This highly advanced cream technology actively combines and micro-targets the greatest number and variety of proven anti-aging ingredients in a single cream. 37 Extreme Actives®, winner of the AOL Luxist Reader’s Choice Award for Best Skin Cream Line 2010, is the culmination of the highest level of scientific research and clinical testing, shown to deliver cosmetic anti-aging results comprehensively targeting all categories of skin aging, including but not limited to helping reduce the appearance of wrinkles, redness, and brown spots.
"Dr, Macrene's 37 Extreme Actives contains key ingredients that correct and repair many common skin problems", says Hazel Wyatt, Vice President Divisional Merchandise Manager Beauty and Fragrance, "This is a great product to use alone or with your favorite moisturizer or serum."
37 Extreme Actives® includes proven damage reversal, DNA restore, moisturizing and antioxidant ingredients like, among other things, resveratrol, ferulic acid, organic tea, coffee and mushroom polyphenols, T4 Unirepair, soy and the full complement of amino acids. A top-tier independent testing laboratory assessed 37 Extreme Actives® in clinical trials using objective tools designed to quantitatively measure cosmetic changes in the multiple categories of skin aging. The results demonstrated highly significant decreases in the appearance of redness, brown spots and wrinkles. “The changes observed are considered to represent a dramatic improvement from baseline…in the appearance of crows’ feet, fine lines/wrinkles, red skin blotches and brown skin blotches” (Essex Testing Laboratories). No instances of skin irritation were noted in the clinical trials, demonstrating outstanding safety.
“37 Extreme Actives® provides a safe and highly effective one-step skincare solution™ for all categories of skin aging. Representing the culmination of research from around the globe and harnessing the very best actives in a rational manner, 37 Actives® does the thinking for you,” commented Dr. Macrene. “I am proud and privileged to be partnering with Neiman Marcus to reach people across the country with this product.”
