Anyone who knows me, knows I am always on the lookout to find the perfect skincare product that will moisturize and reduce breakouts. I found a new line that sounds quite promising. I've tried a few of the products and have seen a little success. The skin naturally uses antioxidants to protect itself from the damaging effects of sunlight. Virtually ALL plants and animals protect themselves from the sun using vitamin C. Dr. Mostafa Omar, creator of PHYTO-C Skincare and the pioneer of stabilized liquid Vitamin C (L-Ascorbic Acid) has packed a one-two punch with his most innovative products to date.
PHYTO-C Skincare is one of the most advanced and effective skincare lines formulated to heal and treat the skin with natural plants and herbs and improve skin health and appearance. Using powerful antioxidants, Vitamin C, Vitamin A, Vitamin E and the patented Olive Leaf Extract, Dr. Omar developed Pro-Heal Serum and Velvet Gel. When working synergistically, this product combination has proved to be superior in protecting the skin against sun damage in contrast to using Vitamin C or Vitamin E alone.
Pro-Heal Serum (Formulation of Vitamin C,E,A and Olive Leaf Extract) is suitable for all skin types and provides extraordinary antioxidant protection against UV damage by increasing the overall cellular integrity. It facilitates collagen production while diminishing fine lines and wrinkles. Pro-Heal Serum promotes skin elasticity, lightens and brightens skin while decreasing pigmentation. It also helps to prevent and control acne and heal rosacea. The Olive Leaf Extract in combination with topical Vitamin C, Vitamin A and Vitamin E has shown to provide extraordinary sun protection and anti-inflammatory effects on the skin. Pro-Heal Serum contains Stabilized Olive Leaf Extract, L-Ascorbic Acid (Liquid Vitamin C), Vitamin E, and Kojic Acid. Price: $70, 15ml / $130, 30ml.
Velvet Gel (with Vitamin B3, B5< B12 and Pentapeptide) is applied AFTER Pro-Heal Serum. Velvet Gel is suitable for all skin types and works to improve the combination of rebounding cells and collagens and provides extraordinary nutrition for skin cell repair. It increases blood circulation, regulates skin separation, nourishes, hydrates and softens skin while reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Additionally, Velvet Gel contains Hyaluronic Acid, which in combination with L-Ascorbic Acid activates enzymes that stabilize and maintain collagen structure. L-Ascorbic Acid is the only antioxidant that has been proven to increase collagen production which improves tissue strength and the skin’s appearance. Velvet Gel’s active ingredients include: Pentapeptide, Vitamin B3 (Niacin), Vitamin B5, Vitamin B12, Vitamin E, Coenzyme Q10 and Hyaluronic Acid. Price: $64, 15ml / $125, 30ml.
A clinical study conducted by Dr. Omar and his colleagues concluded that these products can provide useful supplementation to sunscreen protection and may protect against skin cancer and sun damage. Dr. Mostafa M. Omar is the Professor of Pharmacognosy at the University of Rhode Island, School of Pharmacy. He has built a strong reputation as a leading specialist in medic natural product chemistry worldwide and he is the creator of the world’s only stabilized liquid creatine, as well as the superior authority on topical Vitamin C.
