Relastin is the first skin care product that actually promotes the formation of elastin, a key component to youthful skin. Elastin, the connective protein that allows skin to spring back and become smooth again after you laugh or smile, normally starts to diminish after puberty. The Zinc Firming Complex in all Relastin products penetrates the skin's upper layers to reach the dermis and stimulate the production of elastin. By helping restore elastin to its more youthful levels, Relastin helps smooth and firm those areas where aging is most noticeable on the face, neck and particularly around the eyes. The results? Smoother, firmer, younger looking skin.
