than the individual ingredients on their own. Particularly, fish oil (containing EPA and DHA), lutein, and zeaxanthin together were required to achieve the full UVA photo-protective effect of Renew & Protect. Additionally, the researchers delved deeper to gain early insights into how this product may be imparting its photo-protective effect; they found the protective effect may be due to Renew & Protect inducing an increase in cellular antioxidant capacity and reduction in the inflammatory response.  These results provide additional support for why Renew & Protect is more effective at protecting against UV-induced damage than a basic fish oil supplement.

We would like to congratulate Dr. Steven Hall, our former Research Scientist on this incredible research. Click here to read the full study.
