Founders

The creators of NeoStrata Company Inc., Drs. Eugene Van Scott, Dermatologist, and Ruey Yu, Dermatopharmacologist are internationally recognised for making the groundbreaking discovery that Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) have profound beneficial effect on human skin.

Their vision led to their subsequent research which established AHAs are not only beneficial in the treatment of dermatological conditions, but are also effective in stimulating prematurely aged or damaged skin to actually rejuvenate itself, thereby revolutionising the treatment of ageing skin.

They wrote the chapter in the definitive textbook for the field of cosmetic dermatology, “Alpha Hydroxy Acids, PolyHydroxy Acids, Aldobionic Acids and Their Topical Applications” in the Textbook of Cosmetic Dermatology.

Neostrata continue to advance with scientific innovations, over 100 patents and publishing articles in peer-reviewed medical journals.


What do the products contain?

Neostrata product range

Lactobionic Acid

A potent antioxidant which builds the skin’s support structure and protects it by inhibiting Matrix Metalloproteinases (MMP), the enzyme that breaks down collagen and glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), the skin’s own natural moisturisers. Together with Pro-Vitamins A, C and E, Lactobionic Acid also provides intense moisturisation and reduction in the appearance of fine lines, pore size, laxity and mottled hyperpigmentation.

Alpha Hydroxyl Acids (AHAs)

Along with glycolic and citric acid AHAs help visibly reduce fine lines and wrinkles and restore the skin to a more youthful appearance. AHAs have also been proven to improve the quality of elastin and the density of collagen, and to promote the production of GAGs such as natural hyaluronic acid, which help support the skin, building volume, increasing the appearance of fullness and firmness, and smoothing wrinkles from the inside out.

Hydroquinone

This lightens mottled pigmentation and fades dark spots.

Polyhydroxy Acid (PHAs)

The antioxidant PHAs in the Neostrata products attract and bind moisture to the skin, providing enhanced moisturisation for dry to extremely dry skin, including eczema on the face and body. Antioxidants help prevent environmental and oxidative damage.
