Acyl-Glutathione Eye Lid Serum is a paraben-free product!


What is Glutathione and why does it matter?

Dr. Perricone has described Glutathione as “the master anti-oxidant”. A simple molecule produced naturally in the body, Glutathione contains different sulfur chemical groups that acts like fly paper, attracting and collecting free radicals and toxins like mercury & heavy metals and carrying them out of the body.

Like many other self-healing elements our bodies create, Glutathione production diminishes with poor diet, exposure to environmental pollution, and of course, with aging.

Since the skin around the eyes is one of the first areas of the body to show fatigue, dehydration, toxin exposure and age, Dr. Perricone has developed Acyl-Glutathione Eye Lid Serum to restore Glutathione to these sensitive areas and speed the elimination of toxic molecules that cause visible signs of aging and deliver results like this:

“What a powerhouse cream, have been using about 3 months and I am so pleased with the results. My deep 11 lines between my eyes are diminished and also the nose to mouth lines have greatly improved.”

“The lines have been reduced to almost nothing. I love the way the product goes on and how it dries, plus the positive effect on my skin.”

Started using this product 4 days ago and have noticed visible signs, skin tighter, wrinkles less visible. I’m 55 years of age, came into work yesterday and colleagues were wondering if I had a face lift on the weekend!”

What are neuropeptides and how do they work?

Neuropeptides are small molecules that send signals from neurons to other cells located across the synapses, or junctions, between the cells. Essentially, they are tiny messengers for the cells in your body.

Neuropeptides are responsible for a number of physical and emotional processes in the body, but when it comes to anti-aging treatments, these messengers serve as an activation point for cellular function in skin.

Dr. Perricone’s unique neuropeptide formulations, including Deep Wrinkle Serum, stimulate cellular function at these activation points and deliver their incredible results by boosting natural production of collagen & elastin in the skin and enhancing the body’s natural circulation, which results in radiant, younger looking skin and ecstatic consumer reviews like this:

“This product has exceeded my expectations–wow!! It’s definitely helped reduce the appearance of my laugh lines…oh and my forehead lines are gone!!”

“This serum is amazing! What I have noticed is the wrinkles are not as noticeable and this product actually works better than the Botox shot!”

“This product is the best thing I have ever tried.”
