Glycolic Acid: Buffered or Unbuffered…..What's the difference?

glycolic buffered formulaAs an educated consumer, we know that the higher the number, the stronger the formula, right? Sometimes this is totally wrong. How can that be…..buffered and unbuffered that’s how. It is very common in skin care science to buffer formulas. What does this mean for the consumer? Simply put, you could be buying a 20% strength that is buffered down to an 8% . This practice is used widely to make sure consumers are getting a product that can be used by everyone and limits the manufacturer's liablilty.

Why should you look for unbuffered strength? Most likely when you are purchasing an active product, you are trying to achieve a specific result, be it anti-aging, pigmentation, or blemish control. You are usually looking for a higher strength, for better or faster results. When you are purchasing these buffered solutions, you are not achieving your goal.

Now that you know the difference, make sure that what you are using is as strong as it claims to be. Newport Cosmeceuticals is proud to produce Glycolic Acid Pads that are unbuffered. When you use our 10% pads, you very well may find that you are getting better results than you have ever achieved with even a 20% buffered strength from another brand. What does that mean for our 20% pads? Your results will be even more profound!

Keep your skin hydrated with Quenching Mist NaPCA+Hyaluronic Cocktail!

With the hot, drying summer days here, you'll simply love this finishing spray. Use it liberally after cleansing, or any time during the day for a burst of instant, refreshing hydration.

This is quite a unique product that Newport Cosmeceuticals developed here. While there are plenty of mists out there, this one is the only one incorporating the benefits of both NaPCA and Hyaluronic Acid, both known for their amazing hydration properties, along with essential, proven antioxidants Green Tea, Chamomile and Aloe Vera.

This delicately scented mist is excellent for all skin types: it nourishes, hydrates and restores moisture on the spot, and like most Newport Cosmeceuticals products it is hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic.

If you're curious about NaPCA, here's what it is:
NaPCA stands for Sodium Pyrrolidone Carboxylic Acid (sounds ominous but it's actually a good acid) and is found naturally in the skin and in plants. NaPCA is a non-toxic, colorless and odorless liquid that has been shown to be as mild to the skin as water, but with powerful moisturizing and skin smoothing and firming benefits.

And here is what it does:
NaPCA works by retaining the water already in your skin and by attracting moisture from the atmosphere. Your own body produces NaPCA naturally, but lesser amounts as we age.

Of course we've all read about Hyaluronic Acid in skin care (and in dermal fillers), but just in case you need a reminder...

Hyaluronic Acid, sometimes referred to as HA, occurs naturally in the body. One of its essential characteristics is an amazing ability to retain water (it can hold up to 500% of its own weight in water) which contributes significantly to the skin maintaining a youthful appearance.

As we age the levels of Hyaluronic in our body decrease, our skin loses its ability to retain moisture, and here come those inevitable wrinkles... So we need to do all we can to retain moisture, and replenish our skin with Hyaluronic Acid.

Why Hyaluronic Skin Care works:
Topically, the benefits of HA can be quite significant. Unlike topical collagen treatments, Hyaluronic Acid has the ability to be effectively absorbed by the skin, and does double duty by also being an efficient "carrier" of other anti-aging ingredients to cells. That means that the active anti-aging ingredients are also transported to the cells through the layers of skin.

In addition to our Quenching Mist ($20 for 4oz) we are also offering a special "Advanced Hydration Therapy" 3-product kit that has all you need to keep your skin looking cool, fresh and beautiful all summer long. It includes Quenching Mist, Vitamin C Rehydration Gel, and Total C complex serum. These 3 products together are awesome in what they do, the active ingredients (such as Vitamin C, Hyaluronic) are packed in high concentration, and at $99 all 3 products (about 3 month supply) it's one of the best deals around. Check it out!

New from Newport Cosmeceuticals: Perfecting Toner Glycolic Salicylic 2/3 Complex

Adding a toner to your skincare routine is a great finishing step to cleansing, and also an excellent preparation of the skin to receive additional treatments. In a nutshell, that's what a toner is for.

Normal to oily skin types, as well as acne-prone, will definitely love this Perfecting Toner that eliminates excess oil and restores balance to the skin with a refreshing blend of natural botanicals.

So what's the scoop on this product? Well it has just the right blend of Glycolic Acid (2%) and Salicylic Acid (3%) to make it effective yet keep it gentle. We want your skin toned, not burned...

Salicylic Acid is especially helpful in treating acne because of its ability to penetrate the follicle. It encourages the shedding of dead skin cells from within, keeping the pores clear of cellular debris.

Incorporating Glycolic Acid into this new complex promotes the smoothing of wrinkles, fading of hyperpigmentation and sun damage, and improves the tone and texture of the skin.

What kind of results can you expect? It's ideal for balancing Normal to Oily/Acne Prone Skin. It gently exfoliates, unclogs and tightens pores; minimizes blackheads and whiteheads and controls future breakouts. It's also Hypoallergenic/Non-Comedogenic.

So if you're looking for the perfect toner for your skin, give our Perfecting Toner a try. At $20 for 4oz, it's a steal, and if you don't like it, we'll take it back, as we have a 30-day money back guarantee. Order it today, and don't forget to sign up for your newsletter

Restore your skin to a more youthful state with this potent peptides serum

The term RESTORE is a loaded word that we use to equal results. When Newport Cosmeceuticals set to develop its latest cutting edge formula, they could not think of a better word to describe it.

Restore Wrinkle Repair Concentrate targets the aging process from the outside in. As you can imagine, when you develop a formula for anti-aging that tightens, plumps, minimizes fine lines, and boost collagen and elastin production, it better be potent and power-packed with key ingredients. Keeping its commitment to its customers, Newport Cosmeceuticals developed a highly penetrating formula that produces results!

As you may have heard or even tried in the past, peptides are an amazing component to an anti-aging formula. When combined with Retinol, Alpha Lipoic Acid and Beta Glucan, in a highly stabilized formula, you are getting an anti-aging product that will RESTORE your skin to a more youthful state.

So what do peptides actually do? You may have heard that they are the wrinkle cure. We can tell you that while they are not the cure, they do play an important role in tissue renewal. Palmitoyl Pentapeptide 3 is proven in studies to clinically regenerate the skin’s upper layers by stimulating collagen production and thickening the epidermis, while Acetyl Hexapeptide 3 is shown to reduce wrinkles by disrupting the nerve signals sent to muscles beneath the dermis, relaxing them and smoothing the overlying skin.

Just these two raw materials may sound like the make the perfect anti-aging serum, but then we add Alpha Lipoic to the mix and it makes a cutting edge product even more powerful.

You may have heard of alpha-lipoic acid as "the miracle in a jar" for its anti-aging effects. It’s a newer, ultra-potent antioxidant that helps fight future skin damage and helps repair past damage. Alpha-lipoic acid has been referred to as a "universal antioxidant" because it is soluble in both water and oil, which permits its entrance to all parts of the cell. Due to this quality, it is believed that alpha-lipoic acid can provide the greatest protection against damaging free radicals when compared with other antioxidants. Alpha-lipoic acid diminishes fine lines, gives skin a healthy glow, and boosts levels of other antioxidants, such as Vitamin C.

Newport Cosmeceuticals has always had a commitment to producing results “from the outside in” to “the inside out”. Just the technology of RESTORE Anti_aging Wrinkle Repair Concentrate and the potency of its ingredients will make it your anti-aging serum for life.
