Rapid Regenerating, Firming Face & Neck Moisture Cream

Essential Oil Free

The Advanced Response Complex™ Face & Neck Cream is an innovative formulation that encourages the skin’s own response mechanisms to help regenerate, firm, brighten, smooth and reduce fine lines and wrinkles.  This hydrating Face & Neck Cream is rich and decadent, fast-absorbing, effective enough to use at night and light enough to use during the day as well.  

This unique formulation diminishes the look of fine lines and wrinkles upon application while delivering long-term results. It visibly reduces signs of aging, as well as damage caused by environmental stressors, by activating the body’s own renewal processes. It also uses technology designed to combat environmental stressors, such as blue light.

Plant-Transforming Growth Factor Beta-2 (plant-TGFβ2), Super Antioxidants Chebula and Astaxanthin, Multiple Sources of Peptides, Proprietary Amino Acid Blend, Fermented Minerals and High-Quality Vitamins all work together to feed your skin the foundational elements of what it needs to be its most youthful incarnation. 

The Advanced Response Complex is also packed with Omega 3 Fatty Acids to help support skin’s protective moisture barrier, nurturing a softer, more supple complexion.  


+ Nicotiana Benthamiana Polypeptide complex - Contains a plant-transforming growth factor known as TGFβ2 - and has a collagen production efficacy comparable to retinol and retinoic acid (pairs beautifully with the Straight A Advanced Gentle Retinol if you are using as part of your regimen). After 28 days, a study found up to a 42% increase in skin radiance, 44% decrease in pore size and a 28% increase in skin hydration.

+ Chebula Extract - An ayurvedic fruit and one of the most bioactive, strongest antioxidants, helps to target five signs of aging: minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, visibly even skin tone, smooth the skin and add radiance.  

+ Organic Kangaroo Paw Flower Extract - Has been studied for its ability to restore the look of younger skin by increasing collagen, elastin synthesis and fibroblast activity. An in vivo study looking at its effect on neck wrinkles found that within 28 days the total neck wrinkle area was reduced by up to 65% in participants.  

+ Dipalmitoyl Hydroxyproline - Referred to as “The Dermis Protector” - an ingredient that utilizes hydroxyproline, a component of collagen that helps form the structure of collagen in the skin. In vivo tests show that this product reduces deep wrinkles in the skin by 32% and increases skin moisture by 18% as compared to the placebo. Even more impressive, it has been shown to have an 81% improvement in the protection of elastic fibers and a 94% increase in the inhibition of MMPs, enzymes that contribute to the aging process in the skin. 

+ Asiaticoside & Madecassic Acid & Asiatic Acid - Its primary goal is to repair and restore damaged skin. At Day 4, improvement of the dermis density was 60% as registered in the in vivo study. 

+ Collagen PrePeptide - Uses peptide technology to promote collagen production while reducing wrinkles and plumping the skin. In a comparison of Collagen PrePeptide treated skin and untreated skin, collagen synthesis was 5 times greater in those using Collagen PrePeptide than those who were untreated.  

+ Hexapeptide - A product that is derived from a single-celled species of yeast called saccharomyces cerevisiae known for its ability to protect itself from extreme stress. By isolating aspects of this yeast, it has been shown to have benefits in anti-aging, hydrating, balancing skin tone and promoting collagen production. 

+ Fermented Minerals - These minerals are designed to provide anti-inflammatory effects, increase growth factor expression, enhance the skin barrier function and increase cellular energy respiration. 

+ Sweet Lupine Seeds - Restores resiliency to firm and smooth the skin.  In an in vivo study of this ingredient conducted on 25 volunteers spanning 45-69 in age for 89 days: 92% of volunteers noticed improved firmness of the skin and 72% noticed reduced sagging of the facial contour.

RESULTS: (According to a 6-week Consumer Usage Study)

+ 100% agreed their skin looked bright & more radiant, with a softer & smoother texture.

+ 86% reported improvements in firmness, fine lines & deep-set wrinkles.

+ 86% noticed improved appearance of elasticity & sagging skin on face & neck.

+ 87% noticed a visible improvement in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles & firmness within one hour.

Has a natural fresh green tea scent.

Size: 1.7 fl oz / 50 ml

    This keeps my face moisturizer from night to morning! It feels so hydrating and smells good. So far I've only been using it for 2 weeks, so I haven't seen the results like the before and after pictures claim. Regardless, I'm really enjoying this moisturizer! Well worth the splurge. Also, can we give a moment for the pump? I love that it doesn't compromise the effectiveness of the product! Reminds me of the Drunk Elephant Protini pump! It's my favorite kind! It does squirt out a lot. So I do a half pump. A little goes a long way! May repurchase if I continue seeing amazing results!

    Amazing, visible results right away

    Tried this as a sample and was impressed. Used it at night and the next morning, skin was supple with a nice healthy shine. After a week I ordered one for me and one for my mum. We both love it.

    So far I love it

    I’m 33 and have signs of aging and sensitive skin. This cream hasn’t given me any breakouts or reactions. I mostly use it at night and when I wake up in the morning my skin looks nice. I might need some thing extra for moisturizing as the temperatures get lower but so far I’m really happy and hoping Continued use will help slow any premature aging signs

    Plant magic

    I was searching for something with stem cells and decided something that did not contain human or animal stem cell media was the way to go. I have great skin for my age so I cannot speak to any improvement in lines per se, but I do enjoy this face cream. The studies speak for themselves. It’s moisturizing without feeling heavy and pairs well with any of the actives used in my routine.
