PROVO, Utah, Jan 15, 2010 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Nu Skin Enterprises, Inc. (NUS) today announced the start of an international tour to roll out its ageLOC anti-aging product portfolio, including a new ageLOC edition of its top-selling Galvanic Spa System II. The ageLOC product tour will include stops in more than 20 cities throughout the Americas, Europe and the South Pacific. Nu Skin has also begun rolling out the ageLOC products in Japan, South Korea, China, Hong Kong and Taiwan and will continue its international launch through the summer.
"We continue to fuel enthusiasm for our ageLOC anti-aging products and expect that the addition of the Nu Skin ageLOC Edition Galvanic Spa System II, which we have not previously announced, will generate even greater interest in both our product offering and business opportunity," said Truman Hunt, Nu Skin's president and chief executive officer. "The new ageLOC Galvanic Spa showcases Nu Skin's powerful point of differentiation, integrating the advanced delivery system of galvanic technology with our proprietary ageLOC daily skin care system, to more effectively target the sources of aging by resetting youth gene clusters to a more youthful expression pattern."
"A recent clinical trial revealed that the ageLOC Edition Galvanic Spa boosts the visible benefits of ageLOC Future Serum by an average of 80 percent across multiple signs of aging after just one week," said Joseph Chang, Ph.D., Nu Skin chief scientific officer. "These dramatic results are even more impressive considering that ageLOC Future Serum is clinically shown to begin improving multiple signs of aging on its own in only seven days."
The study was conducted with twice daily application of ageLOC Future Serum - the key product of the ageLOC Transformation skin care system - and three galvanic facials with the ageLOC Edition Galvanic Spa throughout the week.
ageLOC Skin Care Suite
NEW ageLOC Edition Galvanic Spa System II
The Nu Skin ageLOC Edition Galvanic Spa System II improves delivery of ageLOC ingredients to the skin through a redesigned conducting head and optimized treatment settings. These changes allow up to five times more ageLOC to be delivered to the skin versus with the previous Galvanic Spa. The updated shape of the face conductor better follows the contours of the face, has a larger surface area and a grooved surface that constantly moves fresh product between the skin and conductor--the critical location to enhance the delivery benefits of the ageLOC Galvanic Spa. In addition, a brighter display, intuitive usability and enhanced ergonomics improve ease of use and the overall product experience.
The ageLOC Galvanic Spa from Nu Skin is a patented handheld instrument that uses self-adjusting galvanic currents to deliver key ingredients to the skin for a deep clean and a revived and rejuvenated appearance, while smoothing and toning the skin.
ageLOC Galvanic Spa Facial Gels
The ageLOC face conductor is paired with ageLOC Galvanic Spa Facial Gels for visible improvement in signs of aging in as little as five minutes a few times per week. The negatively charged Pre-Treat Gel binds to impurities, softens and relaxes pores allowing them to breathe and dissolves excess facial oils. The positively charged Treatment Gel with ageLOC draws out impurities targeted in the pre-treat step and targets the ultimate sources of aging to help preserve the look of youth and reduce the overall appearance of aging.
ageLOC Future Serum
ageLOC Future Serum is the star product in the ageLOC Transformation daily skin care system. This powerful, clinically tested formula combines the benefits of many different anti-aging ingredients to reveal younger looking skin in eight key ways, beginning in only seven days:
Promotes youthful skin structure
Smoothes skin texture
Evens skin tone
Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
Increases skin radiance
Reduces the appearance of pores
In addition to ageLOC Future Serum, ageLOC Transformation includes the following ageLOC products for daily skin care:
Gentle Cleanse & Tone is a foaming cleanser that purifies skin and prepares it for advanced treatments, combining cleansing and toning into a single step. The mild formulation is gentle enough for all skin types.
Radiant Day SPF 22 is a lightweight, daily use emulsion that delivers brighter, more radiant skin and reduced discoloration by inhibiting unwanted melanin production. It also hydrates the skin while providing broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection.
Transforming Night is a rich hydrating cream that works with the skin's natural nighttime repair and renewal process to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles and dramatically smooth the skin.
