Peter Thomas Roth's latest product offering is Neuroliquid Youth Serum. At almost $70 an ounce it would qualify for the Ageless Beauty Top Ten Skin Care Product List (10 best regardless of price).
Right now it's exclusively available on the Peter Thomas Roth website and QVC (at the advance order price which works out to a tad less than $63 an ounce).
If you like what you read here or are able to catch a QVC video about the product, you might want to buy it now to save a few bucks. Mr. Roth is scheduled to be on air quite frequently over the next couple of weeks at QVC, but it's not clear whether he will talk about this product in particular. Oh, the suspense ...
The product is described as containing the "breakthrough 96% VoluFill™ complex with 19 amino acids at 76%" plus 5 disclosed peptides, three collagens (soluble collagen, presumably two that would be stimulated by SYN-Coll and Palmitoyl Dipeptide-5, or perhaps contained in the VoluFill complex), and the powerful skin identical moisturizing ingredient, Hyaluronic Acid (in its salt form, Sodium Hyaluronate).
The peptides found in the ingredient list are:
1. Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5 (SYN-Coll for synthetic collagen - stimulates collagen growth),
2. Palmitoyl Dipeptide-5 Diaminobutyroyl Hydroxythreonine (stimulates collagen growth),
3. Acetyl Tetrapeptide-9 (stimulate synthesis of proteoglycans - which decrease with age), and
4. Hexapeptide-2 (a new one to me).
The fifth peptide must be part of the VoluFill complex.
Sixteen of the 19 amino acids promised are found in the ingredient list but it's impossible to interpret their effect on skin without knowing the peptide sequence(s) in which they are combined.
Of 34 participants in a four week Consumer Efficacy Study:
• 100% said their skin felt more supple;
• 88% said their skin appeared to have more fullness;
• 88% said they saw a reduction in the appearance of deep wrinkles;
• 88% said they saw fewer fine lines and wrinkles;
• 82% said their skin appeared less hollow;
• 82% said their skin appeared to be more youthful looking; and
• 85% said their skin appeared more luminous.
The clinical results from the same population group demonstrated:
• Potential to improve the appearance of deep wrinkles and skin texture.
• Persistent smoothing effect on the look of wrinkles and fine lines in the crow's feet area.
We don't normally review new products before more information is available; but then, Peter Thomas Roth's is not a normal skincare line. It's one of our longtime favorites.
Leap of faith time?
