Ultramarine Night Cream

SKU: SK-006
  • The most effective anti-wrinkle product on the market, at any price
  • Same formulation as Estee Lauder Re-Nutriv Re-Creation Night Cream ($1,100/1.7oz)
  • Lab-proven results (on humans): 45% decrease in wrinkle length & density with regular use

When it comes to ultra high-end anti-wrinkle products, savvy consumers should read each brand's ingredients listing to get the best deal. That's because every manufacturer, including us and Estee Lauder (and the 20-odd brands they own, including La Mer, Clinique, Prescriptives, M-A-C, Origins, Aveda, etc), has the same access to state-of-the-art anti-wrinkle technology sold by top European skincare labs.

Meaning the marine-based active complex in our ultramarine night cream is not alas, exclusive to us. You can also get it in Estee Lauder's Re-Nutriv Re-Creation Night Cream, even though in their advertising, Lauder suggests their concoction was discovered by them "in the remote islands of Okinawa" where the "inhabitants' average life expectancy is measured in centuries rather than decades." We must have been dozing when the Discovery Channel did that big story on the 300 year-old Okinawans whose amazing longevity is due to smearing cream on their faces.

But forget about living for centuries. (Do the folks at Estee Lauder think we're all brain-dead or are they just passing around the wacky weed at work on a daily basis?) While we don't claim you'll live forever, we do deliver all the proven anti-aging results of our esteemed competitor--your skin will look significantly firmer, less wrinkled (by up to 45% in length and density) and more youthful. Again, exact same active ingredient complex as theirs, at the same concentration, providing the same lab-proven results.

There is one key difference. Theirs sells for $1,100 for 1.7 ounces while ours sells for $58 for 2 full ounces. But don't spread it around. We're afraid that if the 300 year-old Okinawans hear about it they'll keel over from the shock. (You can see it on the Estee Lauder website by clicking here.)

So about those marine extracts. They really come from the Hawaiian chain, also called the Okinawan chain, and are a form of red algae (Ahnfeltia concinna) that live along the intertidal basalt shores. This natural substance improves the skin's ability to absorb moisture, enhances smoothness and the reduction in appearance of fine surface lines and provides superior skin smoothing properties. It also improves skin firmess & elasticity: in human test subjects, a 20% increase in skin firmness was shown after 4 weeks. Enhanced firming is obviously key to any anti-aging product, because our skin loses elasticity as we age and tends to sag. This effect is especially pronounced under the eyes, and this product is a fantastic under-eye booster.

Two other related key active ingredients are Palmitoyl Oligopeptide (and) Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7, naturally derived plant based ingredients. These actives are sort of the "it-girls" of current wrinkle-reduction science, because they deliver such powerful results. While the previous formulation provided up to a 33% decrease in wrinkle density and length, this formulation provides a whopping 45% decrease, due mostly to the effect on collagen and skin thickness. (Look up these ingredients online if you're skeptical.)

Tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate is a stable, oil soluble form of Vitamin C, excellent for anti-aging products because it reduces melanin (dark spot) synthesis and helps protect against DNA damage caused by UV exposure. Sodium Hyaluronate (or Hyaluronic acid) is a natural ingredient in the skin and body but decreases with age. This material helps in tissue hydration, increases skin smoothness, decreases the appearance of wrinkles, and calms the skin. Like any anti-aging treatment short of plastic surgery, this one works over time: to get the full results, you have to use it daily. The noticeable difference you'll see after 28 days will remain with regular use. Overall, if you can find a better anti-wrinkle/anti-aging product on the market at any price, buy it.

Usage Instructions

A wrinkle is a crease in the skin, which occurs through aging and/or because of environmental factors like sun damage. Aside from plastic surgery or botox or those nasty peeling products, you can't actually get rid of wrinkles. All that any anti-wrinkle product like this one can do is to diminish their appearance, and the way they do that is to shrink and plump them, like a raisin that has been dropped in a glass of water. Over an hour or so, it will absorb some of the water and "plump" up, returning (mostly) to its original grape-like form so that the creases largely disappear. That's the principle behind this product. As your skin absorbs it, the fine lines and wrinkles begin to decrease in length and density. This process occurs over time, however, and optimal results are obtained only after 28 days of use. These results will be maintained with sustained use; if you discontinue use they will gradually fade. To work, the product needs to be on your face for at least 8 of every 24-hour period, but not necessarily at night. If you prefer to wear it during the day it's perfectly OK. You can use it under your eyes, if you're careful not to get it in your eyes. Otherwise, apply it to your entire face, after washing it or using a non-alcohol toner.
