0.34 fl oz./10mL $70.00

This is a mini version of the best-selling Regenerative Serum that deviates from the traditional anti-aging skincare products. This product has human stem cell growth factors. It targets the signs of aging: fine lines, wrinkles, photo aging, tightness, thickening of the skin, uneven skin texture and more. A potent regenerative serum combines human stem cell derived growth factors with copper peptides to help restore skin. The "FACTORFIVE Glow": their serum is known for giving a more hydrated and youthful appearance. Provides visible results in as little as 4 weeks. Formulated with humanity in mind, without parabens, mineral oil, sulfates, phthalates, urea, DEA, TEA and has not been tested on animals. 

The scientists behind FACTORFIVE have developed a powerful regenerative serum that nourishes the skin and helps to promote healthy cellular activity. Composed of concentrated human stem cell growth factors as well as copper peptides, the effective formula deviates from traditional methods of ant-aging skincare by targeting these 5 signs of aging: wrinkles, sun spots, tightness, thickness, texture and other signs of aging. These growth factors are either bio-engineered in a laboratory or culled from human stem cells. What these growth factors do is help to build collagen in the skin, which actually erases photo damage, wrinkling, uneven skin texture, dryness and thickening. Copper peptides help to do the same thing, they are just not as effective as the growth factors, which are seen as some of the best anti-aging tools on the market. Found in abundance throughout the body, growth factors are large proteins that float between cells communicating messages relevant to growth, healing and survival. They are made by all types of cells. In the skin this includes the keratinocytes and the fibroblasts (those in the stratum corneum and the deeper dermis). Fibroblasts are collagen factories. Growth factors are like keys that activate cells to do things: grow, divide and make more collagen and elastin. As we age (usually by our 20's) that mechanism has worn out and needs to be rejuvenated. Our body starts to produce skin that is less supple and thinner.

Directions: apply a pea sized amount on clean dry skin in the AM and PM. Use under FACTORFIVE Anti-Aging Cream and follow with a sunscreen in the AM. 

I was only able to use a mini version of this serum, which had enough product for about 2 weeks worth of use. I did pay attention to the ingredients list, and the first ingredient was the human stem cell growth factor. This means you are getting a significant amount of ingredient in this product. Remember, ingredient percentage matters. The next ingredient that would be significant is glycerin, which would help to hydrate the skin, relieving tightness and plumping up the skin. Then niacinamide, helping to reduce hyperpigmentation. Bis (tripeptide-1) copper acetate has been confirmed in studies to have significant anti-wrinkle effects. Acetyl octapeptide-3 is an anti-aging peptide that which is more stable than botulinum toxin and effectively relieves facial wrinkles. Acmella oleracea extract has been shown to reduce the intensity of muscle contractions which leads to a relaxation of expression lines. Therefore, it is the perfect ingredient for facial skin care products, especially for smoothening crow´s feet and wrinkles on the forehead or around the mouth. Camellia sinensis extract is also known as green tea and is an antioxidant. It has significant effects on free radicals and helps in cell-functioning. Palmitoyl tripeptide-37 is a peptide that has been shown to reduce wrinkles in as much as 88% in 28 days. Sodium hyaluronate is a humectant that is a derivative of hyaluronic acid and works to draw moisture into the skin. The molecule holds 1,000 its own weight in water. 

What about the anti-aging claims? I do think that this product would significantly work to reduce wrinkles in as little as 4 weeks, as the claims make, considering the ingredients. I noticed my skin skin felt smoother when using it and that my skin's hyperpigmentation lightened up. I have some very small lines above eyes that started to disappear when I used this. All of the reviews on the website are 5 stars except for one (she had yet to receive her order). Nineteen glowing reviews. 

FACTORFIVE Regenerative Serum Mini retails for $70.00 and the original size retails for $199.00 

Until Next Time~
