The skin surface perfector for a visibly enhanced skin in 8 weeks

Smooth skin is a sought-after aspect of a youthful and beautiful appearance. Many consumers undergo aggressive medical resurfacing procedures to remove visible lines and pores, but they may destabilize the structure of the epidermis and its integrity. LOX-AGE™ accomplishes similar new cell growth by gentle, natural means, stimulating the key protein lysyl oxidase (LOX). The all-natural, plant-based active noticeably improves skin smoothness and youthfulness. It adds a highly appealing verifiable claim to various anti-aging products thanks to a clinical efficacy similar to Retinol.
