Metacell Renewal B3 utilizes a patent-pending aqueous emulsion to deliver a high concentration of 5% niacinamide (vitamin B3) combined with a firming tripeptide concentrate, and 15% pure glycerin to address early signs of photoaging. While signs of photoaging appear at different intensities according to skin biology, lifestyle, geography, sun protection behavior, and skincare regimen, they have a multiplicative effect, creating a prematurely-aged appearance. This comprehensive daily emulsion visibly improves these early signs of photoaing by increasing cell turnover to resurface skin, help reclarify and even skin tone, and improve the appearance of wrinkles and surface elasticity.
Protocol: A dermatologist-controlled 12-week clinical on 56 female subjects, ages 40-55. Subjects applied Metacell Renewal B3 twice daily. Subjects also used SkinCeuticals Gentle Cleanser and Physical UV Defense SPF 30 as needed.
