SerumScoop: Tips, tricks and news
Marula Oil is a miracle-working luxury facial oil, which deeply moisturizes, nourishes, soothes, and rejuvenates the appearance of skin.
This rich lipid is derived from kernels of the fruits of the namibian Marula tree. Marula fruit is sometimes referred to as the "drunk elephant" fruit since the story goes that elephants love the taste and when they eat too much of it, the fermented fruit makes them wobbly!
This antioxidant-rich oil is mostly composed of oleic acid and linoleic acid but also contains procyanidin, catechins and flavanoids.
This highly absorbable, non-greasy oil reverses visible signs of aging, and provides incredible antioxidant benefits to combat environmental stressors and free radicals. Skin will drink in this nutrient-rich oil leaving no residue behind.
Virgin Marula Oil is cold-pressed using unheated water extraction, which ensures the oil remains nutrient-dense and stays fresher longer.
It's a primary component in our very versatile, all-purpose, inexpensive elixir Weightless Dry Lipid Serum for face, neck, body, hair, beard, scars, stretch marks, hands, nails, and cuticles.
All of our serums perform different functions,
and all of them can work together.
A few of them pair together more intuitively.
Here's a breakdown.
FOR HAIR & SCALP
All of our hair stimulating products work wonderfully together.
• Our "hero product" RevivHair Stimulating Serum is applied daily, and is a leave-in serum.
• RevivScalp Rejuvenating Scalp Serum Masque is a pre-shampoo serum and is left on the scalp for 10-30 minutes before shampooing.
• Our RevivHair Stimulating Shampoo & Conditioner and remarkable new RevivHair Placode Booster Serum (used 3-4 times a year) round out this product line perfectly.
• RevivLash Lash & Brow Stimulating Serum targets eyelash & eyebrow density & fullness.
We recommend using all these products together to address hair loss and thinning hair issues. For the budget-conscious, landmark RevivHair Stimulating Serum would be the first choice.
FOR THE FACE
Our latest invention, TelomErase 6-in-1 Multi-Corrective Serum is the current benchmark. We recommend this stellar treatment serum to all our customers.
TelomErase Serum has the same base as our very-popular Ultimate Serum, but also has instant skin tightening, more wrinkle blurring, and the latest in long-term anti-aging telomere support. It is also even more moisturizing than the Ultimate Serum. Many customers have "graduated" to this new serum.
Not to discount renowned Ultimate Serum: it has a number of novel ingredients not found in TelomErase, like alpha-arbutin for brightening and extra stem cells, growth factors & peptides for long-term anti-aging. It's also a favorite of customers who have previously used TNS® Essential Serum from SkinMedica®. If you use these two serums together, we recommend TelomErase in the morning, and Ultimate Serum at night.
Phloretin Serum is unique, and a rather standalone product that we always recommend. Both TelomErase Serum and Ultimate Serum contain a Vitamin C Ester, Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate, but it is in small concentration compared to our Phloretin Serum. We lose a teaspoon of collagen from our faces every year after age 30, and vitamin C is required to build that collagen. The "gold standard" is ascorbic acid, included with the Phloretin Serum. Because of its low pH, it cannot be included in most other products because it would negatively affect actives like growth factors, peptides, and other delicate proteins, and it would degrade quickly if we were to buffer the pH. Its low pH is also why it works so well, since it has an exfoliating effect in addition to collagen building.
Here's a blog post about the subject: All about Vitamin C Serums, and why ours is best
We recommend waiting at least thirty minutes after applying the Phloretin Serum before applying our TelomErase Serum, Ultimate Serum or any product that contains delicate growth factors since the lower pH of the Phloretin Serum (even at 5% strength, and especially at 20% strength) may lessen the effectiveness of the growth factors. We recommend the following regimen: applying the Phloretin Serum in the morning, and the growth factor serum(s) at night.
Since hydration is different than moisturization, and most skin is dehydrated, we also always recommend our remarkable HA7X Multi-Molecular Hydrator Serum for hydration & plumping, as well as its anti-pollution & anti-stress effects (one of the great benefits of the award-winning Neurophroline® ingredient).
Our Copper Healing Serum contains a great copper peptide that is a wonderful active for skin. Because it generally cannot be combined in high concentration with vitamin C, it is a standalone product. It is not necessary to apply the copper peptide in the Healing Serum every day to achieve results (targeting inflammation, healing, and overall rejuvenation). You might reserve daily use of Healing Serum more to address specific, acute issues that may arise, like irritation, sunburn, rash, windburn, post-procedure, etc.
OTHER PARTS OF THE BODY
All of our facial serums can be used on the neck, hands and chest. TelomErase Serum can be applied to the upper eyelid area, but be careful not to get it in your eyes.
Our RevivSculpt Transforming Body Serum is, of course, meant for the body, but can also be used on the face although it is a bit occlusive.
All our facial serums can be applied to the lips with the exception of Phloretin Serum.

New RevivSculpt Transforming Body Serum is in the relatively new category of "adipose management" and body sculpting cosmetics.
Novel ingredients in our new body serum target adipose, including phytochemicals like epigallocatechin-3-gallate, and thermogenic agents like methylxanthine, theobromine and cynara scolymus (artichoke) bud extract, and all have been shown to have an impact on adipose management.
What is "adipose" anyway?
From our colleagues at Happi.com and CoValence Laboratories, excerpts from an article about this burgeoning new segment:
In the new-era of “preventive strikes against cellulite genesis,” adipose management ingredients and products are the future-wave for all cellulite and lipo-fill products, and a far cry from ubiquitous quick-fix cellulite and anti-aging body lotions.
Adipocytes are a major constituent of adipose tissue that controls energy balance by storing triglycerides in periods of energy excess and mobilizing it during energy deprivation.
Adipocytes also secrete numerous lipid and protein factors and are considered to constitute a major endocrine organ. Adipogenesis is the process during which fibroblast-like pre-adipocytes develop into mature adipocytes.
White adipose tissue (WAT) and brown adipose tissue (BAT) are the two most well known types of adipose tissue, along with a few functionally distinct variants such as beige and pink. Different adipose tissues have varying functions. WAT are unilocular cells that store body fat wherein a large lipid droplet is surrounded by a layer of cytoplasm. BAT are multilocular cells that have lipid droplets scattered throughout cytoplasm. The brown color comes from the large quantity of mitochondria present in the cell, which makes them thermogenic cells that protect animals against obesity and metabolic disease. Adipocytes are never lost, even after weight loss. The adipocytes merely gain or lose fat content to adjust for body weight changes. If the adipocytes reach their maximum capacity of fat, they may replicate to allow additional fat storage.
The first product of its type to address slimming, tightening, wrinkle blur, body odors
June 10, 2015/PRNEWSWIRE - RevivSerums.com, a San Francisco-based global leader in cosmetic chemistry innovation, introduces a first-of-its-kind body serum, RevivSculpt™ Transforming Body Serum.
A unique multi-action intensive formula, RevivSculpt reduces the appearance of sags & wrinkles, calms irritation, and firms the skin for a visible lift. Genuine diamond dust works subtly to manipulate light and create a dramatically enhanced “soft focus” effect that blurs imperfections.
"RevivSculpt is a great example of innovative, thoughtful prototyping in cosmetic chemistry," said Dr. Sarah Chisolm, Atlanta-based dermatologist. "There is strong demand for a product that addresses the intended target concerns: sun damage, skin dimpling and nodularity associated with adiposis edematosa (cellulite), wrinkle blurring, skin irritation and body odors."
In a 21-day, 17-person consumer study of RevivSculpt, over 85% of consumers tested noted a reduction in the appearance of stretch marks, dimpled skin & skin roughness, 72% of testers also saw a reduction in the appearance of age spots and discolorations, and 90% agreed that it made their skin more soft or smooth.
While typical body lotions can hydrate skin and help temporarily relieve symptoms, the results are often superficial and can mask underlying problems. RevivSculpt serum targets skin damage, proper skin barrier functioning, and a range of other benefits.
RevivSculpt incorporates a number of novel cosmetic ingredients sourced worldwide, including:
PhytoCellTec™ Argan, based on the stem cells of the argan tree. According to its developer, Mibelle AG Biochemistry Switzerland, it is the very first cosmetic active demonstrating proven efficacy on human dermal stem cells. Studies show that PCT Argan can produce a tightening of dermal connective tissue and a much smoother dermis-hypodermis junction.
SLIMEXIR® is a slimming and anti-cellulite compound that visibly and measurably refines the silhouette. This fast-acting body toner has been shown to increase breakdown of fats by 60%, and inhibit lipid accumulation in adipocytes by 55%, and provides a tightening film on the skin.
Genuine diamond particles manipulate incident light by converting invisible UV light to blue light (photoluminescence) and selectively scattering favorable blue and green light. The particles settle into fine lines and sags to decrease the appearance of wrinkles and give skin the glow of youth, not just the sheen of oil.
Unisooth EG-28 is an innovative bioactive complex blend extracted from oak leaves and green tea and is shown in studies to rapidly reduce irritation in as fast as 15 minutes, reduce trans-epidermal water loss (TEWL), and reduce red and blue color components of skin.
Fluidipure 8G™ fights unpleasant body odors, calms skin, restores the skin's natural pH acidic mantle, decreases the production of sebum, and aids in limiting the proliferation of microorganisms on the skin.
RevivSculpt debuts at an introductory price of $44 for a limited time, a $15 savings off its retail price of $59. It is available immediately at RevivSerums.com with flat-fee shipping.
