Neostrata South Africa
Neostrata have been a leader in the cosmetic industry for over 25 years and have been recommended and highly regarded by skin care experts around the world.
What makes Neostrata different to other skincare companies?
Neostrata was established in 1988 by Dr E J Van Scott dermatologist and Dr R J Yu dermatopharmacologist; to originally treat Ichthyosis. They were the first company to use a combination of compounds that they later called AHA’s. The use of AHA’s were found to benefit dermatological conditions, encouraging cell turnover and to stimulate older damaged skin to rejuvenate itself.
Neostrata researches and develops clinically proven medically grade cosmeceutical skincare and are motivated by measured, accurate and effective results.
What skin conditions & concerns can Neostrata help/treat?
Neostrata technology treats and targets all layers of the skin; helping to do the following:
- Exfoliate, smooth, increase luminosity and help keep pores clear in the upper layers of the skin (Stratum Corneum).
- Increase cell turnover, evening out of pigment, enhance clarity, improves cell health and healthier cell production in the lower layers of the skin (Epidermis).
- Increases collagen, GAGs production, elasticity, dermal thickness and communication between epidermis and dermis cells in the skin; all of which in turn strengthens and plumps the skin.
