Blistex launches Deep Renewal anti-aging treatment for lips
OAK BROOK, Ill. Blistex on Tuesday announced the introduction of Deep Renewal, a clinically-proven anti-aging product that reduces deep and fine lines on lips. The product is currently available nationwide with a suggested retail price of $2.79.
Blistex Deep Renewal contains some of the advanced ingredients and protectants found in many specialty and high-end anti-aging products, the company stated, at a less expensive pricepoint.
In the course of a full, independent, clinical trial, clinicians and test participants confirmed Blistex Deep Renewal delivered significant visual improvement in lip features such as luster, suppleness and radiance within two hours after an initial application. Over the course of four weeks, visual reports and lip molds confirmed a reduction in the number and depth of lines and wrinkles.
“Blistex Deep Renewal actually erases some of the tell-tale signs of aging without requiring an invasive procedure,” Charles Zugerman, associate professor of dermatology at Northwestern University Medical School, said. “With regular application of Blistex Deep Renewal, lips have a more youthful appearance.”
Blistex Deep Renewal’s list of ingredients include:
• Hyaluronic spheres—a relatively new technology that helps improve skin condition and gives lips a fuller appearance;
• Coenzyme Q-10, a moisturizer; and
• Light refractors, which contribute to improving lips’ luster and youthfulness by defusing light.
