What’s Behind Macrene Actives?

Dr. Macrene was inspired by Nobel Prize-winning work conducted over decades on DNA repair molecules that serve to protect the skin from the damage that causes skin aging and skin cancer. This science, performed by Drs. Thomas Lindahl, Paul Modrich, and Aziz Sancar who received the Nobel Prize in 2015 for their work, was the basis of one of the major categories of sea and plant-derived actives liposomally-delivered in Macrene Actives. Always ahead of the field, Dr. Macrene recognized the genius of these discoveries and developed and patented Macrene Actives to deliver these and many other classes of ingredients with a total of up to 50 mainly plant-derived actives that address all the aspects of skin health.

Macrene Actives High Performance Cream



Third-Party Clinical Laboratory Testing

Macrene Actives was tested in clinical trials, using objective tools designed to quantitatively measure changes in the multiple categories of cosmetic skin aging at 4, 6, and 8 weeks of daily use. The results demonstrated statistically significant decreases in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, the appearance of cosmetic blotches, and improvement in texture and skin tone using objective clinical measures by computer analysis. Not one case of irritation was observed, demonstrating excellent tolerability in all skin types.



Post-Manufacture Testing 

Macrene Actives is the first cosmetic cream to conduct post-market testing of the activity of the actives, shown to maintain 100% antioxidant action up to 6 months after jar opening and to maintain virtually all actives at original levels up to 3 years post-manufacture.

The actives in this highly advanced cream are the culmination of the very best scientific research from the lab, proven to also work on a clinical level, so that just one jar of Macrene Actives delivers results in all aspects of skin health, and systematically helps address the appearance of the many cosmetic changes of the skin over time, all this without toxins.
