from the Cellex-C website :
The Pioneer of Vitimin C Skin Care Technology
About a million bottles of the wrinkle creams and serums Lorraine Meisner developed have been sold worldwide, even though her cream, Cellex-C, costs between $42 and $195 per container.
In Australia - which is affected by a large hole in the ozone layer, leaving the skin of its largely pale, freckled population of Celtic descent ravaged by the sun — it is the No. 1-selling skin treatment. Dermatologists and plastic surgeons are selling it to their clients because it cuts healing time in half after laser and chemical face peels. Elle magazine called Cellex-C “the underground favorite of socialites and celebrities.”
Although Meisner works in laboratories with state-of-the-art computers, she concocted Cellex-C with a mortar and pestle, like a medieval alchemist. She settled on a mixture of 10 percent ascorbic acid (a pure form of vitamin C) with the mineral zinc and the amino acid tyrosine.
Designed to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, Cellex-C products cause skin to gradually appear firmer and smoother with improved color, tone, and texture.
