High Protein Skin Care

neocutis_logoPhysicians have known for many years that fetal skin has a unique ability to heal wounds without scarring. Inspired by this knowledge, medical researchers at the University Hospital of Lausanne, in Switzerland, created a biotechnology process to extract the rich proteins responsible for scarless wound healing from cultured fetal skin cells. Using this fetal skin, a dedicated cell bank was established for developing new skin treatments. Originally the cell extract was used to promote wound healing for burn treatments. Today this same cell bank has been expanded to provide a lasting supply of cells for producing the proprietary skin care ingredients in NEOCUTIS.

Processed Skin Cell Proteins

NEOCUTIS proprietary technology uses cultured skin cells to obtain an optimal, naturally balanced mixture of fetal skin nutrients including cytokines, growth factors and antioxidants. This mixture is called PSP®, which stands for “Processed Skin Cell Proteins”, and it is derived following stringent biotechnology procedures. PSP® provides the most complete and balanced combination of human growth factors and cytokines currently available.

Skin Cell Protein Donation

Since the 1930s, the international medical community has used donated fetal tissue to better understand cell biology and as an essential tool in the development of vaccines, which are credited with saving millions of lives worldwide. The 1954 Nobel Prize for medicine was awarded to researchers who utilized fetal kidney cells to develop the polio vaccine. The view at NEOCUTIS – shared by most medical professionals and patients – is that the limited, prudent and responsible use of donated fetal skin tissue can be used for significant medical benefit to ease suffering, speed healing, save lives, and improve the well-being of many patients around the globe.

The small skin donation that, ultimately, made the development of NEOCUTIS possible originated from a single terminated pregnancy that could not survive to term and was deemed medically necessary by the attending physicians. This voluntary donation to medical research was granted by the parents with their written consent, and was performed in adherence with strict Swiss laws that regulate organ and tissue donations.

NEOCUTIS products do not directly use the originally donated tissue in any way. All the cultured skin cells (grown from a dedicated cell bank) used to produce PSP® have been grown from the initial fetal tissue acquired in 2004. These are not embryonic stem cells. No additional fetal biopsies will ever be required. The cell bank is stored frozen in liquid nitrogen and can be kept for many years, thereby providing a sustained supply of cells for PSP® production over decades. In fact, this cell bank enables the production of some 900 million biological bandages for patients suffering from severe wounds, burns, and other serious skin conditions.

Our Skin is in Permanent Need of Bio-restoration

Our skin is the largest and organs of our body. It establishes, controls, and transmits contacts with the external world. Beyond the classical image of the skin as a barrier organ and providing physical resistance to mechanical stress, it operates as a huge and highly active bio-factory in the synthesis, processing, and metabolism of skin constituents including structural proteins, polysaccharides, lipids and a diversity of signaling molecules. PSP® plays a vital role in not only helping to maintain proper skin function, but to promote skin function at a younger, more rejuvenated level.

Listed below are some of the specialty products NEOCUTIS offers, and that we really like.

BLANCHE Skin Lightening Cream with MELAPLEX® (Hydroquinone USP, 4%)

Neocutis-Blanche-Skin-Lightening-Cream-with-4%-hydroquinone-Powered-by-MelaplexThe formation of skin pigment, called melanin, is complex with multiple pathways. Sun exposure is the primary cause of dyspigmentation/hyper-pigmentation. BLANCHE Skin Lightening Cream uses a combination of 4% Hydroquinone and MELAPLEX® to disrupt skin pigment formation.

Hydroquinone* has long been considered the standard in dermatology for treating skin discoloration. Hydroquinone functions as a tyrosinase inhibitor, blocking one enzymatic step in the formation of melanin pigment.

MELAPLEX® offers a hydroquinone-free alternative for long-term use in the management of skin discoloration. MELAPLEX® is a proprietary skin brightening complex consisting of four ingredients to address skin color from a new perspective. MELAPLEX® helps minimize tyrosinase activity with Phenylethyl Resorcinol—but also contains other ingredients including Leucine, a competitive precursor of melanin formation, Undecylenoyl Phenylalanine to help minimize sun induced melanin formation and Sodium Glycerophosphate, aiming to target several steps of melanin formation including the transfer of the melanosome into keratinocytes. By addressing pigment formation at multiple steps, MELAPLEX® helps reduce the appearance of skin discolorations and visibly brightens skin tone.

BLANCHE was featured as ALLURE BEST OF BEAUTY EDITORS’ BREAKTHROUGH AWARD WINNER for 2009!

*Hydroquinone may not be suitable for long-term use.
