NOTE: It is not often we venture away from food on this blog, but we were fortunate to receive samples of this product and thought you might be interested in what the lady of the house had to say: "I am not big on moisturizes but this one is very light. I like it a lot and would purchase it in the future."

There are thousands of products and procedures on the market today that claim to turn back the hands of time. Traditionally these treatments focus on restoring collagen, but fail to address all of the factors that play into the anti-aging equation and contribute to the appearance of youthful skin.

Relastin, the skincare brand known for shifting the anti-aging focus to include elastin – the other essential protein in skin, has once again set a new standard in skincare. Ultra EmollientTM is the latest addition to the company’s cult favorite and award-winning line of products. This multitasking cream solves the anti-aging equation by addressing each cause of aging skin – elastin breakdown, loss of moisture and decreased collagen. Ultra EmollientTM’s groundbreaking formula combines Relastin’s signature Zinc Firming Complex™, the first ingredient proven to increase functional elastin content, with the vitamins, peptides and extracts necessary for total skin rejuvenation.

The first part of the equation is hydration. Loss of moisture is a very common problem for older skin, and parched skin makes lines and wrinkles more apparent. Ultra EmollientTM is a luxurious cream that comforts and soothes dry skin – leaving it soft, plump, and velvety smooth. In fact, recent clinical testing shows that 91% of users experienced increased moisture in the skin.
Ultra Emollient is enriched with a cocktail of cell penetrating vitamins and peptides to improve skin tone and texture. Vitamin C, a potent antioxidant, works to fight free radical damage, brighten the complexion and encourage collagen production. Vitamin A reduces the appearance of wrinkles and stimulates production of collagen. Peptides further minimize surface wrinkles and improve skin firmness.

Relastin’s patent-pending, functional elastin boosting Zinc Firming Complex™ completes the age defying equation and sets Ultra Emollient apart from the competition. Elastin is an essential protein in skin that gives it firmness, tone and elasticity. As we age the protein fibers created in our youth breakdown and weaken, causing the skin to lose firmness, sag and wrinkle. Relastin Ultra EmollientTM is proven to dramatically improve skin elasticity and firmness by boosting the production of functional elastin fibers. Clinical tests show that roughly 90% of users saw visibly reduced fine lines and wrinkles, while 81% experienced improved epidermal elasticity.

Relastin Ultra EmollientTM is more than just a moisturizer or a skin treatment; it is a complete anti-aging solution. This all-encompassing new product offers hydration, visibly reduced wrinkles, increased elasticity and firmness in as little as 2 weeks.


1. Relastin Ultra Emollient contains Relastin’s patent pending Zinc Firming Complex, which has been clinically proven to help increase the production of functional elastin for firmer skin and diminished fine lines, wrinkles and sagging.

2. Key added anti-aging ingredients include:
· Vitamin C – antioxidant that helps brighten, moisturize and encourage collagen production
· Vitamin A – encourages collagen production, reduces fine lines and wrinkles
· Peptides that reduce surface wrinkles and improve skin firmness

3. The new rich, creamy formula provides extra moisturization, so skin is smoother, firmer, and more hydrated.

4. Real women who used Relastin Ultra Emollient in clinical studies saw visible results in as little as two to four weeks:
• · 87% saw visible reduction in fine lines and wrinkles
• · 91% saw increased moisture in the skin
• · 81% experienced improved elasticity
• · 76% saw visible reduction in puffiness around the eyes
• · 81% felt like it was working

5. Elastin stops being produced in our teens. The result over time is elastosis, in which there is a loss of function in the skin’s elastin. This causes skin to wrinkle and sag.

6. Functional elastin is a long, healthy elastic protein fiber capable of rebounding, like a rubber band. In contrast, elastin fragments are much shorter. Similar to chopped up rubber bands, they are incapable of springing back.

7. Functional elastin promotes firmer and younger skin. Products that increase elastin fragments do not solve the problem of decreased elasticity.

8. A randomized, double-blind, vehicle-controlled clinical study* was conducted to quantitatively measure functional elastin. The study was conducted on skin at baseline and after four weeks of twice-daily Relastin application. A “Snap Test” was used to determine the number of seconds it took for the skin to snap back to baseline after being pulled a specified distance from the skin. The results showed statistically significant improvement of 40 percent, or 2.1 seconds, in skin treated with Relastin compared to a leading copper peptide product.

9. Relastin Ultra Emollient will launch in 2008. The product will retail for $99.00 and be available at

Relastin is the first and only clinically proven product to increase the production of elastin, a natural protein that gives the skin elasticity. Relastin penetrates the skin to work with the cells to promote the formation of elastin, which the body ceases producing at puberty.

Thanks for the info. Another important part of looking younger is the elastin in the skin. That's almost just as important as collagen, even though collagen in much more famous.
