Primary Photoaging Product Range, Neova SmartSkincare
Neova SmartSkinCare has launched a new range of six skincare products it says are clinically proven to combat the early signs of photodamage caused by UV exposure and DNA damage. This groundbreaking range made up of serums, moisture-balanced formulas and an eye treatment undo the visible evidence of sun and DNA damage including uneven skin tone and texture, dullness, wrinkles and discolorations. Containing the same DNA repair enzymes awarded the 2015 Nobel Prize in Chemistry and a groundbreaking Copper Peptide Complex based on more than 40 years of research showing increased wound healing and cell growth. The line includes:
Herbal wash. Soap-free, foaming gel cleanser comforts the skin with botanicals including Aloe Vera, Chamomile and Green Tea and helps preserve the natural moisture barrier.
Power Defense Antioxidant Serum. Energizing serum delivers twice the refining power with Retinyl Palmitate, Copper Peptide Complex, and antioxidants to keep environmental damage in check.
Illuminating Eye Serum. Light-diffusing serum with metal cooling applicator instantly and over time de-puffs and relieves dark under eye circles.
Power RE Activator Concentrate [Retinol +EGT]. Two-in-one mighty concentrate combats signs of free-radical and photo damage at once. On its own or blended with moisturizer, it is a daily must. Retinol, the gold standard correcting star, is a cell communicating ingredient. By attaching itself to a cell’s receptor site, it’s able to alter the way that the cell functions, telling it to perform optimally. And because it’s pure retinol, there’s no fear of irritation. L-ergothioneine [EGT], a natural antioxidant and maximized amino acid, is a protector against oxidative damage. Clinical studies show EGT acts faster and is the most efficient natural antioxidant on the ORAC [Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity].
Daily Moisture Rescue: Intense hydration and the correcting power of DNA Repair and Copper Peptides actively preserve skin’s moisture balance all day.
Reformist Night Tx Renewing Moisturizer: Overnight correcting treatment restores skin barrier function, strength and resiliency. neova.com
New in My Practice OTC: Mustela Stelatopia Face Cream
With Latanya T. Benjamin, MD,
Practical Dermatology® magazine is introducing new features: New In My Practice Rx and New in My Practice OTC, both of which serve to educate readers on some of the newest treatments that dermatologists are using in their practice. This month, Miami dermatologist Latanya T. Benjamin, MD, FAAD an Associate Professor of Pediatric Dermatology at Florida Atlantic University, shares her enthusiasm about Mustela’s new Stelatopia Face Cream which she uses on her daughter and herself.
What is Mustela Stelatopia Face Cream?
Dr. Benjamin: Mustela recently added a face cream to their Stelatopia eczema line, which nicely complements the other products in the range. Stelatopia Face Cream contains natural soothing ingredients including ceramides, shea butter, licorice extract, as well Mustela’s patented Sunflower Oil distillate and Avocado perseose. More and more of my patients are seeking natural products, so I’m happy to be able to recommend Mustela because of the clinical efficacy as well as natural composition. I always want to make sure I experience any product that I recommend to my patients and Stelatopia Face Cream is one of my favorite moisturizers to use on my daughter and myself!
How does Mustela Stelatopia Face Cream stand out from other face creams on the market?
Dr. Benjamin: Unlike in the adult category, it’s rare to see a dedicated moisturizing product for children’s faces. Mustela has filled this gap by developing a targeted face cream specifically for babies and children with eczema. Symptoms of eczema often first appear on the face and since the face area is exposed to environmental conditions, which can exacerbate these symptoms, it’s critical to have a specific face care product. Additionally, the company exclusively uses ingredients that are safe for newborn skin and conducts vigorous ethical product testing to ensure safety and efficacy. As a French brand, Mustela abides by European cosmetic regulations, which are considerably stricter than in the US.
How do you suggest that your patients use this product? What other products does it work well with?
Dr. Benjamin: I recommend my patients apply Mustela Stelatopia Face Cream on the affected areas of their face throughout the day. Mustela offers a complete regimen of products for eczema-prone skin, including cleansers, emollients, wipes, bath oil, shampoo, and now even pajamas. The Stelatopia Face Cream can work in conjunction with any of the products in the range.
What type of results are your patients seeing with regular use?
Dr. Benjamin: My patients are seeing dramatic improvement with softness to their skin, less itch, and balanced hydration.
How does skincare fit in with your practice philosophy?
Dr. Benjamin: I believe all products, especially those placed on infants and children, should be safe, gentle and effective. It should be non-irritating with the least amount of chemicals and extra additives if possible. If you can find one formulated with safe natural ingredients, that’s a boon! This is my philosophy of skincare for children.
