SkinCeuticals launches a brand new scar gel aimed at improving the texture and tone of existing scars and preventing new ones from forming. This high-silicone scar gel consists of 95% silicones, 0.5% allantoin, 2% fatty acids, and 1% ultralight silica. Alcohol-, dye-, and fragrance-free, SkinCeuticals’ Advanced Scar Control improves the overall appearance of recent scars by 29% in 12 weeks as seen in clinical trials, with study subjects seeing an improvement in new/recent scar redness, texture, and discoloration.
This vitamin C serum is driven by I-N Beauty’s Intelli-Cell plant stem cell science to help reduce fine lines and wrinkles, dark spots, uneven skin tone, and redness. According to the company, Intelli-Cell is 1000x more potent and sustainable than conventional ingredients. Stem cells from rare plants such as edelweiss, coneflower, and pennywort are extracted to harness their anti-aging and antioxidant effects. Vitamin C may have a bad rap for having a short shelf life and being unstable, but this vitamin C serum is stabilized using I-N Beauty’s technology to remain resistant to discoloration during production, storage, and use.
Elixir Firming Serum from Antedotum aids in collagen restoration, resulting in hydrated and firm skin, free of any signs of hyperpigmentation and sagging. Formulated with a full spectrum cannabidiol (CBD), this firming serum contains 1 of the highest concentrations (500 mg) of cannabinoids, including CBD and cannabigerol (CBG). These plant compounds are rich in anti-inflammatory and antioxidative properties that aid in soothing skin irritation, reducing redness, oil control, and protecting against cell degradation due to their neuro-regenerative properties, according to Antedotum.

KERACELL MD’s Anti-Aging Facial Serum Concentrate features High Potency MHCsc (Multiple Human Cell Stem Cell) Technology, which is formulated with W3 Peptide (Hexapeptide-33), a 3rd generation skin care peptide that targets G-protein-coupled receptors (GPCR).

The serum is equipped with potent bio-active signaling peptides to target damaged sites to assist in restoration and repair. Also, Gatuline Renew works to smooth and hydrate the skin to improve overall skin texture and appearance.
