Q: When was AminoGenesis first created and used?

A: The basic formula in AG (AminoGenesis) was created over 10 years ago by a world-class team of scientists and doctors.

Q: What were its initial intended purposes?
A: It was created to be the most powerful moisturizing/ nourishing agent ever. However, due to its amazing ability to help problem skin it has had extensive
use in the health care industry.

Q: What makes AG so much different than any other skin care products?
A: First of all, itís important to understand how a typical moisturizer works. Generally, all so called moisturizers work by simply covering the skin with a thin film of something IE: oils waxes or petroleum products in an attempt to hold in moisture. Hence they really do not moisturize the skin at all, but simply attempt to prevent moisture loss.

AminoGenesis is vastly different for three main reasons. First our water-based delivery system is capable of very quick and deep penetration. Next, AG is totally based on amino acid technology. Amino acids are the very building blocks of all living things on Earth. Amino acids are essential for healthy vibrant skin. Lastly, the hospital approved defense system allows the highest level of germ free delivery of any product available.

Q: Although AminoGenesis works on problem skin will it help my normal skin look more youthful?
A: While itís true AminoGenesis has shown miraculous results in helping skin problems and injuries, it was originally designed to be the most effective cosmetic product ever created. If you have relatively healthy skin, AminoGenesis can improve your skin and keep it that way for many years to come!

Q: Is AminoGenesis suitable for all skin types?
A: Whether your skin is dry, oily or a combination of both, this formula works wonders on all skin types.

Q: How long will it take before I will see results using AminoGenesis?
A: Sometimes impressive results occur within the first few days of use. However, keep in mind that AminoGenesis works by helping the skin rejuvenate itself at the cellular level. These new skin cells may take weeks to appear on the surface of the skin. While fast results are common, the most impressive and lasting changes occur over time with continued use.

Q: What makes the AG delivery system so special?
A: In order for any delivery system to be effective, it has to be able to penetrate the skin. Most skin care products do nothing more than ride on the surface. The highly developed delivery system in AG allows for quick, almost instant penetration.

Q: How does it penetrate?
A: Firstly, AG has a controlled viscosity, which becomes less and less viscous as shear force is applied. Secondly, the electro static properties are correct and compatible with the skinís natural electro static charge. Thirdly, AG temporarily reduces skin surface tension to allow penetration. Lastly, the molecules in the entire p
roduct are small enough in size and weight to allow penetration.

Q: Why is it important that the product penetrate the skin at all?
A: This is how moisture and nutrients crucial to proper skin health are delivered under the stratum corneum (the protective barrier of the skin) for use in daily maintenance and renewal.

Q: What about products that already have collagen in them?
A: Many products do have collagen in them. Collagen is a very complex protein too large to penetrate the skin and be of any real use. Many collagen products are from bovine (cattle) sources. We do not recommend them!

Q: What are some of the functions amino acids perform?
A: The functions that amino acids are involved with are too many to list. Itís simply easier to say there is nothing that takes place in your body that does not involve them! Thatís why they are so important.

Q: Where do the amino acids come from?
A: We derive the amino acids in our products from plant sources because it gives us a pure version of the desired amino acid. Therefore there are no animal products used to acquire our amino acids nor has there ever been any animal testing to perfect our products.

Q: Are amino acids similar to alpha hydroxy or glycolic acids?
A: No, not at all! Amino acids are the basic compounds for every component, of every plant or animal on Earth. Amino acids are the organic miracles that enable life to exist. Alpha hydroxy and glycolic acids are derived from fruits, and are designed to dissolve the chemical bonds on your skin. They are a harsh and damaging way to accomplish exfoliation. They also make the skin sensitive to the sun. Its an outdated and dangerous way to treat the delicate surface layers of your skin!

Q: What are the cosmetic/appearance benefits I can expect by using AG?
A: It has been medically proven that the loss of important proteins manufactured in the skin contributes to the aging process. By nourishing the skin with the necessary amino acid building blocks, the skin can do a much better job of its own maintenance. Hence, everything from wrinkles and discoloration to more severe problems like dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis, rosacea etc. can dramatically improve in appearance.

Q: Is there sunscreen in AminoGenesis Products?
A: No. Sunscreen is an important part of taking care of your skin. However, AminoGenesis products are designed to hydrate and nourish your skin. Therefore, you may apply the sunscreen of your choice over AminoGenesis products as needed.
