Elizabeth Arden Launches Elizabeth Arden Rx
Elizabeth Arden, Inc., a global prestige beauty products company, introduces new Elizabeth Arden Rx, a comprehensive professional skincare line developed exclusively for physician offices. Elizabeth Arden Rx addresses four key skin conditions-Anti-Aging, Brightening, Clarifying, and Hydration-combining highly effective in-office treatments and at-home products to provide simple solutions for patients with signs of premature skin aging, uneven skin tone and pigmentation, Acne and problem-prone skin and dry dehydrated skin. The at-home products are designed to be used as stand-alone home skincare-as well as enhance, maintain and optimize results between professional treatments-by using proprietary ingredients including several new patent-pending technologies: AHA Retinoid Conjugate, an AHA/Vitamin A derivative combination; Allyl PQQ, a new mitochondrial anti-oxidant; and a novel anti-oxidant complex1 designed specifically to protect essential skin proteins against harmful degradation.
"Elizabeth Arden Rx offers a more complete approach to improving skin health with a comprehensive skincare regimen that provides safe, effective, simple solutions both in and out of the physicians office," said Arthur Pellegrino, Vice President, Research and Development at Elizabeth Arden "These products are the result of years of research into the needs of patients and the development of novel new, clinically proven ingredients. All of this results in a highly effective yet aesthetically elegant skincare line."
The beauty care giant tapped the innovation expertise of US CosmeceuTechs, LLC and its CEO, Joe Lewis to collaborate on Elizabeth Arden Rx. Lewis, first partnered with Elizabeth Arden, Inc. in 2005 to launch Prevage, which has gone on to win more than 160 awards globally. Lewis, a chemist and cosmeceutical skincare researcher, is best known for introducing some of the world's most cutting-edge skincare ingredients including Alpha-Hydroxy Acid in 1983, Idebenone in 2004 and CoffeeBerry in 2007.
"With Elizabeth Arden Rx, we have an opportunity to provide physicians and patients with some of our most advanced skincare technology," said Joe Lewis, CEO of US CosmeceuTechs, LLC. "We believe the combination of these novel technologies offers new simple solutions for patient skin conditions with improved efficacy, reduced irritation and therefore better overall results with improved compliance."
