Ingredient Spotlight: Brestine

When we introduced you to our Cyto-luxe Eye Serum this past fall we also introduced you to a new age-fighting ingredient: Brestine. Also known as plankton extract, this marine-derived polymer has the ability to fill in the furrows of the skin and smooth small wrinkles within 15 minutes of application! When tested in vivo, the results of applying Brestine to crow’s feet and wrinkles were powerful and subjects showed lasting benefits for 6 hours after a single application*. We truly believe in the transformative properties of this beneficial ingredient and are excited to add it to our inventory of innovative ingredients. Contact your local glo therapeutics retailer to try Cyto-luxe Eye Serum or shop here.

Product Highlight: Pumpkin Enzyme Scrub

Is it just us or are pumpkins really having a moment? This fall season more than ever it seems like everywhere you turn there is pumpkin flavored something hitting the shelves. But did you know that the antioxidants found in pumpkin help increase skin’s moisture absorption and elasticity? That’s why glo therapeutics’ beloved Pumpkin Enzyme Scrub is a top selling product all year long!

Pumpkin is an exceptionally powerful exfoliant because it’s naturally rich in antioxidant bioflavonoids and Vitamin A which assist in breaking down dead and irregular cellular buildup. As a gentle exfoliant, Pumpkin Enzyme Scrub helps removes dead skin cell buildup while stimulating cell regeneration to help your skin feel rejuvenated and smooth. Unlike other scrubs, Pumpkin Enzyme Scrub  is packed with small granules and enzymes that don’t stress or irritate the skin and  the scent is absolutely delightful!

“This is hands down the best exfoliator I've used. It works magic without harming your skin.The smell is also wonderful, just like a pumpkin pie!” - Sara, online review
