Reviva Labs Skincare Products for Eyes, Lips, and Face

Reviva Labs has introduced many groundbreaking concepts since its inception in 1973…

The first to introduce exfoliation to America…with our European LIGHT SKIN PEEL (We were explaining the importance of exfoliation years before the cosmetics giants introduced their versions)
The first to introduce elastin to America…Both in skin-care salons and health food stores
No animal testing! Before it was even an issue (way back in 1973), we announced the testing of our products in skin-care salons rather than on animals
And here are several more “FIRSTS” that we are proud to have introduced via Health Food Stores and Skin-Care Salons

INTERCELL DAY CREAM & NIGHT GEL (with hyaluronic acid & glycogen)
non-drying approach to acne -unique dark-spot lightening formulas
· collagen fibre masks
· glycolic acid products
· serum for eyelids
· oxygen-via stabilized hydrogen peroxide
· stabilized ascorbic acid & ascorbigen (“C” extract from cabbage for powerful anti-free radical action)
For over 40 Years Reviva Labs has been producing all natural skin-care products that help leave your skin healthier and more youthful-looking.

Reviva Labs products are sold in professional skin care salons and health food stores worldwide, which attests to the effectiveness and safety of our products.

Reviva Labs is one of the most unique skin-care brands in the cosmetic industry. Reviva’s products are not conventional commercial items. Established in 1973 to serve the newly emerging skin-salon market, the Reviva line is comprised of skin treatments created for skin-care professionals’demand for individualized formulas that meet specific needs.

Thus in Reviva’s broad array, each product is formulated for a specific purpose.

During Reviva’s early years, it was known as “The U.N. of skin-care discoveries”. With European affiliations, Reviva’s founder had selected the specialties of 12 different laboratories in 6 different countries, imported them in bulk and repackaged in retail sizes under the Reviva label.

Years later, Reviva Labs’ own chemists – experienced with natural extracts – were able to reproduce the treatments, following Reviva’s exacting standards; adding the latest technological advances.

Reviva Labs, a small company compared to the cosmetic giants, via it’s european affiliations and dermatalogical research, has introduced more skin-care firsts through America’s skin salons and health food stores, than most of the cosmetic giants.

NeoCell: The True Science of Collagen

The therapeutic benefits of collagen have been widely recognized in Europe and Asia for decades. At NeoCell, we are proud to say that we introduced collagen to the Americas.

Neocell was started in 1998 by founder and fearless leader Al Quadri after an extraordinary personal experience. Following a heart attack, Al endured triple- bypass surgery and a recovery that was slow and difficult. His muscles atrophied, and his usual energy disappeared. To recover Al understood that his future health depended on re-engaging his body’s own potential for healing and rejuvenation. It was during his investigation of holistic therapies that he happened upon the unlikely remedy of collagen. Al learned of the integral role collagen plays in strengthening and rebuilding lost muscle mass and connective tissue. Within a few weeks, Al began to rapidly recover and regain his lost vitality.

Once fully recovered, a reinvigorated Al set out to understand the means by which collagen had stimulated his own regenerative systems, thus enabling his rapid recovery. For Al, this wasn’t just a miracle. It was his life’s calling- to make the same health and vitality Al experienced in his recovery accessible to everyone.

His goal was to create products that allowed people to live younger, longer lives with abundant energy and wellbeing. And so Neocell was born, as a family-owned, research oriented business committed to introducing the world to a premium quality collagen-based supplement line.

Since our founding we have been continually enhancing our manufacturing processes so we are able to offer our customers the most bioavailable and bioactive collagen peptides on the market. We are proud to say millions of people have benefitted from our efforts and are now living a more youthful life.

Today, NeoCell is the #1 collagen brand in the world and a leader in the field of nutritional science. While we have grown considerably over the years, one thing has never changed – our commitment to finding the most innovative and effective nutraceutical supplements.

Coffee Drinkers Have Lower Melanoma Risk

An article published on January 20, 2015 in the JNCI: Journal of the National Cancer Institute reveals the finding of Erikka Loftfield, MPH, and her colleagues of an association between increased coffee consumption and a reduced risk of malignant melanoma.

The analysis included 447,357 participants in the National Institutes of Health-AARP prospective study initiated in 1995-1996. Dietary questionnaires completed upon enrollment were evaluated for the intake of regular and decaffeinated coffee. The subjects were followed for a median of 10.5 years, during which 2,904 cases of malignant melanoma were diagnosed.

A trend was observed between increasing coffee intake and a decreasing risk of malignant melanoma over follow-up. Among men and women who consumed four or more cups of coffee per day, there was an adjusted 20% lower risk of developing malignant melanoma in comparison with the risk experienced by those who were non-coffee drinkers. The protective effect of coffee drinking was observed only in association with coffee that was not decaffeinated and was restricted to those with malignant melanoma as opposed to melanoma in situ.

In their discussion of the findings, the authors suggest several mechanisms to explain the protective effect of coffee against malignant melanoma. “Coffee contains numerous bioactive compounds, including polyphenols, diterpenes, trigonelline, and caffeine,” they write. “The predominant chlorogenic acid in coffee, 5-O-caffeoylquinic acid, and to a greater extent its metabolite caffeic acid, have been shown to suppress UVB-induced skin carcinogenesis in mouse epidermal cells by inhibiting cyclooxygenase (COX-2) expression. COX-2, which is overexpressed in response to UVB exposure and in human melanoma cells compared with normal melanocytes, is thought to play a functional role in the development and progression of malignant melanoma.”

“Because of its high disease burden, lifestyle modifications with even modest protective effects may have a meaningful impact on melanoma morbidity,” they conclude.

Looking into anti-aging supplements will not be complete without looking into anti-oxidants.  One major factor that affects human aging is oxidation.  Thus, it is important that we take in a lot of anti-oxidants to combat this process.  But what exactly is oxidation and why do we need anti-aging supplements through anti-oxidants?

Oxidation happens when oxygen is burned and produces what is known as free radicals.  Everything that has contact with oxygen is witness to oxidation.  Thus, we see rusting in metals.  In humans, we age.  That is because free radicals are kept inside the body.  These are molecules that are incomplete because of a missing electron.   In its quest to find its missing electron to become stable, free radicals damage and destroy cells it gets contact into. The involvement of DNA worsens the problem, resulting in cell mutations, which cause cancer tumors.  On healthy cells, free radical damage causes aging.

Considering the level of free radical oxidative damage that accumulates in cells, it is important to include anti-oxidants as anti-aging supplements Without curbing the levels of free radicals in our body, cells cannot grow healthily – they die and do not multiply anymore, causing aging and ultimately death.  Thus, it is important to scout for foods and supplements rich in anti-oxidants as they target the main cause of aging.

Another option for anti-aging supplements would be hormone level increase or hormone replacement.  This is because a lot of people believe that aging is also caused sub-optimal levels of hormones present in the body.  It is said that as people get older, production and presence of some hormones in our body start decreasing.  These hormones include include estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, melatonin, human growth hormone, androstenedione and DHEA.  Moreover, at this period, levels of cortisol (also known as the stress hormone) and insulin tend to increase, causing such ailments as adult-onset diabetes.

Human growth hormone, responsible for the stimulation of tissue growth which propels growth in our internal organs, skin, muscles, nerves, and bones slows down as we get older.  Meanwhile, levels of melatonin which is utilized for sleep, decreases with age, making older people sleep with difficulty.  This causes their bodies to find it hard to repair tissues and function properly because of lack of rest.  Meanwhile, DHEA which is considered the building blocks of testosterone and estrogen, boosts brain and immune system functions.

With these linkages, it cannot be helped that a lot of people opt to have anti-aging supplements that include these hormones, or at least triggers that help increase the production of these hormones.  It is also a practice for some that they undergo hormone replacement therapy aside from anti-aging supplements to combat aging.

We have a good selection of hormone-infused products that will surely satisfy your urge for a younger, healthier body.
