AminoGenesis Wrinkle Arrest giveaway
AminoGenesis, known best for their advanced amino acid skincare products, is introducing their newest creation, Wrinkle Arrest, which has earned the AAD SEAL OF RECOGNITION? from the American Academy of Dermatology for its sun-protection benefit.
Wrinkle Arrest is a new moisturizing day cream with SPF 18 and broad spectrum sun protection. Wrinkle Arrest contains the groundbreaking AminoGenesis DermaScyne formula which helps reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, discoloration and other signs of aging. These precursors help support proteins like collagen and elastin as well as many other key proteins found in the skin. Price: $59
According to AminoGenesis founder Ron Cummings, ?We applaud the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) and its commitment to leading the charge to reduce the incidence of and mortality from skin cancer. Protecting the skin from the ultraviolet A (UVA) and ultraviolet B (UVB) rays of the sun not only helps reduce your risk of skin cancer, but also helps prevent premature aging, including wrinkles.?
Ron notes that the consumer has no real way of knowing how effective various sunscreen products are at protecting the skin. The SPF (sun protection factor) of a product only refers to the UVB spectrum of ultraviolet light. UVA also damages the skin. At this time, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) do not have specific guidance for the industry regarding the UVA protection of sunscreens. For this reason, the claim of broad-spectrum protection (meaning protection against both UVA and UVB rays) actually may be very misleading to the consumer.
About the AAD REAL OF RECOGNITION
In a further effort to emphasize the importance of proper sun protection and to help reduce the incidence of skin cancer, the American Academy of Dermatology introduced the AAD SEAL OF RECOGNITION. The AAD SEAL OF RECOGNITION is designed to help consumers choose products that will provide the sun protection recommended by dermatologists, including broad-spectrum sunscreens with a Sun Protection Factor (SPF) of 15 or higher.
For a product to receive the AAD SEAL OF RECOGNITION, it must meet the following criteria:
* Sun Protection Factor (SPF) of 15 or higher
* Evidence of broad-spectrum protection (protects against UVA and UVB rays) as evidenced by the critical wavelength method and in vivo testing using the Persistent Pigment Darkening method
* Evidence of product stability
* Absence of photo toxicity
* Complies with United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Sunscreen Monograph
Before granting the use of the AAD SEAL OF RECOGNITION to a product, the Academy?s Melanoma/Skin Cancer Committee of dermatologists reviews each application and the corresponding documentation to ensure the product meets the program criteria. Products applying for the AAD SEAL OF RECOGNITION must submit extensive formulation and scientific testing data. Once approved, the product will display the following statement: ?The American Academy of Dermatology recognizes this product for its sun-protection benefit.?
