August 27, 2008 Reviewed by Marta 5 Comments
The AminoGenesis brand is an interesting new find. The founder of the company, Ron Cummings, had been hammered by adult chicken pox and he worked with a Dr Lin to find a cure. Potions such as DermaScyne Intense Daily Serum with NMF ($135 for 2oz) originated from this research on healing severe skin problems and contact dermatitis. The approach is simple: pack products full of amino acids.

NMF is the skin's natural moisturizing factor and it is made up of water-soluble compounds that are only found in the top layer of of skin. Because NMF components are water soluble, they are easily leached from the cells as they come into contact with water - which is why repeated contact with water actually makes the skin drier. The 'NMF' in DermaScyne mimics the skin's natural moisturizing factor and is made up of sodium PCA, lactic acid, sodium lactate, urea and collagen amino acids.

AminoGenesis claims that its collection of amino acids are the building blocks of healthy skin, encouraging keratin, collagen and all 18 of the MMP proteins (matrix metallproteinases) that are thought to be responsible for cell proliferation and migration.

There are 17 plant-derived amino acids in Dermascyne Complex. They all have their own little job to do. For example, histidine helps protect from sun damage and neutralizes free radicals, arginine speeds the healing of damaged skin and wounds, threonine helps form collagen and elastin.

    Again I look at the ingredients this product has Methylparaben and fragrance. These are not beneficial to the body. I run away again

    Hope lives! The DermaScyne Serum with amino acids is a fresh approach for those of us who are not thrilled with the drying effect of peptide combinations. Am I qualified to try it? Dry, ageing, sun damaged skin. Need I say more? Ready, willing & able.
