Super Multi Corrective Cream from Kiehl’s - PR Info

Hello Dearies,
Kiehl’soffers a hard-working solution to correct multiple key signs of aging in Just 2 weeks and double efficacy within 4 weeks...
New York, NY – Aging is an inevitable part of life. With that universal fact, most people don‘t simply address a single age factor—they look to address everything that is causing them to look older such as:
 exercise for a youthful figure
 hair color to mask grey hair
 healthy diet to prevent age related disease
 anti-aging products for younger looking skin

Kiehl‘s chemists took this same ‗complete‘ approach in their battle against the signs of aging skin. Instead of focusing on the individual concerns related to aging skin, Kiehl‘s took a multi-functional approach by targeting multiple key signs of aging. With Kiehl‘s cutting edge formula and proprietary tri-active technology, Kiehl’s Super Multi-Corrective Cream is clinically demonstrated tosimultaneously lift, firm, visibly redefine skin contours and re-texturize skin within 2 weekswith double efficacy shown within 4 weeks. For visibly younger looking skin, multiple signs of aging need to be addressed simultaneously.

1Attributes of ―signs of aging‖ are skin lift, firmness, contour, texture, facial wrinkles, neck sagginess, neck smoothness/softness, neck skin texture, neck folds, elasticity/ resiliency, skin density, pores size, radiance, skin quality/youthful appearance. She continues, “To ensure both efficacious and swift correction, we needed to address aging skin with ingredients that when combined in the formula, areeach individually demonstrated to tackle particular signs of aging.”

Did you know that younger skin and aged skin behave quite differently? When damaged, young skin takes only 6 hours to recover and repair itself. Alternatively, aged skin takes over 30 hours. As we age, our cells also age and become less resilient to internal and environmental aggressors. The result is loss of elasticity, wrinkles and rough texture. “As aging skin repairs itself more slowly than younger skin, Kiehl‟s chemists opted to address multiple signs of aging simultaneously in order to provide the most efficient results,” shares Cammie Cannella, Vice President of Education.

Kiehl’s tri-active technology: Three potent anti-age powerhouse ingredients for a hardworking formula
Nearly 17 months ago, Kiehl‘s chemists began development to determine which key ingredients,that when
combined in one formula, would ―work hard‖ and swiftly to visibly correct multiple key signs of aging: skin
contours, firmness, texture, elasticity and wrinkles. Kiehl‘s chemists focused on three ingredients that until now have never been combined in a cream: Jasmonic Acid: A highly effective yet very mild, active known for its ability to support epidermal renewal and help to visibly correct wrinkles, fine lines, loss of suppleness and elasticity, while gently smoothing and retexturizing the skin‘s surface.
Did you know?In nature, when plants are attacked, damaged or under stress, they produce a lipid based
signal molecule, Jasmonic Acid, that triggers and regulates a plant responses to these external stressors.
It has an important role in the plant‘s self-repair response and resistance to wounding. Beech Tree Extract: Known for its ability to improve skin firmness and visibly improve plumpness and density. Beech Tree Extract is axylose based molecule, a sugar found abundantly in beech trees and known to stimulate
the production of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs)2 Fragmented Hyaluronic Acid: Known to reinforce skin‘s natural short and long term moisturization.

Additionally, it is known to improve skin elasticity while reducing skin roughness and reducing the appearance of wrinkles. “When looking to develop an advanced anti-aging cream, we had to identify which ideal ingredients, that when combined, could swiftly and effectively improve multiple concerns on visible signs of aging skin. The result of this research was Kiehl‟s Tri-active Technology of Jasmonic Acid, Beech Tree Extract and Hyaluronic Acid,” shares Dr. Geoff Genesky, Head of Kiehl’s Skin Care Laboratory, Research and Innovation Manager.

“Each ingredient is known for its distinct functionality and in vitro results on the specific layers of 2 Epidermal ground substance(the non-cellular components of extracellular matrix)which binds water, increasing epidermal hydration and thickness. For visible correction many factors facing aging skin must be addressed simultaneously.the skin. In combination, within our proprietary recipe, we‟ve formulated a unique and precise solution resulting in more youthful looking skin in just 2 weeks.”

“Super Cream” - An Industry Achievement In an industry achievement, Kiehl‘s chemists have successfully formulated a ―Super Cream‖ using three antiaging ingredients that have never before been formulated together in a cream base. Kiehl‘s chemists were determined to formulate this multi-tasking innovation in a cream formula for two reasons:
 To ensure the delivery system of the three anti-aging ingredients could additionally offer nourishing, antiaging hydration benefits - a key factor in improving skin barrier and skin texture.
 To act as a ―harder working, multi-tasking‖ anti-aging solution, one that easily fits into a busy woman‘s daily routine.

This achievement took 39 trials and 17 months to overcome due to the following key challenges:

Challenge #1: Incorporate Jasmonic Acid into a cream base without destabilizing the emulsion Jasmonic Acid is at the core of Kiehl‘s tri-active technology. The salt form of the Jasmonic Acid was chosen due to its proven efficacy offering gentle retexturizing benefits to the skin, without irritation. Until now, this salt version of Jasmonic Acid has typically been used in serums as the ingredient is easier to stabalize in a serum base. In a cream base, building viscosity3 is challenging due to high concentration of electrolytes in this form of Jasmonic Acid. The concentration of electrolytes can easily disrupt most emulsifiers in an oil-in-water emulsion resulting in the combination separating. This challenge was overcome by Kiehl‘s chemists selecting and fine tuning the level of specific, robust emulsifiers to ensure the integrity of the formulation. This technical achievement enabled our customers to have an anti-aging cream that offers the known efficacy of a serum.

Challenge #2: Ensuring an elegant texture of the product on the skin. Stabalizing the formula is not the only challenge with utilizingthe highly effective ingredientJasmonic Acid. This ingredient adds an additional complexity. During formulation, it can disrupt the formula‘s texture, making it less spreadable. Kiehl‘s chemists needed to deliver a stable and effective formula that also provided a soft, aesthetic touch. To achieve this, they formulated with the nourishing emollient Shea Butter to provide a hydrated, silky texture on the skin.

Challenge #3: Incorporate Beech Tree Extract at a potent level + hydration without ―stickiness‖.
Known for its ability to improve skin firmness and visibly improve plumpness and density, Beech Tree Extract had strong potential when Kiehl‘s chemists sought to develop a multi-tasking anti-aging powerhouse. They were challenged because this ingredient is known to encourage a sticky texture in a formula. Coupled with important hydration ingredients for the cream base, Kiehl‘s chemists were facing an extremely ―stickier‖ texture than they normally are able to overcome. As not all emollients are created equal4
, Kiehl‘s chemists had to carefully select ideal emollients to balance this ―uber sticky‖ formula. Super Multi-Corrective Cream‘s specialblend of emollients were chosen for their ability to impart a light, dryer feel with others selected for their ability to impart a richer feel. Super efficacy, clinically proven5 results within 2 weeks. 3Measure of the ―thickness‖ of a fluid. For example honey has a higher viscosity than water.

  1. It sounds really good but does it work is the question? I know their products are highly rated, xoxo.

    1. Yeah me too have the same doubt Inez :p Hope it will work :)
