Health & Beauty: Anti-aging remedies seem to have been around since the dawn of man and the latest luxury cream on the market claims to have been discovered around that time. Visco-Elastic Transforming Serum™ with Mandelic Acid is said to be the result of Dr. Stanley Jacobs, a facial cosmetic surgeon, of deciphering a 3,600 year-old Egyptian text containing the scientifically-validated secret to youthful skin.
The difference between Dr Jacobs’ serum and other anti-aging products is said to be science, specifically the active ingredient in the serum known as asmandelic acid. Mandelic acid is an alpha hydroxy acid derived from almond extract and a close cousin of glycolic acid. According to the product’s literature, mandelic acid offers the benefit of being a large molecule, which penetrates the skin more slowly, thus reducing irritation.
Trial patients using the serum reported increased viscoelasticity and a resulting improved appearance in the skin. Restored youth in a bottle comes at a luxurious price of $120 for one fluid ounce, which is typically a two- to three-month supply. You can find it and more information at www.StanleyJacobsMD.com.
To create the ancient Egyptian serum, Dr. Jacobs partnered with former vice president of research and development at Estee Lauder, Jules Zecchino.
In addition to the serum, a complete product line is planned, including: daytime moisturizers, facial cleanser, eye cream, night cream, facial scrubs, weekly home peels, acne solutions, sunscreens, and more.
Clinical trials for the super serum are due out later this year.
