Comments: Nerium International’s anti-aging message isn’t getting old with consumers. The company’s sales rose more than 25% last year…that’s after doubling in 2014, according to company executives.
The company’s facial skin care products contain NAE-8, an extract based on nerium oleander and aloe vera plants that is said to be a powerful antioxidant and boosts the cell renewal process. Another uniquely-Nerium ingredient is EHT, a mixture of bioactive molecules isolated from coffee, which is said to promote better cognitive function and memory.
Finally, new SIG-1191 acts as a powerful antioxidant and skin hydrator. The patent-pending molecule was developed by Princeton University biochemist Dr. Jeffry Stock and the team at Signum Biosciences. It is the key ingredient in Nerium’s new Age-Defying Eye Serum.
SIG-1191 was developed specifically to target the signs of aging around the eyes, as well as its underlying causes. According to Nerium, the new formula delivers immediate reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles; supports the skin’s natural structure; fights the appearance of dark circles, puffiness and lines and wrinkles; matches the skin’s natural pH level, ensuring optimal skin health; and firms and brightens the appearance of the eye area.
