Sytenol® A Clinically Proven to Mitigate Multiple Signs of Acne
Percent reduction in acne was determined by Global Acne Grading System (Burke et al., British J Dermatol, 111:83-92, 1984). This system takes into account both non-inflammatory and inflammatory lesions. Based on the results, formulations containing 1% Sytenol® A reduced acne score by about 57% (Chaudhuri & Marchio, Cosm & Toil, 126:502-510, 2011).
Subjects – 15 x 4 with mild (up to 10 comedones) & moderate (10 to 25)
Duration of the study – 6 weeks
Frequency of application – Twice a day
Assessment of Efficacy –
o Acne score at initial day
o Reduction in comedones after 2, 4 & 6 weeks of treatment
o Reduction in erythema and pruritus after 2, 4 & 6-weeks of treatment
Results – Sytenol® A alone or in combination with Salicylic acid provide statistically significant improvement in acne-affected skin and is well tolerated.

Beauty Influencer @bawbby_ reviews new Revivinol Serum, the first dual powerhouse natural alternative to retinol — without the downsides!
“I just finished my 10th use of Revivinol Serum and I couldn’t wait to finally share my thoughts! My main area of concern was this horrible breakout of red bumps I’ve had on my forehead for TWO YEARS. Nothing I tried would fix it, so I covered it with makeup and airbrushing for photos. But after 10 days with this serum, the bumps are GONE and my skin tone has even improved! My entire face looks and feels the best it has in years. I am completely blown away, I thought nothing would ever work for my stubborn skin! I am being 100% honest when I tell you this serum has changed my life. I feel 110% more confident without those unsightly bumps and my red patches.
…this serum is truly amazing and I will continue faithfully using it and recommending it to EVERYONE. Nothing in my life has ever worked as well on my problematic skin as this serum!”

Sytenol® A - A Functional Analog of Retinol From the perspective of topically applied compositions, a small molecule without having the negatives of Retinol that safely mimics the properties of Retinol (Fisher et al., FASEB J,1002-1013, 1996) is a greatly sought after ingredient.
Volcanic plots illustrate the molecular signatures of Retinol and Sytenol® A of a DNA microarray experiment using reconstructed full thickness epidermis. This shows a very similar overall shape, indicating similar overall modulation of gene expressions in the skin substitute model. Multiple comparative studies revealed Sytenol® A to be the true alternative to Retinol (Chaudhuri, In Cosmeceuticals and Active Cosmetics, 3r Edition, Eds., Maibach et al., Chapter 1, 1-18, 2015) for anti-aging applications and does not have the inherent safety & stability issues of Retinol.
A recent randomized, double-blind clinical study between Sytenol® A and Retinol carried out by UC-Davis Dermatologists demonstrated that both compounds significantly decreased wrinkle surface area and hyperpigmentation, with no statistical difference between the compounds. The Retinol users reported more facial skin scaling, burning and stinging. Authors concluded that Sytenol® A is a more tolerable alternative to Retinol (Dhaliwal et al, British J Dermatology, 2018 Jun 27. doi: 10.1111/bjd.16918).
Clinically Proven to Reduce Multiple Signs of Aging
• Human volunteers – 17; 16 Completed; Age – 41 to 60 yrs; Caucasian (14), Hispanics (2)
• Study duration – 12 weeks
• Test sites – Full face
• Test substance – Lotion with 0.5% Sytenol® A; Contains No sunscreen and No moisturizer
• Application frequency – About 2 g twice a day
• Methodology – Expert grading/Self-assessment by panelists (Grading 0 to 4): (1) Roughness & Dryness; (2) Fine lines & wrinkles; (3) Skin tone; (4) Skin elasticity & firmness; (5) Radiance; (6) Brightening; (7) Overall eye-area appearance; Silicone Replica Analysis: Wrinkle depth & Skin roughness; Photography: Before & after the treatments; Readings were taken at baseline, 4, 8 & 12 weeks.
• Statistical Analysis – Statistical significance defined as p ≤0.05
The results clearly showed that, after twelve weeks treatment, significant improvement in lines and wrinkles, pigmentation, elasticity, firmness and overall photo-damage was observed, with no irritating effect on skin. Based on these results and the comparative studies of Retinol and Sytenol® A done by Sytheon, we conclude that Sytenol® A is the first true Retinol-like anti-aging product (Chaudhuri & Bojanowski, Intern J Cosmet Sci, 36(3):221-230, 2014).

What’s all this about blue light?
Blue light is a part of the spectrum of visible light, and is a high-energy, shorter-wavelength light, not to be confused with UVA or UVB rays.
The main source of the blue light we're exposed to is the sun, according to the American Academy of Ophthalmology. However, we also get a significant dose from our screens — phones, tablets, computers - and indoor lighting.
Blue light isn't all bad: it plays a role in maintaining good health, as it regulates our body's circadian rhythm — our natural sleep-wake cycle, and elevates mood and helps memory and cognitive function.
But is blue light damaging your skin?
Indeed there is mounting evidence that blue light does contribute to photo-aging, including discoloration, inflammation, wrinkles, and skin laxity. Studies also suggest that exposure to blue light might stimulate the production of free radicals in skin, which can accelerate the appearance of aging.
What to do about it?
New remarkable Revivinol Serum includes the compound Lumicease Blue, which helps prepare the skin through an adaptive response to light and targets the defense against blue light, UV, and infra-red radiations from phones, tablets and computers, as well as pollutants in the air and other damaging environmental aggressors.
A decrease in appearance of brown spots by 11.7% as well as in the amount of UV spots by 14.1% was observed after 56 days of treatment using Lumicease. Wrinkle volume and average roughness also diminished 21.5% and 13.2% respectively.

FluidiPure 8G is a biomimetic purifying active agent which offers complete protection for the body’s “cutaneous cocoon.” As a glycine and sugar “biovector,” FluidiPure 8G helps to limit the proliferation of microorganisms responsible for cutaneous disorders. Its biomimetic acidifying power helps attacked skin to regain its physiological acidic pH, ensuring its integrity.
When tested in vivo on hair, it reduces the appearance of dandruff, soothes the scalp and eliminates unpleasant odors after 5 and 10 shampoos (clinical study performed on 46 volunteers vs. placebo).
On skin, FluidiPure 8G participates in reducing unpleasant scalp odors while it helps preserves bacteria beneficial to the skin and restore the skin’s natural acidic pH mantle, also helping to reduce skin sensitivity.
FluidiPure 8G also reduces the effects of 5-alpha reductase by 18% compared to a control, helping to regulate sebum and the reduction of hair loss.
